I've been meaning to share this with you for ages - Hubby was given this mini knitted beauty on his birthday - it doesn't need even occasional watering (yes, he can kill a cactus)! A great use of fluffy yarn. The whole thing is about 6 cm tall (including the tiny ceramic pot). It looks remarkably real!
This arrived today - mmmmmmmm. Bendigo Rustic 12 ply, in Damson. What a glorious colour! This is destined to become a Hemlock Ring Blanket for a friend I made at Quest. J lives in Tasmania, where it's very chilly; she's not able to knit (CFS / sore hands), and asked if I could make a purple lap rug for her. I am happy to oblige!
In work news, we're sorting out my author contract this week, and I hope to find out who my Project Editor is (they're the main person I'll work with on the book). I've also become a professional member of the Australian Society of Authors, and tomorrow is my first day at the Nasho :)
ETA : The story behind the cactus - the mother of one of my sister's London friends made it. Sadly, she died recently, and her daughter found new homes for all her knitted cactus creations, and my sister was given this one. And then my sister gave it to my husband.
Working the Nasho wasn't so good today - the corrals with power (for laptops) are packed, and right next to where the library is being extended, ie a construction site. No nice view, not quiet. I also was falling asleep, and came home and went to bed (sick). Bleah.
