The feathers fly


It is most of a hat made from fake Feathers yarn and a big ball of acrylic on a round loom like a big French Knitting form that this under 14s centre forward is wearing. She was unaffectedly working on it between soccer matches at Young yesterday. I was chuffed.

In the passenger seat of a cab in Canberra today I knitted on a TTWC. The driver said he'd never had a passenger knit in his taxi in 20 years on the job. On reflection, he decided it wasn't as entertaining as the woman putting her knickers on because she'd forgotten to before she left the house, but it was much better than someone cleaning their shoes or putting on make-up.


Quite liked this graffiti in a loo at the Australian National University today.

I had to go to urbandictionary.com to look up "chuffed". It sounds like you were upset and I thought, well, a hat made of feathers and acrylic is not my cup of tea but good for her, she is using her time wisely. But I learned that chuffed means pleased. I guess we should be pleased that young folks are knitting, no matter what they knit (or what they knit with). Someday someone will introduce her to some real nice wool and she will be lost forever.....

I do love uni toilet graffiti. It makes me all nostalgic for the days when I used to contribute... I'm very glad to see today's students are keeping up the tradition!

Love the graffiti - and the hat - KIP in whatever form needs to be encouraged!

Very good to see a young thing knitting in public, she will soon move on to bigger things!

Can you imagine trying to put your knickers on in a TAXI, good heavens! LOL! I'm surprised the taxi driver hadn't had anyone knit en route before.

Very funny graffiti :)

Excellent knitting in public on two counts. May I ask how you come to be taking pictures in the loo!!?
