Crochet Car

I was checking out the funny site You Drive What? while passing time at work and found the best car ever!

Bob & Weave

I own a stationwagon so I think it would take far too long to knit or crochet a cover for it

I Love Knitted Mittens

I live in Australia; it's seldom cold enough for gloves in the moderate city or Sydney, let alone Mittens. But how cute are mittens? Too cute! I also have the added benefit not knowing how annoying it is to have to wear them so I love them.
These musing on mittens were brought on by Morehouse Merino releasing this very cute Owl Mitten pattern as part of a knitting kit.

In celebration I thought I would share some of my other favourite mitten patterns.

These cute owls are the Owlie Owl Mittens by Betsy Farquhar

Both the above Fishermans Friend and Cat Mittens are by Jorid Linvik
Click on them to see more Norwegian knitting awesomeness.

I love the above mittens and their creators are amazing but the below two are my absolute favourites, for totally opposite reasons.

These are called Glitten by Laris Designs.
They are called this because they are glove/mittens.
I love the technical cable style and the fact that they are a revolutionary clothing item!
Also they remind me of Spock!!

Deep Blue Sea Shark Mittens by Breeanna Sveum (click on sharkeys for her blog)
Simple simple knit but so cute and funny.
I would wear these in summer at the beach!

Aquatic Cuties

My employer Optus is running a competition for photos taken of Australian wildlife to print in a calendar.
I thought I would submit some cool/cute aquatic creatures to combat the horrifically predictable fuzzy animals that are sure to appear in the competition.

Here are three little cuttlefish hanging out waiting to be fed at Manly Oceanworld
The must have been about 15cm long SO CUTE!

The common Moon Jelly looks totally awesome under the fluro lights at Sydney Aquarium.

This has to be my total favourite! This is an epaulette shark.
They are a cute nocturnal carpet sharky. This one is only about 20cm long.
They don't get much longer than a meter.
