Well a lot has happened since I last wrote on Monday.

Yesterday was of course SNB meet-up day, someone from an unnamed other organisation told me they thought the name was offensive.
I'm still trying to decide wheather I should be outraged or more aware. I think I'll stick with outrage. These people haven't seen my cookie cutter collection yet.

I worked on the Alien yesterday, or attempted to. I didn't get a lot of knitting done at yesterday's meeting. However I sat down last night with it and managed to knit my way through to row 60 on the fifth face. It'll all soon be done, and that just leaves the sixth (and possibly final) face!

My mother went into hospital today for her operation, she has a recurring ear infection which left unattended could see her lose what hearing she has left. She's had hearing aids since she was very young. All has apparently gone well and we're (all the family) trapesing up to see her tonight.

This afternnoon I hit the gym again and made a bit more of an effort with my cardio - it's my least favourite bit. Wished I had more time to put more effort into my weight training - that is so my fave bit!
And upon discovering this news article, I thought I should share here as it's kinda topical.

And along the same thread and because I found it amusing, this little gem.

Until next time,
A bona fide red head and damn proud of it.

I have become obsessed with knitting blogs lately and I was idly browsing and found the Launceston SnB site and then your blog!!! Just yesterday I requested that the Library buy Debbie Stoller's new book, Stitch'n Bitch Nation. I really like the wrap around Lucky Cardigan. I am knitting a cardigan and a jumper from a pattern I made up so I could knit the vertical stripes sideways, and I am doing Fibonacci stripes too!!! I will keep an eye out for when the next Launceston meeting is. Thanks!!!!
