Blankety blank

...home alone, I decided it was time to sew all these knitted pieces (that never quite became the finished piece) together!

Another little blanket to add to the big blanket I have been piecing together over the past few years of Knit and Destroy. Here are big blanket and little blanket together on the sofa!

Now it's time for me to get under it and get warm, mmmmm. K x

Alison Erika Forde

My friend Alison Erika Forde is a super rad painter, who is going to have a super rad year in twenty ten, she has also just got a website finished by Knit And Destroys super ace wing man Ben, in the words of The Beastie Boys ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out !

I wish I had the...

Last week Kandy told me about a competition launched on Harry Hill's TV Burp. We have all seen the knitted creature, right (that looks a little crocheted to me, anyways) well, now you can send in your knitted (and I think crochet) creations, which then get judged my a knitted Simon Cowell and Cheryl Coles amongst others, then you win Harry Hill goodies. We were unsure whether this was fo'realz until Saturday night proved it wasn't!
I am sad that this is a crafty competition I cannot enter as I am really, really
bad at kitting and have only just mastered a chain in crochet, le sigh. We did spend most of yesterday morning thinking what Kandy could knit to enter.
So while I sit here and wish and she sits there and ponders, you have until 5pm tonight (Tuesday) to vote for Amos & Ruth .
