I have received some beatiful work from Jejune and Dotter including one very recalcitrant and perhaps slightly remorseful escapologist lamb - Lulu http://www.jejunesplace.blogspot.com. Knowing that her heart is in the right place although there is no strong confirmation that all the bling has been safely returned to K, one Lulu is in my care for the next six weeks. In all fairness, Lulu should not be denied the audiences she is used to attracting, and so being asked to pass judgement upon her actions, Lulu will be doing community service in the Knit1 Blog1 exhibition as of 13 July. In this way she will still be accessiable to her fans and all visitors are welcome, with visiting hours between 10am - 4pm Tuesday to Friday and 12 - 4pm Sat & Sun.
Gifts such as file cakes are welcome, rotten tomato throwing isnt, but people will be able to view the (in)famous lamb in person in the gallery. Just in case you can't come in person regular updates of her wellbeing will be posted on this blogsite. After talking to Jejune, I know that we will have to ask all who attend the opening not to pass Lulu any wine at this key event, I'm assured it could get nasty!
Numerous events are planned to coincide with Knit1 Blog1. We have a number of workshops for all knitting levels coming up and we are also having a blogging workshop where any number of blogging tricks will be exposed. Ampersand Duck is hosting this for Craft ACT and I can assure you, that along with my knitting workshop attendances, this will definintely be a high light as I am in dire need of a few tips.
Has anyone ever wondered how hard it is to get around blogging. Most people work it out as they go, and yep that's me, but for an erratic time consumed blogger, sometimes I just want instant knowledge. Hence the workshop.
And I am definitley chekcing into the knitting workshops, socks, scarves, how to interpret patterns, how to rescue stalled projects its all there.
All the times etc will be posted next week. So stay tuned and see you at Knit1 Blog1 - or visit this site between 13 July and 26 August and post a comment.

It is such a big task and takes more time than I really have. The Craft ACT board and staff came together for a planning day and from that we got our 20 page plan (presecribed length) and a few attachments. Phew. My desk is still complete chaos as I am trying to catch up with everything else.
Now it is on to much more fun stuff. This is the fabulous scarf from http://www.asiaadventure.blogspot.com/- Striped Scarf using her own pattern arrived from Canada yesterday. Thanks so much its just great to get some knitting out of the virtual world here in Canberra and see it and touch it. It is very appropriate for Canberra as we are at the coldest part of the year and its all about scarves here!

Things are picking up and Bronwen and I are becoming busy emailing and blogging.
But we would like more - much more knitting from anyone who wants to join in this project.
So here it is:
CALLING ALL KNITTING BLOGGERS: If you would like to send some of your knitting to be in the first exhibition about knitters who blog then contact us. We would love to chat to you and have you and your knitting in the show. All you have to do is send it in and we will send it back.
Got to My Profile and email Barbara and I will send you the participation form.
Here is a picture of something that Bronwen knitted that sits on my wall at home, I love it!
I need to add some more images including logs's but will have to do that from work as I can't change the picture formats of the logo's here at home.
Hope to hear from you soon.
