I knitted this Kinder Surprise for my friend Karen's birthday! I think it may just have sparked a need to knit all the candy I ever loved as a child..

Wow! What a day!
I picked my cousins Jasmine and Jordan up at 5:30am this morning and we headed into town eating banana bread, parked in Beresford Square and got to work installing my Guerilla Knitting. It was such an exhilarating experience and I am so happy with the outcome (hence all these photos!) Jasmine was the perfect helper installing everything and Jordan has taken some great images. The weather was perfect too, not raining and not cold! Amazing.
The images speak for themselves really, we installed in the dark but came back later and got some shots of everything in the light. And not too soon as it turns out. There were only 3 of the 6 toadstools left by 10:30am when Barbara from the KRd Business Association got to work and the bra was stolen by 12:30pm!! I am astonished it happened so fast and in broad daylight!
Thanks so much to Jasmine and Jordan Dodson for all your help today, Barbara for commissioning what is the most exciting thing I've done to date and Lou from OUi Boutique for facilitating the installation (of lightbulb cosies) that got this all started. I'm feeling such a great sense of accomplishment but really need to go and have a nap, I've been in such a frenzy ever since installing!
GO AND CHECK IT OUT!!

I've been putting off knitting this bird for aaages because the only pattern I could find didn't really make sense but I finally finished it this morning, after some modifications..
These images of the bird and nest are, for the first time in quite a while, images that I am completely happy with!
After these images I think I've decided not to sew the bird onto the nest/eggs like I had planned to because she looks much better placed at a distance. I don't know how this will work on the nikau palm they are destined for but I'll give it a go!
I put some wire into the toadstools this morning to keep them nice and steady when they're in the traffic island. I think once they are in a suitable environment they look less like the popsicles they resemble otherwise which is a bit of relief I have to say!
INSTALLATION THIS THURSDAY!!

I've commissioned my cousin Jasmine to make me a banner with my name on it! Sharon Margaret. This test was done in order to prove that black blanket stitching looked good..

I had my tonsils out last Monday and seeing as I've had to take two weeks off work I wrote myself a list of knitting to get done for Craft Hatch in Melbourne and as of today I've finished!
I took some new product shots on a mirror, I am not entirely happy with these, the backgrounds vary a bit too much so I'd like to try again with something other than my off-white ceiling reflecting in the glass.. wonder how patterned material would look?
