knitting and sushi

The cardigan is zipping along .... I think I'll look for a tiny cardy knit pattern for Clementine, my clothing deprived Blythe girl. My next knitted children's piece will definitely be using a higher ply wool and bigger needles - I wouldn't suggest anyone begin knitting clothes with 4 ply wool! Thanks Melissa, Lisa and Julia for sharing your knowledge and comments. It's nice to know someone out there is reading :)

aaaaand, tonight I made delicious sushi on a whim with teriyaki chicken, avocado, carrot, cucumber and the my favourite Japanese rice addition - furikake. It's a dry seasoning available in various savoury flavours which you normally add to onigiri or inside sushi prior to rolling. Yummo!

Thanks for your support with job hunting,it is much appreciated x


  1. Your knitting looks beautiful! And I agree about small ply wool - I started a shawl for Mum in fingering weight wool (2 ply) and have had to let it go for a while. :/
    And the sushi looks yummo too. You really can't beat the homemade stuff.

  2. I dream of sushi. Oh to live in civilization and not be pregnant. I'm totally jealous of your knitting.

  3. I've just realised I may have some small knitting patterns for your Clementine. I have a book called "Knitted babes" (
    and there are a few knitting patterns for tiny little jumpers and cardigans etc. I'll try to bring it to Brown Owls once we are over this bloody horrible swine flu.
