Knitted Election??!!

The paint fumes probably are the reason….

…I seem to keep seeing knitting  where I shouldn’t….

…even in the election coverage!

This strange and slightly worrying tenancy started when I was in Israel in 2008 (When I made Geno, and Hedera on holiday)…everyone else saw a sculpture dedicated to world peace…I saw…a giant ball of wool!

So why the paint fumes?

I’ve been at the DIY again. Up til now the only person using the grubby, tired, sick-green conservatory was Thug.  Occasionally for it’s acoustic properties for a good long “Meowing Opera” but mostly for his afternoon nap, on a thoughtfully placed blanket, when the sun was out…

I was jealous. I really wanted a comfy chair out there for knitting in the sun.
A quick tidy up, lead to a quick clean which lead to a total inside and out scrub complete with Ben and a water powered death laser (pressure washer to you and me)!

Once we had gone that far we kinda had to paint it – there’s not much wall so we chose a brave, strong green to bring the garden in…

Yep that’s my garden knitting chair through the windows. The chair I restored a while ago – one must have a choice of knitting venues, suitable for all weathers  😉

So that explains the fumes…what about a knitted election?

Have you watched the BBC coverage? Have you looked at the BBC Election website?

Seen the BBC election logo at the top of every page?

Am I obsessed or are those a bunch of knitting needles??

Once you’ve seen it – you can’t un-see it….  😀

    Yes I saw the knitting needles too!

    And an inspired green wall looking through to you garden.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who sees knitting and yarn in everyday objects and logos. (My hubby just tells me that my obsession is getting out of hand.But what does he know.)
    The conservatory looks perrrrrfect for knitting, as long as Thug doesn’t mind sharing. Dawn

    Definitely a large ball of wool in Israel and some knitting needles on the BBC website.

    The conservatory looks great, I’m getting mine rebuilt soon, I can’t wait to sit out there and knit – assuming we get a summer this year!

    Do you think it’s a subversive move by the BBC knitting group. Can we expect more of this type of thing?

    (Also pleased it wasn’t just me that saw it that way.)
