On election day (and let us speak no more about it) I thought it was appropriate to go shopping for the yarn for my Julia Gillard memorial knitted kangaroo, the one that the former former Prime Minister was knitting as a gift for Kate Middleton and which caused the Australian political media to become even more unhinged than they already were. For a recap see back here.

Anyway, Lincraft were having 30% off a lot of their yarn range including Cleckheaton, and the kangaroo pattern recommends Cleckheaton yarn, so it seemed destined somehow. The pattern is actually for a red kangaroo but I decided to go along with Julia’s colours and chose Cleckheaton Country 8 ply in beige and cream.

The pattern also says that the red kangaroo is six feet tall, which got me worried for a moment until I realised they meant the actual kangaroo, not the knitted version.

  1. That last sentence almost made me snort coffee out of my nose. Chin up after the weekend. There are always more elections.
