Newly arrived in Tweed City to support the new graduates
So the current media circus swirling around Julia Gillard is to do with an article for the Women’s Weekly showing her knitting. Now it’s not exactly a secret that she knits, this has been known for some time. Yet suddenly she’s being attacked all over the place for it. Mainly old white men are calling her ridiculous for showing off a hobby popularised by 50’s housewives. Like this trite example:
She is giving encouragement to young female politicians by plying a hobby now synonymous with mad old aunts – Andrew Bolt
Like he’s such an expert!?

There was a handful of little Vicuna running around… adorbz!
I don’t know why you would cut an alpaca to look like a teddy bear this way, but it was a funny sight to see!
Meanwhile this lady lamb probably really wants a haircut! Such beautiful color in her locks! If I were adept at spinning, I’d be all over that!
The other half of the Wool Market is a yarn-lover’s paradise to be sure. Lots of fun and magical yarns and roving being sold! I found a booth that sold Qiviut yarn- made from Northern Musk Oxen (See Wikipedia for more crazy info on this animal) I couldn’t afford the $90 for 100% Qivuit, so I…
