The red car and the blue car had a race…

All that red could do was stuff his face!

A guy at work spotted me knitting the blue car and asked if I was going to make a red one, after saying I had already made a red one he grinned and proceeded to start singing the Milky way car advert song. Even more concerning was when another guy joined in…

For those who don’t know the advert but are curious…

Yeah…anyhow, this week saw two blue cars on the knitted car front. Next is a car with a mind of its own and starred originally in a 1969 Disney movie…

On the non car knitting front, I finished my other project!

A cute shawlette and a free pattern – Now in a minute by Brenda Dayne. You use several colours and gradient them together, mine is cream to black.

Want to see it blocked for a better look at its shape?

For some reason it acted as a summoning circle during blocking, every time I chased one cat off, another took its place…

Lastly, as a special little extra, or should I say teeny tiny…?

Pikachus! Yep, I’m celebrating the release of Detective Pikachu, saw it on the opening night with the kids having a sleepover at the inlaws so I could enjoy it proper! And had a bit of a date night with sushi to start…

There was four of the guys in total, one was given away and the other three are up to mischief somewhere in the house…

Here’s one next to a 2p just so you can see how teeny tiny they are! They’re based on a free mochimochi pattern – Tiny Baby Bunnies

That’s all for this week!

    I had completely forgotten that advert until now! Absolutely brilliant!

    And the shawl is stunning, the colour gradient worked really well.

    Glad to hear you got a date night and saw Detective Pikachu kid-free 🙂

      I too had forgotten that advert, hence my confusion that the guys at my work had all just gone completely mad…madder…?

      And thank you for the compliments on the shawl!

      Also, I should arrange more date nights, it was really fun having that break, and gave me much needed chill time and ‘us’ time, but I was missing my terrors before it even got to bedtime!
