The original Dawn of the Dead or the 1979 Grand Final, I don't know which is more gruesome.

Hi Alison

Did you ever post your grid for the Carlton logo on the vest you knitted for your nephew? My son is a mad keen Carlton supporter and I wanted to knit him a hot water bottle with the logo on. Your grid would save me having to make my own! Can you please let me know if you still have it? Thanks heaps.
