I thought I would amuse some people with my last post. I should have posted the actual song lyrics too..But didnt think of that til later.

Monday was my birthday. Mmm...Several people forgot (seem to get that as you get older..would think it would be the other way around)

Got some good pressies. Still waiting on several.

Knitting has been happening..

No piccies...You will all have to live! lol

I have been having one of those weeks...Dont ask...You dont want to know.

Fall Out Boy Misheard lyrics - This aint a scene Arms race

This is so classic! I love it, a fan of the actual song so the misheard lyrics is a crack!

Can anyone say CRAZY...OMG its been mad around here!!!

Where to start! Well..Firstly Easter...Yep..hectic..Kids got spoilt..Just me or do you almost break the bank getting Easter Eggs as the years go by? Goodness they were costly this year!!

But I suppose I should start the Thursday just before the Easter Weekend started! We get a phone call from Adam's father. Grandma (Adam's Grandmother the girls great grandmother) is in hospital. She had a mini stroke!!!! She stayed there all Easter. She broke out Easter Monday!

Easter was full on, as Easter is with both girls home every day.

THEN, last Thursday (a week ago) Adams mother rings up...Nan (Adams nan...girls Great nan) is in hospital!!!! She had a fall and broker her collarbone and wrist on the right side...SIGH...

Friday we were meant to head down (me as in the girls and me) to HER place for the night so I could get HER present for me for my birthday (which is next Monday, 23rd April)....But since her mother was in hospital she picked us up EARLY Sat morning and we stayed Sat night. Now..most of you know how I feel about HER...And I am getting SO SICK of staying down there by myself with the girls ALONE...Its HIS mother for goodness sakes!! The past THREE times we stayed down there he didnt (WORK is a great excuse)...

Well...Are you wondering what she gave me for my birthday? I am still trying to work out if it was one of the best or the worst pressies. It took 6hrs..Caused a lot of back, shoulder, feet and arm pain (for several days later)....But THIS (below people!!) is what I produced from it...

I still have to finish up the raw edges. But once I get some bias binding on it it will be done (and the wiring thingy that needs to be put on it)...

I have also finished up all the knitting gifties I have made for landlords grandkids (and step grandkid)....Wanna see?

Gift that started it all. Purple cotton teddy bear for 1yo daughter....Then I thought I best cover the rest of em!

So I knitted this for the baby (it will fit him for winter!!)

And so the step daughter doesnt feel left out I made her a "Fruit Loop" version of my ever fave gift hat! I hope she likes it..She is in that Tween stage and I doubt has ever had anything hand knitted before!

I never got to learn to spin during the Easter break like I was hoping to. Maybe another time. I have found someone else I am hoping will teach me. Just have to iron out everything with her first.

I have sold most my wool I have on my other site. I have a few more I have to list though (including 8ply/DK)...Just gotta get em all PUURRDY to show them off to you all. One step closer to opening my Etsy shop too!!

I have something else to show off to you all...But I forgot to take a piccie of it and its too dark now! So next time I promise! And I wont take as long next time either. Lets hope my life isnt so hectic for awhile! lol

Okies best be off..Dessert is ready (choc self saucing pud with custard)..Catch you all later! And Happy knitting!!!

You can leave your hat on

Still having semi problems with Blogger. Do you know how bad it is when you have to clean out your cache (thanks for the suggestion Lynne)...defrag your whole computer and then run a FULL virus check..Then hope it works? Thing is..99% of the time it does!! And I don't know WHY! but I am really getting sick of it.

Wool...Available to buy...Now...Go HERE...Pretty colours! Only available to Aussie for sale (but will swap with people outside of Australia for sock wool, or even sugar and cream that I cant get here). I also take orders (if there is a regular range colour you don't see there but want..order it)! And I am willing to try new colourways for people (and you will get to name them). Also if you order 6 skeins or more, Postage is FREE (in Aus only. There is a limit of how many skeins I will swap to overseas at the moment since I have to take the postage there too)! How is that for a great offer! Will be listing some of my semi-precious stitch markers I made ages ago too soon.

Been doing some knitting (read LOTS)...After doing that gorgeous hat last time (that was piccied last post)..I have now done...wait for it....ELEVEN of them!! Yes you heard me right!! And so you don't get sick of seeing lots of piccies (I did two in the same wool as the last one so there is that one in the last post, in that size and a 2yo size) and the ones to follow (I stuck them all together for you). And yes...Rachelle got sick of the piccies by the end! They were taken this morn. Only 1 was taken yesterday with Harley before my batteries went flat.

I have listed in the piccies what wool was used for them. And yes some are HUGE on Shelly. But they are for older kids/young adults. the denim pink and denim blue ones don't have a brim and they wont. I like them the way they are. The hand dyed hand spun ones are for the girls. The rest..are going elsewhere...

Also I have finished something for me..I think I mentioned it last post? Well here is a piccie for you (not a GOOD piccie granted..But a piccie all the same). Its my GORGEOUS STR socks!! They are also my Lucky socks!! I have worn them twice at bowling and done well! I love them!! I loooove them!!!

Last night SBK was on..Another bad race for racing fans (well..Aussie ones)..one of the guys I follow fell hard...and from the sounds of it has lost some of his little finger on the right hand (good thing he is left handed..but its still gonna cause problems with riding). A few weeks ago in Moto one of the guys Adam follows fell hard and did himself some serious damage. But he is coming out if it (out of his coma, no brain damage, needs surgery on his face though still).. Its been a BAD year for bike fans you so far, and its only just started!..I am hoping no one dies before the end of it.

Ahem..I mentioned last post how I got something in the mail and I don't know where the person got my address from..I feel very toolish now (crossed between foolish and a tool) cos..guess what..I GAVE her my address when I contacted her! Man my memory has been shot the past few weeks..lack of sleep and all....It was Donyale..She sent me some gorgeous fleeeeeeeeeece!! in white..I got it through the fantastic Good Yarn Karma! Go...Look..Feel the love...Share the love!!

Rachelle spent Monday night in Hospital (missed her first school excursion Tueday cos of it). Bad case of croup. Then Saturday she was sick vomiting all day! Seems to be good again now (except for a snotty nose).

Okies..I am offski..Knitting to do.. Food to eat (been up for hours still not had breakfast)...

Take care and happy knitting!
