Few things

Posting a merriment of new piccies on my Blog and on Ravelry. I HAVE been knitting even though I have been silent as well. We got a new Digital Camera Thursday. Didn't see any point in doing a post before then because I have noticed a rather big lack of comments when I don't post piccies.

Firstly is Pussycat Doll Harley modelling an ordered Cable and Rib beanie (yes I know you cant see the cable but shhhh you get the best view!!! lol). Will be mailing this off Monday now that its been paid for.

And below is a newborn jumper for a friend of mine in WA who gave birth to her 4th child (and third daughter) just a few weeks ago. I also made a rather cute little baby hat to go with it. This is number 9 of my 12 in 12 (and the hat was done so it didn't seem like I was cheating with a newborn jumper, which I know I am not, its still a jumper!! But its not a very big one).

Below is another of my 12 in 12 for 2009 finished items. Number 10. Another newborn piece, but Cardigan this time. This is for next door neighbours 4th child (and third son). Who is almost 2 months old but was a tad prem to begin with. Did a beanie for this one too so it didn't seem like I was cheating with another newborn item.

I also have finished the body of 11 of 12 in 12, gotten almost half way through friends sock, and cruising through the legwarmers (which I then have to make a beret to go with). So see I have been doing heaps of knitting!! lol

We finally took the car for a long trip. Thursday went down and saw the BIL. Yes I was desperate if it meant taking a voluntary we suggested trip to see that woman. But she has been good of late (rare I know) so it wasn't that bad.

Okies folkies. Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Happy knitting!!

well lookie there

Found out today that our new car has better features then I first thought. LOOK!! a yarn holder so my wool doesn't go all over the place on me while I knit (yes center pull ball..would also take hand wound balls really well too)!!

I really do have my knitting mojo back with a vengeance!!! Now that the newborn jumper is finished and the newborn cardigan, I am working on matching little hats for them (doing the hat for the cardigan at the moment). I have also finished one of the Finns socks, I have gotten half way through two orders. I finished the main part of my hoodie. I am cruising all over the place (and stopping myself from getting bored).

We are all in different stages of being sick. Getting over it all now I hope and lets hope none of us have backwards steps.

Had parent teacher day today for both the girls. They seem happy with them so far with progress. Harls teacher thinks she is a delight and a lovely child. Piglets teacher is very happy with her and we can see no problem with her education at all (she is 2 above the standard for English-Lit and 3 above the standard for Numeracy). Harls needs some work with her English-Lit but we always knew that was never going to be a strong point for her.

Okies folkies..I promise next time there will be more knitting related piccies! I have heaps to show you all.

Happy knitting, hope you all have a great rest of week and weekend.
