So, the charming lemon yellow layette I've been working on is a-ok :) I sent it off to karratha this morning :) Because, every summer baby in the desert needs a hat, booties and matching mittens :) For patterns, I used the patons pixie hat, with adjusted cable, the booties can be found here, though some of it is a little hard to understand if your first language isn't English, and the mittens are here. Though, I did adjust both patterns so that they weren't solid garter stitch, but could concievably be a set. Yes, my spelling leaves much to be desired. And, I know I'm silly, and didn't take a photo before sending it :/ Sorry! Also, I'm super happy now, because I have a whole 2 followers!! HOORAY!

I've always loved that word. Mo-no-ton-y. Its fun to say.. Anyway, on to the knitting stuff. I've finished my booties, and they turned out quite well :) The blanket has stopped being a one piece be all or end all, and now its going to be done in squares, so that when I get bored with something, I can just start a new pattern! Hooray! I'm back on track with the jumper, because I finially reached the armholes, so it wasn't just the same thing constantly. I get annoyed when knitting patterns are very repeditive.

So, my photography skills are lacking.

Anyway, booties. Yes, my room in the background is very messy. Its how I like it.. *cough*

So, the baby stuff is all working out fairly well, and I'm currently looking for a nice cardigan pattern for my first cousin once removed (Flynn, as featured here) There's also a pair of wristlets in the making, because my arms get cold while I'm at work, and I need to be able to type.

They're a pattern I'm making up as I go along, and will just be done in stocking stitch me thinks. I'm using a synthetic moda vera yarn, in orange, which has some interesting black bits intersperced. should be fun :)

So, I've finished 4 projects in 3 days \m/ SO PROUD! That means, a teacher will no longer have cold hands while he works, a baby in the tropics will have a warm head, an iPod will be snuggly warm in an Australian summer, and I won't have to knit myself a beanie while wearing a shop bought one :) hooray!
Beatles in the background, and my little teddy modelling a yellow pixie hat :)
The gloves are harder to model, as they're wayyy too big for me :s But, I will get him to be photographed :)

My beanie, in verigated 100% acrylic, which I am very happy with,
As modeled by John, my oldest teddy

With a ribbon for overdose awareness, and a doll made by HIV +ve women in South Africa
Also the iPod case, in orange (ooh, orange!) Which will be modeled by the iPod it was made for, which I haven't actually met yet...

So, photo time is over, and back to making a jumper to procrastinate from writing about the state of coffee farmers lives in Nicaragua. hooray!
