G'Day, Mate!

Hopping in with no lack of pictures in my pouch today! There has been much knitting and much craziness since last I blogged! I am really loving the Wonderful Wallaby once again! This is still the first one, and I am plugging along, loving the knitting, but getting tired of the grey! But, even in the absence of bright colors, I am having some dump-truck fun, apparently! Yay! I am currently working on the second sleeve so I can finish the body of this thing, then on to the hood!
Here is the other reason I am tiring of the grey! It is my Cardigan in fingering-weight yarn. . .it is coming along, but going slow, as you might expect for a project in such a fine gauge. . .overall, I am loving it, and I cannot wait until I can wear it. . .this will be one of my favorites, I am sure! At least with this one, I get the pink-and-yellow peekaboo every 10th row! Yay!
And here is the bigger picture. . .back finished, first front started! Hey! Check out that cool jewelry on the knitting! haha!
Here's some more Jewelry to check out! I made some more hand-knit bracelets!
One with pink teardrops and green "leaves,"
. . .and one with beads of pink in many shapes and sizes!
Eventually, I will have bracelets like these for sale in the shop (along with their cousins that are already there), but these were for some friends that I spent the day shopping with today! (Sorry, no people pics. . .why did I not bring my camera?) Hi, Girls! It was fun! remember, make the "T" into an "I to remove the toggle clasp!
Now for some PrettyKnitty News. . .
You may know that my hours at my "regular job" were cut back a few months ago, giving me an extra day off each week (Wednesday). I found out recently that today is my last Wednesday off. Now, that's partly a good thing (more paycheck = more yarn and supplies), and partly a bad thing (more hours = less time for blogging and other fun stuff). I have been pretty good about blogging twice a week, and I will try my best to keep it up, but the mid-week update may be a little more sporadic from here on out. If that does indeed come to pass, I will compensate by making my "Saturday Evening Post" even funnier than it already is. . .
OK. . .well, it will be funnier to me. . .
Anyhow, yeah. . .
Knit in Good Health!
