Finally! A new post!

Well, I have a few finished objects to share at long last. It's been a rough couple of weeks here, I started getting quite sick a few weeks ago but wasn't intelligent enough to take stock and realise there may be a reason my blood sugar levels were fluctuating. As it turns out, I had an infection in one of my teeth. While my body was fighting that though, another infection came in and king hit me - this time a UTI. For me, with a kidney reflux issue, this meant that it very quickly progressed to a kidney infection and a breif admission to hospital only to be discharged very quickly (thankfully!) with a fistful of antibiotics of a few varieties. I am on the mend now, but in the meantime, I'm trying to think of them as not-so-tasty smarties. lol.

First off, a soaker knit for a friends soon to come along wee chicken, knit in MonsterKnits 'Tiger Cub' colourway.

Secondly a beanie I made for my own gorgeous Mr Mayhem, in the same yarn. See that photogenic quality? He doesn't get that from me.

Thirdly, a soaker for Miss Chaos. Not sewn up yet, as I am still debating embellishing.

And lastly some photo's of a pair of shorties I made to take the sting out the tail of a bad situation :)

I am more than likely going to be kept busy at the moment however! I have One of my babies birthdays in two weeks time, and the other one 4 weeks after that! As much as I love the growing and exploring stage they are in right now, sometimes I wish they could stay wee and cute forever. They grow up too darn quick!

And finally, a note on why I have closed my store on WAHMania. I don't want this to start arguments all over again, but I feel my reasoning behind it has been misconstrued.

I did not close because of the administration of WAHMania. I closed because of the lynchmob that occurred.

I will not be held to be indebted to people I provided a product to - I will stay at home to care for my kids, business or no business. And I will not be told by any outside party (aside from those I have paid for the pleasure) how to run my business. I will not be held to ransom via threats made about boycotts, or bitching on public and not so public forums.

And while in hindsight what happenned was silly - that is all it was. I am not an easily offended person by any means, and I was not offended by it. There are far more important things in this world to be offended by and worried about than an internet prank. I feel much of it has been taken out of context by people who have something to gain, and I am also not much one for following blind sheep without the questioning of peoples motives.

Please if you feel the need to bitch about what I have written, take it up with me in here, please leave the people (and moderators) of Wahmania, EB and NC alone. Comments are enabled should you choose to do so.
