LSG bracelet swap

Behold my awesome friendship bracelets! I have embraced my inner 12 year old! Yes, the upper one says "TWAT". It's an LSG thang, yo. It's kinda subtle in case my swap partner wants to wear in in public or something...

The bottom one is a chevron style in electric blue, teal, plum and dark grey. I'm tempted to make one for myself in these colors.

Also, I enclosed a little sumpthin' sumpthin' in the envelope-- a cute kitty bookmark, in keeping with the theme of "things that will fit in a small padded mailer":

I hope my swap partner likes it-- I had very few clues to go on-- she's only got a few projects listed on Ravelry and no blog GASP!

These bracelets are fun. I've promised one to Miss Margo in her favorite colors of purple and pink. Think I'll leave off the dirty words tho ;P ;P

Not much new to report

except I lost my job (no big deal, right?) I would rant on about it, but I'm pretty much over it. I'm getting 2 more paychecks and actively looking for something else. The best prospect is a part time cataloger, and I hope for my kids' sakes, I get it. I can work while they're at school. Crossing fingers, toes, and all dangling extremities that it works out!

I've finally gotten around to updating my stash also. One of these is a pretty purple sock yarn I got in my Purple Swap, the other is an LSG exclusive from an indie dyer on Rav:

Love 'em muchly. I am SO going to have to get a swift or ballwinder. Or, an office chair and my own hands might work (price is right.)

Also I'm finally knitting/crocheting after a month since my wrist surgery. I'm working on a Waving Lace sock, and starting a dishtowel in P&C Key Lime colorway. I've made a metric buttload of dishrags, I thought I might try something towel sized for a change. Now that I'm UNemplOYED I've got LOADS of time to craft.

Probably the ONLY good thing about being a slacker...Margo is very happy to have me home. She told me today that she doesn't want me to get another job. Mostly 'cuz she hates to be babysat by her aunt (and her boy cousins drive her crazy) but I have to say it's an ego boost to be so loved. I don't deserve such a wonderful daughter ::sniff, sniff::
