Saturday already?

Wait! Where did the rest of the week go? How can it already be Saturday? I had plans on blogging sooner than this.I really did.

Oh well. What matters is that I DO blog. So here I go.

I have been a mad woman with crocheting. The big snowman that I made I gave to my MIL. She has it stilling on the kitchen table. :) I think she likes it.

I crocheted a smaller snowman for my swap partner.(no pictures right now..I don't want to spoil the surprise.)

I made a sale in my Artfire shop. It was a dice bag. So I crocheted 2 more. They will be added to my shop tomorrow. Here is a sneak preview for just my readers.

I am working on more bags right now. I think the D&D/role playing folks are finding them at last. :) YAY

Well time to get back to work on those bags. Have a great day everyone and if you have snow where you live make and eat some snow cream for me!

Flying Fingers

My fingers have been flying this week! I love knitting and crocheting. Esp if it is fast to make items. lol Only problem I have is finding something to knit that I like that is free.

The yarn is Knit One Crochet Too Ty-Dy Socks. I purchased it from Creative Yarns in Macon when I went to visit family a few months ago.I knit these on 2 circs at the same time. I did the ribbing cuff on 1,then done the ribbing cuff on the 2nd one and so forth. It was nice to have 2 done socks at the same time. It does not bother me that they do not match! I love them. I can't wait to wear them. The yarn was a joy to work with.

Amigurumi Snowman

This is for someone.But I can not say who. (no one on Plurk) I hope the person likes it! It is a bit bigger than I was hoping but oh well. ;) I hate piecing these things together but I can't stop making Amigurumi items.

Well I have blood work to get done in the morning so I can't stay up to late.So good bye for now. Please don't forget to leave a message so I know someone out there is reading this.

Lazy Sunday

Today has been a a very slow paced kind of day. I like it.
Tho we did sleep in this morning. That was because we stayed up till 6am. We wasn't sleepy! So I watched Netflix and the hubby played World of Warcraft. ;)

So yesterday I finished the Nephew's hat. I really hope he likes it.
It will look better on him than it does here. lol

Since finishing the hat I can not find anything else that I would like to knit. *sigh* I do have a shawl,hood and socks going.But I want something different to do. But 3 hours of searching on Ravelry gave me nothing. (Free pattern search) So I am working on the socks. I think I am going to frog the hood and use the yarn for something else. I will never wear the thing and I have no one to gift it to.So it will just be a waste of yarn.

I am going to do a KAL with my friend Megan. We will both be knitting Lacewing. I don't think I have enough lace weight but I will see. If not mine will be knit in fingering weight and be a bit bigger.

Which is good for me some all the other shawls I have knit have been to small for me. So it could be a blessing. ;)

Well time to get back to rocking in my chair and sock knitting. I am almost done. Have a great day every one.

FO Thursday!

My friends I come to you with an Finished Object!
Warm Around You (yarn is prettier in person...but its midnight almost so picture taking isn't great right now)

All it needs is to have its bottom blocked then 3 buttons added. I haven't picked out the buttons for it yet. But I have till Yule eve. This is a Yule gift for my MIL. She is always cold and wrapping things around her neck while at home. (we live in a 130+ year old house...its drafty.) I really hope she loves it!

This took all of 8 hours?Maybe! It was a very fast knit to say the least! Worsted yarn on size 9us needles.

Since I got that done so fast I decided to look for a hat to knit for my nephew.In my search I found Big Funky Hat. I am knitting it with Caron Simply Soft.(why yes!I do like this yarn!lol) I think this 17 y/o will like it. Hes a goof ball and likes odd looking things. More on this hat next entry. :)

Well that's it. Please don't forget to leave a comment. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

(please note all rude or foul comments WILL NOT be posted on my blog!)

Thank you for coming back!

Oh noes!

I have been a bad blogger. I have not blogged in over a month! I promise to try and change! Can you help me with that? I need feed back that your out there reading my blog. :) Anything is helpful. Thanks

So in the knitting world...What's on my Needles.

That is Through the Woods by Kalurah. I have completed 5 repeats of the cable section. I am using Caron Simply Soft held double in Autumn Red. So far I like it. But I am worried about having to pick up all those stitches. I am not great at picking up stitches. But maybe after this I will be great at it! lol

Well time for supper. I will try my best to post again tomorrow. :)
