Sept. 27, 2006

I wanted to post two pics of a hat and scarf I did with velour yarn, the model is my daughter who decided to have some fun while I took the photo, so I promised her I'd use it anyway.

Ain't she cute!! God, I can't believe she going to be 18 in December, funny thing I never worry about my birthday which is in the same month but I always feel hers..... The second pic is a close up of the hat. I did the scarf on the Purple KK board and the hat on my DA small gauge adult hat loom. The only thing I didn't appreciate about this yarn is that it has no give really tight to knit.

I know I promised the sweater pic but I can't find the zipper you'd think a 24" beige parka zipper would be easy to find after all how many parka's do you actually think we use in Florida. But maybe that's the reason also, no demand.

Sept. 15, 2006

Well, I promised some pics on the baby burp cloth and here it is!! I also made a hat to go with this set. This is not one of my better pics but the good digital camera is lost (whaaaaa!!!) My daughter has it as she doesn't know where she put soon as I find it I'll post better pics.

I join a new group this week the Prayer_ Cloth_Ministry on the yahoo groups. This is a group of Christian ladies that make prayer cloths for people in need and the troops in Iraq. I'm going to start on one this weekend, I have a design in mind of a celtic cross I have to see how this will work out, I need to make sure I can center it, my biggest fear is getting half way through to find I need to frog it.

I finally broke down and bought some KK rounds this week to see if I can work some new stuff on them, I've been hunting the new Long Loom Series down, but can't bring myself to paying what most people on e-bay are asking plus shipping, too much $$$$ for me right now. So I thought I might use the rounds and do some things with those. My purple KK will be free real soon, the sweater is almost completed (yes!!!) then, I can't start something on that soon also, it's kinda funny how most of the crafters I know have several projects going at once. I had made a New Year's resolution that I would only work on one project until I was finished before I'd start a new one, well so much for that nonsense, of course it didn't work neither did loosing 20 lbs. ROFLOL.... I have tons of ideas rolling around in my head, but of course no time in which to work them out I decided I better start writing them down so that I can keep up with it. I also finally made the decision that I won't be able to get the pattern book I've been working on done, there just isn't enough time for everything in my life so this book is out. I'm going to post patterns on the groups and just share them, it was a depressing conclusion, but one that I'm sure the group knitters will love LOL. Well I think I rambled on long enough, bye for now and God Bless you.

Sept 12, 2006

I haven't posted in a while, been really busy and kinda tired. I got contact lenses( for the first time) that are driving me up the wall. The are mono vision, one eye for close up and the other for distance, I actually see better without them, than with them in my eyes. go figure!! My eyes itch and get all dried up. Really annoying, but according to the doctor, I have to use them for a month b4 I go back to the doctor's office. I think I'm just going to break down and get glasses ;o(

I'm finishing my sweater on the purple KK, I started on the coller today with a K2 P1 it look pretty good. I sewed the two sleeves and cuffs and it's really starting to look like something wearable. I'll have to get some pics up.

I also finished the baby burp cloth and am working on the blanket. (need pics of that too)
