Etsy Update

I just updated my etsy store go by and check it out 🙂


Just a little note

To say that I absoulty am sick and tired of SNOW!!!! I just let the dog out to find about 4 inchs of snow on my front steps. It is Spring and it should not be snowing anymore!!! Ok now I am going to go knit! Stay warm!!

Insert witty title here

The last month was very uninteresting and I really haven’t had much to blog about, and really haven’t been interested in blogging but I am hopping that will change. I got my cast off 2 weeks ago and have slowly gotten back into the swing of things. Hubby is very happy about this he didn’t like going to work and then coming home to do my work 🙂

I have been doing a lot of sewing lately just a few project bags I will take pictures when I can get my batteries back from the boys they steal them for the xbox controllers. As for the sewing I have gotten back into it after a very long break the last time I used my sewing machine was for wee mans halloween costume. I will be making him a new costume this one is for his school play he will be playing a nut and needs to look like a nut so he says I told him that he didn’t have to dress up to look like  nut he did not find the humor in this. 🙂 But I did. So after much consulting with my mom we figured out how to make him a great little nut. Should be fun I only have 2 weeks to do it nothing like waiting till the last minute to get things started.

On the knittinf front I got my pals bag done for the HSKS 4 swap I am happy with the way it turned out.

I have made a lot of progress on Baileighs sweater yes its still not done. we now have front back and one sleeve I want to get this done so she can wear it a few times before she out grows it. So pictures of that will be taken as well. I am glad that I made the 9-12 month size! My Hogwarts Sock Swap pal socks are almost done as well, but I can’t take pictures of that just yet. I have started another monkey sock in STR Moonlight Revel I like how they are coming out but those are on hold so are the Jaywalkers for my bf  Trish. I joined ISE 6 and have the yarn and pattern already to go just have to start but I want to get the sweater and second sock done first. I asked my pal what kind of scarf she would make herself if she had the time and she said a modern scarf so tell me what do you think would be a good modern scarf I was thinking a clap, so what do you think?? Now if there were just more hours in the day to get everything done I would be very happy.

I am off to get some more done on the sweater! Happy knitting!!
