tuesday – good or bad???

i have sort of not been knitting much lately, after finishing the baby set, i did a few dish cloths and this hat. it is for caps for a cure i used baby boucle in violet blossom, on size 9 circ … here is the picture. it is really soft and cuddly, i have plenty more to make another one for the next group. i have the same type of yarn as this hat in a yellow also … can’t wait to use it …

i picked this rose out of my garden the other day because it was SO pretty, i will share with everyone:

so what to knit next well, i am going to start another hat, not sure of the pattern yet, i think i am going to try and design one myself – we shall see. a while back i bought some really cute lb magic stripe yarn to make a poncho for dd, never made the poncho because as i started the pattern i did not really like it … so i think i am going to make a cardi for her useing that yarn it is really bright and fun colors. also, i REALLY need to finish some socks for my dad … i guess that is enough to keep me busy … O and i am doing the 2md quarter dishcloth exchange so i will need to think of something for that as well … so may things to knit and so little time …

calvin or hobbes?

A Bit Of Both

You are 50% Calvin and 50% Hobbes

Calvin & Hobbes, like a scruffy yin and yang, are in perfect balance within you. Like Calvin, you’re weird, a bit insecure, and can be a trouble-maker. But like Hobbes, you’re down to earth and sensitive. It’s a risk to say it here, after just a ten question test, but I’ll bet you’re smarter than most. Both Calvin and Hobbes are crafty, clever characters, and any one made from equal parts of each is a force to be reckoned with.
