i finished the lacy round dishcloth, however i gave it away before i could take a picture of it so here is the color i used … it peaches ‘n cream shades of green it is my last green knitting for the month of may … it turned out really nicely (once i figured out the correct way to do it) …

this picture (right) is the other kitten that we got, the is the girl and she is the crazy one of the pair …

i have changed the template of my blog (as you can see) and i am still trying to work out a few of the issues since the switch … for example, when you post comments i don’t see them yet … and my profile seems to be missing so i hope i will have these things worked out soon …

Have a wonderful MEMORIAL DAY!! And please if you have not already take a moment to remember what this day is about.

Some people are like Slinkies …
Not really good for anything……
But they still bring a smile to your face
when you push them down a
flight of stairs.

laceaphobic: one who is afraid of knitting lace projects.

i have conqured my fear of lace, last night i started knitting the lacy round cloth, and about 6 rows into it i realized what i was doing wrong: for the rows that you have to yo, k2tog, i would do a yo and then in the next 2 sts i would do the k2tog … instead of doing the k2tog and yo all at the same time … i hope i explained it so you can understand … so with this new knowledge i am going to atempt the odessa hat again … i have a nice blue yarn that will be good for blue june for project spectrum.

wednesday …

okay so yesterday i tried to knit one more of the squares for the blanket an it was not comming out nice at all so i have decided to scrap the foot pattern sqaures and just stay with the St st that the pattern asks for… i found that the TLC cotton plus was WAY to slippery for a pattern in it … a good lesson learned i supose …

it is only wednesday and it feels like friday to me … not a good sign for the rest of the week … i created a new button i got tired of the old one so go ahead and steal away …

i guess thats all for now … i will try and have a much more exciting update in a few days!!

i finished the 1st of 20 squares for the baby blanket … i thought i would post it because it is green and it is still green month for project spectrum. i like this square pattern it is really cute … very easy also … row 1 k1,p1 then knit a row and repeat …

the next square is suposed to be a straight St st for 6″ … but i have decided to change it up a bit and i have modified the “feet pattern” to work with this blanket … so i will do 1 of these squares in each color …

… and finally, i have decided that i want to come back in my next life as a cat in a good home … check out my new kitten (he is 9 weeks old)

and finally this is the mid may kal cloth … it is for awarness of woman’s heart health … the suggested color for this cloth was red … but i did not have red so i used hot pink from sugar ‘n cream.

friday fun

You Are a Classic Martini

You area sophisticated drinker, who knows that simple quality is over-rated.

Your ideal party: Has a real bartender. But no one mixes a better drink than you.

Your drinking soulmates: those with a Chocolate Martini personality

Your drinking rivals: those with a Margarita Martini personality

well i did it i finally picked a pattern for the baby blanket i am going to make for my friend … i found it in a baby knit book that mom has. it is made of 20 6″ squares sewn together with a crocheted edge … here is a picture.

and since my friend is being dificult and not going to find out what the sex is of the baby i am going to use white, kiwi, yellow and mint. it is made with TLC cotton plus.

it looks like it is going to be fun to knit up and on the easy side too with will make the knitting go faster …
