Its Sunday … what to do??

Okay well this yarn when I first bought it was going to be a poncho, but I did not really like the pattern so the yarn sat in the closet for a LONG time … recently I decided that I was going to make a cardi (for dd) but after finishing the back piece I realized that I made the armholes too small, i was not using a pattern, I was going by the guide lines in “The Knitters Book of Patterns” … so again I let it sit for a bit … I have now decided to do the the girlfriend shrug for her and this is the progress that I made on it yesterday.

So instead of sewing all the pieces together I crocheted them and this is how it turned out … not bad if I do say so myself!! Now I just have to figure out how to crochet the boarder. And for my next blanket I am going to do this one from Bernat.

First day of school.

I don’t know who was more excited this morning the kids or me … today is the first day of school … while it boggles my mind why the school department has them start on a friday … but they have started … I am happy they both seem to like their teachers this year … that is a good thing.


A few knitting updates: the baby blanket is just about finished, I have 2 squares to crochet on then I have to crochet the boarder, I am hoping to finish it this weekend!

The cardi I have been working on has hit the frog pond … I think instead I am going to do the girlfriend shrug from knit and tonic.

And I am going to do the lacy baby shrug for my friend’s little one.

I’m a cat!!

You scored as The Cat. You are very sweet, but also very sly! People see you as a gentle person, but you can be a bit sassy and sneaky as well. You show affection only to those you wish to, and don’t sell youself cheap. You know how to get what you want, and are a bit of a loner. You aren’t very brave, that is perhaps your one flaw; but people are always coming back to you for a little love.

I feel like a bad person, I think my blog does not love he right now … you can’t get in trouble from any one for this can you???

Anyway I have started to assemble the blanket … this is how it looks so far:

Instead of sewing ALL the seems together I am crocheting them which by the way is taking WAY less time than it would to sew ALL these seems together. I used the same white that I made some of the squares with, because there is also going to be a crocheted edgeing around it. I like this pattern so far, we shall see when it comes to the edge.

This is the lastest dishcloth WIP … this is only to day 5 I have to do the next day later tonight …

And on another note there is only about 20 days until the Patriots first regular season game!!!

Well I took the plunge and I am doing the garterlace cloth, its not hard it just takes a little thought as to how the triangles and squares need to be; it is actually sort of fun to knit and goes pretty quick because you are really only working with 8 stitches at a time … anyway here is a WIP …
