Sweater for my phone.

so my cell phone of 2ish years has died Bye Bye not that I am upset about this because I hated, yes HATED that phone. Nothing but problems since I got it. Tomorrow my new phone will be here!!! Spaz In honor of the new phone I made this “sweater” or “jacket” either way for it. I used a very small amount of SnC cotton, with this mock cable pattern. Now I just have to WAIT for the phone to get here. Have I ever mentioned that I hate to wait.

The offical name is Country Brown Ombre, however to me it look very fall like and that is why I chose it for this KAL. I am making good progress on the girlfriend shrug for dd, it has become my beach project, while dh and the kids are body boarding I sit quietly and work on the shrug. Well off to the beach …

Caps for a Cure

So I don’t know how people feel about causes but … Caps for a Cure is a great group to help a cause … We knit hats for cancer patients under going cemotherapy. Not only are we helping to put a little cheer and/or sunshine in a persons day but the owners of this group are SO generious … because of participation in the summer group they sent us a skein of cotton ease in candy blue. So now I just need to find a pattern for this great yarn. I am thinking I might try a crochet pattern, I have been teaching myself. So we shall see … decisions!! Any pattern idea’s would be welcome …

Here is a picture so you can ge tan idea of the color, also you can see my curious kitty Kuro, she needs to inspect all the things that come into the house.

Sept KAL

here is the WIP of my Sept KAL dishcloth for the group, I think I have figured it out but … we can’t quess so it will have to wait and this picture will have to do for now. O and I was going to do this in tan but when I went to get it out of the closet I found out that I did not have enough to finish the cloth so I went with the next best color brown, and I like the way it is turning out in the brown!!

I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend … I know I did!! And now my beach should be quiet again because it is pretty much the end of touron season …

September …

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

I can’t believe that we are in September already, its time for the all the kids to be back in school, football (NFL and College) starts, the weather starts to turn cooler, and the leaves start to “spoil” … My favorite time of the year. I am making good progress on the Girlfriend shrug, I am just about finished one of the sleeves. I am going to start on the baby lace shrug soon as well, this one looks like it is going to give me a little more trouble, just by looking at the pattern. I just can’t decide on a yarn to use …

and one more thing look how big the kitties are getting –
