New Pic!

Finally got a picture of my goreous daughter in her new winter hat.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010


Well, I'm not exactly following the scarf pattern for the one for my daughter. And I think I like this one better ;).
My version:
Ch 17
R1: dc in 3rd ch from hk and in each ch across (15 dc)
R2: ch 2, turn. Dc in ea dc across.
Repeat R2 until scarf measures desired length.
I plan to use the instructions at the link in the Current Projects post a couple of days ago.
Will have pic up soon.

Hat #2

I got my daughter's hat done tonight but since it's almost 2 in the morning, I couldn't get a pic of her in it. I will get a pic of her in the full set.

Friends??? and Update

I will never understand why some people are all for renting a duplex with friends and then screwing them over. 3 hours ago, my "best friend" just told me that she is moving out in 2 days and having our electricity (which is in her name) transferred to her new address. I didn't even know they were looking into moving. Knowing her, as soon as the electricity is off, she will call CPS on me.

Ok, rant over. Sorry.

I finally got the yarn I needed to make the set for my daughter. I got started on the hat first. I had to add an extra round after round 4 to make it a bit larger. When I made the same hat for my son, it just fit him so I knew it would be too small for her because she is 2 years older than him. So far it's going really well. I will get a good picture of the set for my son and post it soon.

Current Projects

Right now I have several projects in the works.

1. Full-Size and Miniature Sock Monkeys for each of my 2 kids
I haven't actually started this one yet, but I have all the stuff I need. They are worked Amigurumi style. The miniatures I can have done in a couple of days, but the full-size versions could take quite a bit longer. To get a preview of what's to come with these check out the following links:
Full-Size Sock Monkey & Miniature Sock Monkey

2. My Mom's Birthday gift
I can't give too much away about this one (just in case (-; ), but I have started it. I'm not as far along as I want to be at this point but I have until December 20 to get it done. I will definitely post pictures when it's done. If it turns out as good as my sister and I are hoping, it will be pretty awesome.

3. A hat, scaft, and mittens for the kids
It's not too cold here in Texas yet but about the middle of next month it really starts to feel like winter here. I have finished the hat, scarf and one mitten for my son. I haven't been able to start the set for my daughter yet because we've been a little broke and I haven't been able to get all the yarn I want to use. For the set for my son, I'm using Red Heart Super Saver in Mexicana and some blue yarn I had on hand (I think it's Red Heart, too). For the set for my daughter, I'm planning on using Red Heart Super Saver in Bikini and Pretty 'n Pink. The patterns I'm using are listed below.
