Small Gift Bag

Tomorrow...well, later today anyway, is the baby shower i got invited to. I didn't have time to do a complete baby set like I normally would. I made just the no scratch mitts. After I got off work I realized that I forgot to get a gift bag. So I hooked this one up in about an hour or so. Pattern can be found at:
I did the smallest size in Caron Simply Soft in Dk Country Blue.  Turned out pretty good I think.

New Stuff

Well I got a new phone yesterday. And it is a Samsung Galaxy Note. It even has a Blogger app. Its pretty sweet.

Well...didn't succeed. I think I'm gonna have to email the designer. I've worked this pattern over and over again and I just can't seem to get the end result described in the instructions.

Hipster Doily....Again

So I decided to give it one more shot. This pattern is driving me crazy. At this point, I have exactly the number of stitches I'm supposed to have according to the pattern instructions...hopefully it will turn out right because I may not give it another chance after this one.

This pattern makes me so angry! I always end up with 1 too many points after the second layer of the pattern. I can't find my mistake. Its just so frustrating.......Ok, rant over.

Making Progress

I just finished round 9. Only 11 or so more to go.

Craft Auction Project I changed my mind about the item I'm making for the craft auction. I received an email about a pattern I had commented on previously because I had some trouble with it at first. I forgot to unsubscribe to the future comments after I got my issue resolved. Luckily for me I didn't. ;) The email stated that the poster could use the pattern to make a blanket. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks...that would be so much prettier than a giant granny square. The pattern can be found at: The gauge swatch is supposed to be 2" but using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn and a J hook, mine was 6". I estimate if I follow the pattern as written, the finished size will be about 30". I plan to continue for 1 or 2 extra repeats to make it a little larger. Wish me luck though, its down to the wire getting it done. Might be pulling an all-nighter tomorrow to finish it on time.
