Just in case the first little surprise doesn't work out, I'm working on another. I'm using a smaller hook though. It'll make the stitches smaller, so nothing will fall out.

Making headway...

...on my lil surprise for Val. Just working on it while i'm waiting for dinner to show up. I broke down and ordered Chinese for dinner... after I spent all that money at the grocery store.


My lil thingy is just about done... I just have to figure out a way to reinforce the bottom, find a piece of ribbon or hearty string, and add just a few more rows. I don't want it to be too big, because the yarn won't be able to take the weight of too much, but too small and it's pointles.

Need to get it juuuuust right ;-D

I like working without a pattern. ^_^

Just a little something...

I'm crocheting a little something. It's very little lol... something I should easily have done before Saturday.

If all goes well, I'll have a little surprise for Ms. Val. If not, then it's a little practice something... *grins*

Still alive!

School has started up and we're almost halfway through the semester all ready.

I've learned how to knit... I know how to cast on, knit, purl, slip, and bind off. I just need to learn how to put it together. ^_^

I recently picked the waterfall blanket back up. Really recently... like yesterday. I managed to get another four to six inches done.

I doubt I'll have a lot of time to work on knittng or crocheting until after the semester is over. When I get a few more skeins on the blanket I'll update the picture.

I've got a few more minutes before bed, so I'm going to work on the blanket just a few more minutes.

Updated pictures...

The progress bars are semi-updated. I removed the scarf and added Moontear's scarf under Finished Creations. But photobucket is being annoying and won't load :P

I'll add the pictures later. ^_^


I think.... I'm going to switch from crocheting to knitting.

I know, I know... make up my mind. But I was at my mom's yesterday looking at a blanket my sister had knitted. And I really really really like the say it came out. While crocheting is relatively easy for me, I think I like the appearance of knitting better.


Sometime in the next week, I'm going to stop at one of the craft stores in the area and pick up a beginners knitting book. I'll practice by making washcloths. And I'll get some more yarn too. (YAY for YARN!).

I've done a thorough reorg of my house, so I have plenty of space for yarn. ^_^

I will still complete my mom's blanket though. I haven't worked too much on it because it's so hot.


Maybe I can master both crocheting & knitting? Maybe? Hell, I just want to master one! And maybe take up cross-stitching again. I was actually *really* good at it when I was a teen. The most I really did crocheting wise when I was a teen was bookmarks.

I'll post again soon with my final decision.

I finished a project!!!!! It's not the one I started first, but I FINISHED MOONTEAR'S SCARF!

I never even had a chance to update the link to the right.

Moontear is going to send me a link so I can put up a finished picture!!!!

Now, to finish that blanket. ;-)
