Matching nail polish to boot!

I've been trying to find a hanging towel pattern that I like for the longest time. This one was alright, but I had to make a few changes to the pattern. Actually, only one change. The neck was not nearly long enough for my liking so i changed that. Other than that I think it turned out ok. These are the hardest things to find patterns for believe it or not!! Everybody has towel toppers instead. I love these hanging on my stove though. Now I'm going to make up some matching dishcloths and I should be set. I was at Giant tiger on Friday night and picked up some wool. For those of you in Fredericton and area that happen to read my blog, Giant tiger is getting some eye lash yarn and some more wool blend yarn in this week. Aparently the prices are pretty good too. About $1 cheaper then the usual prices at walmart and zellers. SO.......head on over to Oromocto and shop away...just dont buy them all! Save some for little ol me. I'm going to make my kitties a felted bed. Thankfully "Aunt Lizzys" on Restigouch Road sells needles. Not the best on the market (hers are the plastic kind - yuck) but for somebody who NEVER gets to the city it'll just have to do. I seriously need to figure out how to post more than one picture at a time. Its very annoying having to do multiple posts just to show more pictures. Anybody know what i'm doing wrong?

HEY! I FIGURED IT OUT!! Gosh i'm smart! :) So then, heres a picture of my little beauty!!

Birthday Wishes i've got a birthday coming up. I know it's a month away (Sept 10), but my wheels have been turning. I've got wishes!! I think I've been a good girl this year....actually I know I have been!! And maybe it's silly of me to post about what I want, but I dont care! So. If any of my family reads my blog (you better!!) and are at a loss of what to get me here is a list of some books that that I would love in the order of how much I would love them!!

1. Weekend Knitting - Melanie McConnell and Melanie Falick
2. Knitting Pretty - Kris Percival
3. You Grow Girl - Gayla Trail
4. At Knits End - Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

That's it. Not to bad huh!! OR, you could just get me a gift certificate to Chapters and I'll go spend away!! And of course, you can always get me yarn......feed my addiction!! :)

Ok..i'm off to knit!

There's not much to report on the knitting front, so I thought that I would share a picture of my kitties. The big guy is Frankie (biggest sweety) and the little guy is Rusty. He's the coolest little kitten. Anyways, I've been working on a hat for somebody.....and that's about it!! Sad huh!! Lots of plans, but nothing actually started. I was at the store "Giant Tiger" last night and I almost lost my marbles!! They have Lion Brand yarn there for only $2.96/ball!!! Oh ya, after my yard sale on Saturday I'll be taking a little trip back to that store. Good yarn too...50%merino and 50%lana wool. I think I dreamed of the projects I could make last night! Oh my....i need to get out more I think!!
