I've realised 2 things today. One...I need a good digital camera. The web cam thing...sucks. Two.....I hate knitting socks! I mean, I LOVE knitted socks but I hate knitting them!! I dont know what it is about them that I hate. I get bored with doing one thing over and over....and when i finally get through the first sock - that's it! I need a break. This is supposed to be a pair of wool socks for my bf.....I just hope he gets the pair before christmas! I'll never live it down. I think i'm going to have to teach myself how to do the 2 socks at once on circs. I already know how to do the knitting on circs...what's it called? Tubular knitting? No...that's not it. Crap, when you use a really long needle instead of 4 dpn....know what i mean? Ok, if i can get that down how much harder could adding another needle be?? Ya right. Its definitly going to take some homework. Anyways, I got a good deal on Briggs n Little wool last week. The store in the little town by me had the hanks on for $3.25!! So my bf picked up 5 for me!! hehehe. I'm thinking of making the French market bag from Knitty. Speaking of market, I'm heading there again tomorrow morning. I think this time I'll pick up a hank of white wool and try this kool aid dying thats' the big craze! I'll post pictures if i can!

When I was at the market last Saturday, I seen these crochet hats for little girls that were soooooo cute. So when I got home, I started surfing around trying to find a pattern for them in knitting...and then crocheting....but could not find anything I liked. SO....I decided to wing it. Took a little bit of ideas from another pattern and this is what I got. Cute huh. Mind you....the baby modeling it TOTALLY makes the hat. Shes beautiful!! And she's all mine :)

Bad Ass Momma

Yesterday was my 29th birthday and I had a great day. I went into Fredericton with my sis in law (to be) and met up with my sister. We checked out the market (love the market) went to the local yarn store (got me some sock yarn!) and then went and got our nose's pierced!! OH YA! I wanted a blue stone for my birthday, but they were all out so I got pink instead. It looks awesome. I find that the pink blends in kinda so the piercing looks very sutle. Last night was spent at home with my kiddo's and company and having cake! mmmmmmm.

Does this even look like a rose??? Well, I've been trying my hand at crocheting again. I used to do it but found that it was boring. However, I dont mind doing these little fridge magnets. They take no time to whip up. My daughter keeps trying to smell it so I guess it looks like some kind of flower :)

Kitty Bed done! I made this using Bernat Lana Wool and just the regular eye lash for the top. I felted it a little to much. But I dont think that the little guy it's going to is going to complain! I made this for my sister's new kitten. I think my guys are a little jealous...but they are next in line to get one. A little bigger for them though!

Look out!! Addi Turbo's are here!!

I am sooooo lucky! My sister (who is the most thoughtful and sweetest out there) went to the lys yesterday to pick me up a needle to make the Kitty Pi Bed. Instead of just getting me the regular needle she came home with the best! My very first Addi Turbo!!!! I was sooooo excited!! I dont think she got my excitedness though. hehee. Anyways, after I came down off my high, I realized that I needed not only the circ but the dbl points in this size as well. Well, now's a good time as any to teach myself how to dbl point knit on circ's i though. There was an article in the "Take back the Knit" zine on it. It was ok, but I found that I still needed a little more info and maybe another picture on the topic to help me. I found a site that did the trick for me, and you know what? It's not hard to do at all!! Here's the site...http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/mloop.html
