I love days off!

I can get things done! I finished an exchange square and cleaned the fish tanks and colored my hair and made breakfast for my Daughter and her friends that slept over and were up until the wee hours giggling and being silly!

Ok on with the pictures!
I did this using the Choco-Cherry that I had left from my ripple and a scrap of pink and a lovely dark Brown (Caron 1 pounder) I like the colors in this and my daughter really wants me to do and whole blanket in these colors. I guess that will be added to my long list of projects!
Here's a side view for the 3D effect.
I bought some Kool-Aid to dye some more yarn, so hopefully I will be able to do that tomorrow since the kids are in school and it's my day off again! Yay me!! I have some colorway ideas and then I can use the yarn for my Daughters Babette Blanket since that will be done in natural fibers. Can't wait, I love dying yarn, and posted the process before in here. It's always fun!
I'm making dinner right now so I've run out of time. I will update ripple progress with pictures tomorrow and hopefully my new colorways!

It's sooo easy....

To let the time slip on by without even realizing where it goes! A week has gone by and I have not an entry done during that time! Ok I have been working on my ripple. I did the Choco-Cherry rows and then added a dark brown (Carons pounder). I finished those 2 rows last night and then realized that I had no more variegated that would go next. My Daughter then suggested that I just reverse the whole process and well now that is exactly what I am doing! I have started the Choco-Cherry rows again which brings me up to 63 rows! So I think with the exception of 2 of the colors I will have enough stash left to do just that! Stash busting has been fun with this. I will have to do another stash buster after all Christmas gifts are done! I have Samantha's daisy planned out and will have plenty of time to get that done, Riley's ripple will be close and Brandon's graph-ghan is going to be my biggest challenge!!!

I don't have any yarn pictures because I have switched to working days instead of swings and the kids have all started back to school and i haven't got a routine settled in yet and by the time I get home and start dinner the sun has faded and I haven't taken a photo!

Here's a picture of my Niece her 16th birthday party this past weekend!
And here's my Son Brandon...what can I say, he's the life of any party!
I'll try and get my yarn pictures up!

Ripples and fish

I have pictures today! I am now on Row 60 of Ripple #2 and I am so loving the colors! The last color added is TLC Essentials in Choco Cherry, I love this colorway! I will definitely be using it again for a project! Then right before that is Dazzelaire in the Rose color, no label for that so I am not sure of the exact color name, and then before that is the Strata in Passion. Those are the last 3 colors I have added. I am trying very hard to use up stash yarn but then I find some fabulous color at the store and I have to add it to this ripple! Anyway that's the story behind the last 3 rows, I am trying to locate the information on the other colors used and will update those as well. Since joining ravelry I have a place for better record keeping. Here's another shot of the ripple
It is getting really hard to get in photo of the whole thing!
Here's is another project that I am working on
I redid the fish tank this weekend! It is now home to 22 fish with more to come!
Here's one of the Angels (in the glass) and here's the 6 Cherry Barbs, fish are very hard to photograph!!! That's it for now, I'm off to run some errands and stash dive to find next next colors for the ripple!

I have been working on my ripple but didn't take a picture of the progress yet...oops

I also came up with this idea while working yesterday to make a Daisy in Black, so as soon as I got home that is precisely what I did!
I love it! I have no plans for it, I just wanted to see how it would look! I also got my invite to ravelry in my email this morning! I was quite excited because I had heard people have been waiting for a while and it sure looks like a great community! So now that will be another thing for me to work on!
That's it for now, I have to go into work early today and then 3 days off!

Happy Day

I have got pictures...I have gotten stuff done and photographed!!! Yay me!

I finally got to row 54 on ripple #2! I am very happy to be able to say that because it has been stalled for so long. I got a new color to add to it as well.
I will be using Red Heart Strata in Passion, which has pinks, reds and a bit of black. Can't wait to see how it looks. I think that way I can go to a red after and then incorporate the other colors I haven't used.
Now on to square info, the pink square on the left is Sam's new square. I changed it from the first one I made I used the orange for the middle of the flower and then used green in the background to make the flower stand out better. I like it a lot better, now I just need to get 27 more done!

OK, there's today's update. I hope to get some more work done on the ripple so I can put new pictures up!
