Beginning of the year already!

I really should do an end of year round up of pictures, but lord knows where they are all at.  I will add the pictures of Katlyn's Creeper that I got done just in time for Christmas!  I got a scarf done for my Niece too, but  didn't take pictures of that.  When I see her again I will try to get some.  New puppy came home with us on New Years got a few things ready for him.  Went to JoAnn's and get some fleece remanents and made him a bed and a bed for Max because I don't want him to feel left out.  I saw a link for it on and will have to hunt it out again to post up the link.  Super easy and quick and both dogs loves them!

After thinking about it I did get loads of things done this past year.  Finished up my big ripple, hats done up like crazy, Lucy bag, a Creeper, star garland, fingerless gloves....hmmm, not as bad as I had thought!
Blanket started for Brooke

Ok I really must find all my pictures, I think they are on this computer here at work and on my laptop!  Let me run off and see, maybe I can get a year end mosaic together to make it simpler!

A couple of things...I have been getting Christmas stuff done!  Yay!  I got this cute garland done for a swap I am in on Ravelry.  the one on the left is made with some cream colored cotton yarn I have had for many moons, I believe the Bernat makes it and the green one is made for cotton yarn that I recycled from a sweater I bought at the Goodwill back in 2007.  The things I have laying around my stash!  I actually have used this green yarn twice this season, it's also a couple of balls on my Christmas wreath :) I haven't taken any pictures of the garland done yet, but grabbed couple extra stars on my way out the door this morning so I had something to post.  The green has different color variations in it, though I chose all the same colors grouping for the garland, the lighter green.  
This hat is for my Nephew who is very muchly loving rasta colors and slouchy hats, so I whipped him up a quick Christmas gift!
Next up will be a Bender hat that I am trying to design for my Son and trying to get my Niece's blanket done as well!  Oh yes and a hat for one of the girls at my night job and a Creeper for my daughter's stocking...crap!!  Hmmm, there's 12 days left until Christmas, losing tonight though because I work all day and night!  Sigh...........I will just hook on and hope for the best!

Better get some work done so I still have a day job!

Holidays are here....yikes

I have big plans, really I do!  I just have to get them done :)  I did manage one thing so far, pretty good for the 4th day of the month (posting this on the 5th but I did it last night)
While it is a terrible picture, it is up and hanging on the front door for all to see and by all I mean my neighbors across from me because no one else comes up our stairs except for us & them!  It's all good though because I love it and my Daughter though she did rolls her eyes this morning upon seeing it for the first time (she was away house sitting this weekend) like it.  I LOVE the Christmas season, I love the lights, the sparkle, the cold weather (my skin hates that part), the decorating!  I do miss Christmas mornings when my kids were younger and the tree was filled with presents for them to tear into.  Now that they are grown they don't want the legos and cars and barbies....sigh I am old!  I will just go along and enjoy the hell out of the season!!

Ok the wreath was so easy to do, picking the colors was the hardest part of the whole project.  Once the color scheme was decided I went to my stash and grabbed a few greens that worked together and and pretty deep red and threw in the cream and tan to give it some rusticness.  No gluing so all yarn is still usable and I can see this being a year round door decor, changing out different colors for the seasons.  Idea came from here
I am doing a rasta colored hat for my Nephew, trying to design a Bender hat for Steven and have my Niece's blanket to finish up all in the next 2 1/2 weeks....oh yes I have a swap partner on Ravelry that I have not shopped for, but at least got the homemade thing out of the way!  I am really not very good at these swaps and don't think I will be doing many more.  I know what I like, but I ALWAYS worry about what other people like and question everything I pick out.  Ok enough of this!  I really need to get some work done, being as it's Monday and I have not done much yet!  Ugh, it's Monday and I have my 2nd job tonight!!!  Great, now I am bummed again!

The blanket is done, all the way, ends woven...done 100% YAY!

Chibi wouldn't move so I could spread it out properly, I worked around her.  Used up lots of stash for this and that made me happy.  Only bought the first 2 skeins way back in 2007 when I started it.  Used some skeins completely and had to improvise some of the rows, but all in all I love it.  Really don't know what I am going to do with it...keep it or give it away.

The End!!

Yes, I finished the giant ripple last night!  It's folded up and waiting patiently for the end fairies to come along and get rid of all the dangling bits!   
Oh the ends!!

It looks so much smaller all folded up and of course these pictures are terrible, but believe me it big and the colors rock!

Ok can I say right now that I am not loving the blogger changes!  I cannot get anything to line up and stay where I put it, so if these pictures are scattered, it was not my intention for them to be like that!!!

Now since I am sure the end weaving fairies will not be paying my house a visit, you will find me curled up on the couch watching The Big Bang Theory and weaving and cutting tonight!  I do have to squeeze some sit-ups in there too, I have developed a bit of a pooch and not liking that at all, I am quite comfortable with my bootiliciousness and can deal with having calves that do not work with regular boots, but I'll be damned if I will have a belly!!

Anyway, just wanted a quick share with y'all on the finished (well finished crocheting anyway) blanket and will have WAAAAYYYY better pictures when all ends are woven!

Why yes, I am a terrible blogger

Goodness, I really can't believe I even have this blog anymore, I am never here even though I have made a permanent tab for it to remind me!  I take pictures, save them on my computer for use here, but then I get distracted on Ravelry or Pinterest and that's me gone!  Ok enough rambling.  I have a bunch of new stuff done. Well maybe not a bunch, but I have been getting things done!
First up, no pictures for it yet though is my giant scrap ripple!  I am on the last 2 rows and those should be completed tonight while sitting and watching Top Model with Katlyn, yay!!!  Of course I have a million ends to weave in, but I am sooooo happy to have it near the end!  I have other projects to get done and I really wanted to get this done before moving along the project list.  I do manage to get small things done in between, because it is Queen sized and not an easily managed project for transport.  Wait I do have a picture, not a full one, but just a reminder shot of what it looks like...
Just a tease!

Ok next up, I made some fun wrist warmers, they a Ogre Wrist Warmer, pattern from Lion brand using Vanna's Choice yarn, which I do love even though it's "just acrylic"  Fairly easy pattern, though I had to make adjustments because there is no way on a chain 20 base that they would fit a normal person, just way too tight and with no stretch, not going to work.

they work good :)

I think that's it for the moment, I can't seem to figure out how to get this blog set-up to work and have the pictures arrange right...see what happens when I go away too long!
So after all this time it's just a short post, but I have lots of hats in the works for my Cousin and finishing a blanket for my Niece and blankets for my Son, Steven & my Granddaughter.  Plus Christmas gifts for all the kids in the family!  Busy, busy, let's hope I have time to blog again ;)

Hats & things

Ok I have some updates on the whole hat thing. I really love the pattern I used, it really is so easy, I mean insanely simple, I did 3 hats in about a week!
So now on with the pictures, though I have someone popping up talking to me on Facebook and I hate that flashing thing so I have to make it go away!
here is the Simply Soft one, dark sage I think the color is, I've had it for a long time and I was originally going to be making her a Legend of Zelda type of hat so this color suited that and I just picked it up when I made this hat.
ok here is the one that is in the basket of my last post, 21 different colors of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, this one came out great, she loves it and wears it a lot in fact! Still really easy, just lots of changing colors and of course the dreaded weaving in of the ends!
#3 well this one she loved the yarn when we went to Jo-Ann's and so I bought it and whipped up a hat. This yarn is Bernat, Mosaic in Optimistic, really super soft and works up lovely. I love how the colors just change up. I think I will go check out what other colors they have, Girly is gone for a few days dog watching at my sisters so maybe I can whip up another hat for her!
I have loads of cotton to work up into dishcloths and potholders, and I need to finish my Niece's blanket for her birthday and finish up a baby blanket for Andrew's baby and well I do have lots of fabulous yarns to turn into scarves...sigh so little time. I really should just glue a hook to my hand! Of course right now it's mid August in Southern California and surface of the sun hot outside and well crocheting just comes up a bit short!

I did dye 2 skeins of yarn last weekend and I am going to get some more Kool-Aid tonight to do some more this weekend, I am using a crock-pot this time and wow, it is super easy and super fast! I did take pictures and will have to pull the files off of my phone to upload here, but really so much fun! I forgot how much fun it is to do and the colors are great too, now I just have to figure out what to do with the yarn!

Ok back to work, need to gather some files for the boss and clean off my desk!

At last~

Just an FYI, if you hit enter after typing your title it posts to you blog! ugh!

Anyway back to the post I was about to type!
I made a hat =) I have yet to take pictures of the hat because my Daughter whipped it away as soon as it was finished! She wanted a slouchy hat, I found a very simple pattern here and whipped it up in a weekend using Simply Soft yarn in a dark green. Now she wants one using a bunch of colors like my Lucy bag that I never posted here, so I can't show you the picture of it, but I do have a picture of the WIP
oh how I love a basket full of yarn! It's all Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. I like to go to the website and pick out random colors and then get a package of yarn in the mail! Simple joys really!
Should be done with it this evening or tomorrow sometime and will post a picture of the finished product along with the green one. I might get creative and do a pokeball too!
So that is what I am working on at the moment, plus the potholders, plus blankets. The blankets don't get much work done to them when it's 100 degrees outside though! I do want to dye some yarn with Kool-Aid though, so I might be doing that as well, haven't done that in ages! I do plan on taking out my real camera and taking better quality photos though because these iPhone shots are really not doing my yarn any justice at all and you really should get to enjoy the pretty colors as best as you can!

Ok that's it for today, I should get some work done around here being as I am at work!!
Happy Friday!

Really bad pictures, but a cute scarf!

Remember that yarn I got from Toni...the NuMei 2 posts ago? Well I worked it up and TA-DA. The scarf is done. Hey what else does one do when watching the first 7 Harry Potter movies in a row?
Terrible pictures taken this morning at work after attaching the flowers and fringe...yes 2 flowers are there I love how they blend in. Anyway the scarf is off in the mail so I am hoping she will like it. She doesn't even know I have it done so she will be surprised!

Nothing terribly new other that the scarf, I am planning out Christmas gifts...maybe if I can work out the idea I saw. I am going to attempt it tonight so crossing fingers that I can get it to work because I know people always like handmade gifts! Oh wait is that just me? Now if I just had a magic wand to get things done =)

whole lotta nothing

Yep I have gotten nothing done lately, nothing at all in the way of crochet, I want to, I think about it....but I never seem to get a hook in my hand! I went to JoAnn's on Saturday looking for styrofoam balls for a new project that I ran across HERE did you know that small styrofoam balls are not all that cheap!! I had to pay $4.49 for 12 balls about 1 or 1 1/2 inches diameter that's roughly .37 cents each, for something I was going to cover up with yarn. Sigh...I am too cheap for my own good at times. It really irks me the most because I ended up not even using them for this project because they were too big. My Daughter says "Mom, why don't you just wrap the yarn up from the beginning?" Good question, why don't I do that and guess what it worked just fine! So a wasteful trip to JoAnn's you might think BUT while there I did happen to stroll through the yarn section and found this
.97 cents per skien. Only 79 yards each, but it's wool and I loved the colors. Bought 2 of each color, they didn't have very much left in stock.
I yellow and the bluish/yellow one are the same colors but I used the one bluish/yellow one to make the above mentioned project. Ready???
sorry the pictures are so bad, indoors with an iPhone just not the best quality. Anyway, how cute are these yarn ball flowers! I am just madly in love with B. Cheniful! What a fun blog over there, click the link above and go check her stuff out! I made these with the new Baby Wool I got and I have this sitting on my dining room table where I tend to sit most of the time with my laptop open and they make me smile. My daughter thinks I'm silly =)
So that's what I've gotten done lately besides putting together my new bistro set for my balcony! It was a birthday present!
Ok I shall be gone now and cross those fingers I manage to pick up a hook tonight after getting off work and then going to the grocery store and then going to the reptile store and then cleaning up after a gillion animals....hook?? haha, we shall see!!

some pictures

I managed to hunt down my pictures of my most recent yarns. First up yarn given to me by Toni, she bought it when she went to a graduation in Bakersfield and I am going to make her a scarf with it.
2 of these and if it wasn't a millions degrees right now I could play with it! I just might later tonight anyway. I will probably just make her an Airy Scarf like the Malabrigo one I just whipped up, she really liked it and it works nicely for the summer mornings being as she lives in Santa Rosa and it tends to be cooler there then here.
I bought these at Cast Away on Sunday before leaving town and drug my Son Steven and Toni (his girlfriend) with me
Oh the Malabrigo goodness here! I have the Lime-Blue roll up into a center pull ball now and should get to work on that scarf. So many choices now and soooo many WIP's to complete!

Ok photo update done, the last 2 shots are iPhone bad shots, but trust me the yarn is yummy! I am leaving work early today and I should get something done before that, so I will finish this post for today!

dishcloths and stuffs

Oh I really have nothing exciting to check in with...really I haven't gotten much crocheting done lately, I did manage to finish a small dishcloth. 20 chains to start and 20 rows and finished up with a sc all the way around. I decided I am tired of sponges and the nasty smell they seem to acquire so fast! No matter what I sponges, old sponges run through the washer and dryer...nothing helps so I am trying dishcloths that I make myself. I am feeling very green in doing so too! I like the way it works, just takes getting used to. My Sister asked for one as well and I am going to do some facecloths as well. I am trying to get Katlyn to make some. She worries that they are going to be crooked since every time she tries to crochet, the item ends up a bit wonky and she gives up. I told her she needs to COUNT her stitches, but she has no need for that! ^.^ I told her that they will be used for washing dishes and wiping counters and I don't care if they are wonky. I think she just might do it this time and maybe the simpleness of it and a fast finished product will motivate her learn more and make her own things! We will see!

I am working on getting the potholders completed by the end of the month so I can ship them off to Tony which works well for me, since it's his birthday as well!

Ok I thought I had yarn pictures on my work computer, but I don't so no pictures right now. That just make for a boring as hell post....sorry! I will get some pictures and post, but I am at work right now and should be doing something!!

Had a weekend out of town...

I have new yarn and new photos, but unfortunately have to work 13 hours today and have no time to post much of anything.
I will say that I was in Santa Rosa for my Granddaughter's 3rd birthday and I went to Cast Away and got some more Malabrigo hanks! So I will be back soon with the pics!

Scarf finished

Finished my sweet Malabrigo yarn scarf. I like it, it is a bit shorter then I usually wear, but it works fine. I decided to add a couple of flowers to it while working on it and the fringe and since I wasn't sure how much yarn I would have leftover for the flowers and fringe I finished up the scarf and then made the flowers and fringe. Next time I will whip out the flowers and cut the fringe first and then just crochet until the yarn is gone. I don't have too much left of the yarn, but I definitely could have added a few more rows. Hindsight... it is all done.
I like the flowers done in the same yarn, they are there just subtle and gives it a bit of character.
I am going to work on getting my other Malabrigo yarn wound into a ball instead of the hank and start a Queen's Anne Lace scarf found here. Looks like a fun scarf and something different for me.
I also need to work up a swatch for someone who wants to buy a ripple blanket for me. So that's what's next on my list, besides all of the other WIP's I have going as well.
I bought the 3rd season of True Blood on DVD and have 1 disc left to watch, so I can swatch while watching that. Need to mail off the swatch tomorrow so she can approve the colors and the pattern and I can get started on it.
Now I am off to complete my to do list for the day so I can actually watch my DVD. I have a mightly to do list...
Laundry......nearly done at this time.
Plants re potted.....done
Balcony....mostly done, swept clean of leaves and deck scrubbed, unfortunately the people next door let their dogs piss on their balcony and the smell is horrific out there right now. Sending a letter to the board, oh hell I'm VP of the board!
Trash out....done
carpets (cat puke)...little steam cleaner comes in very handy
pictures hung....still have to add details to the green one, but will measure and hang the others
boxes packed....this just pisses me off. people wants all this stuff but I have to pack it up and move it for them. I won't even go into the boxes stacked in my dining room waiting for them to get moved, oh wait that will be my job to get to deliver them. vented there, sorry

Off now~

New yarn

Oh dear, I found a fabulous yarn store while visiting Santa Rosa for Brandon's graduation! Just such a great little shop, I loved how it was set up and the ladies were friendly and the yarn, oh the yarn! Just yummy! I bought 3 hanks, when I was only going to buy 2 but I'm telling you it's hard to resist when presented with such gorgeous colors and glorious softness!! So here they are for you to gaze at and really just so soft and beautiful...did I say that already?
Malabrigo, Silky Merino in Atardecer. The colors in this are just stunning! 51% Silk 49% Merino Wool...just 150 yards of goodness I say!
Malabrigo, Worsted in Mariposa,
the first yarn I laid my eyes on and it was instant love! I am working on a scarf in this right now!

Malabrigo, Worsted in Lime Blue.

Do you see a trend happening? Yes I do have a new found love for Malabrigo yarns! It's not even crazy expensive and I can't wait to go back to Santa Rosa and visit my sweet yarn store there again. Really you should visit if you're in the area, Cast Away in Santa Rosa, California on 4th street! I will be taking some pictures of the store front next time, it was raining on Saturday when I went so didn't want to stand outside in th rain taking pictures!

Here's the scarf....a simple stitch and very light and airy. Ok the picture is mostly about the yarn, but you can see a bit of the scarf. I am thinking of adding some flowers to it as well, haven't worked out the details just yet, was very excited to get started on something with my new yarny goodness!

Ok, off to work on my scarf now!

UGH!! Well at least it's my Friday!

My week has been insane, I am going to Santa Rosa tomorrow for Brandon's graduation!! YAY! I am so happy and will have loads of pictures from said event! Anyway in all of this business that means my crocheting gets pushed aside a bit, though not entirely because I am working on potholders and I carry that in my purse and get a few stitches in on a break at work.
These are coming along slowly, but at least it is a very portable project! I do love the bright color of the cotton for these, though I was told that they were too girly. I did reply that they could easily be pink so don't criticize the girl with the hook...he changed his mind and thinks the color is fab now =)
So anyway I will have these on hand to work on in Santa Rosa and will be taking Brooke's new blanket yarn and working on those squares, though I don't think I have posted a picture of those here...let me check.
Nope not posted yet,
just small squares in purple, lilac, green and yellow all bordered in white. Just random colors put together, I will have to get some pictures of it spread out when I get home. Brooke likes it so far, she saw it last trip up when I had a couple of squares done, she was very excited that it was going to be for her. I have Steven's new square done for a 20 square blanket since I never did complete the one I started for him in Lime green and Purple, I have a bunch of squares done and I will do something with it eventually I'm sure! Brooke might love it =)
Anyway I better get some work done here so I can go home with a clear conscience while I'm away. I still have to pack and go to the store and get a few things for the animals before we leave at o'dark hundred!!

Headache Saturday

Blah, blah day, I haven't felt 100% all day, worked a bit on my ripple and will do some more after dinner if this blasted headache would just go away. Took the dog for a walk to get some air, didn't help. Well he was happy though. Really need to curl up on the couch and crochet, that usually helps. Going to make dinner and see if that helps! I will post a picture after that!

Just a tired Tuesday

I work 2 jobs, now only 1 of those jobs full time and the other is 1 night a week...Monday night to be exact, but it's still a long day for me and when I get up on Tuesday morning my poor feet give me a hollar about having to be stood on for 5 hours straight the night before! Anyway that means no crocheting done or at least any measurable amount, I did get a tiny bit done on the ripple yesterday (Monday) morning while waiting for Katlyn to get ready for school and got a row done on a potholder today, so a teensy bit going on. I do have the ripple in my lap as I type, but have only done about 10 stitches on it tonight. Tonight I have a board meeting and before that I had to feed Katlyn and myself but since I was crazy starving from lack of food intake yesterday and not much today I ran to Jack in the Box and we ate fast food! Oh yes and Sheldon got a new jumbo sized tank so we set that up as well before the meeting. Crazy 2 nights so far, I'm pretty tried and really think I shall crawl into bed after pushing the publish button on this!

Oh yes, most important news, Katlyn passed her California High School Exit Exam!! Her first time taking it too and so now that is done and out of the way!! WooHoo!!

That's all folks, short and sassy!

Eeeeek, I have pictures

Well only one picture, but that counts...right?

I have made it to row 101 on this ginormous ripple. It's not that big really, it does fit nicely on a queen sized bed though. Only 21 more rows to go and then the weaving in of the ends, the most fun of any thing I make! I will be happy when this is done because I have so many other projects in the works and have had 2 people (not family) ask me about price to make one! I have a list!!

I went to my storage unit that I have had since moving up to Northern California in 2007, sadly I have not really had a place to keep everything. When I moved back down to So-Cal I stayed with my Sister for a few months and had no place to keep my things.
Then when I moved I moved into a friends house that was fully furnished, so I had yet again no place to put my stuff. Gradually I did retrieve a few things but when he decided that the house needed to be sold, my stuff was again packed up and banished to storage. (not my yarn, that goes where I go...all 8 giant plastic bins of it!) So in October I inherited a permanent address! Finally a place for my stuff, but alas it has not been so yet, I moved into a 987 sq foot condo that was completely furnished, head to toe. I have spent the last few months going through everything, donating things and packing up the things that my Sister is taking to her new place whenever she moves! So in the mean time I have full cupboards, and boxes filled in the dining room and cabinets stuffed with things that are not going to be staying here. I have plans for my stuff, for painting the walls and renovating quite a bit, but for now I am resigned to simply going over to storage every once in a while and grabbing a couple of boxes and then bringing them home! Oh joys of seeing you stuff that you haven't seen....I forgot all about having a Lava Lamp =) It is now on and doing it's thing and gives me a smile! I am downsizing as I go too,
and I do donate quite a bit to the local Goodwill store, but it's great to unpack all of my family pictures and get this place to look like home!!

ummmm, yeah this was supposed to be a crocheting post, but it turned into another rambling of my vomit was mentioned so I think I'm doing good!!

Nothing at all to do with crochet...well maybe somewhere in the rambles

I have been crocheting and will break out my camera soon, though I have posted some pictures on Facebook using my iPhone. Anyway I have things in my head running around and they seem to need an escape. I shall type them out of my head and then get back to regularly scheduled programming.

I am very grateful for all I have in my life, let me say that right off, that doesn't mean I will not complain about things though. I have a car and am grateful that I do, but other drivers can drive me crazy! Really please I am not a speed demon, I do not need to speed from one light to the next, but please for the love of everything, drive the speed limit!! Nothing will send me over the crazy edge faster then a person driving on a clear road 10 miles under the speed limit. I don't care that we will meet up at the next red light, I just want to drive the speed limit. Can you tell I drive surface streets a lot! Complete venting needed over this and again I'm not complaining because I am grateful that I have a vehicle to drive.

Ok driving down, next...

Saturday morning....ahhh the weekend I can sleep in, wait what's that noise I hear.......oh yes it's Max and he wants to go outside, sigh. Throw back the blankets, shuffle to the bathroom, get my jacket on, open Katlyn's bedroom door to let both Max and Prue out and of course turn off her TV and Wii. Proceed down the hall to see the Moo wants food (she is a piggy bunny) and then seeing that one of the other cats has left me a nice pile of vomit, ugh...step over that for the moment because little dog is bouncing around to go pee, get a plastic bag from the kitchen, step over the vomit again grab the leash and my keys, slide on my outside slippers (I have inside ones too) and leash up little dog...away we go all before 7 am on a Saturday! Ok he does his business and we trudge back upstairs, vomit staring me in the face basically telling me no more sleep for me. I brush my teeth (I do nothing besides walk the dog with my teeth unbrushed!) make my bed...ditto for the bed making and head out to the living room to clean up vomit, oh wait bunny needs food...fill her bowl and give her hay, turn on Sheldon's basking light (didn't mention the lizard yet did I?) grab some paper towels and on the way out of the kitchen notice 2 more spots of vomit...sigh! Clean up aisle 3, 4 AND 5!!
Done with the clean up, fill the kettle with water, measure the coffee into the press, turn on the water to clean Sheldon's dishes, do a couple of dishes, turn off water and realize I don't hear kettle making noise...yep forgot to turn it on, flip the switch, get Sheldon's greens out of the frig, gather what's left of crickets, stop and write a not to self to buy more crickets today, feed Sheldon crickets, chop his veggies, feed him veggies, water's now done, pour into coffee press and flip on computer while waiting........whew!! Make a list for my day ahead even though Katlyn has shopping plans which will include me driving her, but that's ok I need to get crickets =)
Wow, doesn't my life sound fabulous in type!! I actually love it, not the vomit part of course because well that's nasty and stains the carpet! I mean seriously, steam cleaning doesn't get the stain of cat vomit out! (wondering how many times I have said vomit in this entry) I do indeed love my life, it works rather nicely for me and I have learned that there is no use whatsoever in worrying about the things you have no control over. I still worry of course, I am human and have a tiny bit of a heart. I live in a zoo by the way if you haven't figured that out yet. 1 dog, 3 cats, 1 bunny, 1 hamster & 1 bearded dragon.

Ok I will stop typing now and pick up my hook as I can see it sitting there sticking out of the blanket I am working on waiting for me this one, remember it???

I am doing a bit of revamping in my life and getting my self more organized. I am hoping this will get back on track as well since I am doing quite a few new projects right now and posting them at Ravelry and on Facebook.

So please watch this space!!
