WHOOOOOOOOOOOAS



Ok so its been a really super long time! Nearly a year. How can this be??? Life I guess just gets in the way of everything. Our computer crashed and we were out for months. Then Georgia started Kindergarten and the rest well is history.

We have learned of a few things, Georgia is autistic. Kind of knew that, but kind of didn't.

Kindergarten takes a lot of my time with volunteering.

but I have been knitting. Still learning. Right now I am doing a few custom orders for a mom at Georgia's school. Its my lovely Candy cane scarf. Its made from the softest yarn. Its Joann's Angel hair yarn. Its lushes.

I have been making some hats as well. I busted out my sewing machine too. We were missing a stocking so Georgia wanted me to make her one. I did. She picked out her fabric, and the style and off to the hum of the machine I went.

I better get back to my Candy cane.. scarf that is. I have to make one more, then a hat and scarf set for a baby.

Purse swap question!

. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? right now I love Cystal palace anything. I love wool, soft yarns everything. If there is anything I dont like, is maybe toooo much for the furry look.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in? um right now they are in a drawer, nothing else, or when they are in project in my project box.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced? I just really learned how to knit in Oct 06. so I am still in the newbie/beginner stage! but I love to learn new things.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? I do I do! its under my hubbys name... Kevin. hahaha I dont know why though.

5. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products, etc.) oooh I love berry. apple, I love peaches and pears for lotions and such. mmmmmmm

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy? ooh you bet I do! haha Peanut M&Ms and Peanut butter cups. hehe see a pattern here??

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin? No spinning for me just yet.. but I do sew, and do paper crafts of all kinds.. I have some of my stuff up. www.luvbugcreations.etsycom

8. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand? I love yellow personally. but for yarns. I love all different pinks, reds, teals, blues.. um yeah pretty much most colors

9. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets? I am married for almost five years, we have a daughter who will be five next month! we have one dog a Chihuahua named Shaggy. she is six years old.

10. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit? I am still learning. I have made scarves, hats, a blanket, wash cloths, and i designed my own purse. it is almost done!

11. What are you knitting right now? right now I have a few things on the needles... my purse, a dog blanket, a bath mat. and a scarf.

12. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Bamboo, aluminum, plastic? I haven't figured it out yet. but right now i have a little of all. hehe

Well lookie here!

Yay! I am almost done with my purse. its coming along just great! I am so excited something for me. and my own design too!

I know it has nothing to do with knitting, but I started selling my cards again on etsy. www.luvbugcreations.etsy.com I guess you could say its knitting related. haha if I make money, it will be part of the knitting fund! actually the first $175 will go to tickets to see John Edward in Sac. in August. that is if tickets dont sell out before I can raise the money to go. My cousin and I really really really want to go. I know some people dont believe...but we really want to go to see if my aunt (her mother in law) comes to see us. so that is where the money will go first. hehe if that is we get tickets! if not.. then YARN it is!

ok well I need to get back to my purse!

all for me!

Well I started a purse for myself. I am not following a pattern just kind of going with the flow and when I am done I am done! I am using the left over yarn from the London Hat, and doing it in seed stitch. I hope to be finished today or tomorrow. Then I am gonna start on my hat!

and I have thought about a project I am gonna start soon. since we are moving the craft room and the living room. my area now is by the sliding glass door. SO, I want something like a swag or something to hang over the door. I was thinking a wide scarf lace pattern. but its gonna take a bit, and be VERY long. here is the door.


so what do you think? am I crazy? I was thinking either a green or wine color.

Done !


and its complete! yay! altho my sweet husband of mine would not model for me. I had to do the modeling myself. so dont mind me ok?!?! NOW, I can make my own spiral ribbed hat in Cyrstal Palace Fjord Ice Storm!

half done London hat.



I swear for a non picky man, he sure made it difficult to find the perfect pattern for his hat. its the london hat i found. gotta love free patterns. altho, that pattern calls for strips , He just wanted your basic all black. so here it is. just a little more before I start the decrease. of course this is me.. haha not him. and dont mind my lovely morning hair. and it should be done today, so I can then start on my stuff! just for MEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
