It's a record!!!!

Okay well two days in a row that must me some kind of record for me. Let' s hope it's a habit I don't break.

I took this little lovely out to do some photos today. We went to the local university because there were lots of flowers in bloom and she wanted to wear some dresses. We didn't get the shots I was really wanting because the weather was not cooperating...gale-force winds at times, and rain! Enough with the rain. Anyway, she was delightful, she is getting to be such a big girl....not just a little one anymore. It makes me sad when I look at these pics...she looks so grown up.

And I was really wanting to get a lot done today..I needed to pick out paint for hallway/bookcase room, and my new laundry room. That didn't really happen. I am itching to pick out something new to knit....I just don't know what. I've been staring at my stash and thinking. Looking on Ravelry and checking my queue list, I guess I just feel uninspired. Hopefully something will hit me soon.

Yay, I made something!

Finally, I've had the time to make something!!!! It is so gratifying, satisfying, liberating to make clothing for someone. It makes me feel empowered!!!! I first saw a tutorial for this skirt on a parenting website I frequent. It's been in the back of my mind to do for months and finally I had a long enough break from work to tackle it! It was a very simple strip skirt pattern, I'll definitely be making more. I made two of these, one is for a friends who so graciously donated the fabric, her little girl will look darling in it I'm sure!

Dude....I suck at blogging...and a knitted hat.

Okay, so it's been forever and a day literally. I really want to do this I don't know why it's so hard for me. Throughout the day I always think of things I want to blog about and then I never do...Ugh. I hate that about myself. It would be so good for me to have a place to log my thoughts, if for no other reason than just to vent, ya know? Alright, enough brow-beating of myself.....on to the actual blog subject.

My lovely in a hat I made him! I just made this pattern up myself, using Patons classic wool, which is a merino blend, worsted weight on size 10 needle. Super simple. It took me all of about 2 -2.5 hours. Not to shabby. N has been bugging me for 3 months to knit him a hat, and finally during the last couple of days of February I have obliged him....better late than never right?

Now today I shall be going through my yarn/project stash to pick what I'm knitting next. I've always had some large project waiting in the wings ever since I began knitting 2 years ago, and now I don't have anything big I'm dying to knit. So I'm enjoying lots of little things, which is great because you get the satisfaction of a quick finish. I'll be back soon with what I'm working on. ;)
