A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a whole bunch of YARN! This is Me! This is my life.....

Gobble-ey Gook

On Saturday Butterfly called and asked if I wanted to come and knit with her and her friend. Had a great time! Thanks girls for inviting me! I just love having friends who love yarn as much as me!

The Yarn Chicks got together on Monday night. I worked on some slippers. Dee worked on our buddy ponchos. Sassy worked on a pillow and a baby hat. Miz Suzie even came, we were all glad to see her. She worked on her ribbon scarf and taught Dee's daughter to knit. It was a fun night!

Hope everyone who reads this has a HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I will be spending most of the day with the "un-laws". I found a fun new easy crochet dishcloth pattern and will be taking the sugar and cream with me to get some finished for Christmas gifts. They are supposed to take an hour to make one. Let's see how many I can get done tomorrow while everyone else sleeps off their meal.

And lastly on a sad note:

Tomorrow , Thanksgiving, is my best friend's birthday. She took her life 4 years ago. I still greatly miss her. I also miss the innocence of my life before this happened. I will never be the same.

Buddy Pochos

It was another Yarn Chick Night! It was supposed to be at my house but I'm having issues with the neighbors so Dee moved it to her house. Thanks Dee!!!

We decided to do another "Buddy Knit" . This time ponchos. Mine is crocheted .

Dee's is knit. We are using the same brand of yarn. Yarn Bee Icelandic Jewels. It's a soft fuzzy yarn with ribbons in it. Pretty!

Dishcloth Divas

Caroline was working on a dishcloth for her M-I-L. I liked the pretty red color. She likes to make up her own dishcloth patterns , which I think is cool!

Laura was intrigued by the whole dishcloth thing so I magically pulled out a ball of Sugar and Cream from the knitting bag and Caroline got her started.

Sassy's Blanket for Her Man

Sassy has been working hard on this blanket for awhile. I am really proud of her because this is her "first" crocheted item.

It looks like she's crocheting a jar of salsa, HAHA .....but......

TADA! She finished her blanket at the yarn chick night! WOOHOO!

9 patch in "the wild"

Couldn't pass up the oportunity to grab a picture of a dishcloth I made in use. It looked good in Dee's kitchen.

Caroline was also so sweet and brought me a knit dishcloth she made me. I ran home and used it that very night! I make them all the time for others, but this was the first I actually used. I will snap a picture of it when I get a chance.

Jiffy Shrug

I made a quick shrug out of Lionbrand Jiffy and some fun fur I had in my stash. It made me look like a lumberjack so I had the chicks try it on. It looked best on Sassy so she's the proud new owner of it.
