Crocheted Colts Colored Cloths...say that 3 times fast!

Instead of having a heart attack or pulling my hair out last night during the game.....I CROCHETED DISHCLOTHS!

I think they turned out cute!

I am so proud of our team and can't wait for the Super Bowl!!!

I will have to get some more blue cotton so I can make some more dishcloths during the Super Bowl.

Anything to bring us luck! Hey it worked last night, didn't it! LOL

Yarn Chicks again.

We got together again before the New Year. It was fun to see everyone, even though I was in severe pain. I woke up that morning with a piched nerve in my back. OUCH!

I worked on a dishcloth for my kitchen.

Little Mist worked on her fun fur scarf. She's doing great! There was no way my first knitting project could have involved fun fur. Too hard to see the stitches. WOW! We are so proud of her!

Suzy gave Sassy another knitting lesson.

Dee worked on a baby cap for charity. Cute!

Knipping and Cripping

I had my very first "knitting in public" and "crocheting in public" experience with the Knitwits. We headed for the local mall and while Butterfly's kids played at the indoor playground, the trio of us crafted away. Fun!

The Brat even came and hung out with "boring old mom" and snapped pictures for us.

Butterfly worked on a knitted hat, Lishy worked on her crocheting skills and showed us how to wind a center-pull ball, and I worked on my crochet rug for my kitchen.

Best and Worst Book of 2006

Well, I usually do a top ten book list but I am embarrassed to say that in 2006........ummmm....I only read 10 books!!!!

Yarn has taken over every waking minute of my life! LOL

The best book read for 2006 was: Yarn Harlot, The Secret Life of a Knitter by Stephanie Pearl McPhee. ( duh!!!!, yarn related)

The worst book read was:The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. What a depressing book! Don't I have anough blah in my real life????!!!!
