This Week with the Pink # 3

 Happy Week #3! Hope everyone had some craftyness in their week!

My FOs for the week were the "One Skein Chevron Scarf" seen above and a crocheted baby hat for Olivia, my friend's grandbaby.

My WIPs  are still the Hedgerows shawl, Rapunzel scarf, and crocheted and knitted baby hats for charity.

This weeks knitting and crocheting took place during Once Upon a Time, The Bachelor, American Idol, Kitchen Nightmares, and multiple episodes of the Knitgirllls podcast.

During laundry with Lishy today she untangled her first homespun off her new spinning wheel and I finished the scarf I am wearing in the picture. =)

Books: I am putting down Bellefleur by Joyce Carol Oates for a bit. My friend that I am doing a buddy read with had to return her copy to the library. My next read will either be Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins or The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks, both hopefully read in time before the movies come out.

Song for the week: Perfect by Pink. It holds special meaning for me and I've heard it a couple times randomly this week and it makes me smile.

Went to see One For the money last night with Lishy. I didn't like the book when I read it years ago but I really liked the movie. I like Katherine Heigl a lot and also  Jason O'Mara.

This week it's supposed to be in the 50's. Crazy for January, but going to try and enjoy it...even though I would really, really, really love to have some snow!!!

Till next time, fondle some yarn!!!! ;)

This Week with the Pink # 2

What a foggy day! But atleast, my friends, the ice melted.

FO's: I had 2 this week! I am making preemie hats for charity. I crocheted 2 using bits of leftover I Love This Cotton. They are so soft and so cute. My goal, keeping with other 2012 goals, is to make 12 hats.

WIPS: While watching "The Knitgirllls" I worked on the Hedgerows shawl. It is big enough for a small dog now.

While watching my t.v. shows I knit on the Rapunzel Scarf and the One Skein Chevron Scarf.

At the laundry mat today with Lishy, I worked on the blue preemie cap.

While watching another podcast "Around The Twist" I started another preemie hat today.

Reading: I finished "The Best of Me" by Nicholas Sparks this week. I was not happy with the ending of this one. Seriously Nicholas??? UGH

I started "Bellefleur" by Joyce Carol Oates. I am doing a buddy read with my BFF Cathy. She gave me a copy of the book for Christmas. I've read it before when it first came out in the 80's. I loved it then in all it's dark and twisted and mixed up glory. This time it is going very very very slow. Wish me luck!

Song: I absolutely adore the song "Faster" by Matt Nathanson. It makes me smile and happy.

Randomness: I am contemplating knitting a pair of socks for myself. I have only knit one pair of socks before and they were for Cathy a couple of years ago. At the time I swore I would never knit another pair in my life but now...hmmm, we shall see.

I am enjoying all the projects I have going but I have startitis!!!! I wanna start so many new things. Somebody stop me!!! ;)

Have a good week my friends, till next time, needle on!

This Week with the Pink # 1

Ok, here goes... What I've been up to this past week:

Crocheted one skein scarf from Stitch n Bitch in I Love This Yarn in Secrets colorway. (1)

 While I watch The Knitgirllls podcast I am knitting on "Hedgerows" a shawl using Cascade Heritage Hand Paint in Briar Rose colorway. The shawl is big enough for a small cat right now. ;)

While watching my t.v. shows (Once Upon a Time, The Bachelor, Vampire Diaries, and Grey's Anatomy) I am knitting "Rapunzel's Curly Q Scarf" with I love This Yarn sport weight in the Seascape multi colorway.

While at the laundry mat with Lishy I am crocheting a one skein scarf in a chevron pattern using I Love This Yarn Overdyed in the Brileybug colorway.

Finished "The Violet's of March" by Sarah Jio (1). I thought it was very good.
Almost finished with "The Best Of Me" by Nicholas Sparks. About 40 pages to go and really hope it doesn't end up sad like most of his books do.Read both on my nook.

Misc. Not much else going on in the Pink world.lol. It was great to have a 3 day weekend though. ;)

I will try to have pictures with my projects in next week's post. My phone/ camera has been acting a bit wonky the last few days and is not doing anything I ask it to do. lol

Until next week friends...

Hello there! Anyone home? =)

I usually do a end of year wrap up and failed miserably with that for 2011. So here goes...

Christmas knitting was a big success this year! I got everything done on time! My projects this year were: a crocheted table runner, 6 scarves knitted or crocheted, one pair of knit fingerless gloves, a felted purse, 4 dishcloths crocheted, and a pair of knit slippers.

Best parts of 2011: Jessie graduating from high school, Florida on Fall Break, finding the author Kate Morton, I love love love her books!!!, finding the Knitgirllls podcast, and my new tattoo!

Resolutions for 2012: Keep being just myself, telling it like it is with no holding back, ridding my life of losers, jerks, and meanies, and still hoping always for a great day.

Goals for 2012: The 12 and 12 project. 12 books read and 12 crochet/knit projects finished.

Also the goal to try and post atleast once a week...we will see how that one pans out. ;)

Until next time...
