I made a sheet! Not pefect but it does fit. I am working on a knitted bag but that is not new. Christmas was lovely. I got a palm centro. It is very cute! I also made some pillows (not stuffed yet) Next I have to get her comforter and make her some curtain toppers I will look up the pattern for that. Wish me luck!

These are my attemps at the neck warmer thingys I posted about yesterday. the one on the right I made last night and the one on the left i was making a baby genius scarf and i became bored. have not touched this in a long time. A light came on last night. The neck warmer is like a short scarf. I had just the thing. The blue one (the one on the left) looks more like the one on crafster. I need to make the beige one longer. I don't have any buttons and it is christmas time so I will not be buying any. I have some eyehooks at home i will be using them.

The author says it is a rectangle. I am thinking of chaining 23 (the first three should be the 1st st) and crochet til my desired length. The stitch looks like dc. The yarn looks like wool ease thick and quick. So I am going to give it a try. AC Moore is having a sale tomorrow with a 50% off coupon so if Wool ease thick and Quick is not on sale I can have it for $3! Oh yeah size N hook.

I made the smallest one. I cannot fit it myself. So I am making the largest size and i think it i will be too big. They knit up fast. I made the first one to see if I could make it. Now I have a belt to fit a waist os 22"-24". Who has a waist that size? it fits the baby.

A strawberry eggnog milkshake! I asked my baby did she want a regular or chocolate eggnog milkshake. Those are the ones I know they made. She said I want a strawberry egnog milkshake I was like I don't think they make those. But they did. It was good too! When it is watermelon milkshake time I will request a strawberry watermelon one!
My yarn is not fancy just simple cotton/acrylic but it is cute. I made my swatch last night. I have a question though. Do I or don't I stretch it to measure it? Half is 1x1 rib and the other half is 2x2 rib. Once i get my measurments I am good to go! The pattern is fairly simple i do have another question about rehanging the side of the center pieces I am not sure what I am suppoed to be doing I am not sure if I rehang the entire side or just the purl stiches or what? That part is going to be totally trial and error. It takes a while to translate a handknit pattern to machine knit but no time to make it on the machine. My plan is to make christmas gifts. Realy not sure how to size it though just make them to fit me and if they don't fit I wll take them back! (Nah)

I worked on this bag for like three days and i did it wrong. I was almost done with the center petal when i realized i was not doing the outer two petals. Now yesterday I was cussing I am better today. I have not picked up a needle or a hook since Sunday (that is when i noticed it) so I figure I am still a little bitter. I was supposed to be another madie this is the chart from the Damask pattern from Berrocco. I will make it just not right now.
