Not quite right

I thought that I could just continue in the round although the pattern clearly said not to and so my apple cozy did not turn out quite right!

Apple cozy

I know I am blogging everytime I think it is because I can. I got cocky and messed up on the pink apple cozy. Saw this red yarn and restarted with it. Made it to row 16 without a mess up. Pattern says start knitting back and forth so we will see

Too Cute

This dress is too cute! It has pockets too but it really is a simple tube with ribbing on top and bottom and two straps. How cute would my baby be? Now mine would not be that jazzy and probably made with redheart yarn.

It is on

now I can make my scrapbook book pages and print them 8x8 go me ! each child has their own photo album leon was like why do you need three scrapbooks? "because I want three"

Silly apple cozy

so far so good I don't have any dpns and so it is magic loop. Food for thought: magic loop is the best thing going why doesn't everyone feel that way?

Wedding Bouquet idea

Crafting trials

My family was gone to visit grandma so I crafted made this ice cream in about 1-2 hours. Not bad

For her wedding, Monica gave all her attendats and hostess a bag with that had flip flops and some other things in it. I want to do the same. I want to make the bag though. so i thought i could so a straw bag since it is summer time. so i bought the above pictured seagrass for $2.50 not bad. only to get the hot mess you see on the needles aslo pictured aboved. I tried it all together barely made a stitch so I untwisted to the plys and what is on the needles is what i got. so I need a new plan. I was telling Raena i need another plan she is going to try with suede yarn. I may try with straw colored crochet nylon. Nita Says just buy the bags! I may do that. Nita also said she may have some smaller sea grass at her house . she used to make baskets. if nothingelse that sea grass is going to make somr cute handles.

Look at my nephews they are only 12 and 11 but look how big they are i will try to post a pic of them as babies. Like my friend they have the nerve to grow up.

My chunkball

My chunk ball is 4 months old today. Crafting.... I did make a thorpe i did not do the garter sts so my ears came out too long. I am making one for chunkball and I am doing the garter ridges. I also want to make a straw bag so I am looking for raffia jute straw something. I found some raffia 80 yards at michaels not sure if that is going to be enough. And I found it in a blue that is close to the wedding colors. I am trying to make straw bags for my bridesmaids you know summer wedding and I thought that would be cute.
