Cute pom poms

Ms. Toni said are going to add some pom pom I was like maybe. I really did not have any plans but she mentioned I was like what a great idea. So there you go. They came out cute need to make one for sabrenia she was the first to mention a ear flap hat one with the a&t on front.  We will see. I am ready to put a spin like cables or fair isle. 

Lord if you're not gonna change it please make me alright with it! 


I fiddled with the ear flap hat pattern and this is what I got. I will make the third size for myself use key plate 3.5 and worsted weight. I did that for the one my baby is wearing. Gold one is for the baby. I need yarn to match our winter coats. I love them.

Lord if you're not gonna change it please make me alright with it!

Homemade curl stuff

I put prostyle and she butter together. Put it on me hair put big corn rows and rollers on the end and this is what I got. It is still a bit soft the wet pieces dried softer than the dry. Reading recipes I 2/3 made curly pudding. 
Holding gel+moisture+shine
Pro style+shea butter+? Right now I have nothing for shine am really looking for something for shine I am thinking coconut oil.

Lord if you're not gonna change it please make me alright with it!

Cabled baby hat

I was helping a lady who was making a cabled baby hat (really hope I helped her) and since I was 3 rows in (row 3 was where she needed help) I thought I might as well finish it. Not bad so now I have two hats and a jacket. I need to get on the hats for my kids.

They don't stay babies for long

When my oldest was coming up I was in a rush for her to be independent. But I want my baby to slow down. Probably because I have my oldest to help. She is the greatest! Anyway. He is moving to the big boy room next week. No more sippy cups and learning to use the potty. I got to buy pull ups.

What about pockets

What about pockets with matching edging? Is that going to be too much?

I forgot

How satisfying machine knitting is. Took most of the day but I have a 80% complete garment. I have been trying for two weeks to get somewhere hell anywhere with my second fiona with no luck. This is my first sweater on the brother kx350. I don't know why but it is heavy. I made one side longer than the other and I hope blocking will solve my problem. I did buttonholes! Small buttonholes (only 1 yo). I plan on doing a pink and grey one not sure about doing it the same way. Did want to try my hand at the moss stitch jacket. I did this jackets edging by hand. My thought on the moss stitch jacket is to take away some stitches away from the left side and add them to the right side. I guess the moss stitch edges will be solid. I have to get a yarn needle to finish putting my sweater together. That is my knit night project. Can't wait to paint some of my doggie buttons to coordinate with my jacket. I pray I sew it together well.
