Why all of the pics? I am tired of combing my hair. So I made a wig. I was Bout to give up and do a sew in? (Pic of my base) but another look at my in progress wig I realized I was on the right track. I was so excited I had to capture as I went along. When I made a wig before I used a old half wig this time I had no guides so I was nervous I took it down once. Had the rows too close. Now I just need to tighten up my rows put a hide a track track and I am done. For my leave out I did two rows of crochet braids. Not so easy with 8 in hair. The beauty supply store also had some kinky hair two for 10 not really sure how I would rock that. You tube it.

Machine knitting after all this time

I haven't machine knitted in a while. I want a grey scarf. Attempted three times to make one and one of those times was on the machine. Here is my fourth try second for the machine. The first machine the sponge bar is shot that is why I was having such a hard time I put up the second machine it is knitting so easy I plan to go running with this scarf. I was going to wait and get a new ball so or can be super long but not really sure I feel like it. Nah make it super long. I don't really like taking it off the machine. I have maybe two more times of taking it off the machine in me. So I am going to break for the night and start fresh tomorrow.

Long cowl

This is one of my Christmas knits a grey scarf I started doing a herringbone cowl but casting 220 was too much for me do. I am doing my own thing. Basket weave and then sewing the cast on and bind off edge together. I really like the stitch the worsted yarn and 15 needles creates. But this is going to take a really long time. My next project is to finish my very way wrap.

Nail of the day

Reading pinterest one lady said it took about 4 coats to get a pretty glitter polish to look right so I tried it. It only took three coats and I love it. When I bought it I thought I made a mistake. But now I am so glad and it only host 1.50. It is NYX mushroom glitter.

Long tail elf hat

It came out nice I did something wrong cause it looks more sorting hat ( Harry potter) than the hat in the picture. I still like it.

My light bulb hat

It came out great. I had to cut it short I only did 6 in it turned out fine. 6 in was just enough I used the rest for a Pom Pom. This hat is so soft and stretchy.

Halloween was great

I think I got this down.  We went to Halloween fest at the mall, trunk or treat then went to our usual neighborhood and then our current neighborhood.  Greedy I know.  We had a ball and the baby was the funniest he would hold his bag out.  At first he was scared of the scary costumes then he realized they have the candy and he stop caring.  I had to put him on time out because he was sitting in the back of the car eating his candy! He could not wait to get home. 

The crazy part about taking pictures.  When the oldest poses so does the baby. 

I feel

Like a miracle worker I didthis hair style wth a half bottle of water and ten bobby pins
