Nostalgia-O-Rama!

Man, I have been trying to write this blog for like 3 days now lol! My daughter barely gives me the time to do anything. It’s amazing that I get any projects done!

So- Oh yea! I won an Ebay auction for some various vintage knitting needles and notions. I was happy when I won but now that the package finally came in the mail, I’m in love ❤ ! Not only are they kool because they are vintage (circa 1960’s) but they are soooo awesome to knit with.. pointy points! I also got this HUGE crochet hook,  size S! My favorite needles so far are the Bernat ones, so nice and smoooooth. I think that I am going to begin collecting vintage needles. There is such a difference in the quality. I love their design and also even appreciate the packaging. Though it could all just be that I am in general nostalgic, I love all things vintage.

I also got in the mail this week my very first order from Knitpicks! Lovely yarn and needles. I purchaced 4 skeins of Merino Style wool and 4 Knit Picks Palette. I tell ya- I was pretty disappointed to have received the yarn. The colors I received were much darker than what is pictured on their website. I’ll still use it but now I don’t have the colors I wanted for a project 😦

I also purchased 101 Luxury One Skein Wonders. There are many beautiful projects. There are three baby projects I’m dying to make! One I did make- it was a cute crochet hat, it is pictured on the cover. I made it for my little girl for Easter but it turned out to be too long. However I pulled a few rows and made it into a nice hat anyway but I plan to remake it. Everyone that saw her complimented how cute the hat was (and how cute she was!)

Christmas Time Is Here

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on December 19, 2008 by sweetnightmare

OMG.. I decided to make gifts for my family and friends very late in the game. I’ve chosen a few patterns from Ravelry. I have completed only a wrist cuff for my niece, and about half way done with a Strong Bad (incase you don’t know who Strong Bad is.. Homestarrunner) for my friend. While crocheting these projects I realize how slow I am. The mother of a friend of mine can crochet a mile a minute, but she holds her hooks different.

Anyway- I’ll update a little later on with progress pictures. For now I have to get my daughter ready to go with me to Michael’s and pick up some supplies!
