One Headband Done!

I finished one of the headbands that I have to do. That leaves two more. I finished one of the headbands yesterday. By the way, would you use loops at the bottom of a man's bookmark or fringe? Your advice on this would help very much!

Christmas Plan

I finished the headband!!!! Now I only have 3 headbands, and 4 kercheifs left! LOL! I have decided to give my little girl cousins hair things. Any girl can have fun with that, right? The headband came out very cute. I used the light pink Red Heart and some hot pink Cascade 220. I still have plenty of yarn left for more exciting headbands and kercheifs. I thought that I was doing good with my Christmas presents but after looking at the Knitters Review forum, I guess I was wrong. I am happy that I like using up yarn, or this yarn diet would not be a good thing. I will check back in a little bit later, probably after finishing the next headband which is going to be light pink and white.Bye!

Two FO's and Lots of Frogging

Happy Memorial Day! To all the people who read this, you will be proud of me. I finished two things today! Two crocheted bookmarks.

Hook Size: I/9
Yarn: Read Heart Super Saver in a light pink (I lost the yarn label)
Notes: Easy pattern, made to help out my yarn diet and encourage me to make something big.

In other news, I have gone on a yarn diet this summer. Right now I am set on using up my yarn, instead of buying more. I have decided to wait until the very end of summer vacation, then go to the the LYS and buy lots and lots of yarn! I am eagerly using up yarn! I had this tiny ball left over of the pink Red Heart so when I saw the little crocheted bookmark I had to make some. Next on my list is to use the leftover Red Heart and two other pinks to make a crocheted headband. That will probably be finished today, as well. I have enough Homespun yarn from Lion Brand to make one hundred pairs of mittens so I will probably be making many pairs of mittens for Christmas presents this year. I guess I have talked long enough today, so for now, bye!

Where I Am Getting My Lace Stitches

To whoever left me the comment, I got the snowflake lace stitch and the horseshoe lace stitch in a booklet that I got at Wal-Mart! You have to love Wal-Mart! It is called A Beginner's Guide to Knit Stitches and Easy Projects, published by Leisure Arts. It is an awesome booklet! I am not a huge fan of most of the projects, but I love all the diffrent stitch patterns. Many of these stitches I had never heard of, but they are beutiful!!

Anyway, I am so excited about Memorial Day tomorrow! We have a couple people coming over to cook-out hamburgers and hot dogs which I have been waiting to have for days!! Tomorrow, I can hang out around the house and watch the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, which I have heard is very good, and knit. I still have to work on my Horseshoe Lace scarf, and post a picture for the Amazing Lace. I will talk to you later!

5 Pattern Repeats, Two Year Old, Yarn Store

So far I have five pattern repeats done on my Horseshoe Print lace scarf. It is soooooooooooooooooo gorgous! Last night at the American Idol party, I did not end up on kid duty until the very end. Catherine, the only little girl, was so tired, as was I, and we ended up asleep on my mom's bed. THey ended up having to go home right after that, so we were woken up, and I carried her out to the car. Her brother's managed to stay awake. Funniest qoute of the evening was Michael saying that he isn't brave about the dark, but he is brave about dangerous things, like centipedes and spiders. I was shaking from trying not to laugh!

In other news we may end up with a two-year-old, Ava, today. I would love to see her in a yarn store. We might get to go so I can buy some yarn and get started on Mary Margaret's (my cousin) clutch purse that she is getting for Christmas. I have to post a to do list on here so I wil be motivated to finish things! I need to go knit so bye for now!

Can You Say Bye-Bye Lace Scarf?

Let's just say that my snowflake lace scarf got frogged today at school which by the way is OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I started a horseshoe lace scarf with the same yarn on the same needles. Well, I really couldn't use anything else because that was the only stuff I had in my purse. We are having an American Idol party tonight to vote for Taylor!! I can't wait! I have to go clean up because the people who are coming are bringing their kids, so I will probably end up on kid duty. Today I got to go to our preschool at my church and had to watch the kids for the teacher clean-up day and made 11 dollars! I now have $70 cash! Most of it made baby-sitting. Can you say more yarn?

New Lace Scarf

I am working on this pretty lace scarf. It is using a snowflake lace pattern in a light gray yarn. I am using size 4 needles so it is very slow going. I have done two twelve row pattern repeats and I am working on the third. School is almost overso I will have plenty of time to knit!

In other news I am allso working on a dark blue petal bib from the book One Skein from Interweave Press. It is written by Leigh Radford. I love love love love this book! So far I have made the cute felted clutch, the square drawstring bag, a pink petal bib, the baby hat,the cupcakes, and the pom-pom boa. I am in love with this! The more yarn I use the more my parents will buy me! I am all about buying new yarn!

Speaking of new yarn, we just got a new yarn shop down here in Clay! It is called Knit'n'Stitch. Compared to Michaels, it has a small amount of yarn, but that yarn is very good quality! I have bought some King Cole DK in light pink and knit a gorgues Branching Out scarf with it. It was my first lace project and I am very proud of it. I will post a picture of it if I remember! I also bought some hot pink Cascade 220 for my felted clutch. I will post pictures of that as well!

I need to go study for my final two exams tomorrow! Two more hours of school!!!!!
