It's been a little while

Sorry it has been a little while since I have posted. I will probably update tomorrow. A lot has been going on in my life. I am currently working on a beautiful bolero from Stitch 'N Bitch The Happy Hooker and a drop stitch scarf. Today I went to the craft store and got a jewelry making kit and a hemp kit. It should be fun. I did a small group on jewelry making so I really wanted to give that a try. I'm hoping it will bring out some more creativity in me. I made bracelet from hemp that I will post tomorrow.

Cell Phone Case

Got another knitting project done! I just LOVE the stockinette stitch. I can't get over how beautiful it looks. It's definately my favorite knitting stitch. I made this from the Stitch 'N Bitch The Knitter's Handbook. It was made with Red Heart Worsted Weight yarn.

Windy City Scarf is finished!

This is finally done! There are a few small imperfections as it is only my third knitting project! I don't think I can block it because there's acrylic in it, can I?? I will have to look into that. Anyway, it was made using Lion Brand Wool-Ease, and the pattern is from Stitch 'N Bitch The Knitter's Handbook. It's totally adorable, and I love the color scheme!

Made a Sunshine Dishcloth

I was browsing for patterns, and I came across a cute pattern I wanted to make for my mother for mother's day. It is so cute. Her kitchen is yellow and peach, so I used Lily's Sugar 'N Cream. It is really nice. Now I will have to work on other pieces for her. It is hard to find any kitchen accessories in the colors she chose. So I will make them all!

Here is the pattern in case you are interested. He has quite a few of other beautiful patterns

Made My First Pattern

I'm so excited. For a few months now, I've been pulling at ideas to make up some crochet patterns, but I really lack creativity most of the time. Well today when I got home, I decided I wanted to make something with beads (I'm on a bead kick), so out of nowhere I started crochetng and ended up with a beaded headband. I'm so thrilled, it's nothing huge, but it's a big step for me! I will take a picture tonight and post it tomorrow with the pattern.

Windy City

I'm working on the windy city scarf from Stitch 'N Bitch. Man I don't remember my crochet looking this rough. I'm posting a closeup but even that isn't doing justice. It looks so noobish. Some stitches are too loose, some are too tight, some just look crooked. Maybe I won't get any better than this. But, I will keep plugging away.
