End of the Week

Here are a few photos from my Iphone Instagram App. I love my Iphone and I love Instagram. I am not sure how I feel about Facebook taking over Instagram but as long as they leave it alone and leave it free, all is good.

Love my pink converse, purchased at Target in Bellingham, Washington, they have come out of the closet for the season.

Pink Converse

Love these wrist warmers I made – the pattern is in Issue 10 of Mollie Makes Magazine. A British Publication that I wish I could readily get here in North Vancouver. The last Issue I have seen here was Issue 10 and Issue 13 is already on the stands, sigh. I guess I just need to bite the bulllet and subscribe.

Wrist Warmers

Here are my son’s socks which I am still working on, almost finished the first one and then will be on to the second one. I do like knitting socks, love the repetitiveness of stocking stitch. This pattern really calls for rib all the way through, me and rib don’t really get along, I prefer just knitting or purling, not a combination of both in the same row.

Socks In Progress


Owl Love

Found a pattern for this cute owl in my blog reader this morning. The tutorial can be found here.
I am going to make them into pins. The purple one was made exactly as tutorial indicated.
Sugar and Cream Cotton with a 5.00 mm hook.

This one was made with the same cotton yarn, I used a 4.00mm hook on this one.

I put safety eyes on both of them. I am really pleased at how they turned out

Wishing every one a day filled with love and happiness. My son presented this to me this morning.

Of Bowls and Balls……oh and Fruit

I have seen many patterns for crochet bowls, I decided this would be a good project to use as a stash buster. I found a pattern online and set to making the bowls. Here is the first set I made, with a pear and apple. This first set is made from Vanna’ Choice yarns in a cream and purple color. I gifted these to a friend for her birthday.

I made a second set for a young lady whom I was fortunate to meet in Starbucks, she watched me crocheting the first set and I promised to make some bowls for her. She has a little brother so I made a couple of balls so she could share. I heard from her Mom who says that the bowls have been filled with various treasures.

The pattern for the nesting bowls is here, this pattern was also featured in the Issue 10 of Mollie Makes Magazine. I combined a few tutorials for the balls. The pear tutorial is here and the apple is here


Ready to Turn the Heel

20120212-165434.jpg

Here I am ready to turn the heel. Knitting the leg of the sock on one needle has been enjoyable so far, the next part will be the test. If I can successfully turn this heel, the sock will get a mate. If not then I shall be content to wear one sock, a colorful and pretty sock nonetheless.
Wish me luck in my heel turning journey and hope for a mate to be born!


Socks 101

2012 was going to be the year I was going to knit socks. I was also going to finish off my works in progress. In my knitting notebook I made a list if the items I had left to do, shown here.

20120208-154925.jpg

I have finished a few of these items and marked the date I finished them. I have actually started a couple of others that are not added to the list….sigh, it never ends. It is always nice to have a few things on the go, it is never dull that away!


Evening Hook Time

Tea and some hook time. Not sure what it will turn out to be but it passes the time and keeps me busy.
