Some WIPs finished


I got some of my WIPs done this weekend. They were mostly baby things and I washed and packed them up without taking pictures. There were 2 light blue sweaters with matching hats and one knit hat. And I worked on something I can't tell you about yet. But I was bad and started 2 more projects without finishing the others that I have going.



I've been spending too much time online trying to promote my Etsy shop. Its getting me nowhere so I'm going to spend more time creating and less time online. I'll just let things play out for now and see what happens.

My blog is boring me too, it needs some sprucing up so I will be working on the sidebar in the upcoming days and maybe add a new pattern or 2.

And lastly (is that a word?), anyway, I just signed up to join the PunkRock Gift Exchange . I have never done one before but it looks like fun so I thought I'd join in. I'll be posting about it so come back to see whats happening. It officially starts March 10.

Ciao!!

Have I mentioned how annoying it is that blogger won't let you make separate paragraphs or it puts in their own wherever it feels like!!!

Marine Corps Kids



I just want to remind everybody about Marine Corps Kids , Delia is collecting anything and everything babies can use. She sends out to military families who are expecting babies. She is a little low on her stockpile, so please think about sending anything a family with a newborn can use. My baby sweaters work up really fast and are always needed. Add a hat and a pair of booties and shes got a great layette to send out to a needy family.






Please check out her blog. I will be working on a box to send out to her this week.






Ciao!!

Hey

I haven't gotten too much finished this week, I have a ton of WIPs that I'm going to try and get done this weekend. Then I have some sewing projects I'd like to work on. I got my craft table cleared off so I have room. Since I haven't finished anything I don't have any pictures to share. Hopefully Monday I will have everything done and some pictures to prove it.
Enjoy your weekend.

Ciao!

Some other things....

Instead of making one big post I've broken it down into 3. Its much easier that way when it comes to post pictures. I'm sure those of you that use blogger know what I'm talking about.





So all of this is what I managed to get done since christmas.







This is a Sasquatch Bootie, its made with simply soft and fun fur in pink. Its larger than a newborn size so I'm going to have to find somewhere else to donate it. Of course I still have to make the second one.








This is the Zodiac sleep sack from Knitty.com. I love it and will be making more. I use Bernat in a large skein that had at AC Moore. It was a 14 oz skein for a limited time. I should have got more cuz I love this colorway. I made a crochet version of this but I forgot to take a picture.







And these are just some little sweaters I made.













I've made some other things, for my estsy store. Maybe I'll post them later right now I have to get back to the Daytona 500 and some knitting that has to get done.




Ciao!

Preemie Blankets

This is what I did while I was sick. They are all about 18"x 18" and under.
They are made with acrylic yarn. I love making ripple blankets in preemie sizes. Its like a tiny little afghan. I've got to get some more made.








Hats for me....

I made these for myself. One is just pretty and the other is for when its real cold out.



This one is made with Soy Wool Stripes and is based on this pattern. I didn't follow it exactly.




This one is for when its really cold out. I found that none of the hats I've knit for myself are very warm. This yarn is a heavier worsted weight in wool and the brim makes it warmer that a beanie style hat. It is sooo warm I don't feel anything even when its windy. Always nice to have when walking the dog at night. I used this pattern and moda dea Vision, its 65% wool-35% acrylic. Its nice and soft.

I'm back....

Hey there! Well I'm finally over the flu. I have been for at least a week, I just haven't felt like blogging. I know I'm a bad blogger. I've been working on promoting my Etsy shop and making some more items to list. I've got 2 more doll dresses and 2 more baby sweaters. I hope to get pictures taken and get them listed this week. Hopefully the promoting will help me get some sales. I've joined facebook and some other sites that promote the selling of handmade goods. The only thing with them is that they are all other etsians and I see lots of things I want to buy. Not good. I'll have to have some self control until I sell a couple of things.

I've got lots of pictures of baby things I've made for Southside hospital. I didn't feel like downloading them right now so I'll try to get to that tomorrow.

Well enjoy your night and I'll try to be a better blogger, promise.

Ciao!
