edit* sorry for all of you who already read this post... I forgot to do all the links... they are here now....
Where do I start.... well, yesterdays and today I made this:
Start date: June 5th
End date: June 6th
Yarn: cotton classic
Pattern: Flower Pacifier Clip
(from the itty-bitty nursery book/this was a free pattern)
Needles: US #3
Recipient: a friend's new baby girl!
super cute, i love it. Chloe modeling it for you all:O)
I went to visit her in the hospital earlier today, that baby is one cute little peanut!
Lets see... I don't even know where to start.
1~ I got 4 garbage bags full of wool, fleece in the raw, meaning I need to pick through it (the vegetable matter and poop) then wash it and decide weater or not I want to card it myself or send it out. With the help of some friends have done a little bit so far...
this picture on the left,and right too, is only one bag... I have a lot of work ahead of me!
2~ I spun up some mohair and wool blended roving. It was so easy to spin, it just slipped though my fingers effortlessly. It practically spun itself. love it. I now have about 573 yards of this yarn.
3~ I'm still alive in Sock Wars... but haven't gotten my SIP's yet... i don't really care anymore and wish my socks would just come and kill me. I'm sick of the waiting.
4~ Joe and I decided that I no longer have to work, once summer is over I'll be a full SAHM!
5~ We have also decided to homeschool this coming year, I'm a bit anxious about that.
6~ I joined a swap, yes another one:O) This one is through ravelry's christian knitter and crocheter's group. Its a Secret Prayer Sock Swap II, I'm excited about it!
7~ I didn't have any yarn that I thought my pal would truly love so I ordered some... (from ruby sapphire yarns i got a discount for being in the swap!) and some for me;O) really I couldn't decide which one she would like so I ordered all 3 and picked one for her when they came to my door. All lovely.
8~ this is the one I picked for her.
9~ I'm still weaving in ends on my sweater... but the good news is that I only have one arm's worth of ends to go!!! I'm almost done!
10~ We've decided to put our house up for sale... the Realtor came over to day to get all the specks of the house and hopefully by early next week we'll be good to go!
11~ I'm now realizing that I'm going to have to keep my house super clean and DE-CLUTTERED... please pray for me ;O) With 3 little ones its going to be chalanging.
12~ We got a new stove last week! it has a convection fan in it! and a glass top, easy cleaning.
13~ We planted most of our garden, everything except the tomatoes that we started from seed we saved from last year
14~ My baby is growing up... and that makes me sad.
15~ We also got a new vacuum, a Dyson. It works really well!
16~ I had lots of fun at my LYS sheering days/open house. I convinced them to give one of the llama's a mohawk:O)
17~ I think that's it... or at least that is all I can think of.
