My 411

Sorry about such a long wait!! I have been busy knitting up a storm!!!! Well to start off for Thanksgiving was fun!!! I made some of these hairclips (sorry no picture) I helped set the table!!

We also got snow!!! (A couple days after thanksgiving)

I managed to knit 2 pairs of mittens, sew some headbands and finish my pj pants!!!

Here is one of the mittens I finished!! It is just a very simple stockinnet stitch mitten. I made one pair for myself and the other one for my big sister.

This baby bib I made for my teacher whose wife was expecting a baby. They really liked it and sent me a thank you card!!!

This crochet flower neclace took me like 10 minuets to make. It was super simple and easy to make!! I really like the way it turned out and will definaltly be making more in the near future. On the other hand it rained here. Hard. Our street and backyard flooded so bad that we couldn't even drive anywhere let alone walk. So I was stuck inside. All day. A full 24 hours. It was horrible. I was about ready to pluck my eyes out just because it was something to do. I had to go to the yarn store to get some yarn for my next project and we had apsolutely no food in the house!!! I mostly watched T.V. yesturday and played on the computer. Our power kept flickering on and off though so someimes my activities were interupted because my computer had to restart. That's is about it. It has been pretty borring around here so nothing spectacular to anounce to you guys...

I am going a little crazy!!

I have to say, I am going a little nuts here. I have been stuck inside my house for more than 24 hours!! Our street it flooded to the point that we can not drive through it!! There is no food here, my mom was planning to go to the grocery store to day but couldn't. I have nothing to do. I need to go to the craft store to get some interfacing for my latest sewing project!!! Our power has been flickering on and off, therefore my computer has been turning on and off!! I am going to make this post quick because I don't want to have to keep retyping all of this!! I will definately give you the 411 when I can leave this house!!

See ya later!!

Chatter about What's New

Sorry for the long delay in posting, I have been REALLY busy with projects!! My s.S. teacher assigned 2 projects that were due today, not to mention a thesis paper and a Spanish project.
Well I joined our school's new Eco-club!!!! It is totally awesome!! Their are about 20 kids in the club and what we do is each week we try do something that recycles reuses..etc. Well this week we collected old crayons, peeled them, separated them by color and then donated them to a company that makes into crayons for the differently-abled. We are also making our own dirt. We got some worms and every week we add some leftover food into the box of worms. We have already gotten a ton!!!
Unfortunately basketball ended last week. We lost our last game, but we earned second in our division!!! Now only if I could find my jersey and turn it in....
I have had no time to knit or crochet so I have nothing to show off today.

How Could I Make This Better?

I feel that my blog is lacking excitement. To me it seems kinda flat and borring. I was wondering if you readers (if I have any) could help me out on making my blog better. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You


P.S. Sorry about not posting for a while, I have been really busy with school projects.

Washington D.C.!!!!

You won't believe me but I just won a large Vera Bradley duffel bag!!! I entered in a raffle and won!! I am so happy!! I really like the pattern/color of it too!! here's a picture of it...

My basketball team also won yesterday. I managed to score 2 baskets!!! I am very proud of myself. I was in 3 of the 4 quarters for the first time!
Halloween was fun. I got a medium amount of candy. My friends and I went trick-or-treating for about 3 hours. I didn't have a blast though because one of my "friends" kept whining and say things like "don't run" or "don't walk so fast" and "I don't eat junk food, I am giving away all of my candy". She had to say that right when I was eating a kit-kat. I will not be trick or treating with her again. She just sucks the life out of what ever room she walks into. For the entire time that I have known her I've never seen her smile. She is never happy.
On the bright side I finished sewing my first skirt ever!! (picture coming soon)
I am going on a field trip to Washington D.C. tomorrow. I have to be on the bus to the airport at 3:15 am. I am very excited. I of course packed some knitting and crocheting to do on the bus and airplane. I was not able to post very many pictures today because I packed my camera. We are staying at some nice hotel for 2 nights and we are required to use carry on. That is not hard for me because I am only packing the bare necessities.
I also managed to sew (and finish) my halloween costume. I was an angle. I thought it turned out to be really good,(again picture coming soon.)
That is all for now. I will hopfully be posting again on sunday!!

See ya!

Pretty Exciting!

How do you like the new look? I thought the old colors were a little dark and depressing. The lime green seemed brightened things up a bit.
To start off my basketball team has one 2 games so far!!! (out of like 6). We have already beaten our record from last year of winning only one game. My soccer team also won their game. The score was 5-0 us. I managed to score a goal this game!! I am so proud of myself!! I rarley score goals because I am mostly a defense-ive person. I have started a baby blanket for my basketball coach that just recently had a baby!!! Here is the pattern (Ravelry link). I like how it is in the shape of a star and when made with bright colors is very kid friendly. The colors of the blanket I am making are purple, pink, blue, and white. (Progress picture coming soon)
I had a piano recitle on Sunday. I did really bad. I repeated this one part of the song 3 times instead of 2 and made some silly mistakes throughout it. The only thing that kept me from cying on the way home was that an older man came up to me and said that his grandson loved my song and that I did a very good job. When he said that I couldn't help but smile. Even though people may not realize it but comments like that can really make your day a whole lot better. If that person is reading this right now I would just like to say Thank You.!.
That is about all that has happened here. Nothing else really exciting has been happening.

Keep Knitting

What a Beautiful Weekend!

To start off I'd like to say that this has to be the most beautifel weekend this year. We had clear blue skys. It was in the 60's and the trees just started to turn!!! I am sad that my long weekend is almost over. Here are some pictures I took while I was rideing my bike around...

This is a HUGE yellow tree that actually covers a house that is behind it!!

A a close-up of the above tree ( you can see the house that is behind it)

Another tree that is almost done changeing

I was standing under the above tree when I took this picture

Another picture of the uderside of the above tree. I really like this picture because the sun is right behind the branch.

I really enjoyed that bike ride. It was beautiful outside and the sun wasn't too hot. I was gone for like an hour taking pictures and enjoying the ride.

I also finished another fit to be tied clutch. Unfortunetly I have not been able to take a picture of it yet. I have made some more progress on my shrug.

It has gotten almost double it size it was before!!! It is hard to do the same thing for a long period of time.

I also went to visit my sister in College. When I went shopping with her we dropped into the Coach store and they were having a HUGE sale!!! I got a Coach wristlet that was originally for $100 for $30!!!

See you Later!!!

FO's of the Week

I managed to finish a lot of stuff this week even though they pilled the homework on us, HARD. Well to start off I will post the pictures of the objects that I finished last week...which were all cellphone cases, here are pictures of the ones that I could find

This purple one is my favorite of all of them

This one was made of a dark blue yarn and a light blue fun fur yarn. I also crocheted a simple hat. I really like the way it turned out..

I was also able to finish a quilt that I started in the summer. It has a tribal theme to it.

Some of my favorite squares

My Favorite of the whole quilt

This green squar-ish thing is the backing of the quilt.

That is about all that has happened here. We had a soccer game this morning. Lost 9-1 the team had the most beastly people I have ever seen!!!

Keep Craftin

What a Great Day!!

This weekend I scored my first goal of the season. I am very proud of myself because I am not very good at forward. I am more a defensive player. Yesturday was a very good day to play soccer. There was a nice breeze out and it was llike 70 degrees out. Right after the game me and my family went out to see a movie. We saw "Ghost Town". It was fairly good. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. And of course I knittied in the movie theater while I watched it. I am working on my 4th cell phone case. i really like the pattern and how it takes me less than a day to make one. i'll show you some pictures of the ones that i finished next time. I want to make something else, using crochet, I was thinking maybe a pair of gloves or some sort of toy. HA!!! How about a halloween decoration!!! Maybe I'll crochet a pumpkin! I am going to look on Ravelry right now.....

See you later

Rain, Rain, Go AWAY, Come Back Another Day!!!

OMG!!! We must of had a least 12 inches of rain from hurricane Ike!!! I was stuck inside and about ready to scream and destroy everything that was around me!! Our street got so flooded in front of my house that we couldn't drive out of it!!! I thought I was gona go mad!! I took some pictures of the rain storm.... here they are....

Our nicely flooded street!!

A nice river that was flowing through our backyard.

A nice little waterfall that was in our backyard

That nice little splash in our river is supose to be a drain but as you can see it really isn't doing a very good job.

Now that that is out of the way why don't I tell you about my latest FO and projects. Well first I finished my sunny set purse from crochet today. I actually finished it like 3 months ago but i couldn't find the right button for it and I was kinda lazy about taking a picture of it. Here are pictures of it.....

full view

Close up

sorry about the ligting. Since it was raining outside I had to take a picture of it inside and the lighting was not good at ALL!

I am also working on my first shrug!!! It is turing out really well so far... I really like the look of it. It is a lace knitting pattern. Here are some more pictures.....

The first image is the best picture of what color it is. It is suppose to look like a sage green.

That's all that has happened here. My teachers are hitting me hard with all of the hw and projects. Who in the right mind would make 2 big projects from different classes due on the same day!!! I should probably get started on them.......

Talk to you later!!!

Friday, September 12, 2008


I am happy to say that I finished my first pair of mittens!!! I decided to make them once I noticied that it was starting to get a little could outside, and my hands started to get could while waiting for the bus to come. I got the pattern out of one of my mom's old knitting magazines. It is dated 1989!!!! It is a simple pair of mittens with a cable going down the middle and garter stitch in the backround. What really subprised me was how they fit me really well!!! Here are some pictures of them....

Sorry about the backrounds. I couldn't think of anywhere else to photgraph them. I really liked the yarn I used. It was a wool/cotton blend and is very warm and cozy!! I donn't know if you can tell but the yarn is green and brown colored.

Nothing else really happend. I started school about 2 weeks ago, I like all of my teachers. They seem really nice. I was planning on posting pictures of all of my projects I finished over the summer, but I don't have time to take pictures of all of them and post them. I might do it over Christmas break.

I am thinking about making a shrug for my next project and I think this one might be a good one to try... I think how it is open and seems to have a nice fit. It look fairly easy to knit. I found it on Ravelry.

Talk to ya later!!!!

More projects Finished!!

I just finished crocheting a scarf and 2 hats. I am planing to give them away for Christmas presents. I also made a baby hat for my neighboors 1 year old birthday party. I really like it and it took me less than a day to make it!! The scarf I made used some really fluffy bulky yarn and ened up being about 5 feet long and 1 foot wide. That took me 2 days to crochet. I will post pictures of all of my finished projects at the end of my summer vacation.
Today I trimmed my guinea pig's nails. It was not fun. She would run away when she felt the pressure of the nail clippers pushing on her nail. The only way I got her to keep still was by letting her eat a carrot while i clipped her nails. It took me about an our to clip them!!!

I have gotten a lot done lately!!!! I made this purse from my Happy Hooker book.....

I am really happy about the way it turned out!!! I like the black handles with the blue body!!

Here is what the inside looks like!! I couldn't get a good close-up picture because of how dark the fabric is.

Nothing else exciting happened. I have just been packing for my vacation to California. We are only doing carry-on because it is much faster and costs less (because of that stupid fee).
