Guess what's almost finished?!

Well it's off the needles now! So that's fabulous. Now I just have finishing to do. I have to weave the ends in, and make tassels! CUTE!

Hudson Hat take 2

So generally speaking, I'm not stupid. Granted, I'm no genius either. But this Hudson hat continues to elude me! I have started it twice, and the ear flaps are backwards on it, BOTH TIMES! Though, through trial and error, I'm able to figure out what the hizeck I did wrong! The solution?! Knitting the last row on the ear flap, should have purled it!

Newest Project

I've made 4 candy corn caps, and think I've pretty much perfected the pattern. I gave one to my neighbor's daughter, so if she posts pics, I'll see if I can put them on here. Anyway, I'm going to work on something called a 'hudson hat'. I bought the pattern yesterday and so far have finished an ear flap and I-cord. Yay!

Here is what a hudson hat looks like:

I'm going to work on the other ear flap, and I-cord, and then comes the brim. The only problem I forsee, the pattern calls for 16" size 7 circular needles, and I have only got size 7 Double Pointed Needles, so hopefully I'll be able to work it out with just the DPN. We'll see. Perhaps a trip to Michael's is in order. I looked at Joann's yesterday and they didn't have circulars in anything smaller than a size 8. Plus, I have a coupon for Michael's for 40% off any regular priced item. For yarn selection, I much prefer Michael's over Joanns.

So it might seem like I only knit. I have recently started knitting, in July. So right now it's my obsession. I am also going to make some organization boxes, and want to paint my living room. I have endless amounts of projects to complete! This blog should get crazy!

My candy corn hat

I whipped this up yesterday, during the boys' naps. It turned out SO cute! You may have seen this on my family blog, if so, I apologize! I'm just proud of my crafty attempt.
This is G! My little shnookums :)

Yes I do bite his cheeks ALL the time.


This is my blog for my attempts at craftiness :) Maybe I'll get better, maybe I won't. All I know, is that I wish I were crafty!
