Yes I finished another pair of socks. This pattern from the spring Knitty 09 called Cirque. I made them with Bernat Sox yarn. I didn't like the way the toe was in the pattern, so I just grafted the toe closed. The pattern which I followed I think that the sock looked to be square, so I undid and redid the toe.

My daugther likes them and wants them but I said no these ones are mine. She can have the next pair. Maybe I am mean to her? I will think of giving them to her since she is a great kid and well behaved. God Bless and have yourself a great day.

Kitty Amugurimi

OK I am trying to upload a picture but my computer just won't let me. So let me tell you that I did finish another kitty for my swap. This one is red and yellow, I will post pictures next time. I am also working on my second swap kitty because I decided to keep the first one I made.

Great the Picture uploaded today.

Now someone asked about my socks. I made them just from a basic sock pattern, I used size 3.25mm needles and casted on 64st, all socks are simple to me only because I have been knitting socks now for ten years or more.

Swap Project

Just finished this one this morning. I signed up for an Amigurumi kitty swap over on "Swap-Bot" . Someone else likes them but can't make them so I decide to make one for her and she can make me something else that she enjoys making. I need to make up another kitty amigurumi, I think I will make up a different one and not send the partner the same kitty.

I will try to post more pictures of everything that I make up for you all to see. God bless and have yourself a great day.

I am back with more photos

Here is my last crochet Birthday gift. The party was postponed and set to another date this Sunday. so I had more time to make a toy for my daughter's friend. I also made a pair of socks to go with it.

Here is a picture of the first bag I made, it didn't felt the way I would have liked it. I think it is to thick I wanted a thinner bag so I made a second one. The picture below is a much nicer bag to my liking anyway. I have divided slots inside so I can separate my thing. I like it much better.

I am not sure what you as a reader would like. I am asking if you would like to see more photos or would you like to do more reading of things I do?

More Knitted Toys

More knitted toys, My daughter has a Birthday Party to go to this weekend and I am never to sure of what gift to give. Now a days people just give gift cards, but I like to give something handmade and unique. I am working on another toy for the party, but if I don't have time to finish it I will give this one.

I have been thinking about starting my own podcast, but yes but, I don't think I will only because I can not be consistent on updating my blog weekly. Besides I wouldn't know what to talk about. What would you talk about on a podcast anyway. There are alot of knitting podcast out there already.

I have done more knitting but just haven't gotten around to taking pictures. I have made two felted bags just because the first one I didn't like. I would have made another one if the second one didn't turn out. I will try to getting around to taking photos and posting for you to see.

My son turned 10 yesterday and I didn't make him anything but I did get him a mp3 cd player something that he wanted, only because he likes to use mine. He is the little guy in the picture of the soctopus toy above. Thats all for now so take care and God Bless.

New Year

Well the new year has arrived and I have been busy with my puppies. I still have one puppy left looking for a new home. He is 3 months old now. The puppies were ready yo go at 6 weeks but because it was Dec. 23 too close to Christmas I didn't advertise, only because I don't want them to go to someone buying for a gift and the person getting the gift doesn't want it. It is a really big job taking care of a puppy. Sure they are cute but they need work too.

Update the puppies are all gone to new homes. I was a little ticked off with the one lady that told me her sad story, so I reduced my asking price to make her and her (everyone laughs at her) daughter be able to get a puppy. Some how it wasn't supposed to be she didn't come to get the dog and I did get my asking price from another lady.

Enough of the puppies I have been busy with birthday gifts for my childrens friends. My son has yet another B.D. party to go to for this weekend and I need to get a couple pair of socks done. My daugther has a B.D. party for March 1st and I would like to make Sheldon for her. I have already done one and now working on a second one.
