This is what my diamond lace scarf looks like now…

I can knit lace. But I discovered that if I screw it up, I cannot fix it.

Oh well, lesson learned.


I love those WIPs!

First, I have to mention my most important work in progress, Jaxon! He is progressing nicely, don’t you think?
Okay, on to my crafty WIPs. First, I have decided to try my hand at lace knitting. I decided to start off slow by knitting a scarf with a lace pattern I found in Stitchionary (pattern #110 for anyone with the book that wants more details). It is going well so far I think. I love the yarn, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, but I am afraid I will never memorize the lace pattern which seems like it will make this project so tedious. We will see!
The whole point in practicing lace is to start on this project next.
It is Soleil from Knitty. I have some Knit Picks Shine Sport in Orchid that I want to use to knit it!
Another scarf I started over the weekend is the Shades of Plaid Scarf from Crochet Me. It doesn’t look like much now, but I think it ill be cool when I finish.
I also recently finished a baby sweater, more on that soon. (Thanks to Aunt Lyndsay for amusing the boy while I sewed up the last few seems on that one!)

A small tidbit of information you don’t want:

Sometimes when J poops really loudly, it scares the dogs.

You’re welcome.

Look what K made!

J finally fits into one of his handmade gifts!

Thanks for the great sweater K! Don’t you all just love the colors?

It has just recently (in the last few weeks) started that little J notices his surroundings more. I am now convinced that the smiles I see are not only due to gas, but actually as a reaction to the things he sees. Let the pictures below of him in his bouncy chair and on his play mat be evidence of this new found interactive-ness. Enjoy!

And now for something different…

So, I have been a little one sided recently when it comes to the blog. Baby, baby, baby. Althought that is fun, I need to get a bit of a life!

Just recently, I have tried to put some more of my past made projects on Ravelry. I have also just recently added quite a few things to my queue (more on that later). But, if you aren’t cool enough to have an account on Ravelry, below is a sample of the things I have made in the past and recently.

Okay, I couldn’t not put a picture of little J in this post. It’s a process…

Superbowl Fun!

February 4, 2008

Yesterday was the Superbowl, as I am sure you know. Me and the fam went to a par-tay hosted by our friends Sonia and Amy. J was cute, but not so amused during the first half.

The adults in the room however, were very amused. Nothing like a crap-load of food to make a group happy!

One of the main activities of the evening was a quiz about the Superbowl that Sonia got from work and brought to the party for us to play. Amy and Sonia even provided prizes, one for the winner and one for the looser! Lyndsay ended up being the big winner, taking home a DVD copy of Rudy and Jerry Maguire, while I ended up being the big loser (I only got 2 out of 15 correct). I won something great, a can of Cheddar Cheese Pringles! I have not yet popped open my prize, but they are calling my name so I don’t think it will be long before they are gone.

I hope that all of you out there had just as much fun yesterday as we did.

Happy Monday!
