Lazy sunday

I got a lot of relaxing done today and it was great. I went out with Mom and got the yarn I need for the baby sweater and I picked up some yummy peruvian wool for my current swap partner. I think she is gonna love it. I also got about half of Makenzie's ballerina done it is smaller than I expected but is going to be so cute! I just wish I didn't have to go back to work tomorrow, I could get so much done if I didn't have to work :)

Swap day

So I am a member of several swap groups on and today I got my package from the Monty Python swap it was amazing. It is so much fun to meet other crafters and challange ourselves to try new thing making these packages for each other.

Making progress

Well the tea scarf is almost done I just need a little more yarn but I love how it is looking. And I finished Duane's domino mask tonight while watching the new episode of Grimm. I am still not tired so maybe I will get even more done tonight.

Day 3

Well last night I almost finished the scarf but I ran out of yarn, it is looking great though. Tonight I was asked to make a baby sweater for one of my managers. So I am picking out a pattern for that, it will be nice to get paid for a project. On an unrelated note Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is an amazing movie a must see!!!

Not much done today

Well I had to stay late at work again and got to skip my breaks so no crocheting was done there today. Hopefully I will get some done tonight while we are watching Thor with my Dad, I would like to finish my scarf tonight. But Thor is sooo distracting........

Gotta start somewhere

I have never been the type of person to talk a lot about themselves, I think I am a better listener. So I wasn't really sure where to start this blog. I just want to share some of the fun things I have made, maybe have something to keep me on track with my projects and to keep challenging me to try new things. I hope you like seeing my journey from novice to master crafter.
