New Cards

I made these cards for my swap buddy for the Mix Maker’s Yarn & Music Swap I am doing.  I am pretty pleased with them, and i am thinking of making more out of the same papers.

FO: Brent’s Socks

December 17, 2008 at 10:42 am (Uncategorized) (, )

My siblings and I decided not to do gifts this year, so these were originally destined for Christmas, but i got to give them to my little brother right when I finished.

This was my first foray into toe-up sock knitting, and I used Simple Toe Up Socks in Four Sizes by Kim Salazar.  The pattern was easy to read, and worked out because I used a worsted weight yarn.

Yarn used Cascade 220 Quatro in color #9437, or Green.  I used size 5 needles, and a reinforcing nylon on the heels and toes.  I did a rib to spiral around the leg, and used a sewn bind off.

He is outside ALL THE TIME.  So I hope these will keep his feet nice and toasty warm!

A picture of them on my messy craft desk….

Thankful Month

December 1, 2008 at 7:02 pm (reflections) ()

Ok, i failed at NaBloPoMo.  But, i think i needed a structure.  and i thought of it.  Thankful Month.  This month, i am going to blog every day about something i am thankful for.  and that is in December, which is 31 DAYS OF THANKFULNESS.  Some of these, you may think are dumb, or cool, or whatever.  I would love to know your thoughts, and what you are thankful for.  can you come up with a list of 31?

Day One:

It is hard to choose the first thing to be thankful for.  these are in no order, i would like to include links and pictures with some, but that isn’t going to happen tonight.  So, one i don’t have to do that with.

I am thankful for my job.  It is not a dream job, and I thought it was a temporary job, and a year and a half later, i am still there.  But, it is a job that has security in this terrible economy.  A job that i am good at, and have been recognized in.  a job where i get to do different things (Have I mentioned i recently started in the Pharmacy 2 days a week?  LOVE IT!)  It is a job that has given me a lot of self-confidence back.  It is a job that many people look down on, and don’t understand, i mean, who would have thought that i would be working retail 5 years out of college?  not me.  But, it works for me right now.

Stay tuned for more thankfulness!
