A Little Late

So, I know I missed July…Sorry bout that 😦 It was a good reason though, I promise!!!! I was very much busy with moving. Yes, we moved. We needed more room 🙂 Anyway… You don’t want to hear about my boring life soooo….

First up this time is knitting. I, unfortunately, don’t have any finished projects. O.o Its been a very busy month with the move. I’m sorry. I had a fail 😦 BUT! I DID make progress! I finished my first ever fingerless glove! I am very proud of myself 😉 Lol!

Ok….I just realized I don’t have a pic with it with the thumb done….O.o The thumb IS done though! So yeah =D These are the Soaring Heart Mitts by Nicola Blechschmidt. I am using Caron Simply Soft in Ocean on size 3 and 7 needles. I am working on the second one currently so I hope to be able to finish it soon. The only other thing I have been working on is Hexipuffs for the Beekeepers Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits. I am not going to list all the yarns I am using for it as….it seems to keep growing 😉 Nothing wrong with that though! Perhaps I will SHOW you sometime as I am working on getting everything I need to turn this into a video log. Its just going to be a lot easier for me…a lot less time consuming 🙂 Anyway. Thats it for knitting.

For books, I did finish Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. It had such a cliffhanger! I hated that! -_- Oh well. Everyone has them 😉 I will more than likely get the other books because I really want to know what happens. I had also read Passion by Lauren Kate which is the 3rd book to the Fallen series. It wasn’t my favorite but, I still liked it. There is only 1 book left and I can’t wait to get to read it! And, that is all for books.

That’s really all I have for right now period O.o I guess until next time!

Happy reading and knitting!

Why!?

So! Even though I already have a blog on Blogger, I have decided to start another blog here. On Blogger, I started to just post mostly about whats happening in my life and well, no one outside my family and friends really want to hear about my boring life 😉 So, here I am! Making a blog that is strictly going to be for my crafty, book reading, nerdist ways!

So, to start off with will be my knitting updates. Though I haven’t really finished anything lately, I do have several projects on the needles. First is the ever popular “Beekeepers Quilt” by Tiny Owl Knits.

The picture is what have done so far. I LOVE this project and this is all I have been working on really for the last couple months. Which still hasn’t been much…. I had lost my knitting mojo there for a while but, its coming back. I have also started back to working on the “Blanket/Pillow” by Lion Brand that I am making for my hubby. Stockinette stitch is just sooooo boring. But, I want to get it done so I am going to push through. I had also started the “Jackson Square Afghan” by Red Heart but, I have kind of dropped the ball on that one…. For one thing, I am already working on a blanket, 2 technichly, and for another, its crochet and I really don’t like crocheting as much. Sooooo, yeah. The last thing I am working on is the “Soaring Hearts Mitts” by….well, unknown at the moment as their name is not on my downloaded pattern. Anyway, I have been wanting to make these for a long time and I finally got everything I needed to make them so, now I can’t wait to finish. I am getting ready to cast on (yes I know I have a lot already) for a scarf that I am going to knit with my first REAL yarn! None of it is accryllic (sp O.o)! Because of that, I couldn’t resist starting another project. I am in a knitting group that meets at a local coffee shop and one of the ladies there has been trying to get rid of yarn so she brought a trash bag (yes…a trash bag!) full of it! I was in high heaven and couldn’t believe she was getting rid of it. I was a total yarn hog and just brought home the rest of what no one else wanted. I still feel bad for it but, she was happy to get rid of it. Crazy 😉

This is what I came home with and my husband thought I was insane 🙂 I am still giddy and can’t wait to get started on my scarf! Which I am going to do right now as, I have no more to talk about at the moment…. So, until next time!
