Hearts ♥ Garland



I enjoyed knitting the pumpkin garland so much I decided I wanted to make another garland and since Valentine's day is coming up I chose to make one with hearts.


I used raspberry pink yarn (Red Heart Super Saver) with a red and metallic mixed yarn (Red Heart Holiday yarn). 




If you want to make a Valentine's day garland for yourself or someone else, there is a great pattern at katydidandkid.com.  Also check out Love Rocks pattern and Valentine Heart Rings pattern for cute heart accessories!

Happy knitting!

Snow Day!


We got lots of snow and Coffee had a great time playing in it and eating it :)


I have lots of knitting to do today.  This is a scarf I'm knitting with tan acrylic yarn and a mohair yarn.  It's in seed stitch and I will add fringe at the ends when I'm done.


This is a shawl I've been working on for a while and still have a long way to go.  It's also in seed stitch with soft pink acrylic yarn.  I'm going to add tassels to the ends when I'm done.

That's all for now, see ya!

Plant Update

(Before)
Just a quick update on how my plants are doing.  I got these plants back in August and they have grown a bit. 


The Jade plant has been giving me the most trouble, its leaves get soft if I don't water it correctly but I think I'm getting it on track now.


This one, I'm not sure what it's called, has grown much taller and is my favorite.  It's very easy to take care of.


I don't think the cactus grew at all, but it isn't dieing either soooo, yay? :p

I was thinking of decorating the pots, I'm not sure yet what I want to do but here is a cute idea!  Chalkboard Flower Pot from http://sewhipmama.wordpress.com/

See ya later!

Scrap Yarn Squares


I've been using the scrap yarn from my super bulky yarn projects to make squares.  But I'm not sure what I'm going to make with them yet.  Maybe a bag or a pillow or perhaps I'll save them up for a while and make a blanket since this yarn is so soft and comfy!


Coffee got a haircut the other day.  Awww, he looks so little! :)  He's been behaving better lately, not biting that much.  But when he does its more playful rather than vicious and mean like it was before.

See ya!

I ♥ mail

First post for 2011! I hope everyone had a great New Years!  I am officially making a resolution to blog more... Well, I'll do my best, lol :P


I love getting packages in the mail.  Yesterday I was happy to see my order from Jinx came along with the serger needles I ordered.  And just a few days ago I received in lightening fast speed the zippers I ordered from Zipit on Etsy and a cute zipper pull gift.  The new official shop for all my zipper needs!


I ordered this great World of Warcraft t-shirt from Jinx and they sent me free stickers too! ♥


While getting ready for Valentine's Day I made these cute pink coin purses.  They're knit out of plastic bags and are rose scented!  Also, be sure to visit Kim J Creations for beautiful Valentine's Day jewelry!

See ya later!
