W.I.P. Wednesday: Nevermore

As I near closer to finishing I think I can share a little bit of my "secret" project I've been working on.

Here's a little taste of it.  As you can see I'm using purple instead of yellow and you can see its feet and some of its belly.  I don't wanna give too much away because the person its for reads my blog and I don't wanna ruin the big picture completely.

So what are you working on right now?

Yarn Love: Homespun Thick and Quick

As you may have realized by now I loooove Lion Brand Homespun.  Now they have it in thick and quick!  It's like they took something that was already awesome and made it super spectacularly awesome!! 

I got the Homespun from it was 50% off AND I got free shipping, woohoo!   By the time I realized it was on sale most of the colors were sold out, otherwise I would have got one of each to try.
The Angel Hair and Glow by Sensations I bought in store, also 50% off. :)  
As soon as I'm done with my special project I am sooo making something with these!

What are some of your favorite supplies?

W.I.P. Wednesday: w.i.p. inspiration

I don't have a w.i.p. this week.  I'm really trying to finish this project I've been working on.  But here are some great works in progress inspiration I found online. :)

Oh my gosh, how cute are these fingerless gloves gonna be?  

Knitting and a cup of coffee... Heaven :)

I am all about this top!  I love the shape of it and I love these colors together!

In My Bag

I'm doing one of those, what's in your bag, posts today.  
I like bags with a long strap so I can wear it cross body and it's even better when they have a few smaller pockets.

I keep some Aveeno in the pink leopard print pouch I made, along with my very favorite perfume in the world, Love Spell by Victoria Secret.  I also keep my Soft Lips chap stick, Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm, tweezers, and Ricola in that bag.  The Nintendo controller pouch I made holds my business cards and a there's a bunch of change in there too!  Then there's my cell phone, gum, wallet, pens, and Hello Kitty planner!

What are some must haves in your bag?

Organized Knitting

In order to keep all my projects organized I like to put them in different bags.  These are some of the recent ones I've got that I absolutely love!  The super hero one and one of the Hello Kitty ones I found at Five Below and the other Hello Kitty I found at Target.

I also got the Hello Kitty pencil case and sticky pad from Five Below.  I like to use the case for shorter needles and hooks.

How do you organize your crafts?

W.I.P. Wednesday

Today's w.i.p. is the wavy afghan I've been working on for at least the last six months.  And this is how far I've gotten... yeah.   
I have no idea why it's taking me so long the finish this darn thing!  I keep coming back to it every now and then to do one row or half a row.  
Will I ever complete this thing?

Do you have any long term works in progress?

See ya!

In Search Of: Nail polish

Ever fall in love with a product and then POOF, you can't find it in stores anymore?  Well I sure as hell have, more times than I'd like to count.
Today's I.S.O.  Is N.YC. nail polish.  I looooved wearing this color, what I have left is all dried up, boo. :(

I can only assume this color has been discontinued since I can't find it anywhere so now I'm in search of one as similar as possible.  And boy when I find it I am sooo stocking up! :)

What are you searching for?
