Baby projects

Last night I finished knitting my first cardigan. I finished it just in time for the baby shower this afternoon. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I did mess up the sleeves. I hope that it fits the coming little boy.


Longtime to type

It has been way too long since I've been on here sharing my creations. Here are a few items that I have made over the past few months.
I crocheted this hat out of some of my Dead Lady yarn to give to a friend. I put a pom pom on top of it and it ended up looking a whole lot like a pineapple. I hope that she likes it.

 I ventured into making clothing a little bit. I made this shrug. It is knitted with, what the author calls, Ostrich Plume lace. I downloaded the pattern onto my computer and the link is not bringing anything up on my computer anymore. I made it for myself to wear to work and now my company is changing its dress code. So I ended up giving it away.
During this past summer I started making a lot of different bracelets to see if I could sell them. I made a few different styles and colors. None of them have sold yet. I'm going to try venturing into different items this winter, like ties and purses.  
This is one of the "flowers" from a blanket that I am crocheting.  It is made up of different circles that, to me, look like different flowers. The link to the pattern is here.  It really isn't too hard to make so far. I just have knitters ADD.
 This is the latest project that I have made and completed. They are baby booties. They are NOT a sign of this to come in my life. I just wanted to see if I could make them. Now that I did. I think that I'll have it out of my system for a while.



Kara was being difficult with getting her picture taken
 so I caught her off guard. 
There has been a lot going on in my life recently. There was Christmas at my boyfriend's family, finishing up the Holiday season at work, an infestation at the house, and My boyfriend's installation at his different Masonic lodges (one is later this week). 

I was given a book from my younger sister for a Christmas present. It is 365A Daily Creativity Journal, Make Something Everyday and Change Your Life!
I am excited to use this book everyday for the year.

I decided that I wanted to get back into being creative again. I am very happy with this gift. I am going to be posting pictures of what I've made once a week. That way I can, if I have time, write other entries. In the book they talk about picking a motif that you are comfortable seeing a lot of, or something that you collect. Since I collect yarn and needles/hooks. I can 't really use that. I decided to use something that is really dear to me. My Cat! Kara is going to be my muse for this year. Everything that I am going to make will be cat inspired in some way. 

For the first day the book prompts the crafter to make something that will fit into the palm of your hand. I crocheted a green cat that is around three inches tall. I stuffed it with buttons since I don't have any stuffing where I live now.
