This tote bage is just the coolest! I put it right to use a took Jakey D. to the dog park today. It was perfect for a skein of yarn , a hook , and a sissors AND a leash and keys! Plus all the cool stationary stuff! I love it!
This is the scarf.... isn't it beautiful? I adore it and was bummed that it was over 80 degrees today and was too hot to wear it!
Coffee, Tea, AND Cocoa!!! WOW! Bath fizzies, lip blam, sticky notes, mini note cards!

My partner name was Athba and she is due to have a baby in March. It was fun to recieve yarn from Kuwait and the shawl that my cat is sitting on is beautiful! I love swaps!
I am going to be hosting a class at my apartment building on making these... it will be the first class I have done at our building. I hope I have a few people sign up. It will be lots of fun!
Here is a pic of some coasters I made for valentines day... and then forgot to use!?! LOL!
I had to share this pic of Ariel! Isn't she sweet? She looks like a library cat!I have been working on 2 new afghans... a Babette inspired one and a Kitties in a row one. Why Do I do this to myself? I had the Babett inspired one floating in my brain for a long time and I grafted it out.... Geez I only have to make about 400 Grannies!!! But I am half way done with the squares... can't wait to start sewing it togather! Then while browsing around on crochetville there was a CAL for the "Kitties in a Row" I really did try to resist .... but I have the first repeat done on it already! I wonder how long it will take me to finish both? I even promised myself that I would not join any more swaps til I finish at least one of them! LOL!

I haven't posted any pic of my recent projects lately... so here is one I am particularly proud of... I made socks! I love knitted socks... but I can't knit! So.... I thought I would try crocheted ones! I think they turned odut terrific! I used 100% wool sock yarn that I purchased on ebay. The colors are great! Not bad if I say so myself!
Anyway... Then on Christmas day we went to Jason's (my husband) Grandmother's house... I was very spoiled there! They are Christmas crazy! But they know I love to crochet and his mother gave me lots and lots of yarn she had gotten on e-bay.... a full set of bamboo crochet hooks.... a yarn tote ( the kind that has holes for your yarn to go through...And tons of other stuff.... you can tell what gifts I really loved!
We did Christmas with my mom in January (cause she was at my sis's house over Christmas) ... And We had lots of fun there too! I got my jammies from my mom.... She gives me new "flannies" every year and this year They were fuzzy ones!
Since then we have had several snow storms and lots of COLD weather! I have been crocheting alot. I crocheted my first pair of socks! And they turned out great! I made some cool little valentines coasters, and now I am working on a really cool new afghan...More about that later... But I do promise it is going to be "groovalicious"!
I found this wild pic on the net today.... isn't it .... well..... trippy?
Well that's all I have for new news for tonite! Later Taters!
