I love to knit. Its a good hobby. Its fun. And I love yarn. So its the perfect for me ;)

Okay... I found the cutest knitting patterns in the world.

Here is one called Costal Knits (I really want that book!!) The beret is soooo cute!!

And I found this adorable hat too! The best part? Its free!!

These are some really great owl gloves! I've made two pairs of them! Here are Rose's pair:


And, you know, since you just have a knitting post without something crocheted thrown in... ;) Heres an adorable baby hat! (its free too!!!) (can you tell I like owls?)

Can you tell that I love free patterns?? Most of the stuff I'm putting on here is free, by the way :)

This shrug... Oh my goodness!!

I really want to make this. Now.

And... Here is a link to the patterns I wrote!  I love to write patterns. Its fun, because then I get to make things that I can't find on ravelry! Its so much fun!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, you all! Hope you all have turkey filled day of blessings and thankfulness! :)

And now, I'm going to show you all something I've been working on..

Cupcake cards!!

These are so much fun to make ^_^

My dad bought me some note cards (because I like to make them) and we accidental got the wrong kind (it stretches out the picture to much and makes it look... weird) so, since they weren't really usable  for printing on... I drew on them! :D

What do you think?

I've Been Awarded the...

Stylish Blogger Award!

So, I think now I tell you 7 random facts about myself... So here it goes.

1) I don't have my own camera. I use my moms.
2) I learned to knit when I was 7, I think
3)I'm obsessed with Doctor Who
4) I don't like to crochet, yet it is very handy when knitting.
5) I know how to do an Irish colonial dance. Its fun.
6) Some of my best friends are bloggers. Oh yeah, I'm talking about you Trina and Julia :D
7) My favorite singer ever is Micheal Buble, and I hate newer pop songs.

So there is that. Now you know 7 pretty much pointless things about me ;) haha

and the 5 bloggers I'm passing this award unto is...

Thanks Britt for awarding me! This was fun!! :)

Also, to all the Whovians out there... Happy Doctor Who Day!!!

Yarn Along! 11/23/11

{Sorry about the blurry-ness its been raining, and its really cloudy :/}

So, I'm going to be starting doing this thing that my mom told me about, called Yarn Along, over at Small Things. So here it is...

What I'm making is a hat {Possibly for someone for christmas}. Its {hopefully} going to be a beret, but I think with the cable/lace pattern, it'll probably turn out to be a slouchy hat :) Possibly a new pattern to come along with it? What do you think :)

What I'm reading is the grusome tale of Frankenstein, by Mary Shelly. Its pretty good. But the monster sounds disgusting. Haha

So, why don't all you crafters go check out Yarn along!
