I have been such a bad blogger! I have reasons, though, and if you want to see what I knit, you have to read (or skim) through them first. haha
This sounds familiar, I know I read something just like it on someone else's blog recently. You know when you think a person is your friend and then you find out they are just backstabbing liars? Yeah, that. I've been feeling a little whiny and sorry for myself. You can usually tell if I'm not feeling like my normal self if I'm wearing my glasses. That either means it's really early and I haven't put my contacts in, or I don't feel well, so I'm not going to bother. My friend Carrie talks about putting good out into the world. I try to think of that every time I feel mean toward this person. I want a good, peaceful world, so I'm trying to be nice. Small town living, small minds. I know it doesn't have to be this way! Urgh!!
Ahhh, I feel a little better now. At the very least, I know one person who is always on my side. My best friend, Lisa. And if she thought of being on 'the other side' I'd just remind her of the cool things I knit for her. :D Like this wonderful hat I did for the Get Stitchy! Stitch for Chicks along. And yes, I did say wonderful! The pattern is fun, and quick. I have been getting tons of compliments on my green hat, and when I say "Thank you, it was so fun to knit." I love the looks non-knitters give me when they say "You made that!? It's so great!" hehe. See, commentslut.
In the last picture on the right, you can see the matching bracelet my LD made for her Aunt Wheeza. I'm going to have to put that kid to work and put some of those on my shop. **Just joking, child labor law people!
I am going to post the stats and a link to the pattern on my other blog. You can see what yarn I used and all of that there. Let me just tell ya, I used Sugar & Cream, and that must make this the least expensive hat in the world, but it looks great! I just might have to make me an orange one. My kids all want one, too. At least I could afford to make three more with the cotton.
Now, I have to go play nurse. I hate it when my kids are sick! LD is home coughing her poor little head off. She was not happy with me this morning when I told her she was not going to school. She doesn't have a fever, but she was hacking uncontrollably. She looked miserable, too. I know she wouldn't be learning much, if I sent her, and here she can breathe some steam from the vaporizer and hopefully get rid of that wheeze. She gets sick so quickly ~ overnight, and hopefully it will be gone as quickly, or off to the doctor we'll have to go.
Hope everyone is doing and feeling well. I think before I make the lil' convalescent some more tea, I'll go update the FO blog. Have a great one!
