Brother’s Old T-shirt revisited


So, it’s atleast 87 degrees outside and I desided to stay inside and do some housecleaning and sewing.

I didn’t realize that my housecleaning would lead to my sewing!

I found one of my brother’s old t-shirts(he said it was okay) and a few snips, a bandanna from camp and a bit of little sewing, and suddenly I had a cute tank top!

Anyone know how to turn photos upright?

Summer’s Twilight Shawl

Ravelry, Uncategorized

A great first lace shawl, the lace pattern is easy to memorize and all that is required is to knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog and ssk. This top-down airy shawl is the perfect quick-to-make wrap to wear to Prom (which is what I made it for), an evening out or anytime a little elegance is needed. Make it in a sock yarn and you could wear it with jeans and a t-shirt! Tie the ends behind your back and you have a shrug-like garment. The gauze like mohair stripes cascade over your back like a waterfall, flowing smoothly into the frothy gently ruffled edge.Want it bigger? Just add more yarn and keep on going in the body pattern before adding the ruffle.back

Why Twitter?


I’ve been super busy with work, school, Church, guitar, knitting and crocheting.
It’s amazing how busy one can get!
I went to Hawaii in December but I still haven’t uploaded my photos yet.
We finally got our computer working but I’m not even sure where the card reader is.
So, what’s up with Twitter?
It seams like everyone is getting one and I can even keep up with blogging!
Anyone have an opinion?

Anyways, I didn’t totally mess up the dress and I just need to sew on the straps and it will hopefully be ready to go!

I’ll try to update tomorrow.
I’m tired.

FO: Noro headband

Project made from pattern, Uncategorized

I finished the Noro headband the day after I started, then I had to take photos and then I kinda forgot about posting it!

Well, I remembered that I forgot so, it’s all good. 😉

The photo below shows the colors very welll, unfortunately I’m not smiling.

I think I’m one of those people that unless it’s in a fashion magazine, the person should be smiling.

I mean, who wouldn’t be happy to have a handknitted Noro headband on their head?

Who wouldn’t want a zillion photos taken of you and only two or three turned out worthy enough not to delete because the colors were off?

I will blame the camera, we used the point and shoot, it probably went bonkers with all the fabulous colors of Noro.

I believe the camera’s train of thought went something like this:

“What!?! Colors!?! You expect me to take a multi colored photo? Wait, Noro? How can I get the real colors of Noro!?! Heehee, I know what I’ll do, I won’t let a smiling photo get though, I get the colors right but she won’t be smiling! HehehahahaHAHAHAAAHAAAAAAAA!”

Or maybe I had the wrong lighting, but let’s blame the camera! 😉

Noro Headband Neckwarmer head shotNoro Headband Neckwarmer neck shot

Pattern: Easy Neckwarmer Headband

Yarn: 1 skein of Noro Kureyon in #170 Blue/purple

It was a very fun and quick knit!

I carry one of these neckwarmers in my purse all the time if I’m not already wearing it!

When you wear a neckwarmer you retain more heat then the average scarf(since it’s covering more of your neck) and since you are not losing heat through your neck, your whole body will be warmer.

If you are jogging and you still want to wear your ponytail, just slip the neckwarmer on your head as a headband.
