Oh yeah, one more picture...

This isn't the greatest picture, but it is a baby blanket and 2 Mason Dixon bibs. Peaches & Creme cotton - powder puff, size 7 needles. I did a basic bib and a burpcloth pattern bib, and the blanket is garter and stockinette squares with a 4" seed stitch border. The blanket took forever! It was killing me by the time it was done.

Working on making some Christmas gifts, I will post pictures of those as I finish them. Yeah!

Meet Simone

This is Simone - she's our newest family member. She's a hypo tangerine leopard gecko. She is 2 years old and very friendly.

Please excuse the ugly lightswitch in this picture. It was hard getting her against something white to show off her color (those who know me well know I have hardly any plain white walls).

Finished Projects Pics

First up is J in his hat I just finished. Cascade 220 - not sure of the color, it's a black and blue mix, basic ribbed hat pattern on size 8 dpns. Awwww, how cute!

Next up is 3 Mason Dixon ball band dishcloths. Sugar & Cream cotton, size 7 straights. I love the bright color combos - they currently reside in my kitchen.

Finally, it's me in a neckace I knitted from 32 gauge wire and beads. Silver beading wire and a bunch of random glass beads. I like how it turned out, but next time I will probably use a thicker wire. This just bends like crazy while I am wearing it.

More pictures to come later!

A long time...

Wow, it has really been a long time since I posted anything. A lot has been going on.
A short list...
1. I quit roller derby - too much drama, all drama all the time. I just wasn't having fun.
2. I have been knitting like a fiend. Lots of projects. I will post pics shortly.
3. I quit my crappy job and went back to temping. It's good for me, I don't get as bored.
4. I did a cool project over the weekend and I am going to submit it to
5. J and I have a new family member - she's a Hypo Orange Leopard Gecko - her name is Simone and she's georgeous. I will post pics of her soon as well.
I have been taking so many pictures of projects lately. I can't wait to post them! Yeah!
