How has the weekend been going for you? I hope good :) So, because it has been a couple months before I could post anything about my summer, I thought I might show you some pictures of my favorite yarns so far! :D
My goodness it has been a long time since I have jumped on blogger to write. I feel like time flew by between work and school starting. I guess my priorities switched a little for the last couple of months :( But I'm back! And I have so many different things to show you!
Over the last few months I have managed to whip up a teddy bear for the cutest little one year old :)
Isn't it darling :) It was not too hard to make and was a joy to see come together.
I also mananged to work on a birthday present for a while (still not finished). The strangling vines scarf made out of knitpicks stroll tonal blue-violet sock yarn. It is coming out beautifully. Hopefully I can have it done soon :)
I also managed to revisit the water bottle holder I made
a while ago. This one was another birthday success :)
Last but not least I whipped up a Giant's beanie for my Kevin's mom :) I know she will love it!
Any Giant's fan would love to have this for their birthday :)
I bought this beautiful yarn at Adelas Yarn in Castro Valley, Ca. I fell in love with the colors and how soft the yarn felt against my skin :)
The colors reminded me of the beach, mainly because of the varying colors of blue/aqua to a light sandy color that reminded me of the sand and ocean colliding, all into one skein of yarn :) The lady there was also very kind to wind it up for me :) I took it home and immediately started taking photos! I have no immediate plans for this yarn, but it is sitting right next to me in my chair and waiting for inspiration to hit :)
I have exciting news! I have just finished my very first knitted project! I made up my own little pattern for a birthday present to Kevin's poppy :) I picked out a yarn that was his favorite color and went to work learning not only how to knit with sock yarn and circulars, but at the same time how to knit in the round and Kitchener stitch. It was definitively worth the time and difficulty to see his face light up!
It turned out fantastic :)
I hope everyone has had a wonderful last few weeks :) I will be posting soon about a beautiful luxury yarn that I bought and photographed, but that will have to wait until next time!
I hope everyone has had a good couple of weeks! I am so glad to have school done with and only work and knitting to focus on :D Lucky for all of you, I am learning at a fairly fast pace. Wahoo! I can't disclose anything about this project until Friday, but here is a sneak peak at my latest project!
I just wanted to pop by and show you my lovely little scarf that I fastened in the back to make a wonderful little cowl :D I actually made this scarf a very very long time ago, when I was first learning how to crochet. I came across it when I was moving and felt the need to use the perfectly sized scarf as a cowl. It has been pretty cold the last couple of days... odd that it is May and we are experiencing weather similar to February. Oh well, it gave me an excuse to wear this! :D
Next week is finals week for me, so after the next week, I will be free to enjoy the summer with lots of knitting and crochet!
I hope that everyone is happy and healthy :D I know I am! I passed day 90 of P90x the other day, and I am now officially a graduate of the program! :D I am so happy with my results and I really want to thank everyone supporting me over the last couple of months. Without your support, I might not have been as motivated to finish. I also have to thank my Kevin for doing the program with my for all 90 days :D Now, for the moment we all have been waiting for.... my video!!!!! Click here to watch :D
I hope you enjoyed seeing my results as much as I did! If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask me. If you want to see Kevin's results, you can find it here. His results are pretty incredible :D We have started a second round of P90x yesterday, so I am back to day 2, but I am doing a different version this time around, so we will see how that goes :)
Oh and I am still working on the my knitting, but that will be saved for another post ;)
