howdy howdy! 🙂
How is everyone doing today? 🙂 i’m having a pretty good week so far. i hope i didn’t just jinx myself…. hahaha
this is the bag of the week! 🙂
So i got this little bag at Comic Con. 🙂 I do love Domo-kun even though I never buy stuff w/ it on there. 🙂 But that might change…jk. i saw some really cute Domo things at Comic Con. 🙂 His constant state of hate/disgust/anger (maybe hunger?) cracks me up! 🙂 I’m not going to say what I paid for this little bag. i was ashamed when i was being rung up and i didn’t say NO! 🙂
What have I been working on? That crochet hat that I was working on last week? Yeahhh…there is something wrong w/ the pattern (so me thinks!). I’m kind of irritated with it and i go ok until i get to row 6. then its like downhill. And the specimen I had last week? yeahhh..that was waaay too small. So i think:
1) There is issues w/ the yarn required for the pattern. It requires fingering weight yarn…the yarn in the photo looks like at least DK weight.
2) I have issues w/ the hook size. the hook size required is very small. The end-result hat I got was too small for my get-well bunny. there is no way in hell it’s going to fit a newborn.
I have already emailed the person who wrote the pattern and she doesn’t have these issues. so i’m going to grumble and work on it and decide if i’m nuts, or if she is nuts. 🙂 hahaha.
But until then…i found out another one of my friends is pregnant! this is truly the year to procreate! everyone now! i guess 2008 is the year of romance. hahaha. So i’m trying to plan out the gifts for this year. i’m not attending any out-of-town baby showers (sorry folks)….but i am trying to send presents to the showers as they pop up. I know I don’t Have to…but i sort of want to. haahaha. i admit, i love that baby shower buzz when you give a great handmade gift. 🙂
So i have a few friends that have nerd husbands. Star Wars fans. Yoda hats/sweater sets must be made for these people. I got approval from my brudda about these. 🙂 He thinks they will be awesome. So that’s all the approval I need in this case. 🙂
On Sunday when i got to our Simpatico Sunday meetup, I started one hat as I arrived at 215p. By the time I left at 545p, i was finished with the first hat, seaming and all. it was kind of cool. I hadn’t planned that! I haven’t felted it yet b/c i need to make 3 more yoda hats, so i figured I would felt them all at once. 🙂
here are some before pics. i want to see how much they shrink!
What else…oh yeah! I got my confirmation from the State Fair of Texas about my shawl entry! They got my check and cashed it! They have given me a ticket so I can take my shawl up there to be judged. *Crossing fingers* So i’m dropping it off on Sat! 😀
