i almost went to bed just now before I realized it was Thursday (early am) and i have stuff to post 🙂 How did everyone’s week go? I had a pretty ok week. I had to baby sit a couple of cats for an entire week. I miss having a cat around here, but then i DO NOT miss it. these kittens were really scared of me for the first 3 days. Then on the 4th day, the girl kitty was all WHATEVER!! and this was HER house…not mine. she was all over me constantly! and whenever i was knitting? oh forget it. she was constantly grabbing for yarn, projects and scratching the hell out of me in the process. Then the boy kitty decided on the 5th day that he was my bff and would NOT leave me alone. 🙂 very sweet…but i forgot how allergic I am to these cats. i was itching like crazy and I still am, even though they left early afternoon on Weds. the itching will remind me to watch my mouth before I agree to baby sit cats again. 🙂
I do have a “bag” this week. Sorry, I again stole the pics off the manufacturer website. Their pics rock! Who am I to compete?
I got myself a color nook the other day after swearing up and down I wouldn’t do it. but there was a deal on ebay that i could not resist. so just stamp “SUCKA” on my forehead. I also turned it into a really cool Android Tablet. Holla! I’m so cool. hahahaahah. jk. I love this case b/c you can stand it up like an easel. this proves to be nice when i’m sitting at my desk and i’m actually reading something while chatting w/ my friend on IM.
So the gifts I finished up last week were received by their intendeds yesterday. I got txt’s from both saying big thank you’s. 🙂 this makes me so happies. 😀 My friend Joseph said “oh I can tell your skills have improved.” SAY WHAT? The slippers i gave to him were almost exactly like the ones I gave to him before? WTF is he talking about? improved…..p-shah!
Then the girl that got the giraffe had a bit of envy over the sparkly unicorn. oops. 🙂 But she also told her mom “Wow. Auntie Jen is a good knitter.” hAhAHAHAhA! funny girl! The little one didn’t get to see her unicorn yet. So i’m waiting to see her response. …
i was asked to make another unicorn for my friend’s new baby boy, but i said “UNICORN? for a BOY???” she asked me to just pick something and make it…whatever i see fit. So I decided on a puppy dog! i searched on Ravelry and found this cute little puppy pattern and i thought it was hilarious.

Some of you might ask why I picked these colors. Some people already asked me that question. Honestly..it’s what I had laying around that i felt was washable for mommy. I didn’t expect him to come out so GREEN. I call him Stumpy b/c his legs are so stumpy 🙂 and yeah his arm are supposed to stick out like that. I used safety eyes and nose instead of buttons since the doll is going to a baby. so my little puppy looks a little different from the one in the pattern. and as usual w/ amigurumi, i used smaller yarn and hook than the pattern called for.

What is this? It’s a Yoda baby Bottle Cozy. I found it ages ago and wanted it make it. I’m finally mailing off that Yoda sweater i did months ago for a baby that might be too big for it now. Sigh. But im mailing it off tomorrow! And i’m mailing it off w/ this bottle cozy for laughs. My bottle cozy isn’t as cute as the one in the example. 🙁 i’m not 1000% pleased. I think it’s where i put his eyes. sigh.
Ok folks. that’s all I’ve got for now. 🙂 have a great weekend!!
