Another TokiDoki fake.  muahahah!!   Isn’t it cute?  I love the cactus person.  I don’t know why. 🙂

So our first yarn garage sale was pretty good.  I think I should have posted more info around so more people knew about it, but we had a good turn out.  I sold almost half of what I brought.  I made more than I imagined I would.  I still have more to sell though.  🙂 So we’ll see how this goes.   but here are some pics of that day.  We were lucky it was a bEAUTIFUL day.  Janice called me at 708a to wake me up and it was so cold.  But it warmed up quickly to be a nice day.  We had alot of fun just sitting and clucking like a bunch of hens like we have in the past.  🙂

So this weekend I lost my mind and ran out and bought a PS3 b/c there was a deal.  What else did I get to go with it?  Guitar Hero finally.  I played alot of GH over the last 3 days.  hahahaha.  I was starting to get carpal tunnel hands.  But there was a good deal, it’s got Blu-Ray in it and it’s now my media center.  it’s f’ing awesome.  I don’t know why I fought buying one for so long. 🙂 I also ran out and got Kung Fu Panda on Blu-Ray.  it’s so beautiful. 🙂

Yesterday was a day off for me, so I woke up, played 3 hours of GH, decided I had too much.  Then I, on a whim, decided to make a hat.  I knit the hat while on the exercise bike, during my mani/pedi.  I finished it in like 3 hours.  Then i decided to replay some GH songs….i played for another 3 hours.  Long day for me. hAHAHAH!

Anyway….here is the hat!!

I LOVe the decreases on it.  That was the most exciting part of the hat….knitting it up to see how it would come out.  🙂  It looks fantastic on MY head. 🙂 hahahah!

So i got so excited with above hat…i was going to knit another one in a variegated pink color for me as well.  Then for some reason…something struck me and I thought ZEEBEE.  I haven’t made a ZEEBEE in a while and i thought it would look really cute in the pink yarn I had in my hands.  i was right.  Too bad i didn’t make it the right size.

{zeebee2} this was supposed to be FOR ME!! {zeebee2} Isn't it better on her?  it's too small for her even!{zeebee2} Aww.....whatcha thinkin' about, little one?{zeebee2}  she's so cute I could eat her up!!

(Thanks to Tierney for being my model)

So yeah…i remember after i finished this that the first time I made one of these, the length of my head isn’t suppoesd to be divided by 2 like the pattern says.  So it’s a wee bit too small for my head…or for Tierney’s head even.  and she’s 1 yrs old.  isn’t she cute?  dont you just want to squish her??? 🙂

I’ve also made progress on the Xmas stockings.  I’ve mostly finished 2.  why mostly?  I still need angora for the beards.  and the first stocking is missing the beard totally. 🙂  whoops. don’t look at it.  it’s ashamed of itself.

{2 stock} 2 stockings mostly done {2 stock} dont ask me where the santa beard on the left is.  I haven't found it yet{2 stock} again...don't ask. :)

So i have one more stocking to go!

What else am I working on?  I have alot of things i want to do…but I started this tonight.  It’s a crochet shawl.  It’s super easy, but getting started was a big pain in the butt.
