First off….fantastic news!!
Our friends NanC and Matty have a new baby girl! WHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! i kept hoping baby would be a girl, but I had this weird gut feeling she was going to be a HE. 🙂 But I got the call around 4p that baby was born around 3p and everyone is healthy and happy and looking fantastic. 🙂 I’m so happy for them!! I can’t wait to meet the new member of the family!
Ok so it is Thursday…here is this week’s bag. 🙂
I got this gem at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. 🙂 It was an impulse buy (surprise surprise). but i think it’s cute! 🙂 i haven’t been using the yarn feeder b/c …well, i don’t know why. I just haven’t. 🙂 It’s a great portable little bag though!
So last week I complained about my brother’s gloves. I ended up just using a whole diff. pattern which worked out better for these gloves i think. I think the color is fantastic. 🙂 and this yarn is so spongy!!
I do have an FO to show off!

I love these mitts. They were super easy to do. The pattern was written by our own Botgurl. Super quick and well written. 🙂 I love the yarn too!! OMG! I want to do a pair of socks out of the remainder. do i have enough? yes. I bought 2 skeins and they come fully loaded w/ lots of yardage. hahaha. So I should be able to get a pair of socks out of them too. 🙂 I bought some in a purply color for myself too!
On Sunday, our group had a seaming party for NanC’s bebeh’s blanket. 🙂 it didn’t take too long I thought. I mean, it could have taken WAY longer. We had a warm home, tons of good SOUP, rolls, and good company and a crapload of crochet hooks. 🙂 In the end we have a seamed blanket. 🙂 it’s so beautiful
This was a wonderful collaborative effort by everyone. 🙂 The yarn we used was Berroco Comfort Worsted Weight. My squares were too small and two of my squares were the wrong color. I’m an idiot. Apparnetly i heard the requirements. Hell, I was one of the ppl that was calculating what size they should be. But we had some adjustments over the period of time we decided to do this and I got mixed up on what the size should have been.. Whoops. 🙂 We all just picked squares to make on our own. I chose to do all seed stitch squares b/c i’m hilarious like that. hahahah
Yesterday I decided to paint my master bathroom b/c i was finally sick of looking at the forest green color for the last 8 months. for a few months now, i’ve been debating about what color to paint this tiny bathroom. Pink? purple? some cheery yellow? Blue? what the hell??? I finally decided the other day a neutral taupe color would be perfect. I figured that would work no matter what kind of fabrics are hung as the shower curtain, it will almost always match. decision made. paint and supplies purchased. What was I thinking? i don’t know how to prep a room for painting. I tried. i’m just an idiot. 🙂 I don’t cut very well apparently. My ladder is a short 3-4 step ladder. I am short. The extension I bought for my roller is only a 1-2 foot roller. And i could reach the top, but i kept bumping paint on the ceiling. im’ going to have to repaint the areas i bumped w/ the paint. GRR. The color is better, but I can still just seen the green in my head for some reason. And I need to paint the moldings white/beige too before I get the full effect. So …my progress so far. You know it’s really hard to get pics of a room w/ a 50mm lens. 🙂 hahahaha. i was too lazy to get my point and shoot out.
don’t judge my messyness. i’m a messy painter apparently.
Ok I think that’s it for now! hahaha. peace out! 🙂 it’s almost 4a and i haven’t gone to bed yet! WHOOPS!
