Thursday Purse-Day!!

Hello everyone!   How is everyone? 🙂   It’s that time again! it’s THURSDAY!

{011509} metal wallet{011509} look inside{011509} i thought it would be funny to id everything. :)

I love this wallet.  But I changed it out at Christmas b/c I felt i might run into problems w/ it at the airport since it is metal.  Then i just forgot to change it back.  I forgot I had money in it.  I forgot I had a check from the lady who i did all those xmas stocking for. whoooops.  I forgot my Jersey Mike’s sub club card.  I’ve missed out on like 5 stamps!!!!  GRR.  but it’s a great wallet. 🙂  It’s so cute and perfect, i’m kind of scared to use it risking scratching it all up.  Shush.  Don’t judge me!

How was everyone’s week?  Mine was great.  I met the newest member of the KFN clan…little Miss Evie.  She’s perfect.  I am so happy and excited for the Collins clan.   And despite funny things I have said in the past, i did want to kiss her all over her fat little face. 🙂  Hahah.  I didn’t, but i wanted to! (shush, Nanc!!)

I worked like a dog all week/weekend.  Not sure why there are so many babies being born RIGHT NOW…but it’s ok I guess.  And if I am busy, I get into less trouble.  tee hee.

So I’ve accomplished alot of knitting in the last week, which is good b/c I have alot of things I have to do in the next couple of months.

A nurse at work is about to pop and her baby shower is on Monday.  I found out about it 12 days prior. 🙂  So this is the set I knit/crochet for her little boy.

I’m happy w/ how the set came out. 🙂  I’m amazed at how fast i got it done.  I started the sweater on Sat at work…i finished it by the end of our knit meetup. 🙂  The hat and the booties both took just one day.   So yes.   I was scared I wouldn’t have it all done by the baby shower time.  But it’s done! yay!

And I got this email in my email yesterday inviting me to a baby shower.  i didn’t recognize the sender’s name.  and I really looked at it for a while to see who it was a shower for.  I did’nt recognize any of the names.  Then i started to get mad.  like “WTF?  am i just getting random shower invites??”  but then i recognized an ex-schoolmate’s name as the person the party is for.  whew.  So I started a new set for her baby boy. 🙂

I love top down sweaters.

It’s a cute top-down freebie from Ravelry.  It called for a garter stitch collar and cuffs.  blech!  so i changed it to seed stitch.  I think it’s a sharper stitch. 🙂  Garter sometimes looks frumpy to me.

I finished the gloves for my brother as well.

it didn’t take me that long to actually make the gloves.  I just put them down for a few days b/c the fingers were making me mad.  SO….on the right glove I did the fingers in the round even though the pattern calls for DK knitting.  i made some weird mitake, got frustrated and did it the way I knew how.  Then on the left glove, I did it DK style and I enjoyed it, but i felt the in-the-round way came out nicer. SO…i think i need to work on my DK skills.  hehehe.  I hope he likes them.  They are being hand delievered to him this weekend!

one last thing.  I got something in the mail yesterday that was totally awesome.

I rock harder w/ this new strap. :)

you guys have a good week while I rock out. 🙂

(ignore my clothes.  they are too big for me and making me look really bloated!)
