My son was my model and as you see he didn't do the best. he was so worried about being seen outside in a shawl. :-O I still need to add fringes. I can not stand all the cutting of the strings, but I'm sure it will look better with them.
The start of my Nan Bedsoxs. Using a very old yarn, Caron Dazzle Air, it's called Aparkling Pinks. It's very very soft and I'm sure its going to feel great on my feet if I ever get them done. Ok now, Yvette I need a push. :-) lol

My youngest son, age 11 graduating from the 5th grade (Elementary School). I'm so very proud of him. He is growing up so fast. The cake was delicious, we always purchase them from the Giant.

Lately I have been knitting and crocheting things that look like a challenge as you can see I have been successsful. I have to find the link to this pattern and post. I made this one night while sitting up chatting with my knit/crochet buddy Yvette. We are both night owls and stay up at night creating beautiful things for our family and friends.

That's me all bundled up in my new granny square hat and scarf set. This was very easy to make. I made both in about 3 hour to 4 hours while watching a movie. The hat fits my nogget perfectly. I actully extended my chain so my scarf could be longer as it gets very cold here in DC. Surprisingly, with the holes, the scarf and hat are very warm.

Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful! Here is the shawl I made for my mom. I think it was maybe 3 days to get it done. Used Red Heart Super Saver yarn to create this beauty. It's red with a lilac edging, not a color I would have chose, but this what she wanted. I have create another one in Redskin colors, it is gorgeous. Currently looking for a model so I can put up pictures of that creation as well. here is the link if you are interested. The pattern called for a size H needle, I used a K and for the redskin I used an N. Both look great!

The image is a tad dark. My first try at a crochet cable hat. I must say it turned out great!! If it gets very cold where you live then you should really try making one of these or get some one to make one for you. (for a small fee of course if you can not make yourself) A lot of work went into this creation, but well worth it.
Take a stab at it!!

Knitted this diaper cover for my cousin. She had the baby on October 9, 2009. A little girl named Kennedy. Maybe I will have a picture to post and soon as I get to meet the little one. I used Merino Wool for this diaper cover. I love the color. I had the opportunity to knit this in a class with the actual designer, Marie Connolly at StitchDC. I had a great time made some new freinds.
