All things Taxes

I am almost done with my portion of the taxes... How shall I celebrate?

I also started another Baby Bobbi Bear This time I am making it in white!  I have a small baby in mind for this bear too.  This pattern goes so quickly, I may have a picture of a stuffed armless bear by Thursday or Friday.

I am planning on going on the Yarn Shop Hop here on April 8th.  I am going to have to make a budget for yarn.  I know that I am going to want something.  What do you think $50 does not seem like much.  $100 seems like I am REALLY cheating on that diet.  April 8th is very close to my birthday, so I am going to spend some money on yarn. 

Now just a picture of a monster. She is at my desk.

Thursday @ Work??

I was so busy yesterday! I thought I might share my Citron progress.
Also I have socks that are almost done! Before the next package comes!  I rock! I roll!
I am hoping to get some scrapbooking done.  I am feeling a little guilty about not being done with that.
I may have to take a week to Spring Clean and scrap once it is warm enough for open windows... *sigh* it was 16 degrees this morning.

Look what I drew...

I bought some Copic Markers the other day and I am in love!  I sat down and drew cats and sheep and colors them in.  This one is on a post-it note.  I made a bunch into note cards the other day.  If you want one, just leave a comment and I will make sure you get one.  I am trying to think of other things I could draw.

On the knitting front I had to rip back a sweater I was making my son due to a counting mistake!  I will be working on it again when the yarn has dried.  I really wish it had counted correctly.  I have some club socks that are almost done.  I have decided to work on only the family sweaters until they are all done, so knitting for me is all club stuff :)

New Mitt

I was working on my socks for Club Loopy kit 1 and it did not fit over my foot :( So with some quick thinking I am making them fingerless mittens.

The first one is done

What do you think? Good Mod? It fits really well, and now I can make more things with the yarn (I am thinking monsters)

Wednesday @ Work

Okay so my cat Ziggy is not at work with me, but I thought I would show you Z on my Club Loopy bag. 

I have a sock with me today.  This is the second of these, I hope it goes fast because I have 3 socks on the needles and I cast-on 2 shawls that I am not working on. I really want to finish up the 4 sweaters that I am working too! ARGH! I really like having many projects on the needles, but I really need to start more small projects.  The sweater mojo is absent.  I have some sock mojo, but not much.

Draggin' Monday

Daylight Saving has done me in today.  I am so sleepy for sure.
I thought I would share one of my kit bags today:

And some progress made on my last kit from February :

My ball winder broke when I was winding a difficult hank of Dream in Color.  Sigh.

I am thinking of getting some Signature Needle Arts.  Just something to splurge on with some extra money this month.  Right now I want some dpns for socks and maybe add a circular needle for some shawls.

I missed Monday!

My monday was a whirl!  I cannot explain how busy it was.  So I am going to be blogging about some of the things I want....

1. To go on a knitting retreat this year
2. To meet some of the designers going to yarnover (Ravelry is to have a booth too)
3. THIS KIT! - Spillyjane Cupcake Mitts
4. To finish all my WiPs - as a new years resolution anything that I started before 2011 was going to be finished in 2011... Too bad I started a dress!!!

In fun news little miss is potty trained enough that she is starting Gymnastics tonight! Yipee! I am so excited.

Finished a Sweater!

My Ruby Root is done!  I did not like working with this yarn much.  It is plymoth fantasy.  It was okay at the start of the project, but I just got sick of it after a while.  So here it is.

Have a good weekend.

Wednesday @ Work

I have me some Rusted Root Mojo!  I really want to finish this sweater this week!  I got to try it on last night and just 3 inches to go and it will be perfect!!  What else...  I almost bought the DiC March yarn.  It is gorgeous and I am in love, but the yarn diet is holding strong.  Only 2 months to Yarnover!  I am going to save my birthday money and get some yarn there :)  Sounds like the Ravelry crew is going to be at the Marketplace.  I will be so very excited to meet all sorts of knitting idols.  I am in awe of those that make a living in the creative world.  It is a bit of a dream of mine.
