A tank top done. And monkey to.

I got a lot of things done over the holiday weekend.
It has been brought to my attention that I am not doing a very good job of blogging.
So in an effort to improve I am going to update this one with links...

I really enjoyed knitting this sweater.  It was fairly simple and quick.  I am washing it up for the first time, so I will let you know how the yarn held up after.

The pattern in from the twist collective online publication.  Twist Collective Shop Link and my project link... Ravelry Link

I am making good progress on my Little Black Dress and I hope to post some pictures when I am able to try it on.

Monkey... Almost

I am awaiting my eyes... Although I was told today where to find them in Hobby Lobby, so I may go look there now. Jerry is a great monkey and I would recommend Danger Crafts patterns.  Link to Jerry on Ravelry

I am liking this sock... I hope keep plotting along on all my WIPs.  I may have to cast on something this weekend, but this will not help the projects get done! Pattern Linky

So I have not posted

I keep forgetting to post.  As I have not taken any pictures of what I am working on lately.  I have left my phone at home a lot lately too, so less of a chance for me to just post whatever is happening.

I am looking forward to a Monster swap in the Danger Crafts group!  A color theme has been selected and I believe it is for "Full-sized" monsters. (no using sock yarn... rats!) 

My Loopy Swap 8 is going well. I am 40% done when my partner's item.  I have hopes that I will finish it/them early.  I am a bit at a loss for the rest of the package.  I will try not to stress over it.

I really wish I had a picture for you all... Maybe tomorrow.

Wendy KAL

I have decided to do the Wendy Mystery Shawlette KAL (Thanks Sara)

I have picked some NummaNumma Saucy

As you can see I have finished some rows of the chart! I cast-on with the bad info, so I have 287 (I did the bigger option) sts on the needles :)

So all of this effort is going into my 5K(stash-dash)... as my DH prepares for a Half-Marathon on foot.  Good luck to both of us, but I think mine is the bigger challenge.

Ride Ability


For more information about this great charity go to : www.rideability.org/

Work Work Work

I have been working a lot the past 24 hours and it is looking like I will have another 10 or so to go.

I do plan to get away a bit to have a 31 gifts party (tonight).  That info is here:

Be sure to shop before Monday. I want to close on Monday.

I have made some progress on my tank top, but now I am going to do a 5K stash down, I do not want to finish anything before that starts (wips count!)

I am going to make a separate post for a Ride Ability Fundraiser I am doing :)

84 and sunny

It is a hot one out today, but I will take it!

I went out for a walk at work.... I guess I am going to have to go inside.

Time to go shopping

I will be shopping today. I plan on buying clothes and spending a Yarnery GC.  I may end up with some sort of pattern book. 

I worked a first of many May critters from the Danger Crafts kal
