Ignore how awful I look and please draw your attention to the fabulous scarf that Nathan Novak of Nathannovak.net describes as "Halloween as F(bleeped da bleep)" and many and old lady has stopped me to say how lovely they think it is.
It contains two parts kid merino to one part Hip Hop yarn. Which you can see knit up creating a lovely contrast between the thick and thin yarns. This takes a set of size 17 needles and some tender loving care. Let it sit for a few days during frustrations and wallah in no time you can have one of these amazing scarves too. Pattern found on knitty.com.
read this part super fast
please note that there may be some allergic reactions for people sensitive to wools and animal fibers, needles are pointy and should be used for their specified purposes if not the eyes maybe lost and things impaled. This pattern may cause light headedness and lushness.Please knit safely.

My car is still broken down so I got dropped off moyo early at work and got to knit like crazy today. I am almost half finished with the little baby blanket I was working on. The pink one.
I went to Target and bought the onsies that I am going to embroder for the little babies that I need to gift. I am doing two for Nancy's baby boy Jo who was born weighing in at 8 Lbs. His poppa is proud his momma is proud and all the rest of us are excited to see him. The other two onsies will be divided one going to Denise's baby and the other to Brittany's baby. Hopefully they'll like them. I'll start on them tomorrow.
I also got some cute sweaters from Wlamart sounds like an oximoron but its not. Tomorrow I am going to totally doll it up. I love new clothing. I also got a cute new Jacket since my fav black jacket shrank. Dern dryers

I have been having a blast with embrodery lately. Its fast its easy its like drawing with a sewing needle. I love it. So this is the idea I am currently working on. Compostion note books that have been covered and embrodered. I am debating on selling some to a local record shop that would probubly be into them. We'll see. I want more feed back first.
