My newest project

This is my newest project.  I haven't decided if it will be a gift or if I will donate it, due to weight.  The pattern called for a much larger hook, which I did not have, and I still used the three strands that it called for.  It is a pretty solid blanket, but for a July baby, it may be too heavy.  Granted, it can still be used in the winter.

It is currently 22 inches by 28 inches, and I would like to get it to 36 inches.  It is in crochet

My latest Craft Project

After my first knit baby blanket did not turn out so well, I decided to create a second one.  I am only about 6 inches into it, and the baby is due in just over 70 days.  Last night I took a look to see if it is going well, or if it needs to be frogged, and well, it needs to be frogged.  I managed to turn the pattern around, which isn't that huge of a deal, and I see that the pattern is leaning a bit.

I am going to switch to a crochet blanket.  I have already found a nice simple pattern that I should be able to get done in a relatively short time.

Totally Slacking

I've been busy working on writing work and my Gold Canyon business, not to mention my day job, that I just keep forgetting to come post here!  Also doesn't help that I have been out two evenings this week, a union meeting and a birthday supper for my dad.

First, I must say happy 1 year Adoption Anniversary to Willow!  I can't imagine life without her!

I need to get to updating more on here, so if you come by here and don't see any recent posts, write a comment and let me know!

Kitty Love

This is an older picture, as you can tell by how little Rosco is.  It was approximately in July 2009.  I haven't caught them cuddling together for quite a while.


I create this blog, and promptly ignore it!  My apologies!

How about a picture of some cute kitty cats?

This is Rosco, he is the trouble maker of the house.  If you ever hear me complaining about one of the cats, it is likely him.  He is just over a year old, and I have had him since he was approximately 2.5 months old.

This is Willow.  She is the Queen of the house.  She is approximately 2.5 years old, and she was about a year and a half when I adopted her.  She is a sweet heart and a lap cat, and is starting to cuddle at bedtime.
