There are a bunch of cute things all over the internet to make for Halloween. I wanted to make my daughter something cool for a costume, but the holiday just sort of crept up on me. We have settled for Little Red Riding hood. We as in - my mother and I.
Wouldn't it figure that we find a free pattern that is easy to do and order all the yarn for it that someone else would post a way better looking hood, free and close to the same yarn. Why not do it?! Well, Provisional Cast On for one. That is a bitch to do!I have tried and tried and tried. Finally, I GOT IT! Or, so I thought. Unfortunately, I had to give up on that pattern.. Halloween is fastly approaching and I would like her to wear a completed hood, not some awesome half done thing. I was even looking forward to doing this cape! But my mom pointed something out. The sizes for Capuchon go up to 8 years! So maybe she can be Little Red Riding Hood another year. Or maybe I will just make the cape in a different color.
I really don't know. Lol.
So, after gauging, I am using two sizes bigger than the pattern calls for for the needles. I am sure it will be fine. I'm just going to town on this thing. It's a nice pretty red, and I think it will be... Okay.... Good enough for this year. I really need to plan ahead next year.
One of my friends that I used to work with at Safeway has recently moved to Reno. I miss her. She has decided to make me a rainbow hat. And I have decided to do a swap. She makes me the hat, I make her something in return. I tell you it is hard trying to come up with something!
I'm not going to post what I may find because there is a small chance that she is bored one day and stumbled upon this blog. Surprise ruined. No thank you. :P

Today is my mother's birthday. I can't believe she is a day past 30, but she is. Right now we are working on getting her house more... Homey. She's doing a home office in Orange, she wants Orange kitchen things... Long story short. She likes Orange. And when I say like, what I really mean is she loves Orange. I daresay she would have her car Orange if she could tolerate it.
So for her birthday I decided to make her a few nice dish cloths, but really she can use them for whatever she wants to. I made them in colors she would probably use in her bathroom, which is accented in Oranges and Pinks. I gave them to her early because today she works and I won't see her, but I will call and tell her "Happy Birthday!" probably when she gets off of work.
I guess I should have warned you, my pictures are amateur because I take them with my cell phone. I had lost my digital camera, but recently have found it.. Not that finding it will change the fact that I can't take pictures. LOL

This game comes out on 11.11.11, and a bunch of people can't wait for it, my husband and I being one of them. Well, honestly there is two of us. :P
Even on Rav there is a small cult following for this game, and a bunch of people like littlecaptina's Skyrim Mittens, and a bunch of people are digging the chart, yet no one has made anything with it. Honestly I haven't either.. So I guess I don't have much room to talk. :P

To you, I say a nice warm "Hello and Welcome to this Blog!"
I am not usually good at Blogging. My main blog is just a page for me to go and vent about people because I feel that no one really listens to what I have to say because what I have to say is complete bull and I gripe. And I gripe a lot. People need a break.
I have decided to divide my knitting and crochet work into it's own blog so I can continue rambling in the other. So, without further Au Deu. (Is that how that is spelled? LOL)
I will post my two patterns then I will continue.
