What's been going on????

Hi everyone!!

So If you read the last blog post I told you all that I am going to try to blog 2 to 3 times a week. That is what I am doing here today for you all! I am just going to tell you guys today what is going on in my crafting and in my teenage life.

This is a view from my Uncle's house,
and yes he does live out in the
middle of the dessert. 
I was in Arizona the past week, visiting my Uncle and my Grandma. I had a lot of fun with both of them, but some of the stuff was stressful...I'm not going to go into details you just had to be there to see why. I did take some really pretty pictures while I was there tho and I was thinking hmm maybe I can share them with you guys. Now when I was down there, it was around 19 degrees and snowing just a little. I love the cold by the way.

While I was in Arizona, I was knitting on a pair of socks. I only brought socks with me because they are easy and mindless if you have a easy stitch pattern. I am knitting the socks out of Fiber Charmer sock yarn in the Red Grapes colorway. I am knitting on a size US 2 needle. A great tip is to never really bring nothing to hard with you on a trip because you want to have a vacation and your fun project with you too. I have one so far done and the other one is still on the needles. Here is a picture of the socks.

If you are flowing the group on Ravelry, you all may know that we had a KAL in December. The KAL was the memory of Karrie aka Knitpurlgurl. Sadly, she passed away a few months ago and when I heard about it I was like omg we really need to do a KAL in the memory of her. The KAl did end January 3,2013 there was so many finished objects in my group also in others as well. I was gifted one of her patters by Judy aka Miazoe. She gifted me the pattern called the Crosswords in the Coffee house shawl. I knitted my shawl out of my own handspun and the handspun is a 100% Falkland on a size US 8 5.0MM needle. The fiber is kinda itchy but the finished object is very beautiful!!

As you all my know from watching the show I'v been working on a dress for myself. The dress pattern is from Joann fabrics and also the fabric is from Joann's as well. I am very impressed on how well  it is turning out. I was sewing last night and I got the zipper in and wow when you put in the zipper the whole dress comes together. Here is a picture of the dress on Lucy my mannequin.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this blog post! Stay tuned for more!



  1. The shawl and dress look great. I hope you had a great trip.

  2. Thanks Kristyn! I did have a great trip, its just some things got stressful because I was helping my grandma move in her new place. Besides that I had an awesome time, I was setting off fireworks with my uncle and having bonfires. I had a blast.

    Thanks for taking time for reading the blog!
