Pink and White on The Brain.

No, I am not pregnant. I finally finished this baby set that my stepmom asked me to make for her friends son. It's his first child, anyway there is a hat and a pair of booties that are not in the photo. I thought that she needed the set by the beginning of May, turns out she doesn't need it til June. After dealing with all of this pink and white I decided to punk out a bit, so I made this clutch last night.

It worked up rather quickly, took about 2 hours. I also added a pink lining on the inside. I think that it came out nice, of course my sister already has dibs. The pattern was in the latest edition of Stitch 'n' Bitch: The Happy Hooker, (which has bunches of great patterns). In other news my mom just had her 49th birthday yesterday. I'm going to try and take her to the Georgia Aquarium this or next weekend. You have to buy the tickets way in advance. Should be nice, I'll let you guys know.

Here Kitty-Kitty...

I finished making this Amineko Kitty awhile ago, his name is Patches. I kept forgeting to post a picture. I'm allergic to cats, so this is the only way I can be around one. I actually made him before I got the crochet pattern for the Amineko Cat. So I did him by sight. I think that he came out rather nice. So, I will see how my next one, by the pattern comes out. My mom surprised me and made me a bookmark with the picture of the monkeys on the front and back. That was so nice, no matter how irrating she is somethings, things like that is why I'll keep her. My stepmom ask me to made a bolero for her daughter and a baby blanket set for someone else. So I need to make a visit to the neighborhood yarn shop. She told me I need to look into getting a discount card for the amount of yarn I buy.

A Barrel Full Of Monkeys!

OKay.... so it's not a barrel. But, you get the jist. They are actually hanging from my yarn caddy. I tell you them darn monkeys get into everything. I have been on a monkey making spree, I had monkey parts everywhere. Now, I'm working on a Amineko Cat for someone. I bid on and won some Soft Touch Crochet Hooks on Ebay. Cool Right? Anyway, that should help out a lot.
