It's been a long time. Why don't you have a slice of pie. Here is a little something special that I made my sister. She loves odd things. She has been home for a few weeks and she wears it everyday. I have been quite busy. I started a Etsy page, but have yet to put anything on it. Knitting has also become a challenge to me, I think that I am finally getting the hang of it. My current W.I.P is a scarf in the purl stitch (the only stitch that I know at the moment). I'm also getting prepared (& nervous) for a Crochet Workshop that I shall be teaching in the beginning of February. If anyone has any tips to help me with me class, please let me know.
Wanna a bite?

Okay, so I think that by now it is obvious that I am addicted to crochet, hence my yarn obssesions. Anyway, now I am addicted to youtube. No the two do not necessarily mesh together. So, imagine my amazment when found some spanish yarn commercials.
Guys, let me know which one you like the most... I think it was very cute.
I got it to work, Thanks Debb

Look at the treat that I had waiting on me when I got home. I'm only mad that I am getting to it so late, because I can't start on anything. Sorry for the bad pic, still using my camera phone. I so high tech, ya'll.
This is a book by Beth Doherty of "Gourmet Amigurumi", containing all original amigurumi patterns by Doherty. Now, I read a couple things last year that amigurumi means "a stuff toy, stitched (crocheted or knited) in a round". In her book Beth gives a detailed break down of the meaning of amigurumi. Here it is as she puts it in her intro--(not word for word)
"Amigurumi-pronounced ah-mee-guh-ROO-mee, Ami is short for the word Amimie meaning "stitch" in Japanese. Gurumi is a hyphenation of the Japanese word Nuigurumi, meaning "stuffed doll or toy". Anyway, if I have to pick a favorite(s), it somewhere between Strawbeary, Beat Nik Kitty (Hep Cat), and Fawn. Enough with the book report , just go out and pick up a copy of this book.

It's been awhile. A lot of things have been going on. Anyway,here is what I'd look like if i were a simpson's character. I haven't seen the movie, my little sister simpsonized me. She loves "The Simpsons", can we all say fanatic. She totally got me down packed, I'm always somewhere, arms folded with a smirk on my face (the librarian's stare, that's what she calls that look). Well there is not really anything going on in my life right now, so that's all folks.

Want a piece of cake...
Actually it's a cupcake purse. It is the cutest thing. I just got the pattern in the mail yesterday in the mail. I bought it at Etsy from the purl.esty.com store. She has bunches of really cute patterns and items for sell. Well worth a try, ya'll. I started on it this making this purse this morning and finished it a few hours ago. It worked up extremely fast and the pattern was so easy to follow. The purse was going to be for my cousin's four year daughter, but I'm going to keep it. I'll make her a brighter pink one. She is very girlie and I'm sure she will love it. My 19 year old sister is already trying to get her hands on this small one, unless I promise to make her a bigger one. I also notice that I have taken to crocheting lots of different foods. What'up with that?

!!! National Crochet Month !!!
Did anyone else know that among other things, March is officially National Crochet Month. Or do I totally sound like a spazz. Anyway, I was asked by my job to do a display of some of my work for the month of March. Well, here it is. It's a small display , but tell me what you guys think. It's amazing the big boom that crocheting and knitting has had in the past two years. My 19 year old sister still calls me a grandma half the time, but in the same breath, "Ooooh, make me that". Since I have put the display up at the library where I work, there has been a great deal of interest. One mom came and told me about her daughters eighth birthday party entitled, "Isn't it great, I'm eight let's Cro-cheight!" Wasn't that really cute.
