Hello everyone! Gee, it hasn’t even been too long! Only a week, thats hardly any time at all. I’m posting now to tell you all about a non-design project…well, almost 🙂

I’m working on learning a bit more about sweater design, I found this adorable little pattern called Baby Sophisticate by Linden Down  It’s really sweet and it has those nice sleeves I’ve been wanting to learn to make! If you see the picture you’ll know exactly what I mean, I’m sure. I decided that it was such a small project that it would be fine for me to alter a few things to see how it turned out. Of course I’ll keep you updated on all of my progress here but you can also see my notes and lots of progress pics on my project page here! I’m going to (try at least) making it a closed sweater and adding a little hood (you can see my full notes on the project page ^^) and I’ll also jot down all of my modifications for any one else to try out if they wish to.

Heres a quick (not so great) progress pick for you to see:

I’ve already started working around instead of flat and it’s very quick!

Also we (meaning me mostly, probably) have to remember that the gift-giving holidays are coming! This means terrible business for me, rushing for some last minute gifts. Now I’m going to let you all in on a little secret, promise you won’t tell? Oh, I know I can trust you 😉 Numbers 1-5 in my Ravelry queue are all gifts for people! I havn’t started any project pages yet as not to arouse suspicion and curiosity from my crafting relatives! But come December 25th, WHAM!, expect a sudden project boom! And a very lengthy post over here from me of course! All the rest of the projects that are in my wishlist are really very wonderful, you might want to check them out!

Good morning everybody!

Up-and-Coming

St.Patrick’s Day! It’s coming round the bend with all the leprechon’s prepared to whack you over the head with a sheleighly sticks(they are very temper-mental you know). So the question is…How are you really supposed to celebrate Saint Patrick?

Well, the one thing that has never failed me on a holiday is (a) Candy and (b) Decorations and nothing says, “Welcome, you crazy leprechon’s!” like four-leafed clovers!

When I was really little, I thought that it was three-leafed clovers that were the lucky ones and I could never understand why everyone always had such a hard time finding them! 🙂

So, now that I know that I should have been looking for four leaves, I’m going to make some to try and draw the little green Irish in my direction 😉 tonight I think I’ll make a clover chain to replace my Halloween paper chain that now swings atop my door 🙂

I’ll be using Julie Kundhi’s wonderful tiny four-leaf clovers pattern on Ravelry and joining them all with a chain 🙂 (this is where most of my creativity both begins and ends)

Look around and try to find the little greenies, they love to hide all around and study us you know 🙂
