YAY!! i am Knitting!!!!

Honestly the crocheting wasn't that bad! i am just glad to be doing something again where i can relax a little bit. So i finished my circle and even had to pull like 5 rows of my circle but it was really easy to do that's my favorite thing about crocheting-A lot less stressful! you are only worrying about the one loop not a whole row of loops. Anyway here is my completed circle before i started knitting!

I started knitting the body of the bag but only have about an inch done. i can already tell it's going to be super cute!! I am proud of what i have managed to put together. But there is a small concern: I am worried about running out of fuzzy yarn. We'll see...

Being lazy

Well I am keeping to my goal of keeping up with my posting but the last few days I haven't been Doing anything. I just wish the crochet part of the bag was done then I could get on with the knitting but I am dragging on crocheting the circle...drag...drag...drag.
I went to Border's yesterday and replenished my knitting magazines, so many ideas, so much yarn and it never ends. I have so many things I want to make. Patterns I have printed, patterns I have marked in books and magazines.
I wonder if there is such a thing as Knitter's Block--like writer's block? well I know I won't be getting it for awhile if there is such a thing.
Today I plan to kick some butt on my circle-wish me luck!!

UGH i suck at this blog thing and i thought i would do really good but i really am gonna try to do better this year just be patient with me.
Well i have gotten a few projects done since i last wrote i am posting pics to update.
PICS: The light blue cardigan i made for my friend Andrea's new baby boy Jackson.

The light pink cardigan is for my husband's friend baby girl due in Feb. the matching pink booties are for her too.
And my adorable son is wearing a hoodie a made for him, the hood turn out huge but it's still really cute and i am quite proud of it and everything i made. :)
Right now i am working on a project i have been forced into but lucky for that person (she knows who she is) i love her. its a basket/bag for her eeyore who needs a "home" to keep him safe oh his adventures and i and crocheting the circle for the bottom of the bag i figured it would be easier than trying to knit a bottom...well it is and it isn't i just can't get the hang of when to increase i haven't gotten that intuition yet. But i do plan on knitting up from the bottom i am no where close to being able to crochet the whole bag. I am hoping it turns out pretty good.
P.S. the dear, sweet person i am making this for is and experienced knitter and crocheter so i am hoping she likes the noticeably homemade look i am sure this bag will have :) I know no matter ho it turns out EEYORE WILL LOVE IT and he is the only audience i am worried about.
