As the month passes me by

I got a job offer in Dallas, and I’m considering going. After living in Las Vegas for the past 17 years, I just may go.  It’s a big decision for me and my family.  Dallas looks like a beautiful city. I will keep you posted. 

Crochet month in full effect.  I finished the main part of blanket and noemi starting on the edging. I love how quickly and easily this has worked up.  



Onto my jewelry progress.  I have gotten so much done this weekend.  I started new projects and finished up others I started a couple of weeks ago. Here is a pair of earrings I finished and some copper hearts.  I think these will turn into earrings as well.

Arm knitting a blanket, it didn’t work

I’ve seen these wonderfully comfy cozy arm knit blankets all over Pinterest. Here is one example. I felt like I could just wrap myself in it with a cup of cocoa and watch some movies.
Friday night I went and picked out my yarn, and started working on it.

As I worked I could not wait to wrap it around me.
Disappointment set in when I finished. It’s not a blanket, it’s a net, for a fisherman.

When I put it over me one arm went through a hole and my freezing feet went through another. I was not even close to feeling warmer.

I started to rip I out and now am crocheting with a Q hook another warmer blanket. I have a lot of this yarn. Maybe I’ll give a arm knit scarf a try.

How’s the challenge coming along?

I hope everyone had a wonderful gobble day! I did. I spent time with my beautiful family and ate way way too much.
I’m having so much fun with this challenge. I look forward to every morning getting my email with a new pattern.
This one is in progress. I had extra yarn so I made two hats, one preemie and one micro preemie.

Here are three that I have done.
So, what do you think?

First post, jitters

Hello, and thank you for stopping by. I’m new to the WordPress community and blogging.
As I was searching for something brilliant to share and write about, I came up blank. I wanted to be witty, humorous, and charming. I came up with nothing. I started looking through other blogs for ideas, still nothing. Then I came across this

Twelve preemie or newborn hats in twelve days, then donate to the nearest hospital with a NICU. PERFECT!
