I made this ninja for my boyfriend. I got the pattern from NeedleNoodle's etsy shop. I plan on making the rest of the fighter patterns for my boyfriend's 3 brothers for Christmas. I am pleased with the way he turned out. Oh, and I still have to add the ninja star, but I don't have any metallic thread at this time. Second picture, he is making a sneak attack on my dog. Ha ha.

Okay, I have one more square to go until I am done with the square making portion of my mom's afghan. I will post a pic when I start putting the squares together. So today, I did a little bit of shopping. I went to Michael's and got the last two skeins of yarn I needed for the afghan I am making for my Aunt. I'll tell you about that one as soon as I start it. I went to Old Navy and got a Fleece pullover for $10. And I went to Target and spent way too much money. But the best part of the holiday...my sister got engaged!!!!! She lives in Dallas and is an awesome person, so good for her. My brother and his friend are in town visiting. It's nice to have company. And until my next post, which if all goes as planned should be in a couple of days, here is a picture of my dog. She is a year old now, but these pictures are from the day I got her when she was 5 weeks old.

I bought a Hello Kitty Japanese Crochet book from this Etsy shop on Friday. And I got it in the mail yesterday. I am very anxious to try something from it, but I'm still working on the afghan. 11 squares left. I'm hoping to have the squares put together by Sunday night. We'll see.

So, I am now halfway done with the squares for my mom's afghan. It is the Sunrise Sunset afghan from Coats and Clark. It is pretty much the only thing I am working on right now. I finished all the dark background squares. Now I have to get on the light background ones. This is my first afghan with squares, and it is taking me a while.

I usually have a finished object to post, but that's not gonna happen for a bit, so I thought I would tell what I am doing. First I am working on a pattern called Momo the Octopus from Roxycraft, but I didn't realize it called for two skeins of yarn. When I ran out of the first skein, I went back to Hobby Lobby to get another and they were out of that color. So now I have to go search for it. No big deal, except that I am gonna wait until I am out shopping again. So one UFO temporarily put away. I do want to finish it. Then I started making the Felted Crochet pillow from SWS Yarn by Patons. I went shopping this weekend and got new sheets and a duvet cover for my bed, so I thought I would make a pillow to match. I got white sheets that have a grid pattern in white. And my duvet cover is a bluish grey color(slate in the picture) that has stripes in the same color. So I am making the pillow out of Natural Denim. It is actually a lot more grey than it looks in the picture. I am about halfway done with that. I am only working on that during my breaks at work because it is single crochet and no changes in the pattern really. I've never felted before, so that should be fun. So I think that I am gonna try to do some scrapbooking for the next couple of days. My sister bought this framed scrapbook page kit and she asked me if I wanted to make something for my mom with it. So I am going to work on that. My scrapbook supplies are building up since I haven't used them in a while. Well, thats all for today. It seems to be legitimately cold outside today...for Texas I mean...59.
