Happy Holidays!!!

Well, Christmas is over. Fiber related things I got for Christmas: A knitting book(Hollywood Knits), A yarn-tainer, A rolling yarn tote from Joann's. That's it, but quite enough. I got lots of other stuff for Christmas. I'm not quite done making Christmas presents, but I'm almost done. I'll post some pictures soon. Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Finally finished!!!

I finally finished my mom's afghan. I like it. Roxy got up on the couch, posed for one picture and then jumped down. What a ham.

These are some Christmas tree ornaments I made from this pattern I bought on etsy. I think they turned out cute. I like the lighter green one better. But I think they're both cute.

I finished the Amigurumi Samurai that I bought here. Then I finally added the Ninja star to the ninja, so I took a picture of them together.

I also bought these two Japanese books here and got them in the mail on Friday. Woo-hoo!

I can't wait to start making stuff. Too many things to make...ahhhh!!!! How do I choose?

Anyway, I'm almost done with the afghan I am making for my mom. If all goes as planned, I should finish it this week. I started a scrapbook for my dog. Yep, I'm one of those people. It's a small one if that makes a difference. I made the first page for it yesterday. I also added the pictures to some photo ornaments. Then I started on a snowman from this Roxycraft pattern. And I did some Christmas shopping. It feels like the holidays to me now.

My Secret Pal is awesome!

I got a package today from my wonderful Secret Pal. It was full of goodies, as you can see. The yarn is awesome. It is 150 yds. of recycled silk. What to use it on...I am very excited to get some knitting patterns, since I am planning on learning in January. And she sent me some more Roxycraft patterns, which are awesome. The knitting clips are very cool. I keep seeing them in magazines, but not in any stores. And I've been scrapbooking again, so the scrapjournal kit is great. The book sounds really cool, and the air freshener I haven't smelled yet, but Sugar Cane and Vanilla sounds about right. Thanks so much SP!

Here's what else I've been doing. I'm still working on the border for my mom's afghan, it's almost done. I'm currently reading the Watchmen, a graphic novel. I'm trying to catch up on some tv shows that I've been recording. Finally got to see the season premiere of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. It was pretty good, but we'll have to see how it goes. Saturday Night Live is one of my favorite TV shows, even when it's not funny, and I'm really excited they decided to release Season 1 in its entirety. Planning out my crochet schedule, so that I get the things done that I want to get done. That's about it. Well, until next time.
