So I'll just end up buying more on the way ^_^. I have my dichcloth supplies with me at least for the time being. That probably won't last me long. I'll miss you all!

I Got My Lace Swap Package!!!!!

OMG! this package is wonderful!!!! My pal was very considerate of my knitting bakground/ skill level. I got homemade stitch markers, Bare merino from Knit Picks (so I can play with dyes), a pair of Bryspun needles, triangular (Adamas) shawl pattern from Knit Picks, ElizabethI pattern for 3 scaves, 100% Baby Alpaca from Knit Picks, a free pattern for Perdita cuffs/bracelets, DMC perle cotton yarn and beads (for the bracelet). Also included was a card and an origami crane. I hope I didn't miss anything, there's just so much!! ^_^.

Thank you soooo much My Lace Swap Pal!!!!! I'll be keeping in touch with you. I'm glad my boss suggested I sign up for this swap it's so much fun! I'm gonna be sleeping with my yarn tonight......

Actually, I'll be sleeping with lots of yarn tonight cuz I BOUGHT MORE YARN AGAIN!!!!!!!It's my boss's fault for taking me to River City Yarns.

Did I mention that my computer desk already looks like this?!? It's to stop me from playing on my computer too much.

I've finished the green mushroom for my nephew but he lost it that evening u_u. But its ok we know he's in the house somewhere. I named him Yohan but my nephew keeps calling it Yoshi. Yoshi is mine!!!!^_^ I'm gonna go visit my Pal's blog now! I'll post again in a few days.

More of Yoshi!

This is Yoshi in my friend's Bike Helmut, Yoshi at a Cowboy's breakfast, and Yshi with a piece of marble cheesecake my co-worker got me.

This is Yoshi in Calgary a few weeks ago. A view from my hotel window, infront of a wooden tipi, chained up in a Mountain Police's cabin, and finally infront of my boss's computer. ^_^

I've sent my Lace Swap!

The yarn is a dark maroon/purple color which looks like the one in the pattern. I've also included 2 x-mas ornaments of a measuring cup and a hand held blender cuz my pal likes to bake, 2 of my felt softies, orange and lemon drops, an extra pattern, and a card.

My weekly update

I've decided to make Thursday nights my weekly update night cuz I have Friday Saturdays off. Last weekend I had a blast hanging out with my co-workers in Calgary. We spent lost of money on food ( restaurant called The Tribune in Calgary) and drinks ( at The Pallisier/Fairmont Hotel) and had a blast. We gossiped, and laughed till our stomach hurt. ^_^ I also got a minimal amount of sleep that evening...morning ^_^, minimal amount of water that day, and had to drive home in 2 and a half hours stright...most of the time in a rain storm.....not fun that part. But the trip was still great. I'm glad I had decided to join in on this trip.

The rest of the week was pretty much uneventful. Just me trying to crochet a mushroom like the one my boss made me for my nephew. He (almost 2 and a half yrs old) was digging in my purse and found Yoshi and asked me what it was, upon finding out it had a name he was very excited and started to introduce Yoshi to every family member in the house. Then he saw the couch and looke dat Yoshi then decided to bang Yoshi repeatedly onto the sofa. To which I sadi to him " No! No! Yoshi Owwie!" Then he looks at Yoshi and gives him a kiss to make it better. *sigh* had to admit that was cute and couldn't really get mad at him for banging Yoshi head into the sofa. Ao I 've decided to make him his own so he can bash it's head all he wants. It's gonna be green cuz he likes green.

Well, that's about all for now, back to mushroom making.

All about me!

I bought yarn today!!!! I found some lace yarn and pattern for my Lace Swap buddy! Very excited, hope they will like it. I also got this for myself. I have no idea how to do this yet but the very nice lady at the yarn store says I can visit anytime if I have problems. She doesn’t know she had just invited the clumsiest and hardest to explain things to person in the world (well, maybe not the world but to my Mother, I am ^_^) N.E. ways this is what I bought

It’s 100% Pure New Zealand Wool. I plan on using it as a stress ball (I just hold it and everything bad goes away!) for the time being till I get the courage to start it. The lady at the store said that this pattern will be a challenge for me cuz I’m such a “beginner knitter”. I’ve been knitting scarves since I can remember but lace knit can be a different story. But the yarn was so pretty and soft that I had to get it.

Next is the Piggy poit holder I am making for cousin in Toronto, he's born in the year of the pigs and in his appartment he has a lot of stuffs of pigs (a small collection of it is from me ^_^). This was what I had last night

this what what I did this evening. The difference is about an inch and a quarter^_^.

The yarn is 100% cotton I got from Michael's.

Tomorrow I'm taking a litle road trip with some friends from work. And the evening after I'm gonna be partying with my non work friends cuz it's one of their's birthday. So busy busy weekend for me ^_^.

that's all for now, post ya later!

A little more about meself

I’ve had a canker sore in my mouth for a few days now and it bugs the hell out of me. My coworker told me to put toothpaste on it cuz it works for her….I’m not sure though toothpaste can’t make it any more annoying, I hope. >_< .... I've found the pics of the stuffs I made! Here are some felt softies: This piece of cake and the elephants I got a pattern from a book I bought in Vancouver. A friend of mine still has it so I can't you the cover yet.

The "squids" and the mussle I made myself for some friend at work. I've also made a clam but I forgot to take a picture.....well actually I made 2 but one got attacked by a cat before they got delivered so I made another one.

Here is a pony that I have been knitting for a long time but for some reason is too "busy" to finish. I bought the pattern from Lewis Crafts.

Yoshi!!!! What my Boss made me ^_^

Yoshi was a gift from my Boss. She crocheted(sp?) him in only an hour!

This is Yoshi's first day out:

Here he is in the car

Here he is at IKEA

This is what I ate at IKEA

Here he is with deer antlers

This was on a co-worker's t-shirt ^_^

My Boss tried to teach me how to make one lastnight at a staff party but it got dark and I couldn't see what I saw doing so, soon! I will learn how to make friends for Yoshi!

This is an origami thing I made for a Christmas craft sale at my church. Three lillies, a leaf, on some rose scented waz.

This is a piece of silk I dyed in school last year. Gouda resist technique. Morrish(sp?)/Islamic design. Had to mix the colors myself. This took me 2 days, one evening, and only 2 hours of sleep to finish

These are some of my knittings...I know they're not that special but I'm proud of them ^_^

These are some of my monkeys, I've sold all of them to my cousin as Christmas presents already.

This is a bonnet hat I decorated at work with ribbon flowers and leaves.

Well, that's all for now! That was fun ^_^

I think I'm getting the hang of blogging!

I've update my profile ^_^
Now on to trying to post pics!
