Yay me!

Good Evening,'ve decided since, I'm going to learn to knit, and further my abilities in crocheting... I'll keep up with my projects via blogging form! Woot!

My ultimate goal, is to make the all around stunning Side Clip Cloche & Side Grande Hat, patterns both from Boutique Knits.

*DROOLS* Isn't it sooo gorgeous!?!?

So yeah.. as far as knitting is concerned, I've barely learned the Stockinette stitch. I'm currently using that to make my girlfriend yet another scarf! Ok ok she only has one right now..but I can tell it's going to turn into many :P. I'm feeling alittle down about it though. I was taught how to crochet by my mother when I was 10. Though I did not keep up with it through the last 11 years, I have from time to time done little mini projects to keep the skill up, so that I can one day teach my children. But with knitting...I'm hitting this I can't get passed the knit and purl stitch. Using both, I know the garder and stockinette stitch, but I am desperate to get passed it...
I soooooo think the Side Grande Hat, will look amazing on her! AAAH! I can't wait! I'm so excited!
So I've also picked up one of those little books from Michaels "Designer Sport by Red Heart", there's already three seperate projects I'm going to do staaaaaarting with the Crochet Tripple Throw. I think it would look sublime in our new apartment. The colors they use are browns and tans, and whatnot. Which.. you must know, Dark Browns, like Chocolate and Expresso, are my power colors. But it's not what I want for my apartment, I want COLOR!!! So I've changed the colors to "Melon, Iced Violet, Lemon Zest, and Grape", all yarns by Red Heart Designer Sport.
OH! I didn't tell you! We're moving to NY (it's Long Island, NY :P!)! I'm excited, but mostly scared... I'm leaving all mah friends! But lets not get into that, I'll get all mopey and what not, and totally not in a cute way.
Well since it's late... I'll probably be back tomorrow. Since... *sniffle* I must go to work (stayed home today with a horrid aching tummy...ew!).

Ciao Bellas,


  1. I love that hat! Great inspiration for knitting.

    Speaking of keeping track of your do know about Ravelry don't you?? It's a knit and crochet community online. Free and majorily awesome.

  2. lol It's funny 'cause it's all I hear about in other crochet/knitting communities, and I of course submitted my email for the waiting list. I took alook around on the thumbnails they had up...oh wow..seriously.. I cannot wait to be excepted! I have heard that it can take up to 2 weeks. However when I signed up, they said they'd let me know in about 4 days, so here's to hoping!

  3. Wow, this is so pretty. I'm drooling too. I'm going to try to make it just by looking at the pic. Thanks for posting it!!
