Cuff Queen

This week I went to my second knitting class and had a great instructor - Carmen, she taught us way more then the class said it would which was great! So this week I learned how to increase, decrease, and 2 new stitches as well as what books are good references and how to read patterns! My next couple projects are going to be way more exciting then scarves and cuffs, but it is still nice to finish something in a day so today I whipped up a pair of cuffs for a friend. I have to say I think I am the Cuff Queen after 5 pairs and they are fun to make so this will stay in my repertoire.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Wednesday, February 9, 2011


Had a couple birthdays and of course Valentine's Day. Birthday cards were inspired by a Basic Grey card making class I took a while back at Archivers. The "lips" card was from Better Homes and Gardens. Their lips were a little more shapely then mine, but hey it was my first try :-)

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Over the weekend I was perusing my favorite scrapbooking sites and there was a contest posted so I decided to throw my hat in the ring and see if I could somehow be one of the randomly selected lucky chicks who wins a whole box of scrapping stuff. Since I won a box of stuff last year, I didn't count on this good fortune again, but if you don't play you can't win!

This morning I awoke to this message in my inbox.

SWEET! Winner winner chicken dinner - yahoo! Will post pics of my winnings once they arrive.

Sprinkles mmmmm

Miss Sydney got me a bit of California for my birthday - Sprinkles cupcake mix (Jessica and I went there when we were in CA for work a couple years back...ohh how I was in CA right now!). Andrea and Bryan were over for dinner last night so I decided to whip them up and figured I would have left over celebratory cupcakes for after our race today. They turned out perfectly delicious!

Snowday Project

We had a snowday today, so I was able to knit myself a pair of cuffs. I used the 3 colors I had left over from knitting mom, Jill and Sarah a pair. It was a good chance for me to practice adding a color. Youtube videos are great for knitting because if I forget how to do something someone has posted a video on how to do it on youtube. Usually it only takes me about 6-8 times of watching the video to figure it out. Pretty snazzy if I do say so myself :-)
