2 page layout class

Today’s class was SO MUCH FUN!  we did a 2 page scrapbook layout for Jan 2011. We will be doing 2 pages for each month and we got this cool frame to display them in as well. some pictures below…

 

More on the hat…

here is a pic of the hat at its current state.  this is from the top down. I will probably work on it some more tonight.  I REALLY! REALLY! like the colors together.  I am liking the spiral and might just go with that all the way down rather than switching to the checkerboard pattern

My new hat

definitely crocheting a hat.. new colors.. purple and teal.. thought I would try something new 🙂  it will be a checkerboard pattern.. sort of a challenge with some stitch counting and color changing, but nothing too crazy, just single crochet all around.  it was Knit Night at Jazi Crafts tonight.  lots of awesome people to hang out with.

I will try to get some pictures of the beginnings of the hat up here tomorrow

tomorrow is also the 2 page layout class at Jazi Crafts and i am signed up for that… i haven’t scrapbooked in quite a while I am really looking forward to it.  the instructor is the same that taught my bracelet class right before Christmas.

 

 

clearly…

I need more than one project at a time, lest I bore you all to tears with the Earwarmer update du jour.

I spent a lovely evening at my old haunt, the 4S branch of the San Diego County Library…

Caught up with old friends from the knitting group, including my first knitting teacher Allison and Jill who was also in that very first class. Some new people who have joined in after I moved away, and also got to see the library people i used to volunteer with so it was a great night.

we even had a few drop in to see what we were doing and stay to learn!!

Much progress was made on the Earwarmer, including some practice in ‘un-knitting’ when i realized my reversible colors had managed to switch places… i considered pretending i did it on purpose and calling it stripes but decided that would be cheating 🙂

I figure it is about 3/4 done… maybe only 1/2 I haven’t yet decided how big it is going to be…  that is the beauty of something you make up yourself, YOU get to decide when it is done 😛

earwarmer update

well, the earwarmer is still going strong, i am posting some pictures of the current status and some closeups with a little more detail.. let me know what you think 🙂

Headband / Earwarmer

Between the holidays and being so sick I was pretty sure death was imminent, I didn’t get much of anything done and certainly no knitting or crocheting. So today in celebration of feeling SO much better and New Years Day I started a new project this afternoon after some internet research. A reversible earwarmer thinger. I am knitting on dpns with 2 colors
