It's been a long time...

I guess I'm not the best at keeping up with a blog! I say it all on facebook....

I've been going to a knitting circle and really learning how to knit. I'm enjoying learning and making new friends. So far I've made some little creatures using double pointed needles and knitting in the round. I've also made my 1st pair of socks. After making my 1st sock, I was bummed that I had to make a 2nd! I don't think socks are my thing. Maybe if I learn how to make 2 at a time, I'll enjoy it more.

I just completed my crocheted Heloise shawlette and love it! It's exactly what I wanted it to be! :)

I'm still working on my knitted shawlette and my luxury scarf! I love the yarns I've chosen for these 2 projects! I can't wait to finish them so I can wear them!

Musically--- come out to a concert this Sunday--Feb 12th and 2:00pm. It's at the Marine Barracks Annex in SE DC. I'm the coordinator and am performing, too. There will be classical music, and rock! It'll be fun and exciting!!!

I made this for spring, but it's been too cold to wear yet!

scarf and gloves

Just in time for spring! Haha! Actually, it's been cold here, so I've been able to wear them!

Flowers galore!

I'm enjoying making flowers.... it's making me feel like it's spring even though it's cold! I've made these into pins! I'm gonna give them to my friends for Easter! :)


I guess I need to post my recent projects. I'm falling behind!
I'm making an afghan... it's taking a long time. I've already made 70 hexagons, but will need at least another 70! Here's a sample of some of them.

White House

I was hanging at the White House the other day. It was nice and quiet so I took a few photos. Here's one.... in the East Room.

Last week my dad and his wife Bev came to visit. We went out to eat pretty much every day! YUM! I'm trying to get back to exercising... yuck!

I've been working on a scarf and gloves set. It's crocheted. I'm about 75% done with the scarf and 90% done with the gloves. I have to learn how to add a picot edging to finish both. This was a more difficult pattern than I've tried, but the challenge was fun! I can't wait to finish so I can get some wear out of them! I haven't got a lot of time left before spring and warmer weather. I think they'd look great with a jean jacket. I'll post a photo when they're done!
