Mr. Bunny

I finished a knitting project!
And its not a scarf!!!

I felt it was time to broaden my horizons in the knitting world and try an actual pattern.
Thank goodness for the free patterns on the internet.

I found something that said beginner and went for it.

One big body, two arms, two legs and 2 ears later...

There are my pieces.

And this is how I pieced him together.

I need supplies!
One yarn needle and a bag of polyfill and I was ready to go.

Sew, Sew and Stuff, Stuff and Sew, sew some more.

I now introduce you to Edmond.

A little ribbon for his eyes and nose and a bow tie.

He is certainly not perfect, but pretty darn good for my first time.

hmmmm, what project will I start next??

Knit and Purl

I have been obsessed with knitting for the past week.

I started learning the basics a few months ago.
I did take a break from it. I just was not getting it.
But now I am back and I get it!
I am loving it!

This is my boring bag of yarn. Yawn.
Don't get me wrong, there are some very cool things in there, they are just not
floating my boat as it were.

So off to Etsy I go.
There are lots of amazing choices being made all over the world.

This cantelope handspun goodness from Funky Yarns is on my list of things I am loving.

Silk, angora, mohair from sdspin....yes, thank you.

Mixed grapes and marshmallows from TerraBella Spun??? ok!

I think there is some serious yarn shopping in my future.

Can't wait!

A new blog

Head on over and check out my other blog!
Its all about cool people, places and things I find living in Austin, TX.

All things might not be right here in Austin, you never know where I will end up!

Lookie What I Found!

The latest post is about a very sweet store in Buda, TX (which is just south of Austin on Highway 35).
Its called The Looking Glass.

This store is all about vintage, jewelry and girlie girls in an Alice in Wonderland theme.
Loves it!
