I am totally happy that hurricane Gustav had minimal damage!!! especially that my friend over at Art and Soul
was okay!!! :] That makes me happy...
I finished my weaving! It's a happy little red pouch! It did not turn out exactly like I planned, but you know, it was my first try.
I am making my first really big project (at least really big to me), a bag! I got the pattern from an awesome book I got from the library: Folk Bags
Here's what it looks like right now:
OK, so it's not exactly even near being done, but...
...this is done! my first-ever granny square! I got the pattern from this book, really a fantastic book for beginners, I highly recommend it! (although in no way am I a beginner. *scoffs* ;])
Another book I got from the library... Knitting Lessons
It's not really a pattern book or anything, it's a fantastic compilation of knitting stories!
Right now I'm reading The Giver as well. It's really good, I am just swallowing it up! good thing there's a sequel!
As many of you know I started socks! I followed this wonderful video(scroll halfway down the page) to turn the heel. So far I think they look good for my first pair-ever! :]
I also plan to make this hippo, although I haven't even cast on for it yet.
I got rock band wii! It's really fun!!! my fave is drums, my fave song is "In Bloom" by Nirvana and "Should I Stay or Should I Go " by someone, I forgot the band's name. :]
My dad finally got an I phone! They came out, like July 11th! super cool, it is!(yoda-ish)
I started school monday! summer came and went so fast. although it's still like 95 degrees F in California. yes, it's sweltering HOT!
well, after lots of projects, books, first-ever's, and smileys, I'm finally done with this very long post. and yes, there just has to be another smiley :]
