My Mistake

I made a mistake, a big mistake, people. I bought some malabrigo yarn. I might have to join some kind of group... malabrigos anonymous, or something. Have you seen this yarn, touched this yarn??? OMG! So pretty, so soft, so fun to work with!!! Here's what happens when I buy malabrigo...

And, her close-up...
And her really close-up...

The pattern is up on Ravelry and in my Etsy shop. I want to wear her all the time... while I'm cooking, watching football, showering (or maybe that's a bad idea). I'll be buying more of this yarn, lots more! And making lots of these scarflettes, as one hank of the malabrigo makes one soft, scooshy scarflette. So happy :)

Happy Birthday Momma!!!

It's momma's bday today. We celebrated with taco soup and low-carb cheesecake.

She really is the best momma ever! My brothers and I wouldn't be who we are today without her love and guidance. We couldn't ask for anything more! She helped us through some very tough times that I didn't even realize the tough of until I was older. She is the strongest most selfless person I know. LOVE YOU!!!

In crochet news... Here was one of her gifts...

It was a doily pattern worked with worsted weight yarn and a size J hook. It turned out about 4" across and very pretty. I'd like to make the next one in wool so that I can block it out a bit bigger. Maybe in Cascade 220 wool???

You know what this means...

Yep... that was a homemade tamale. From the masa to the meat to the sauce... all 100% homemade.

I need to go buy a freezer so I can make a billion of them... They were that good.

More details to come :o)

Christmas Tree Lane with My New Scarf

Aren't we pretty? hahahaha, atleast the one on the right is... I think my hair doesn't like the fog much! Anyways, the pineapple scarf is finished and GORGEOUS if I do say so myself... Here's her close-up!

I'll be writing up the pattern in the near future, along with a few more I'm working on. I need to get going on Christmas crocheting, tho!!!
