Weekend Update

I went to my first knitting class this weekend. Ms. Ruth is the instructor, she’s… um just a little bit weird. lol She teaches high school Biology and went off on a tangent about how micro-biologist are weird. HA! I learned how to cast on, knit, and purl!!!! whohoo!!!! I choose a sweater cap for my 1st project. It has ribbing (or it’s suppose to have ribbing) lol. Things were going fine, until Ms. Ruth noticed a mistake and suggested I start over, then she proceeded to RIP all my work off the needles!!!! NOOOOOOOOoooooooooo!
After I recovered from seeing all my hard work unravel. Class was over and I was sent on my merry ole way. lol I haven’t made anymore progress on the ribbing of the hat yet.


Last week the niece saw my blanket and asked me to make her one. Soooo I put mine on the side to start hers. We went yesterday afternoon so she could pick out her yarn. She’s one funny little girl. The stuff she says…whew! Her mom needs to start praying RIGHT now!

Anyway when we reached the wall of yarn in Wally World, I told her to “Have At It!” and she looks up at me and says “I can have one of ALL of them?” HAHa! to which I replied “NO MAAAM, you can have TWO” lol

We stood there for 20minutes, she kept changing her mind. smh

Anywhoo, this is where I am on hers…
I have to have it finished by Thursdays softball game…You know if you tell a child you will do something, you damn well betta do it!

OH! Even better news!

I came home Friday and found that that loving husband of mine put up some shelves in my craft room! 😀

Yes, he’s that loving husband of mine b/c he put up the shelves, lol. j/k he’s always loving, even when I want to bust his head open with metal objects. All I need now is a work table and chair.

That’s pretty much my weekend.

Wait! I’m going to a Martini themed Slumber Party this month, and I was asked to make some “Martini Candles”. YAY!!! I can’t wait to start on those. of course I will post pics when they are finished.
