Come yarn with me..

Good day and Happiness, dear readers!
I want you all to join me in this yarn along.
Ginny over at Small Things has been hosting these Yarn Alongs and I'm loving them so I decided to try it. The point is to post a photo of what your reading and what you're knitting (or in my case, crocheting.)
And that agrees with me.
So here goes..

A Blanket 
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool
Colors: 2 skeins of Currant (bright pink) 
6 skeins of Water Chesnut (light pink)
Pattern: "#66 Dainty Chevron" in book, 154 Crochet Wave Patterns by Darla Sims.
Emily's Quest 
(third book in the Emily of New Moon series)
by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

This is the week of three! I have only three skeins left to crochet and I'm reading the third book in the series! I love it too! The series is wonderful... but then, everything by L. M. Montgomery is wonderful.

More Projects

Here is my progress report on my cardigan for the Tops, Tanks and Tee's Knit Along at Luvinthemommyhood. Still knitting away! 
Pattern: Abalone

 And here are the other things I've been working on the last few weeks. Made this headband for my sis! Love this yarn! It's Vanna's Choice Baby Yarn in Cheery Cherry. But it's more of a hot pink than a Cherry. 

Trying to get a head start on inventory for our business Pretty Wit.  These are Ear Warmers and Fingerless Gloves embellished with wooden buttons.

This is a tote/purse I made for my sis-in-law's birthday! I used Noodleheads 241 Tote Pattern which I highly recommend.  It makes for a very nicely finished bag and it's so fun to sew.

I finally got some pictures of my too cute nevvy in his Christmas present. A Viking Hat! I used Mamachee's Lael Viking Hat Pattern which I highly recommend as well. 

Don't you just want to kiss those cheeks?!

Are you tired of my pictures yet? I don't think I showed these to you all yet. I made these fingerless gloves for myself right after Christmas. I love them! They are so comfy and pretty. I used Cable Fingerless Gloves by Tamarack.  And the yarn is Noro silk garden yarn. Loved knitting with it.

Happy Thought

Psalm 37:3-7

New Living Translation (NLT)

Trust in the Lord and do good.
    Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you your heart’s desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
    Trust him, and he will help you.
He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
    and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.
Be still in the presence of the Lord,
    and wait patiently for him to act.
Don’t worry about evil people who prosper
    or fret about their wicked schemes.

Happy Tuesday!

Finished Projects!

Why hello friends! I just wanted to share a few projects I have finished in the last few weeks!

I made this little sweater dress for my niece for her first birthday!
More pictures and details on my Ravelry page. 

I made this shirt for myself! It is the first knitted garment I've ever made and I love how it turned out! More details on my Ravelry page. 

And here are some pictures of my nice clean room just for fun. :) I'm planning on redecorating someday but this is what it looks like right now.

What have you all been up to lately? Feel free to link to your projects in the comments!
