What kind of yarn are you...

My Result:

Baby Alpaca-You are beautiful and soft, if sometimes a little difficult. Nothing but the best for you, etc. Quality, but out of the league for the rabble.

One down

Scarf for the summer scarf swap at crochetville DONE!!!! and it's gorgeous I want one for me too... I've never participated in a swap before and so far still so much to be desired...

but for my granny square swap...WOW! what a difference, those ladies are great! I've received so many squares all ready and have begun to mail out some of my own. I must post pictures soon.

On to my other pressing projects....hopefully I can finish one a day for the next 3 days! ahhhhhh...wishful thinking.

I've been not completing projects! adding ot my ever growing list of to do projects!
I'm involved in a scarf swap at crochetville...that one is working up quiet nicely. I hope my swap partner loves it as much as I do. Then I signed up for the Summer camp swap at crochetville...that one should be fun but it seems like somethings missing....(more later)
Still working on a FBB, circle to square blanket, messenger bag (graduation present), wee back-pack, and a beach tote...I think that's all of them. I'll post pictures as I complete them! if I ever do!

Thank You!

I wanted to thank my FGM over at crochetville for gifting me the skein of Red Heart Super Saver 362 Spruce that I was looking for and could not find in my area or at a reasonable price.


I've got issues! I can not go into a store pick out a pair of shoes and take them home without paying for them?! right? So why do some poeple insist on doing that very same thing to me?! Why am I not considered a store when they request hand-made items that I spend time on and give my all to. Why do they insist on trying them on...wearing them around...ordering another and expect to pay when ever they feel ready!? AAAARRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!

It makes me want to scream! I work very hard on EVERY thing I make and just expect some consideration.

at the moment I am over-loaded with projects and under-paid for the ones completed...

4/27 Dodger game

We had a great time! Pictured is Lance (1st picture) and Dennis (2nd picture)

I've been crocheting like mad woman trying to get 2 of the 4 Fat bottom bags done before Mother's day...and I hit a snag! one of the bags (navy with military lining pictured) I completed no problem but the other...I didn't have enough yarn! and when I went online to find it so I could purchase it it looks like it's been discountined?! I posted a message on crochetville and I've had some responses but I don't think I'll get it in time...also the lining for this bag is still not shipped! I bought it on ebay and I'm just having a heck of a time!

But I did score some free yarn! I placed an add on freecycle and got 2 responses...One wonderful lady gave me 2 huge bags of yarn! I'm sorting and hoping to use most of it for my Granny square swap over at Yarn lover's room.

I also signed up for the 2008 Summer scarf swap at crochetville and I'm definetly looking forward to that! I can't wait to find out who I'm swapping with!

It's going to be a busy month for me!! just like I like it

(update in the baby blanket-still plugging along. I got the invitation to the baby shower...June 7th. (which by the way is my 13th wedding anniversary!) gotta finish it up! it's almost halfway joined and it's not looking too bad...if I say so myself?!
