We've missed it.

Usually when you hear the words thread, crochet and pineapple in the same sentence you think "grandma, or doily" Well I don't want you thinking that anymore. From now on I want you thinking SEXY!
This past week I made my sister a garter for her wedding. We're not able to attend the wedding so I wanted to make her something. pretty huh? The pattern is from Interweave Crochet. (ravelry link) up close you can see the beads. very cool I had to overnight the package to her and I'm not sure if she's gotten it. she was supposed to get it by 12 today.. but I haven't heard from her. I know she's doing the whole day before the wedding stuff so I'm not too worried.

I also wanted to make her something for after the wedding (eye wiggle) so I found this pattern on ravelry. super sexy pineapples huh? Note: that link isn't child friendly so watch who's watching when you click it. I had some red thread laying around and thought it would look wonderful in red. I hope she likes it!

OH Holy COW!

I can't believe how long I've been gone. right after my last post (with in the next few days that is) I hurt my back. I went to the chiropractor and was feeling good until I stretched the wrong way or bent over or something and then last Saturday and Sunday I spent in bed with maybe about 5 min or so sitting up. (it was sooo painful) I went back to the chiro and he confirmed that I had/have a bulging disc. UGH not fun so he tried some traction and sent me home. my next appt was for wed and I was remarkably better. I could sit up at least. Then yesterday I had another appt. and I'm doing soooooooooooo much better. the result of all that is not much knitting or crocheting going on. Though it did make a dent (a smallish one) in my reading queue.
Yesterday was the last day for the girl's VBS at our church so they had a closing program. They sang songs and each grade level did their verse. I know the girls had a lot of fun this week. My Dh was the valet and he also went and picked up my nephew and took him to the VBS.
I brought my Sock Wars SIP's to knit on during the program. and I got a good part of them done. I'm seriously surprised I'm not dead yet. (in the game I mean!) I actually have a goal to finish them and send them off this weekend. It's a good goal! I'm also going to use them as my DADA project this month. now to get off the Internet and knit... LOL.. not sure when that will happen. Oh ravelry, I love you!

more projects!

Just in time for may classes I finished my tote/bag. for Charms class. The charm was repello muggletum. so on our trip to the new movie I can hide goodies and knitting in this tote and those muggles won't know.. LOL. I'm a dork I know! I really really love the Asian print I used as the inside lining. It's larger than it looks and I can carry a book or two inside and the pockets give me room for other things. and the straps are a comfy. I love it!
I have a baby shower to go to today and I made some baby bibs and a pineapple hat for the gift. The hat turned out rather cute! I hope she likes it. I also turned it in for my herbology class. We had to use bobbles for this month's project. I'm not the hugest fan of bobbles. but like I said this hat turned out cute.
I'm still working on my 2nd pair of Socks for sock wars. I'm ready to be done and just waiting to die... for some reason I'm having a hard time finishing this pair. We'll see if i "die" before finishing them.. anyways gotta jet.
