Alicia's bag and a new shawl

I finished Alicia's bag JUST before the party on Sunday. I originally hated this thing (wouldn't felt completely, didn't felt sturdy enough, I had to sew plastic canvas into the lining to get it to hold up properly...) But by the time I finished it I loved it. There may be one of these babies in my future. Probably not a skull though. I wish I could find a Marilyn Monroe chart that's only 28 stitches wide.

The lining. I used the same fabric here as I used for my skully purse. I think I'm getting burned out on the skulls.

And here's the shawl I started yesterday. I've joined a knit along on craftster for people who are knitting their first lace shawls. I'm loving this shawl.

"Wait!" you say. "Knitting content on your knitting blog, Angie??"

Yeah well... don't get used to it. *wink*

No knitting today...

I'm knitting things, but I don't have pictures of them because 1)Dylan's sweater is a big rectangle of black knitted not interesting-ness 2) The thing I'm making for Krystal is a suprise, so I'm not showing it. I mean, she knows about it but she doesn't get to see it and 3) I feel too lazy to take a picture of my sws hat that is also a rectangle of not interesting-ness. I seem to be knitting lots of rectangles of not interesting-ness. I think I may nickname Dylan's sweater "The Rectangle of not interesting-ness of Doom!" 10 inches down, 5 to go before anything interesting happens. I'll blog then. Maybe.

On Sunday I made cookies:

Dylan's skully guy

Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies

2 eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of peanut butter

Mix all together, bake at 350 until the edges are firm but the centers are still squishy
Paint on faces with melted chocolate and a toothpick

And on Saturday I planted sweet peas (the flowers, not the veggies) so I'm starting something I'm calling "Sweet Pea Watch"

Sweet Peas Week One:

Obviously they haven't come up yet. lol

And just in case you're curious....

The front of the house. The row of bricks there is where I'm thinking of planting more flowers.

The neighborhood, also in case you wondered.

And finally...

The cookies in the teddy bear cookie jar we kept the cookies in.

What kind of knitting needles are you?

What kind of knitting needles are you?

You are interchangeable.Fun, free, and into everything, you've got every eventuality covered and every opportunity just has to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and every day is a new beginning. You are good at so many things, it's amazing, but you can easily lose your place and forget to show up. They have row counters for people like you!
