Sixth Entry:  I had a semi-productive weekend.  I finished some projects this weekend, like the Slytherin purse I was making for a friend and some other odds and ends.  So, I am back to making my dolls.  I am sad to say, I haven't finished my Harry Potter yet.  He only has half of his hair.  I figure after I get them completely finished making the clothing will go pretty fast.  Today while waiting on my stupid scanner to work I was thinking about Dobby.  My little girl loves him, we watch HP2 a lot because of him.  I was thinking I could use the basic pattern for my dolls and make a Dobby for her.  I am not going to tell her, I don't want to get her hopes up.  She tries to abscond off with my Ron (I am making her one of him too).  She is  pushy about her dolls and she is only 2.5.  I am excited to see if I can make a convincing Dobby.

My hubby graduates from college next Friday.  It seems like this is a bigger milestone than my graduate was, strange.  I think we are going to have an outdoor party hopefully!

Yarn It

Fifth Entry:  Last night I made a mad dash to the yarn store after I got off of work.  I purchased the yarn for the clutch (black, baby alpaca) and some yarn for a kitty hat (hot pink tweed, cotton and wool blend, pattern from Stitch N' Bitch).  The purse I started immediately and got like 95% finished, but I am not sure if it looks the way I envisioned.  So, I started on a new one and I am crossing my fingers that I don't have to buy more yarn.    

In the finished pile I added the bikini top.  I can't seem to find the other skein of yarn I used so that is put on the back burner.  Kind of pissy.

Harry Potter Dolls

Second Entry: Here is a picture of my two finished dolls. They lack faces because I haven't decided how to do it yet. Harry is still in the making so are Ron and Hermione's clothing.

My dragon scarf is going pretty slow. I get bored with the repetition of the scales. My inspiration is from Morehouse Farm Puff the Merino Dragon Scarf Kit.

Happy knitting.

First Blog

First Entry: I am a first time blogger. This is all new to me and kind of strange. About me, I have a family of three plus some add ons and a cat named Skitso.

My current knitting projects are: Harry Potter dolls, a dragon scarf, and a purse for a friend. Soon I want to learn how to make socks. I just discovered the wonderful world of double pointed needles.

That's it for now.
