Weekly Wrap Up

OK, so my new Saturday blog topic is "Weekly Wrap Up" where I'll post a couple of the projects I worked on throughout the week, share a story or two, post a recipe, or just talk about something random that happened.  I don't know how many of you follow my blog regularly, but thanks for sticking around, even though I have blog topic ADD right now. :)

So, I made this little owl for the winner of a giveaway.  It's the first time I made an owl with all-white eyes, but I kinda like it.  I did give away the hat through my AmeliaCalvin shop, but the crazy owl hat pattern is available in my CrazySocks Crochet shop. 

 I really enjoyed making this toddler-size Gracie Bonnet.  These are so simple, but I think they're very classy.  I'm thinking M needs one in purple.  Not sure if she'll wear it, or if I have time to make her one, but we'll see.  These are also for sale in my AC shop... and the pattern is available at CSC.  I'm doing lazy abbreviations now... learn them. :)

I bought this really lovely handspun yarn from The Fine Lime.  I happened to be her 100th sale, so I got a very generous discount on it.  It was mildly challenging to knit with it b/c the thickness of the yarn went from VERY thick to VERY thin... but once I got the hang of it, I think it turned out really nice!  This hat is still for sale on my AC fan page, if you're interested.

I didn't really do anything extra special this week.  Finally got around to watching "The Tourist" with a friend.  It was pretty predictable, but I enjoyed it.  The kids finished up their first session of swimming classes, and they're doing great!  Since I'm paying the YMCA an arm and a leg for them to go there, I'm also signing the kids up for gymnastics.  I hear gas prices are going to keep rising, so I'm scheduling the classes on the same day, so I only have to go there once a week.  I'm smart. :)


  1. I love the owl and green hats, they are divine.
    I saw someone made an ipad cover on one of the blogs and I'm thinking I'm going to do the same for sure as to buy one costs a lot of money. I really also have to crochet a cover for my nieces new Tracfone LG800G smart prepaid phone she's just bought as I don't want her to get the large touch screen scratched or shattered as the phone cost her $50. Angie is only paying $7/month for Tracfone service, that's another cost to investigate cos that's got to be the lowest price I've ever heard of.

  2. My husband sometimes uses one of those Tracfones or GoPhones... or whatever. I don't know if he pays monthly or if he just pays a certain amount of dollars for minutes. Anyway, they're pretty cheap & they work pretty well. Maybe I should consider it...

    I crocheted my kids some little washcloths today. They always get so happy when I make stuff for them. :)
