Fish Out of Water

I made a Tiny Mermaid this afternoon! Another one of Anna Hrachovec's designs, from her new book, Teeny Tiny Mochimochi.

I made her hair WAY to long, so I had to cut it. But she looks much better. :) REMEBER: She's watching you....

Chickens, Pigs and Pullovers. OH MY!

I made a chicken from Anna Hrachovec's new book, Teeny Tiny Mochimochi. It's so adorable! It was a fast knit, and I think I'll take it on vacation (2 more weeks!) with us. I used Loops and Threads Impeccable Solids in ''Grey''.

 And I made a pig (my own pattern) for the comin' soon magazine LCF Crochet. I used Stitch Nation by Debbie Stroller Bamboo Ewe in ''Snapdragon''.

Misty is going pretty good. I have 6 rounds left on the body of Lop, but I ran out of ths second skein of yarn. Which means I'll need to get another one before I can finish it. :P The deadline isn't for awhile though. So that's okay. Oh, you can pre-order the pattern here.

Not So Petite Pencil

I made a pencil today! It's really cute! Here's the pattern. It's really simple, and I recommend it for beginners, like me. :) My sister got the book Mochimochi Land from the library and I saw this pattern, and I knew I had to make it! I can't wait to see Anna's next book, Teeny Tiny Mochimochi.

I'm testing Lop on Ravelry. Go here to see it. :) It's really easy, and it'll work up nice and soft in the yarn I'm using. I'm using Naturally Caron Spa in ''Ocean Spray''.

'Lil Barney

Barney has gotten pretty big! He's four months old and weights six pounds now. Here's some pictures (Oh, I think he's trying to smell the camera in the first and third picture).

WARNING: He may look cute and cuddly, but he is capable of breaking vases. Don't be fooled by his innocent little face.

I made a cowl yesterday with my prize yarn. Yes, yes, it's kinda early to make something with my prize yarn, but I really felt like making a cowl with that yarn. It's so soft, and I'd say it turned out pretty nice. I used one skein of Shine Sport and a little bit more from the other skein.

I'm sure I'll be wearing this a lot during Winter. :)

Well, we've found maybe 7 eggs so far! Ducky (no, she's not a duck) layed one today. Here's some pictures.

I got my prize yarn this afternoon! There's...

2 110 yard skein of Knit Picks Shine Sport in ''Lady Slipper''

And a skein of Knit Picks Capra DK in ''Fairy Tale''

Thanks Doodlenoodle! I loooove it. :) Now the question is: What do I make with it? I won't decide right away though.

July Challenge

I'm is second place in July Challenge over at the Designers Challenge! Thanks so much Doodlenoodle! And congrads Jade108!
It was 16-15, but I ended up winning in the end. I was in the lead for about a week, and it was 11-10, then today, she got another vote.
And someone voted for me, and then she got a vote. Then someone else voted for me, then she got a vote. Then someone else voted for me, and she got a vote. So it was 14-14. Then someone voted for me, and it didn't tie up again! All in all, I'm very happy. :)

Here's my entry:

I gave my dad the Star Wars figures! I think he liked them. :)

Ripply Cushion

I finished my second Lucy Project tonight! It's a pillow for Grandma and Grandpa. Well, maybe for someone else. It'll be one of my Christmas presents though.

 I used Stitch Nation by Debbie Stroller Full 'O Sheep in ''Meadow'' and some white DK Lion Brand Yarn. I used DK weight, because the green yarn was kinda thin. And it seemed to work.

August Designer's Challenge

Well, I finished my August Challenge over at the Designer's Challenge on Ravelry! It's a little lumpy, because it needs a tad more stuffing. But other then that, it worked out okay. It was pretty boring though.

Oh, I'm in second place in the July Challenge! The yarn is so pretty...

R.I.P. Big Red...but eggs?!

Big Red died yesterday.... :( But we jut found 3eggs in the coop! Emily dropped one though, so now there's only two. They're so small! They fit on the palm of your hand. :) They was probably from Rosie though.

Sorry there's no pics. They were working.

Close your eyes....Picture a white egg you bought from the think of someone CHOPPING half of it off and painting it tan! There. That's what it looks like.

Bunny Nuggets!

I finished a Bunny Nugget a couple of days ago. OH, learned how to knit! Emily showed me how. :) I knew how to do the knit stitch, but a couple of weeks ago she showed me how to purl. And last week I figured out how to use DPNs and knit I-cord.

I'm making an another one with Homespun again.
