Before we left the house today to go to the LYS, I figured I should bring some money in case I see something. If I didn't I'm sure I would have regretted it!

While I browsing (which means grabbing every skein of yarn that looks soft and had a nice colorway) I saw some Malabrigo. And by the yarn there was a cowl knit in a single skein of mustard yellow Malabrigo. The pattern was written on the tag, so of course I had to have it! :) I ended up getting some Malabrigo of course to make the cowl I saw.

I can't wait to get started on it!

Comment-er number 4, Mrs.Adriana! Her comment was: I'm working on making all of Cheezombies patterns...I have made 6 of her designs so far and I have made multiples of the Garden Slug and Sheepish. Fabulously written patterns. Definitely a fan. :0)

This post if pretty random, but I thought I'd post about the sunset last night. It was so pretty!

The poll for the Cheezombie pattern ends in four days!

Last night, I came up with an idea to put old coffee cans together and mount them on the wall for storage. I took two big ones and a small one and glued paper on them, then glued them together. I decided not to mount them on the wall, but instead I put them in my bookshelf. I love how they turned out!

We have two more large coffee cans, so I'm thinking about doing something with those too.

Cheezombie Interview

I'm thinking about interviewing a designer every month. :) Let's see how long it'll last though.

I've recently asked a fellow designer, Cheezombie, if I could interview her on my blog. She said yes, so here it is! Cheezombie has some adorable (and even squee-dorable) amigurumi designs ranging from manta rays to veggies. And at the end, there's a giveaway! Info at the bottom.

(Click on each picture to view pattern page)

Me: Thanks for being here! How long have you known to knit and how did you learn?

CZ: Thank for having me :D I learned to knit about 10 years ago from a "Knitting for Dummies" book.

Me: What's your favorite yarn to use?

CZ: My absolute fave is hand dyed yarn I get from Aspen Moon Arts, but I'm a sucker for anything fuzzy or multi-colored too. 

Cheezombie 2012 (c)

Me: Do you have any other hobbies besides knitting?

CZ: Graphic novels (aka comic books). You never outgrow books with pictures.

Cheezombie 2012 (c)

Me: How many projects are you working on right now? 

CZ: I have a half finished Calavera Skull wall hanging, a third of a wonderful double knit rainbow scarf, parts of several fuzzy lobsters, and a few other things I can't think of right now. I always seem to be knee deep in UFO's! 

Cheezombie 2012 (c)

Me: Amigurumi seems to be your favorite thing to knit, but are there any other things you enjoy making?

CZ: I love trying new types of projects that use a new skill. Like right now I'm way into double knitting. I'm using DK techniques and following charts, both of which I've never really done before. 

Also, illusion knitting is awesome! It's so incredible how just some strategically placed purls cane make a hidden image! I just did a baby blanket that has a teddy bear on it if you look at it from an angle.

Cheezombie 2012 (c)

Me: What's your inspiration for your designs?

CZ: Cartoons. Caffeine. An overbundance of adorable pets. Spending waaay too much time on sites like lolcats and funnyjunk. Cake. Random images found while doing a completely unrelated Google search. 

Cheezombie 2012 (c)

Me: What's your favorite (okay, maybe top three) things you've knitted?

CZ: It's impossible to say, without risking a total plushie revolt at my house... (But Jumpy Jerboa just kills me with cute! Shhhh!)

Cheezombie 2012 (c)

Me: Do you think you'll take your knitting any farther in the future? Such as book, yarn, etc?

CZ: I would really like to create a hydrothermal vent soft sculpture covered in all the little (and big) critters that live there. It's so fascinating how so much life can thrive in the intense conditions. So I need to knit tube worms, furry lobsters, brittle stars, glass shrimp, snails...

Well, that's the interview! Thank you Cheezombie! Haha, I love where she gets her inspiration. :)  I realized that some of the questions are the same as another interview I saw. Oops. Also, check out the Slug Love group on Ravelry.

Now for the giveaway! Comment below saying what you love about Cheezombie's patterns. I love their eyes! On Saturday the 21st, I'll randomly select a winner, and they will get a coupon code to pick a pattern from Cheezombie's store!

I bet when you got on you wondered, "Is this still the same blog?" But it is.

There's been some big changes on here, like the name (I posted about it a couple posts ago) and now the background. Remember last time I said it was going to stay the same? Well, this time I'm keeping it like this.

Dishcloth Crazy

I took better pictures of the dishcloths today. :) Here's they are...

These are for selling. :)

The result of the poll is...

Clicking buttons is fun!

New Blog Name!

Yes, I changed the name of my blog. It used to be Abigail's Crochet World, but now it's Fiber Doodle thanks to the help of my sister. It's perfect, because it's not specifically knitting or crocheting, just fibers. And I love to doodle. :)

A couple cool things coming up are...

• And interview with a designer (not saying who yet)

• Sanitize! should be up soon

• And a cute header too!

And a shop is in progress!

Just thought I'd say that I started writing up the pattern for the hand sanitizer cozy tonight. :) It should be up soon!

Oh, and yes, I changed my blog again. It's going to stay like this for awhile though.

Project Attack!

Happy New Year! Can you believe it's already 2011 12?

On New Years Eve, we went to a yarn store named Twist in Kansas. While we were there I got three skeins of Cascade 220 in "Blue Hawaii" to make a sweater called February Lady Sweater. If you're on Ravelry, you've most likely seen it--it has 11,582 projects! So far I've done two repeats out of sixteen of rows 5 and 6.

Yes, those are crochet stitch markers on my knitting project. 

And I'm crocheting Citron using Noro Kureyon Sock I got for Chrismas. The colors are so nice! 

This one's pretty funny:

I crocheted a bracelet with licorice. 

Yes, I did. It was so funny! Who knew you could turn this...

...into this:

You can eat your yarn, and your project!
And the LAST topic of this post...

You know those little hand sanitizers you can buy at Bath and Body Works for a buck? Well, me and my sister might have one...

.... or three...or five...or seven.

And you know those cute little, rubber covers you can get for them?

Well, yesterday in the car, I crochet one! Not the hand sanitizer, the cozy.

I'm considering publishing this one. :)

It's so cute! 

Okay, I'm done rambling on with pictures and such like that. Happy New Year!
