My new hooks

I received my hooks last night!I was a little disappointed because I really wanted a purpleheart one. It will give me an excuse to get one from TOTC.

5mm Canadian birdseye maple

6mm Canadian black walnut

7mm padook, african orangewood

I already made a slipper with the 6mm and I really like working with it.

And I am really happy I can share that with you with picture now!

Hat Swap and Crochet along

I finish my hat for the swap last night. Actually, I finished it a while back but I wanted to make something else to go with it and add a little of my hometown. So here it is I have my entire package ready. I will go to the post office at my lunch break to send it. I think it is pretty cute… Shout! I just realised, I forgot to take a picture of it! Ok so what I will do is get the whole package ready with the stamps and all so I can send it tomorrow without having to go back to the post office but I can bring it back home to take a picture… I need to develop the reflex to take picture of my work.

I started over my baby afghan last night witht the new pattern. I realised that it is the third time that I am doing that with the same yarn but I keep on starting with a new ball. So three beginnings and three broke into balls… Got to look at the good side, the yarn end is found!

Busy and expensive weekend

In my last post, I was whining about a digital camera. So on Friday, I did my homework, found a few models that I liked and discuss with Mike about buying. Saturday, we got it! I am so excited, I am still working on learning how it works but I should have some pictures soon.

I was taking a picture of my baby ripple afghan when I realized that I must have forgot a few stiches because it is not straight on one side. I will have to start all over but with the tip that Andrea gave me, I am looking forward to try it... But I am also thinking of changing my pattern to this one...

I finished the hat for the swap but I want to add something with it. I can't just send that! I will be working on that too... but tonight I have Tai-Chi so not too much time for crochet

Last night's work

I started my baby cover for the ripple along (crochetville), my first . Unfortunately, the yarn is driving me crazy, it is Bernat LULU in Snowball and Busy blues. I can't see my stitches... I have to "feel" it. The first row is the worst the following ones are easier... a new skill to acquire needs patience; crochet with closed eyes!?! I will have to do it a few times since I have to work 6 to 8 strips.

It will be so pretty is worth going crazy.

Another thing that is driving me crazy is that I don't have a digital camera. I wish I could share more of my work include it in my blog and in crochetville . I am very tempted to buy one but they are pretty expensive and which one to pick... I will have to start shopping inquiries on Digital cameras.

I finish another Hat for Mike last night, it is a success more than the last one which was too big. He likes it, the fit, the feel and the look . I am so happy that he is wearing something I made... I wish I could show you the results...

I am a godmother

My sister called last night, she had something special she wanted to ask me. She wants me as Jasmine's godmother... as a second godmother, she will have 2 godmothers and no godfather; the big sisters of both parents. Now then I am thinking about it maybe I should have proposed that they take my brother so Jasmine gets a godmother and a godfather but she would not have been spoiled the same way since he is always broke... but that might have made him more dependable though... anyway, I said yes so it is too late now.

I will ask my sister if she would like me to make a Baptism gown, maybe this Christening Dress, I don't know if she is into that.

I changed the links in my previous post so you can see Jasmine and the dress I made for her. Have a look!
