WIP it…

8 Mar

So, when I started this pattern, which will eventually be a light-weight spring shrug,

I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS MADE ENTIRELY OF SINGLE CROCHETS.

 

pretty, but time consuming.

Granted, they’re back post single crochets, so they’re, uhm, .00002 % more challenging than regular single crochets, but the lesson here, people, is this:

READ THE WHOLE PATTERN BEFORE YOU START THE PROJECT.  If you don’t, your coffee table will look like this forever

 

blarg.

And even though you work on it every night, the world will probably end before your shrug makes it to the 38 inch length your pattern calls for.

 

Just sayin.  *grin*

Anthem

10 Jan

No, not the Ayn Rand kind…

 

…the Laurie Berkner kind!  A client of mine back in Pittsburgh used to sing this song to me all the time (usually when he was supposed to be doing something unpleasant like washing his hands or learning to write his name), and I have since adopted it as my theme song.  Hooray for songs that grown ups *and* kids enjoy!

Listen to it for free on Rhapsody!

Here are the lyrics:

I’m not perfect, no I’m not
I’m not perfect, but I’ve got what I’ve got
I do my very best, I do my very best
I do my very best each day
But I’m not perfect
And I hope you like me that way

We’re not perfect…

You’re not perfect, not you’re not
You’re not perfect, but you’ve got what you’ve got
You do your very best, you do your very best
You do your very best each day
But you’re not perfect
And you know
I love you that way!

And here’s a link to Laurie’s website (OMG!  She’s coming to DC!  Quick!  I need to borrow somebody’s kid so I can go to the show without looking weird!)

Happy Weekend Bug!

25 Sep

How can you not have a happy weekend after looking at this adorable little friend?  His name, in case you were wondering, is Frank  (although he sometimes goes by Horatio).  I don’t know why – that’s just what he told me!  })i({

Awww, How Cute Is That?

23 Sep

Check out the cuteness:

I’m sure you know some tiny girl who wants to wear this pretty little necklace!  Methinks it would also make a great bookmark, just in case you really *really* want to make it but can’t bring yourself to wear a yarn necklace because yarn necklaces are only for kindergarteners.  Not that those were my thoughts when I made this.  Nope.  Not even a little.

The pattern is called the Algerian Love Knot, and was designed by Nichole Verville.  You can find the *free* pattern here. Thanks, Nichole!  })i({
