I’m hooked

My friend Karrie at http://www.knitpurlgurl.com has the best knitting blog. While I am not a dedicated knitter, she has inspired me to learn.

Karrie also does a bevy of product reviews. This week she reviewed some crochet hooks – Karrie is a beginning crocheter with more talent in her little finger. If she says the hooks are good, you better believe it!

Take a moment and check out her review – http://www.knitpurlgurl.com/2011/09/knitters-pride-crochet-hook-review.html While there, you can enter her give away for the hooks!!!!

It’s Fair Time

It’s Fair Time

No, I will not shock you with the oddities that we saw at the fair. Just imagine no teeth, poorly done tattoos and clothes WAY too tight- Welcome to the Wayne County Fair!

I did enter several things into the fair this year. I received 2 second place ribbons- one for my sweater and one for my knit purse – my first (and only!) knitted item. Below is the sweater and the dino hat I put in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also sent 2 new hats to my photographer, Meg Bowman Photography. I already have one order for the apple hat and a great suggestion to make an acorn hat. On top of all that, I just got a new order for an adult dino hat in the person’s high school colors!  I am hoping that it comes out well – that might be another item to add to the etsy store!
