I have so many pictures I need to be taking. And I keep saying that. I was going to take some pictures tonite but its almost 1:30 now and I need to go to sleep since I have to get Lydia up for school in the morning. So I am promising myself right now that I will take some photos tomorrow. Remember, I promise. Ok.

I finished the little stuffed bug buddy for the baby shower my mom is going to. Well, I shouldnt say finished because he still needs his nose, eyes and 2 antennae. I dont think I like the construction of them though and I dont want them to be accidentally removed by baby. I need to think about how to revamp that part of the pattern. Then he will be done. But I dont have much time, it needs to be ready by sunday.

We finally have photoshop back so I need to be designing a new layout for yarnybits. I dont have much computer time as of late though so Im not sure how fast I will be doing that. I also need to buy the hosting plan so its not like I can even upload it right now if I did have it done.

I have so many projects going right now. I have Backyard Leaves from Scarf Style, Clapotis, a baby cardigan, and of course these are always put on hold by my love for spinning. I also really need to find a nice fast knit for my moms birthday. Her birthday is tuesday but the party isnt until the 19th. That gives me plenty of time if I can find the right pattern. I keep thinking a felted purse would be the perfect gift but I also keep thinking a wrap of sorts would be really nice too. But the wrap poses a problem in that I dont want to use acrylic for it and I dont have time to spin up 600 yards of worsted weight yarn, then knit and finish before the 19th. So it will probably end up being a felted purse since I already have a few very large skeins of romney that are absolutely PERFECT for felting. Anyone have any great felted purse patterns that work up fast? I would love to hear some ideas.

Ok, well, I need to get my butt into gear, email my friend Michelle and then hit the sack.. 6:45 will be here all too soon.

this is it!

Now I have the domain name, the livejournal username and the blogspot username. Im totally set.

I have a bunch of photos to take and upload. So much beautiful yarn to show off.

I need to buy some hosting and start pimping the yarn and head down to the local shops and spice it up a bit.

Im so in love with life right now. Everything is going great. I couldnt ask for anything more!

So welcome to my new blog and let me know if you read so I can read you back!
