Stuck on the needles. Hmph.


You see the problem? That yarn laying there should be connected to MORE YARN! Yesterday I went to four million craft stores and couldn't find another skein to save my life. Luckily I found some on the internet, but that means I'll have to wait....


While waiting I have:

:: Crocheted the flower -which may be a little too big and may make it hang funny, so it may come back off.
:: I've been rehearsing buttons -the vintage plastic ones are really speaking to me right now, but what color? Hmmm....
:: Looking for my next project on Crack-verly, I mean Ravelry - this one is making me smile. :)
:: Wondering why I just noticed today that you could friend people on Ravelry?? What?! Will you be my friend so I can see your projects too?
:: And in the words of my favorite cousin, Aimee, "Just tryin' to keep the piles of laundry under the windows so the neighbors don't see." Clean clothes are sooo overated.

More in progress pictures are bound to be coming soon, knitting, not laundry. Definitely not laundry.:) xo, Sam

I love the blue button.
I was in the middle of knitting a sweater when I ran out and couldn't find anymore like it!!! How frustrating. I ended up changing the pattern and incorporating another color. It worked, but it took forever to figure out what to do.

I think the tan button looks the best. :)

Love the sweater and like the blue button the best with the sweater. I really need somebody to teach me to knit and crochet!! I'm loving all your projects! I agree, clean laundry is totally over rated....I can never catch up!

You are just so funny. Your stiches are just gorgeous. I like the contrast of the blue button, but the tan might make it easier to wear with more colors. Glad you found more yarn!

Lovely work, I should get back to knitting. I knitted like crazy when I was pregnant with my 3yo and haven't since. Hopefully soon.
