Sick Days. Yuck. Whoever invented this food poisoning thing was a real jerk. I haven been watching X Files reruns till my eyeballs fall out....However, in between bathroom runs, here i am- finally having time to post, yay.

Sooooooo... Here are a few things i have been working on.

This baby kimono from the Mason Dixon book was awesome and super fast!

Of Course i have to give props to Stephanie for her amazing mattress stitch, and patience to show me how...once again.

I am a little lost on how to close it. Here you can see it with what i think i will go with...Buttons. But no promises yet. I wish i could figure out how to secure the ribbon ties, but my brain doesn't work that way, i guess.

I also volunteered to make a prize for our Irvine Knitting Meet up groups 1 year anniversary. BTW, the party was quite fun. We have some really great members that i have actually seen more then once and that is a cool deal. :)

Here are the stitch markers that i made:

I also recently went to the Yarn Lady Bag Sale...I spent $205-but i saved over 300!!! And isn't that what is important here? I got Silk, Merino and Thaki Cotton, some Noro, and some wool that should make a fun hat. Here's the take home:

I also got my Scarf from my ISE4 partner! It's awsome, take a look!

She's from Chicago. She sent me some lovely Chai Tea, and some bath bubbles!

And last but not least...........the Puppy.

Nick and i got a Little terror...i mean puppy. We named him Greenbean Helikopter ...Kopter for short.

He is a Lab-Akita Mix and is almost 5months. He's already over 25lbs!

So, having a puppy is a lot of work...

but here are some of the cute moments....
