I discovered a new interest...Knitting....The "Knifty Knitter" round looms are FUN!!! EASY to knit too...Heres a few projects I've done!! On ALL the projects I doubled the thread.
The knifty knitter comes with 4 looms- the yellow one is missing(I'm working on a project) and the blue one is missing my son is working on a project.

first hat with green loom(a little snug)

2nd hat with yellow loom(perfect fit!)

I then went to this link and made this

Hooded scarf...LOVE IT!!!!

I found the flower loom and made these.

I made these booties from this link, except I didn't fold it up to form a band. I just kept going then folded it over when I was done. These are SUPER EASY!! their shaped like tube socks.

These booties I made up myself. I casted on the pegs on the flower loom as if working on a flat piece. I pearled a row then working back I knitted a row. I think they call this the GARTER stitch. I did this for 35 rows then closed it up like the booties above.

I did the headband from the flower loom too. I wrapped 4 pegs and working back and forth. I knitted a row and pearled a row till it was 12" long then sewed the ends together. Made a flower from the loom and sewed it over the seam.

The baby booties and headband are for a co-worker. I'm going to present them to her like this....
It's one of those paint cans you can get at your LSS. I lined it with paper and the baby is from the Everyday Paperdolls cart. and the lettering is from Gypsy font.

THANK YOU!!! for standing by while I explored a new hobby!!!LOL

My cricut is EXTREMELY JEALOUS and I have neglected him long enough...I better get started on my Valentines projects......ROTFLOL!!!!

Belated Thank You for co-workers

Some co-workers did some Thoughtful things for me over the holidays so I made them these cards. I made the nurse from Everyday paperdolls cart. cut at 4". I used SU cs: Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Whisper White, Blush Blossom, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Grey(LSS). I used Justrite stamps 6pt font to stamp the clip board and the RN on the 2nd uniform. (DX-stands for diagnosis). Peachykeen stamps for the faces. Oh and I used SU Real Red marker to color the cross on the cap and Basic Grey marker to color the tip of the needle. On the second card I punched the edges with the Scallop border from SU. Her SUPER SIZE BOSS clipboard is a joke we have with each other. The nurses were SUPER PLEASED with the cards.
