Nothing Says Love Like "Serial Killer"

My sister was born the day after Halloween so it generally makes sense to get her a gift that she can use for the aforementioned holiday. Hence the "Jackyll & Hide" mask from Knitty.

I couldn't wear this mask for long to take pictures because wearing it made me claustrophobic. Little did I know that this shot I took (right before I ripped it off my head) would land me in the Flickr Explore Page. Sweet.

I've also mostly completed my crochet flower scarf. Just need to weave away the ends. You can also see my Pirate flag temp tat courtesy of the Texas state fair. Where else can I get my fix of fried alligator, fried cookie dough, and funnel cake? I'm going to miss it.

Hooking on the Streets

You can now find me hooking on street corners. Or at least on benches during my lunch break from work. I recently learned the art of crochet and have completed my very first project. I’d like to thank Petra for taking the time to show me what’s what with crochet.

I did the Stripes & Stripes scarf from Debbie Stoller’s “Happy Hooker” with Paton’s SWS yarn. I love how the color changes look with the pattern. Now I just need to find a saucy hat pattern to go with this.

I started this at the Knit Out but decided that it really would look better in multiple colors rather than just white. It made for excellent practice though.

This was a hat that I started but I may frog the thing. I’m not really feeling the bobble stitch despite how cute it looks in the pictures. I’ll let it stew awhile and revisit this later.

Free stuff! I won this lovely door prize at the KO&C2. Very nice.

A tiny little pink pimp coat for a very special Barbie. Hopefully I can get a picture of her wearing it because it’s pretty swank on her.

Please excuse me a minute while I try to steal your soul.

The Bzzzz hat from Stitch n Bitch nation done in Noro Kujaku. I knit it too large so it will have to be resized later.

For my birthday a friend took me to the Ritz-Carlton for brunch and I was presented with a lovely bouquet of roses and a pregnant armadillo whom I named Armo. Watch as Armo’s baby pops out Alien-style.
