But this won't happen again! I promise that I will post regularly and not slack. And I have a brain full of fun craft ideas that we can do together. Granted, I borrowed a few, for the most part they're all mine!
So we all know that I am a super geek. So a little hint of whats to come: Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Disney before it sucked, Halloween, and Christmas all year round! Okay, maybe not all year....but pretty soon!
Because, you know, I love Christmas.
So here's the deal. Once I get needles and yarn the next thing you want to do is find a good pattern. There are a lot of fun cute patterns but for some reason, craft stores are pretty much stocked with only afghans, hats, socks and anything baby related. So instead I check out the books on Amazon!
Like this one!
http://www.amazon.com/Charmed-Knits-Projects-Harry-Potter/dp/0470067314/ref=sr_1_29?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1316372942&sr=1-29 oooohhh yes, I really want it! It's an entire book of Harry Potter knit projects. You'd be crazy NOT to want it!
http://www.amazon.com/Creepy-Cute-Crochet-Christen-Haden/dp/1594742324/ref=pd_sim_b43 I am all about things that are super creepy and cute at the same time. Just ask my Cheshire Cat doll!
http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Christmas-Knits-Twenty-Make/dp/1844487229/ref=pd_sim_b1 It's little bitty snowmen. Need I say more?
http://www.amazon.com/Yummi-Gurumi-Gourmet-Crochet-Treats/dp/B004WB1A70/ref=pd_sim_b7 Maybe you really like food. Then this is a great book for you! There is also books that show you how to make fruit, vegetables and fast food...like pizza. I love pizza.
And just to prove that there is a book of knitting out there for everyone,
Twilight: http://www.amazon.com/Vampire-Knits-Projects-Knitting-Twilight/dp/030758660X/ref=pd_sim_b2 Just as there is a Harry Potter book of knitting, Twilight had to come along and do the same. Uh, whats that Twilight? Harry can't hear you over his THEME PARK!
The Royal Wedding: http://www.amazon.com/Knit-Your-Own-Royal-Wedding/dp/1449409245/ref=pd_sim_b6 I did not watch this. I did not care. I roll my eyes when I see Will and Kate on the covers of magazines. And I swear, if I hear the name Pippa one more time I might explode.
There really is something out there for everyone. So why aren't you knitting? Huh? Psh, loser.
Just kidding, I love you. I really do!
My Project is almost half way done! Yes! In other exciting news, I might get my wonderfully octagonal
friend Sammi to put together a knitting circle type thing. What are they called again? Anyway, do you think she'd go for a cool Harry Potter name? Because I've got a great one in my head!
