Fat Bottom Bag - Finished. I just need to weave in the ends. Oh yeah and I need my handles lol I ordered them like 8 or 9 days ago from eBay and haven't gotten them yet. I'm not sure if I will use the dark brown 6 inch pair or the bamboo 5 inch pair. The color is actually a little off in this picture. It's darker, the yarn is Lion Brand Suede in Denim.

First My Yo Yo's :) Woo Hoo I have 289 done so far :)

Second a Spiral Scarf for Mil made from left over yarn Lion Brand Homespun (dark purple) and TLC Amore (pink)

This is a scrap scarf I made from little pieces of yarn that i tied together. The pattern was really simple. I started with a chain to the thickness that I wanted it Plus an extra 3 chains (counts as first DC). Row 1: in the 4th chain from the hook DC, DC in next chain, *chain 1, Skip 1 chain and DC in the next chain* repeat from * to * across with 1 chain remaining and DC in the last chain.
Row 2: Turn, Chain 4 (counts as first DC and chain 1), *Skip 1st stitch, DC in next stitch, chain 1*, repeat from * to * across DC in last DC. Row 3: Turn, Chain 3 (counts as first DC) *DC in next stitch, Chain 1, Skip 1 DC*, Repeat from * to * across 1 DC in each of last 2 DC's. Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you reach your desired length and bind off and weave in ends.

This is a scarf I made for myself. I found the idea in a post on Craftster. All it is, is a bunch of long pieces of yarn that i knotted together and then braided and knotted at the other end. Really simple Only took maybe a half hr to make :)
I just made these 2 necklaces for my nieces. The picture is kind of bad but I need to redo them so I will get a better picture when I remake them. I'm worried because they are a little small and I want them to be able to wear them for a while.

Lots of stuff finished!!! Partially because I've been crocheting a lot partially because I'm really bad at keeping up with my blog lol.

First a not so short "Short and Sweet" from the Happy Hooker Book. It's my first sweater and I made it for myself but it's a little to big for me ... I'm not really lovin it on me. I will probably give it as a gift for christmas next year

This is a scrap scarf I did for my mom, not the best picture but alas I already gave it to her so I can't take another.

Another Scrap Scarf this one is for my aunt :)

I'm still working on an afghan for my sister and a spiral scarf for MIL. Gavin wants me to make him a sweater vest from the Candy Tot's book for which I just ordered the yarn from Knit Pick's last night, so I will be starting on that very soon :)
