Craft Love

Seems my Buggernut wants to be like her mama in serious ways these days. The other day she asked for needles and knitting (her word for yarn)...of course, I jumped at that and cast on a few stitches for her on super huge needles. She sat for a while and played but she didn't want me to teach her the real way to knit. She kept saying...No mama, *insert her real name here* will do it. Apparently another trait I've passed on...being a big know-it-all and seriously independent. LOL!



In crafting news...the other night, my aunt, cousin and I went out for a Girl's Night. We had dinner at Sautee followed by pottery painting at As You Wish. Here's what I made...my very own ice cream bowl.




I like. Now everyone knows I have a "thing" for ice cream. I have to have it almost every night...now I have my very own bowl. Guess that means I shouldn't eat from the pint of Haagen-Dasz anymore, right? ;)

In knitting news, I've given up on the idea that I would finish the BSA Rectangle Shawl in time for The Mister's grandma's 90th birthday, so it's on the back burner for Christmas knitting. Really, I was sooo bored knitting this. It has a 10 row repeat but meh...there are so many other things I want to knit right now. Here she is stalled with about 2 balls knit with Louisa Harding Grace Wool-Silk.


Tomorrow, pics of Charade Sock #1 done and sock #2 on the needles.

That little Buggernut is so cute!!! Good for her for picking up the sticks at an early age.

Love the ice cream bowl - I'm an almost everyday ice cream freak myself - but you knew that.

Love her craftiness and being spunky. It comes with her age. DS#1 likes to "knit", which really means make knots out of everything he can find around the house.

OMG, that ice cream bowl is just amazing, are you going to make a whole set of them??

Just tried Breyers Fried Ice Cream, it is too die for.
