Toying with my queue

I have just been browsing around Ravelry lately. I have seen a lot of toys that I think are cute. Too bad I didn't figure out that I like them a little earlier so that I could make some for Christmas!

Snowman ornament. I definitely want to make some of these for next year, along with some plain round ones.

One of my friends likes little monster creatures. I think I will still knit her some and send them to her.

I am getting a Nintendo DS for Christmas (I am a video game nerd... ;P) so I am going to knit one of these for myself!

Ah, the season of queuing continues...

Christmas Treats

We've been baking and wrapping and eating and watching movies all afternoon. Ahh Sundays! ^_^

Like DJ's apron? :P

Catching up with life

Oi! Finals are finally over! Now I can get back to life, and this blog!

My birthday was last Thursday, the fourth. I had two tests during the day, but DJ took me out for ice cream later that night. He's such a sweetie! ^_^ Then I had choir practice on Friday and afterwards had my fancy dinner with DJ's fam. We went to a really yummy Italian restaurant. My choir concert was Saturday. It was a lot of fun. We dressed up in Renaissance costumes. This is the only photo I have as of right now.

On Sunday I had my family party. I was babysitting the boys, so they got to come. We went sledding earlier that day and had a blast!

Earlier in the week last week I got a package from my Snack Swap Partner. Boy, did I feel spoiled! ^_^ She sent it in a yogurt box, which I thought was funny and went along with the swap well!

Now that I have time to knit (and breathe) again I have been working on DJ's mom's socks. I still have the second sock from that pair, the second sock from DJ's pair, and two scarves (one already started) to finish before Christmas day. I have more time to finish DJ's sister's socks because she and her husband are spending the holiday with his family in New York.

Whew! I think that's about all I have to catch you up on for now! I feel relieved!

P.S. I am watching Elf again... ^_^

Books, yarn, and sewing FOs

I very much needed to relax over Thanksgiving break. I was so happy to have time to do things for myself! DJ, my sister, and I went shopping on Black Friday and got some fantastic deals! I was able to find everything I set out to! Even though I went shopping, I still plan to give out some hand made Christmas gifts this year, and actually I have gotten quite a few completed.

My birthday is coming up this Thursday, so I thought I would treat myself to a couple of books I have been wanting.

I have also been wanting to make myself a couple of berets, so DJ bought me some yarn to do that (the reddish) and I bought myself the cream colored yarn.

And finally a few Christams gifts! These are for my three cousins. They are obsessed with the movie Cars. They are also (hopefully) getting a new playroom at their house, so I thought I would make some pillows to go in it. DJ's momma helped me. The front is the Cars fabric while the back is just plain black. Then she got the idea to make little zippered pouches with the leftovers. She's so creative! ^_^ There is one last square of fabric left that I thought we could frame and hang on the playroom wall.

P.S. I noticed that I spelled reddish like raddish, but I think it's funny so I will just leave it. ^_^
