~ a machine knitted hat, crochet & football ~

I decided that I wanted to use the Vanna's Tapestry yarn that I bought at AC Moore to see how it would work up, so I pulled out my Innovations knitting machine to make a hat.
I only wanted to make a regular size hat, but I got a little carried away and made a slouchy hat.
I don't like it much on me, so I turned it into a preemie size baby cocoon.

I actually like working with the Innovations knitting machine even though it does have one needle that gives me trouble.  
I have marked that needle with a Sharpie marker.
I wind the handle slowly and when that certain needle comes around I stare at it like a hawk.  If it catches the yarn the wrong way, then I fix it and all is good.


Here's a new scrap granny that I'm working on.  It will most likely be a lapghan for me or a baby blanket.

This cute little hat will be for my (soon to be) granddaughter.
The 1st hat I crocheted for her will be too big for a few months at least, so I made this one a little bit smaller.
The colors match the grey and white ripple I crocheted for her a few months ago.

 This is my grandson Will (#61) at his Bowie High School football game yesterday.
He mostly stands on the sidelines because the Seniors get to play the most.  I don't like that.  It doesn't seem right to me.
(But what do I know - I'm just his Yaya.)
I guess it will be alright though - all the boys that are on the sidelines this year will be Seniors next year, so they will be the ones playing the games then.

Bowie Bulldogs - 24
Roosevelt Raiders - 33

Have a great day - see ya next time.  :)

~ yarn, crochet & plastic canvas ~

Hi everyone - I hope all is well and that you're staying dry in this wet weather.
Vince and I were out yesterday running errands - he needed to go to Sears to buy some tools, so I had him drop me off at AC Moore first.  I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy wandering around looking at tools.
I bought yarn (of course) that I really don't need, but what the hey.  The 2 mill-ends bags were $6.99 each, and the Vanna's yarn was 2 for $5.00.  I had a 25% off coupon too so that made it even better.

I used 2 strands of bulky yarns and a P hook to crochet this flower pot cover.  I have it turned upside down so I could put this mini orchid on it.

 I have started working on a scrap yarn granny square.  I'm thinking it will be a lap blanket.

I made another pill bottle cover in plastic canvas.  This picture is when I'm about half way done.

And here it is complete.  It will be kept in my craft bag.

My son graphed out this Pokeball for me so I could make him a coaster.  It was very quick and easy to do.
Plastic canvas is great for these types of projects.

Well, that's it for now.  Have a great day, and I'll see ya next time.

~ miscellaneous stuff ~

Tuesday was Grandparents Day at James' school.
I had a nice time watching James and the 4th grade class singing a song for all the Grandpa's and Grandma's.
We then went to his new class to see the kids in action.

James was thinking about something.  Probably what he could get himself into without getting into trouble.  :)

This little bad girl is on my poop list.
She killed a baby bunny that was in our yard.
I'm glad I wasn't home when she did it.
Bad girl Ladybug!

This beautiful quilt was created and gifted to me by the talented Niki.
Thank you so much!  I absolutely love it.

Just a small haul from the Tuesday Morning store:
glitter markers and 3 ball chain necklaces.

Thanks for dropping by -
have a great day.  :)
