Knit Purl Pass Out. . . . .

So, I took my knitting to the yarn shop so I could get help putting it together. When I found out my knitting guage was totally off! I made my sweater much to small. My head won't fit my arms wont fit my chest wont fit! I was in shock for about 30 minuets. . . . yah. So, I have decided to tear it down and make a purse out of it :) I don't know when im going to do that but I will! Im still working on my knitted shorts and my sweater. I also started crocheting a very cute head band out of some great sock yarn. My grandma inspired me with a shawl shes making for my cousin.

When life starts to get you down, beging to lift up the name of Jesus. See how the troubles fade away. He gives us peace. Amen.

First Knitted Sweater!

Ok, I finally finished knitting! The pattern came out of a Better Homes and Gardens Learn to Knit book. Not very interesting looking but I decided to do it because it was easy and I wanted the practice. Tomorrow I will head down to the local Yarn Shop( and get help on how to put it together! Yahh! I love the color and the yarn. Its wool and its quite soft. I forgot what is was called but I will find out. Look at how it turned out! :) Tell me what you think!

It occurs to me that I have the most hyperactive dog in the history of all times. She always has her toy ball in her mouth as if she never sets it down. And each time she sees me she believes it time to play. I feel bad because she an outside dog and it’s been raining for the past two weeks but she has plenty of shelter under the porch and her huge dog kennel. When it gets warmer I will get her a new harness and we can take long walks at the park.
