Some new things...

A new look for the blog (which isn't finished yet) and a couple of new creations.
Had to show pics of a few things that I have been busy with the past few days. A cute little neck warmer and a pair of wrist warmers to match.

I've been wanting to make up a few patterns from some ideas that have been sitting around in my head. So the last few days have been spent putting things down on paper and working them out with the yarn. My idea is to sell them for a few bucks here and there. I will let you know when I get it all worked out. It will be soon!

So with those made, another idea will be started later today. More of a manly sort of thing. Hopefully it will turn out well.

First there will be some baking in the kitchen on a strawberry cheesecake for some one's 11th birthday tomorrow. Exciting but kind of hard to see my little one get another year older. It's a mom thing you know.
