What I have been making lately…

And by lately I mean this past year, way before I thought about  making this blog. It’s been a long day , I have been attacked by bumble bees again, but I survived, and I can’t hate them,they are so chubby <3.  I also had a snickers ice cream bar ( that things is only sold in ONE store over here) and had cookies, I’m getting fat, I have to work out… >_>

Anyway, I went to Irma’s house yesterday, actually, I just didn’t told you… I’m sneaky like that. She is a very nice old lady who  has fed me when I needed it the most, sometimes when I don’t at all, she gives me a good talk and calls her self my fake mommy. Her house is way better lighted than mine, aside that mine has no decor what so ever and is messy and its n a quite ugly state, since we have been four people living here for the past month, all working all day.

So yeah,  I took pics of the projects  that are still in my possession, most of my stuff gets given away or, well lost in moving and such, I’ll show you what I’ve got… (excuse the terrible pictures I was being a bit pressured)

This blanket is for my friend Zu’s baby, Nerea, I just have failed to deliver it…  I made one of this sort for Mia, Liliana’s  toddler,  but I can’t seem to find it. It needs some blocking  but for now I really lack the space.

These are cushions based on a parttern by Alice at Crochet with Raymond, from the bunting tutorial, go have a look , link at the  left.

Same story here, just better pictures,  the  true rainbow one is  for Jesh’s mom and the other one is mine.

This shawl, scarf things, that yarn is gorgeous,  GORGEOUS  I tell you… My mother always asks me why  I can’t take one  serious picture… 8D! (God, I look tired.)

God I suck at taking pictures. Anyways, I made this just to try out Attic24’s granny stripe pattern, I can’t be bothered today to link into the post, my computer is being prissy,  but go to her link on the left. 

Irma modeled it!!!!!

This scarf, worked in trebles in a very soft blend… unknown fiber tho, was made to match…

THIS. It’s a bear hat, it has ear flaps and pompoms to tie it up,  I’ll be sharing the pattern soon. This was made for celeste, she also wants dinosaur spikes… which I have made, but not all fo them and I’m too lazy about it >_>.

And finally this, this is gonna be a cover for my bed, inspired by the awesome gypsy caravan bed cover by Alice ( big fan ).  50 something squares of 816,  and I’m being quite neurotic about it… Don’t have time for it since I’m in x-mas present euphoria.

I failed to have a decent picture of my sock monkey hat and he has no ears yet, I’m not gonna show him in shame. 

Also I’m knitting my frist hat, we will see about that…. humf!

Love and  Granny Squares,

The day the bugs attacked and a cowl for Liz

Reading:  Sourcery -Terry Pratchett’s Discworld

Listening: Autumn Leaves ❤

Making: Queen Anne’s lace Scarf for Fanny.

Today my alarm clock didn’t go off… but I never manage to be late for work really,  or for anything, I’m that neurotic about it, I have my father to blame for that one.  I had to take a cab to the office since my two buses were not going to take me there on time, I usually talk to cab drivers, but this one was quite happy with letting me read. 

We got there and I stopped by the store quickly, got a juice and some peanuts, said hi to Manuel the very serious sausage puppy and the two cats I always see in on my way, opened the gate and walked towards the sliding glass door, I look up and BAM!!!!! a spider as big as my hand… I screamed in terror, my boss and co-worker could not believe the size of the thing. 

We managed to set it free somewhere very far away from the office. I still get chills thinking about it,  we got pictures first and If my co-worker (aka teddy-bear) sends them to me I will be posting to share the terror.  I’m usually ok with spiders,  but I can never be ok with something that big and evil looking, seriously it was like She the spider’s baby…

Also I got attacked by pissed bumble bees and a bird that went into my house for no reason what so ever and got out on his on with very suspicious ease….

Moving on…

My roomie Liz is moving next month to Guadalajara, which is quite far away from where we live now,  and I decided to hook her up a quick present, Guadalajara is colder so she will be able to  wear it.  Since here in  Horncow ( the actual name is Cuernavaca, but hell, its funnier in english.)  we have crazy weather, I mean, it just rained… in autumn…wtf… and it’s hot all day long.

So here it is,  she was nice enough to model it for me.

I was very happy with the result and it was quite easy to make, I made a chain until I was happy with the length then,  round of hdc, round of dc, round of trbl, round of dc, round of hdc and so on and so on, also I always buy varicoloured yarn and I never know what to do with it,  this one  was very soft and she liked it very much, it’s made so she can tuck it into her jackets. 

I also finished the poke-ball scarf for the miniature critic, I’ll be posting about it tomorrow, if  I don’t get eaten by a donkey or something of the sort… as things are going it seems perfectly plausible. 

Love and raid spray,

Didi Starfish.
