day with sisters

Spent the day with my sisters! We got together to do some crafting....some of us did more crafting than others. :)

Which, funnily enough, brings me to my next favorite thing in the whole wide world...sisters!

We met up with some friends at Mike's Chili Parlor in Ballard, recently featured on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives." Mike's would have to fall into the "dive" category. But in a good way.

things I am obsessed with, continued

I had a little trouble with my last post. You see, when listing "Things I am Obsessed With," I could really go on forever and ever and ever....because I love a lot of things. Isn't life great? So I decided that in each post I will focus on one thing I really really love. That should last a long time. I might as well start at the top of my aforementioned list...

Topic #1:

Knitting is the greatest. You know something is good when you'd rather do that thing than go outside on a nice day. ( this a red flag?) My sisters make fun of me a lot for my knitting obsession. I usually have a couple of projects going at a time. Like right now, I'm knitting a baby sweater, a sweater for myself, and a hat for little Lucy (one of the cutest babies of all time). The problem is that knitting takes a long time, and anothing thing I'm really into is instant gratification. Hmmm... hence the sewing.

The sweater I'm knitting is a Zephyr girls is really cute in the picture--I can only hope it really does turn out that cute. Take a look at the professional pic!

In the genre of knitting, here are my favorites:
Debbie Bliss patterns and yarn
Louisa Hardig
Zephyr Girls
Takumi bamboo needles

I've been searching and searching for a knitting pattern for a hat with a brim*...for an adult. (That one is crocheted.) Anyone? Anyone?

*If you love this hat as much as I do, go to: pdxbeanies's etsy store to see more!

Things I Am Obsessed With

Here is a list of things I am obsessed with:
1. Knitting
2. Sewing (in particular, Amy Butler)
4. My nephew Oliver

In that order. Just kidding, Oliver would come under "knitting." ha!

So, really, I am obsessed with crafting. It's all I want to do, all day long! I started my etsy store about a month ago...and I'm signed up to do three craft fairs in December! Sooo...I'm a little busy. Go see my store! I'm in love with it.
