I am an old lady

Seriously I am.  Either that or I have many talents that should not be wasted.  You be the judge.  My friend Katie first taught me how to crochet when we were in high school.  I started a quilt, which is #1 obviously not done and #2 I cannot for the life of me find it.  Maybe my mom knows where it is….

After I learned to crochet, I made a LOT of scarves.  They sucked; honestly they were stiff, and ugly, bleh.  But at the time I thought they were awesome and gave them to my future in-laws as Christmas gifts, why they still accepted me into the family I don’t know.

In college, I found another “old lady” friend, Brenda.  Sophomore year we lived across the hall from each other and soon discovered that we were destined to be best friends.  On a typical Saturday night, you would find us sitting in my dorm room, knitting, watching chick flicks (most likely crying), and eating tons of pizza. *That was living*

Over the years (seriously I am not that old), I have toyed with knitting here and there and made a few scarves.

There were some good ones, and some that were so bad I did not want to finish…

That scarf was promised to my friend Kelly in college, but I did not like the stitching so I stopped working on it, but never fear my friend, I have found a stitch I like, and will be finishing this scarf ASAP.

The scarf above was just ugly so I stopped working on it, haha. Maybe it would be good for a little girl.. hmmm… anyone have any little girls that like pink?

I also made this AWESOME Hokie scarf!

But lately, under the helpful wing of my amazing momma, I learned a new stitch.

This is my newest scarf, I love the color and I love the way it looks.  I finished it last night and I am SO happy with it.. onto my next project 🙂

I went to Michael’s yesterday and bought a lot more yarn…

to add to my already ridiculous amount of yarn..

I might have a problem.

I took my purple scarf over to our friend’s house on Wednesday night, and received some very positive reviews, so I have been toying with the idea of opening an Esty.com store 🙂 I am nervous but I really want to do it.

Old lady, or just crafty?- I think a little bit of both…My friend Jenny told me she would stab me in the eye with my knitting needle if I brought it over to a football watching party…love her.

    At this stage in the game, I’d say crafty, but don’t you go listening to oldies, watching Lifetime movies, or stealing sugar packets from restaurants.

    I’m famous! Omg that one picture makes me look pretty crotchety (omg if you take out the t in that its crochet-y)

    No way old lady! I actually maybe had more yarn but picked out my favorite and gave the rest to my mom to sell at a yard sale. Love your new scarf! Knit purl knit purl!

    I’ve gotten into needle felting…. I dye my own raw wool and everything…. its scary!!!
