Crocheting progress

So, I finished my first attempt at the iPod sock, but it was totally not even, so I make it into a small purse for my 6-yr-old to play with.

I started a new one and followed the pattern (basically 14 rows of hdc). However, the yarn I’m using is to as thick so, of course, my finished rectangle was about 2 inches too short. So, I decided to make it a sock for my Rio instead. It was a little short, so I did three rows around the top, which looks kind of cool. All in all, I’m pretty happy.

I’m going to learn the double and triple crochet next and maybe use those to make my son a scarf. Have some nice blue yarn to use for him.

Once I get the stitches down, then I’ll try another go at the iPod sock using the fancy yarns I have.

Will post photos later.

I crocheted this scarf! I made Bailey a pink one from a “learn to crochet” kit, but this is the first scarf I crocheted from “fancy” yarn. It’s really toasty and totally beautiful.

I started crocheting an iPod case the other day. After unraveling it for about the fourth time, I finally got a good start on it. I’m doing a new stitch, so I’m pretty excited. I’ll post photos once it’s done.

Of course, I had to send my iPod back to Apple to be fixed. All of a sudden, all I can see is the Sad iPod icon. 🙁

I miss my camera phone!

I got a great new phone — Blackberry 7100t. It does a lot that the old Motorola v551 didn’t do, like get my emails and browse the internet. But I really miss having my camera phone. I’d gotten used to being able to take quick photos and send them to myself, friends and/or family.

My happy pair outside the Tybee Lighthouse. Jesse and BopBop went up to the top of the lighthouse. It’s about the last time Jesse will get to ride Bop’s shoulders to the top.

Notice the missing teeth on my chickadee!
