new thoughts

well I've worked on my autumn scarf some more. man am I am a lazy bitch. haha. um. well I saw this topic on craftster and i HAVE got to make that. it's so beatiful. And here's the pattern except the I like the yarn the girl used on craftster. or well, something like that. It looks better on craftster then on the lana grossa site. so I'm going to have to find some good yarn subs. and the instructions kind of suck, i'll have to rewrite them to my liking. but I do that with every pattern lol!

I've also been thinking about entering in the amigurimi challenge on craftster. but the prizes kind of suck. I'd only do it for the free yarn. the pattern site, I didn't see anything I really liked. or, well anything I'd actually make.

and I'm also thinking about doing some swaps. Im interested in the adult swap rnd. 2. but the only things I'd come up with are stupid things like pin-ups. but there's a pinup swap. so it'd be pointless.

im really just waiting for a job with carle clinic to come through, so i can start buying things. but its not going to help me to have time to make things! ahh. i have a problem. but i need a job. like. im so bored.

ok well i looked at a bigger pic or that shrug, maybe that yarns not so bad. but haha. im sure its expensive. and like they even have it in the us anyway.

well, i guess that's about it.. yay.

its been awhile.

ok so I like totally forgot I had this thing.. haha. thats how bad I am about craft blogs. I usually just use my myspace. anyway I have been crafting, I added lots of stuff to my etsy. (my etsy) I really like the new etsy by the way! But a lot of my pics havnt shown up yet. and I dont think I have them anymore so I hope they fix them soon otherwise I dunno what I'm going to do. I'll have to take pics of everything again. that would totally SUCK. Ive started a few other scarves since Ive made the blue one on my etsy, too. Ones red and really soft and fuzzy. But I think I need to restart it, the tension is terrible. It's crochet.. and I was more of practicing then paying attention. Unless someone wants a scarf that is thin in some places and wider in others. haha. its not that in increasing or decreasing, I'm not. I'm just pulling tighter and looser. lol. I'm weird. And another scarf I started is a blue, purple, and white scarf out of some acrylic. but its really wide and has random stripes.. so I really like it and want to keep it for myself. But all my winter coats dont match it. so maybe I will sell it. but it will be awhile until i finish it. I tend to start one project and then start another. I'm terrible. My last scarf is with caron simply soft with some pretty variegated yarn in autumn colors. It's got green, blue, purple, gold, and red. Maybe some pics would be helpful. Lemme find my camera. I think that anyone (if anyone?) that reads this deserves to see some pics. OK I found it. Heres some pics.

This is the autumn one. It's in double crochet. My first time with double crochet! not bad, I think.

And another pic..

Just a few more pics of the autumn one. I LOVE the way the double crochet looks.

And here is the red, fuzzy, oddly shaped scarf. lol. You can really see the fuzzies in this pic. Doesnt it just make you want to reach out and touch it?

And here I pointed out where its wider and smaller.

EDIT! I forgot to add the pics of the purple, white and blue scarf.. DUH. its like the best one. well, not really. My fav is the autumn one. anywho.
