Legwarmers

During my month or so of break, I had wanted to make wrist warmers.  I had finished a couple pairs of these, when I had the idea of making a pair of legwarmers for myself.  I looked around on ravelry (a great site to find crochet and knitting patterns), but the only patterns that I thought were cute were designed for infants, and I didn't feel like trying to adjust anything.  So I set out on an adventure all it's own.  Making my own legwarmer pattern.  It did take around 7 times of me taking out and re-knitting 15 or so rows, until I figured out a sufficient increase for them.  Here are pictures of the legwarmers, and following those, the pattern that I used.  If you need anymore information about them, you can e-mail me :)








Enjoy your day!

New Years Eve and New Years!

For New Years Eve, I had a friend over, and we just. . . well had lots of fun.  Playing games and watching videos (i.e. Dr. Who and Psych. . .)
Andrea and I (new years eve)
the amazing pretzels ;)
New Years Day we had our aunt and uncle and cousins over.
Olivia cut and fancied the Pinnapple

Then we tried to make Ollie Bollen. . . and they turned out as literally their name as they could be.  Oily Balls. . . . . .



Still, It was work the try, and now we know what to do and . . . . what not to do.

More Christmas postings. . . :)

Here are just a few pictures from Christmas. . . The tree, Stollen, and the table/food :)
