Current Projects.

Since January I have been working on and off on knitting a blanket. Currently I am on try number 5 for this blanket and hopefully I will be able to finish it with the pattern that I am using for it. Tries 1 thru 4 involved knitting it with a couple different patterns and trying to crochet it. I only tried crocheting because I was bored one morning and didn't know what to do so I decided to teach myself, by watching you-tube videos, but it ended up not working out. So now I am back to kitting the blanket again. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of my past attempts but I did take pictures of the yarn being done into balls. My brothers were very helpful and willing in the winding endeavor.

Look the end is in sight!

This is currently what the blanket looks like right now, and hopefully it will stay that way.

Back in March I had acquired a boot box from Payless and decided to save it and paint it so that I could use it to put a gift in. I had painted the box not long after I got it and then I just finally got around to painting some designed on it and this is how it ended up.
