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.

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.
