Making a facebook page is turning out to be interesting...
You can find me on facebook at PostApocalypticSkills. Hopefully, I will get it all figured out sooner than later, and with less confusion than expected haha. The page is up and running, there just isn't much on it just yet.
Keep checking back though, I will be adding to it over then next little while, and as often as I have something new.

I haven't been on my blog in a few days.. mainly because I don't have any finished projects to show off and really don't know what to say...

Been in between projects the past month.. My brilliant kitty decided, after not playing with yarn for months, that he just had to and I wound up keeping a close eye on him for a little over a week... Trying to get a cat to pass yarn is one of the least desirable things I've had to do as of late. Thankfully though, after he went through about 3meters of yarn, he bounced right back and is one happy and frisky kitty. So happy he is OK... but really have to keep track of my yarn now.. Poor guy anyway.

Now, I sit... tossing around a few sock ideas that never get anywhere... I think I'm just going to have to leave it for a while. The more I try to get it figured out, the harder it is to get any ideas going. While I take a break from it, I've been working on a sweater for my daughter. It really was supposed to be a test run for myself before I run out and buy or spin yarn for it.. but she really liked the colour, and me, well lets just say I'd rather not hahaha. So it has turned into hers. Might just be done in time for spring, but the added length to the body and sleeves should be OK even by fall. Either way, she is excited about it, and I'm sure she will wear it till its busting apart or unravelling.

Just thought I would share a few things I've finished off since the last post... seriously not good at keeping up with this blog at all!

First of is some yarn... finally!! It feels like forever until you hang it up to dry... OK, maybe weeks. But really really happy it's done.. and still have my yellow/orange to finish too!

Next is a baby blanket, that I swore a blue streak that I would never make again... but I really wanted to make something both beautiful and special for my cousin. She just had her very first baby.. Congrats to her!! So excited for her!

And finally, a really pretty scarf/cowl... Just had to take a look at the knitting magazines the last time I was at the store, and found that pattern. Very cute/pretty and just had to make it... had some extra cotton yarn that I needed to use.. don't think I like cotton socks.. but hey, made a really cute scarf/cowl!

I wound up with 177yards and 95.5grams.

This was a gift for a cousin who had her very fist baby.
