Fun....

Jimmy and I decided to have a fun day on Groundhog day. We returned his Wii game to Blockbuster...then went to Petsmart for some big doggy food and treats for Fuji...mosied on over to Target because he wanted to look at Neopet cards....then our big destination, Barnes and Nobles. We spent so much time and had so much fun in there. He chose a Garfield comic book and I sat and looked and looked and looked at knit/crochet books. He read a good quarter of the book before we went to the magazine section. I have to tell you though the magazine section suckerood for the knit/crochet magazines...all they had was Interweave Knit! This is a huge store and that's all they had! Soooooo of course we had to go to Michaels because I could feel the coupon in my purse saying "use me!" Guess what? They had some knit/crochet magazines! Also got some stuff to make crochet stitch markers...I didn't have any..I either use scrap yarn or a safety pin! Of course some yarn jumped into the cart! Then we went to another Target because the one we went to didn't have what he was looking for...found those and I also found a fabric shaver...boy does it really get the pills off felted things! Then we went home and had some lunch. All the while he was reading his new book in the car...he's already half way done! That might mean another trip to Barnes and Noble!:) The yellowish yarn is to crochet myself a cowboy hat out of the Happy Hooker book. The blue yarn is to design my grandma something special for her birthday. She'll be 90 this year and also she's the one who taught me to crochet so thought it'd be perfect to make her something. Her birthday is the same day as mine! Hope I live as long as her...she's healthy as a horse too! She still drives, crochets, goes to church, goes to friends and plays cards or do each others hair, walks and takes care of her plants. Would never know she's that old!:) How great is that!

These are the crochet stitch markers I made! A lot prettier than scrap yarn, huh?

Today is a not so fun day....the second half of the root canal. At least I'll have some cool magazines to read while I'm waiting to numb up! Although I might get so nervous I bend the pages...that would be tragic! Wish me luck!

Those look like they could be earrrings. I use those little plastic round things for knitting; not sure I've ever used one when I crochet...maybe I just have used yarn pieces too, now that I think about.

I know what you mean when yarn jumps into your cart. You've got no control over such happenings. lol

Stop in for a vist,
Sandy

Those stitch markers are really sweet! I also do beading, and I like to make knitting/crocheting jewelry (:)

Those are really nice markers. I seem to lose my markers a lot. Maybe I should try some like those. I hope you tooth is feeling better soon.
