Texas LongHorns Game day Hat

I finished my Texas Longhorns game day hat :) I can't wait till the game tomorrow !!! Hook em Horns..
I used a pattern from Raverly called Ohio State Superfan hat and it went really quick. The yarn is crappy acrylic since that is all I could find in the burnt orange for the UT color. I so need to learn how to dye yarn already..

Another Mail Man Delivery Today

Can you believe how pretty my new Namaste Malibu bag is!!!! It came today and I just feel in love with it from first touch. It is big and room and soft and squishy. Look at it next to my Zuma... I love both these bags so much that I just might get another I think Namaste has a new bag whore on their hands peps..

Someone asked wanted to know about the Zuma here on my blog and so I will do a little feed back on it since I have been using it for almost a week. It is perfect for a light go anywere bag. I have my wallet,camera,Itouch,notepad,knitting bag with all my have to have items and 2 knitting projects in it. The knitting projects are a pair of socks and a pair of mittens. There is plenty more room in the bag,but the point of me buying this was to cut down on clutter and to have a light bag to run around town with.

After I use the Malibu for a week or so I will do another review :)

Mail Man Delivery Today

Look what I just got in the mail :) Its my new Namaste Zuma bag. I'm so excited. Can't wait to fill it up with my yarny goodness .

Exciting Day

Have to say Happy Fall to everyone first ;) this is my favorite month out of the whole year because it is cooling off , the leafs are changing and Halloween is coming up fast. Oh, and my birthday is coming on the 29th. So strange that I am going to be 41 in a couple of weeks. Anywho on with all the news.
Yesterday I got out and ran around town since I am 100% over being sick and just had to get out of this house. I went to the mall looking for a orange skin for my blackberry which none of the stores had. Then I went to Red Lobster with my honey for lunch. Had the Salmon which was
great. Then I went to Barns & Nobles to check out some books and ended up getting the new issue of Interweave knits , 2010 Hello Kitty Calendar and the book Dark Visions . Then I was off to my LNS to look at yarn. I ended up with 4 skiens of sock yarn and wanted whole lot more but money, money, money.. what a great day I had just being out and about in the world.

This is my fire place . Not much going on here just some fall candles and leafs.

The Living room table with its little piece of fall and the laptop of coarse.
A close up of the Liquor jar with a candle in it, lol. Thought it would take me back to the days of being in Louisiana.
Here is my Dinning room table. How do you like the mason jars I used as candle holders :)

I try and do this on all the holidays because its just fun. I do the two tables because it just is the 2 places we spend the most time and its the first thing you see when you come into the house.

Happy Fall Everyone :)

Bella's Glove

Well these gloves for the little one and I mean little one are proving to be really hard. The problem is that cheyanne has doll hands and I am trying everything to get these things to fit her. I was holding 2 stands of worsted weight yarn together using size 8 needles and there was no way it was going to fit her. Then I went down to a size 6 needle and there was no way i could do the cable portion of the pattern because the yarn was way to stiff. So I dropped one of the yarns and kept the size 8 needles and I don't think that is going to work @! so frustrating trying to make these just right for her. I really wish I was one of those people that could make anything work and knew how to do it all. Maybe one day when I grow up I will know how to do it all ;)

Onward I go in the weight loss journey. I have not been able to walk in a week because I have been so sick with this sinus infection and horrible congestion and cough ,but I have been watching what I am eating and I got on the scales today and I have not lost anything but I am still at the 5.5 lbs weight loss. So I am not going to complain. I had a great weight loss buddy that I made via the internet but for some reason she is no longer around and it makes me really sad. We had great conversations and shared recipes and all that good stuff.. I wise her well.

I did manage to set my dinning room table and living room table with new fall decorations :) I went to Micheal's and to the Dollor tree and made the house look great for fall. I will post pics later today.

As I posted yesterday I snagged a Namaste Zuma bag in black on sale :) Now I am looking for a Malibu bag in Saddle color. Namaste is not making the Malibu bag anymore :( so me trying to find a Saddle bag right now is really hard. If anyone reads this and wants to sale their handbag scream at me , please.

Hope everyone has a great week.

New Knitting Bag

It has been a while since I bought a new knitting bag, the last being my Pink Jordana Paige knitting sachel. I really needed something that was not as big and that I could take into work or public that didn't knock people over when I walked down the isle, lol.. and something that just is not as heavy with my knitting and other crap in it. So I was up at 4am this morning and was looking on Raverly and could not find a Namaste bag for sale that I liked, so I hit google for Namaste sales. And like always the internet never fails me, I came to a blog that said Woolgirl had a 20% off sale on Namaste bags. The hardest part of all this once I got to WoolGirls website was deciding between the Newport bag which is 44.25 or the Zuma at 55.20. The Newport had the color I wanted of Saddle and the Zuma Saddle is sold out.. Then I saw the Zuma had the new black and that was it. I thought this would be a bag I could carry with everything I wear and it would look just like a purse and is not to big to look like a granny bag or a knitting bag. So I just ordered me a Namaste Zuma in black :) I can't wait to get it and show pics to everyone .. I really wanted the Saddle color but maybe down the road I can order another one . If any of you out there have the Zuma Namaste bag let me hear from you. I want to know how well you like it or don't like it. I will post pics of the new bag when it gets here this coming week. I was hoping it would be here by Wenesday for knit night but I think that would be pushing it some.
