December 3rd, in my photo challenge brings the color red! I have to say, one of my favorite colors to wear is red. I absolutely love it. TJ can tell you, I wear my red sweater pretty frequently. lol. I wore it today, hoping to get a picture but that did not end up happening. Oh well, at least last night I thought ahead to take a picture of the massive amount of red that was all over my living room floor. The suspense is killing you, I know it is!
Our friend Alexi had a huge box of vinyl that he wasn’t using. We happened to be looking for some vinyl for various projects so this was the perfect opportunity for both of us! We did not know what colors were all there and so we unrolled it all and found tons of colors. Mostly white, but a ton of red too! Like a ton of red. TJ was super giddy to play with some vinyl.
As you can see, lots and lots of red vinyl! Should be fun!
Hope you’re enjoying this holiday season!
P.S. We are about to get a pretty good amount of snow! Pictures hopefully tomorrow!
Let’s be honest here. We all saw this coming for my K post. I am always talking about this project and that project and this yarn and that yarn, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I chose knitting to talk about today.
This one will be more pictures than anything lol. I love knitting. It keeps my mind from wandering off and getting lost in an abyss. It also keep my hands busy so I don’t always feel like I have to get up and do something. It can be very relaxing, very stressful, very therapeutic, very annoying. You name, I have probably felt that way about knitting at some point in my knitting journey. I just love making things with my hands and knitting is one of my favorite ways to do so!
My current stash of yarn, needles and a how to book.
That wasn’t even including the yarn I have already on current projects. hehehe.
My current projects: a tote bag and a shawl
And then we have some of my finished projects. Several hats (although not all are here) and a blanket. I’ve done scarves too.
So, needless to say, I think I rather enjoy knitting a lot.
So, today is Tuesday yet again. I feel like Monday is just a day I push through and then Tuesday comes and I start to realize how busy my week is. This is when reality sets in a little bit lol.
Last week I talked about how awesome Chaco is. I got to wear my chaco sandals almost all week. It has been a little colder over the last couple days so I have not worn them.
This week I want to talk about my favorite yarn to use, which is Peaches and Creme Yarn. If you have not tried them or have not heard of them, you can either find them at Walmart, or check out their website here.They are made in Canada but it is 100% U.S.A. grown cotton so it is an all natural yarn. I love using organic products and this one has just amazing colors. I have shown you some of the colors that I have around or some that I have used in some of my projects. They are honestly such a great product and their little balls of yarn are not expensive at all.
I used one of their balls of yarn yet again as I finished up my hat this week and as I start my next project today. (It is a secret about what it is.)
This is my newest hat! I just love the colors! They layered on each other so beautifully and I used the Floral Fantasy color twist from Peaches and Creme. It is just a great hat and so color to add to my spring wardrobe. Again, if you want one, I am selling them for $20.
I am also using a nice light blue for my next project this week. This is also from Peaches and Creme. It is such a light and yet strong yarn. I would tell anyone about it and encourage anyone use it for their projects.
Well, I must be off as I do some work around the house, plan my topics for the April Challenge and then head off to work!
