Ghost Pumpkin

I had to carve a pumpkin for Halloween. This picture came out blurry, but I think you can still tell what it is. Happy Halloween!!!

I got my camera back!

Here are some pic.s of my new mitts. Er mitt (so far.)

My Flip top mittens!

So I found the cutest pattern for fingerless gloves. They were supposed to resemble the one's worn by a character on Dr. Who's season finale. I loved the cable pattern. I had to make my cables a little smaller and cast on fewer stitches because my gauge was a lot larger than the pattern. The mitten I finished still looks great though. (I added a flip top to the fingerless glove.) I also added a button to hold down the mitten top when not in use. I should get my camera back this weekend, and I'll post a pic. In the meantime here is the link to the pattern.

I've been googling for some cute stuffed animal patterns and I discovered amigurumi! Amigurumi is a japanese style of making creatures (from what I understand.) I found a website, which has some amazing creations. There aren't any patterns, but the creatures are display like pages in a comic book. You must look at this website!

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a couple of weeks. I have had some personal issues I've been going through, as well as, multiple tests that I have been trying to study for. Erg. Somehow, though, I have managed to knit this week. I have been working on a short sleeve shrug, and I finished it yesterday. (I did this instead of studying for my patho test. hmm....probably not a good idea.) I got the pattern from It turned out okay. It looks much better on the girl who wrote the pattern. This is normal for me, so it was expected. I would have posted a picture, but I left my camera at my parents' house this weekend. They live an hour and a half away so I'll probably get it in a couple of weeks. I will post a pic then and I'll try to find a link to the pattern too. I am to lazy to look for the link now. ;>)

Lately I've been slowly crocheting another hat for my boyfiend. He liked the one I knitted for him a few months ago, and I felt like he needed one with a different style to it. I bought a beautiful wool silk blend that happens to not be itchy at all!!! Of course this hat is going to be black like the last one. That guy is my Johnny Cash, always in black. I'll post a pic when its done.
