I'm one sock down, one to go - halfway finished with these "hunter socks" for my dad. The pattern is free, and if you are registered at Ravelry.com, you can download it.
I'm knitting slippers for my mom, again. I have no clue what my mom does, but I am suspecting she eats slippers for breakfast, this will be her 4th pair. Haha! This time I will be felting them after they are knitted, and hopefully that will make them last a little longer. ...unless she really does eat them!
This pattern, French press felted slippers, is also on Ravelry.com , this one is not free though, but totally worth every $.
This is what they will look like once they are done, cute right?
I used the skirt, and the midriff pattern pieces, and made my own bodice pattern, and I am currently working on a new super cute, strapless dress! Almost finished! I used fabric that my mom sent me for Christmas, and it only took 1 yard! Awesome! :)
Gonna add a touch of red, I'll share a another picture once it is finished :)
So I drove an hour out to Salem yesterday to take the test to get licensed, I didn't get much sleep the night before, and I was super nervous. The test was a two part test, the first part 100 questions, the second part 50 questions, and they give you two hours to finish. I was doing great at first, but English being my second language. Don't get me wrong, I can do just fine on a day to day basis, talking to people, write, no problem, but once it gets formal, and words that I don't use daily are being used, it gets a little tough. So there I was super confused, and had to guess on a few questions since I didn't know what certain words meant. It was so frustrating!
So with that said, I passed one part, failed the other. I missed by two questions I think. Total bummer, I know. And this makes me feel so incredible stupid. Luckily I remember the questions I answered, incorrectly, and can study those, and re-take the test in 7 days.
I am still so very, very thankful for all your good luck wishes and happy thoughts, you guys are the best <3
Josh came home from work with a cupcake from Saint Cupcake, the cutest little bakery/boutique you have ever seen. Love!!!
With that said, I have some socks, slippers, and a dress to finish. I also want to sew or knit a little toy for my nephew, any good ideas or links to patterns?
Only two days left til Irene comes to visit for 5 days, aweeesome! <3
I hope you have the most wonderful day.
