I ♥ Knitting, Friends, and Cooking

So, it's the end of the first week of my big project. Actually, it's Monday, so I'm a day late. :/ Sorry about that.... Sunday was a nice little lazy day. Anyway, last week's project was: Try a new knitting or crochet pattern. I tried two new dishcloth patterns, one knitted and one crocheted. Here is how they turned out!

This is the one I knitted. It has a lighthouse pattern on it and it turned out even better than I thought it would! I was very happy about that. :) I gave it to my mom, since she likes the knitted dishcloths better than the ones from the store.

This one I crocheted from a little pattern booklet that I got with some Sugar n' Cream yarn. It's such a cute pattern, and very easy. :)

Didn't they turn out well? I was quite happy.

Now, my project for this week is........ Write a poem every day for the week! Isn't that fun? I like poems. In fact, I wrote a poem quite a while ago that I will share with you:

If I could fill my house with books,
You'd never see the door.
And you wouldn't see the ceiling either,
Nor even see the floor.

How do you like it? Hehehe do you get the feeling that I sort of like books? ;) Anyway, at the end of the week I will share all of my poems with you.

Over the weekend I went to my wonderful friend Kenzie's house, where we played Super Monkey Ball, ping pong, took pictures, talked, and made dinner! Now, you may be thinking, "Is this the same friend she cooked with in the other blog post?", and the answer would be yes! Although, sadly, this time Cam wasn't there. Oh yeah, if you are confused by mentions of my friends, there are only two of them, so I'm sure you will get their names down. :) We made a yummy dinner of spaghetti, caesar salad, pork chops, and (or course!) homemade bread. I had a great time.

Before we cooked dinner, though, we went outside and had a little photoshoot. It was very fun! It was surprisingly nice outside, about 40 (okay, it was nice weather for MT), but by the time we were done, we could hardly feel our fingers. :) Here are a couple of my favorite pictures of Kenzie from our photoshoot...

There is another one that I really like, but it is sideways when I try to put it on Blogger.... Oh well. You can take my word for it. :)

Well, I had a wonderful time. I am blessed with the greatest friends! Maybe in my next post I will do a recipe or something.... that sounds yummy! If I did a dessert then I would even have an excuse to make one. ;) In the meantime.....

Happy January!



  1. You are wonderful. :) By the way, that picture picture of me on the white fence that was my profile picture (not on this blog) was so wonderful that my Grandma decided to put it in her living room. :) And you know its a good picture when it makes it to my Grandma's living room... :)

  2. Oh! I'm so glad :) It's a beautiful picture of you! I had a good model.... :)
