One Day, One FO!
Monday, December 31, 2007
I accidentally signed up for the crochet part of this KAL. oops! Lets just say that it kick started my ambition to reteach myself to crochet. I don't think that I did that bad of a job. I did, however, let it felt for too long in the washer. It still fits, though!

PATTERN: Hello Kitty Winter Mama, with help from Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker
HOOK: P-10mm
YARNS: Rain (double-stranded) & Daffodil KnitPicks Wool of the Andes + Winter White Patons Wool Classic Merino

And Erik even took a flattering picture of me! Damn, I'm hot! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

No... I haven't been drinking... Why do you ask?

Still no yarn :(
Sunday, December 30, 2007
I still haven't been able to get any yarn. I live in the sticks, lol, and besides that the only store I can access personally is crappy Spotlight. I have not been able to find any yarn that is anywhere near the 'requirements' I am not happy. I have been able to get supplies for the knitting kal, but not the crochet one :( I won't give up, lol.

Thank you so much for the hat... the maggers is loving hers! Now if i could just get her to keep it on her head...... she keeps taking it off and yelling "kitty", or taking it off to talk to it. I may end up adding cords to tie under her chin. I don't know. My camera is at the shop right now.. but as soon as it gets back we will have some pics. :)

Hello Kitty Winter Mama Headband - Finished!
Wednesday, December 26, 2007
I can't believe it - I finished the Hello Kitty Winter Mama Headband! Yay!
I decided not to felt it because I've never felted before and I also quite liked the texture the large hook produced. I made it in my favorite color - Purple!
Oslofia, crocheting this was so much fun! Thank you so much for this pattern.
Once I finished Hello Kitty and saw that it turned out so accurate and sweet, I simply had to finish the whole piece!

Its Christmas Eve - the kal has started
Sunday, December 23, 2007
It's Christmas Eve...meaning the Hello Kitty Mystery kal has finally started. Since this is a mystery kal, you will receive one pattern at a time, receiving the next pattern as you go.

As you can see, the first items are a felted crochet headband for grown ups, and a knitted hat for kids. I made a blue flower first, but I just had to rip it off and replace it with a pink one.

Apart from this, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :)

Mailing list
Wednesday, December 19, 2007
Dear participants...I've e-mailed you all today. I made a crochet and knitting mailing list, so please get back to me if you didn't receive the e-mail. Human errors do accure, and beeing a bit stressed before Christmas doesn't really help either :)

Hello Kitty Winter Mama is done!!!!
Tuesday, December 18, 2007
The grown up set is finally done...pjuh! I've used the same colours as for the kids set, white, red orange and pink. This is also a 3 piece set (I'm a bit like rainman...have to work stuff in uneven The shopping list is posted in my notebook over at Ravelry, along with gauge and hook spesifications.

Now I have to write down everything nicely...which usually is a nightmare. This time around I tried to write down everything on my computer as I went along, but like any new year went straight down the drain! I guess you know what I'll be doing for the next couple of days :)

Have a great week...stress down...and I'll see you ladies and gent on Christmas eve!!!!

Hello Kitty Winter Kids are done!!!!
Monday, December 10, 2007
Hi everybody!!!

The kids set is done...and here are some pictures to show you the colours I choose for the projects. I tried not to use pink...but sorry guys, the first blue flower I tried just didn't give me any LOVE so I had to take it off and make some pink flower power. You may off course use any colours you like, and it will be fun to see what you come up with during the kal.

Since I've posted some pictures now, I might as well tell you that it's a 3 piece set. My daughter looks really cute in hers, and I'll be taking some pictures of her wearing it when we get some snow here. I have tried to ordered some snow for the photo shoot, but my wish hasn't come true yet ;)

I've posted a shopping list over at Ravelry where you also will see needles and gauge etc.
