My mom taught me how to crochet when I was home for Thanksgiving. I've been really enjoying teaching myself different stitches and practicing keeping my stitches even. Last week I finally decided to attempt to follow a pattern and make a scarf. Here's my first attempt. I am THRILLED with it.
So after my crochet success, I decided to revisit knitting. I've been wanting to learn something besides a bacic knit-stitch dish cloth and scarf. I've signed up for a knitting class at JoAnn Fabrics - stitch sampler scarf. I'm super excited for that. Anyway, so I tried to do a washcloth from a pattern. It was going great but the final corner got a little mishshapen. I'm going to try another. I'll let you know how it turns out. Here's the little dish cloth who almost could.

I know it has been absolutely eons since I blogged. For now my Twilight obsession has ebbed and I’ve been filling my days with holiday prep and some mad knitting and crocheting. Here are the top 3 things on my mind right now.
- Great Deals!!! Select classes are 50% off at JoAnn Fabrics right now. I’m taking the Knit Stitch Sampler Scarf class. It’s 2 evenings for 2 hours and usually costs $55. I’m thrilled. You’re welcome to join me. I’d love some company.
- New Mascara!!! It was time for some new mascara and Rimmel had something that was muy interestante. It’s Rimmel Glam Eyes and I love it.
- Kabuki brushes!!! The bristles fell out of my Bare Minerals kabuki brush about a week ago. I asked Sean to glue it for me. Sadly, he got epoxy all over the bristles. While it was still usable, it wasn't pleasant. I was hesitant to pay $28 for another kabuki from Bare Minerals. Lo and behold, Kate just happened to see a kabuki brush made by ecotools in a recent Oprah mag that was available at Walgreens. We hunted down a Walgreens and while they didn't have the ecotools brush, they had another brand of kabuki brush on clearance. I figured at $6.49, even if it didn't work like my original brush, I wouldn't be out much. It works just as good (I thought I remembered something about their brushes being specially designed for BM makeup). I don't know if Kate & I were the only ones who didn't know kabuki brushes must be fairly common but go figure!
