I live in the wrong side of the Country


  Ive decided that I live on the wrong side of the country. I went to CrochetWithDee and   My Hooks and Needles. They attended the "Knit-Out 2006 and Crochet" Event in New York. Im totally jealous. I live in Las Vegas Nevada and we have many conventions here but they never have conventions for yarn or knit or even crochet conventions. I really need to think about moving back there. I just need to convince my hubby. I know they have casinos back east so there is a possibility.

  You really should go visit their sites they will make you want to be there as well. Well Im still working  Caps for the Capital for the babies I have 40 or so done now . Im going to make at least 50. Ive been doing so many different patterns and Ive reallyenjoyed coming up with the patterns. Now I was thinking about writing the pattern out and posting them here on my blog. What do you all think? Ive never written a pattern before but I will try and see what I can come up with.

  Ok have a great week and Ill be back real soon.

  Ive been ever so busy:) Ive been reading Beverly Lewis Amish books. There are 5 of them and Im on number 5. I really enjoy her story telling.

  Ive been making the baby caps for the "Caps for the Capital" campaign. You can find a really cute pattern that Dee over at  crochetwithdee made. Ive made several of her cute little Tulip cap.

  Ive also been busy with my friends around here. My friend Karen had her 50th birthday on the 11th. We had a great time. She is around 6 months younger than me so I had a real fun time picking on her.

  Its really great weather here right now. Its somewhare in the late 90s. Wonderful weather. I hope your weather is great where you live too. Have a blessed day!
