So, after a long and productive (in more ways than one) day at work I am home. Eating another home cooked meal by who other than myself.

How was my work day productive in more than one way you ask?  (Admit it, I know you’re curious)

Aside from my usual workday I managed to find the time to make a cute, REALLY durable, snug sleeve for my beloved nook!

It’s cotton, two types of yarn (black and hot pink), and perfect!


And the pattern here

I link to Ravelry because if you don’t have an account there, you don’t know what you’re missing! And I am not exaggerating, I love the organization it offers, and the ability to keep track of projects and just….check it out.

This makes 4 projects completed in 2 days! I have yarn burn!

So project number one was a little panda plushie doll, because I LOVE pandas! They are only the cutest, sweetest, most cuddly animals in the world and I plan on one day going on one of  the panda sites and “adopting” a panda ❤


Here ❤

You should have seen the day (not too long ago) that I found out that they have live streaming panda cams all over the world!! It was a Friday, and not one time through that whole weekend was my computer screen without a live panda feed.

If you are interested in viewing the panda cams HERE is a great list of all of the panda cams! The “explore” ones also have other cams to all kinds of neat animals and even the northern lights! Also the Edinburgh Zoo is a 24 hour cam with night vision, and also features a monkey cam!

But back to the projects…..

I also finished a 6 foot 11 inch scarf, which is pretty and of course pink!

And I made a hammock for my pet rats ❤

So that’s that!

Some exciting news as far as I’m concerned….I get paid this week! First paycheck at a new job is always the best. That means I get to play catch up, and may even be able to buy a loom set and/or these cool things that were shown to me….one is a finger guard. It’s supposed to be for people who whittle, but I have gotten in such a bad habit of holding my yarn and bouncing my hook off my finger since I did the amigurumi panda that it just hurts….I have been using a band aid. Also was brought to my attention that they have these cool things that well…you know its easier just to show you. These things look so cool, the plastic and the metal one. I will probably try both just because they are so inexpensive and well I could certainly use it!

Deciding my next project, hope that I decide soon, if not I may just go back and finish some of my old ones.

I am off for the night, very sleepy and just about ready to hit the sack! And it’s only 7:20 pm!! I know I’m not an old lady now, come on haha!


p.s. I have officially gained 2 followers from my “Begin” post! As I mentioned this is my first ever blog, so that makes me SUPER excited!! I had even more “likes” so that tells me I already have readers! Love you all!!

p.s. again, I am terrible at linking things apparently, so bear with my terrible links haha!
