run with scissors

Can we just talk about how amazing this girl is??
Words can't describe how much she continually blesses me with her friendship <3
looooove her!
Lately, I am more likely to be known as Run With Crochet Hook :) (just kidding) :D

I have been a crocheting fool. I know that I said in my last post that I was going to be using the pattern that Holly Sarah posted on the RVA blog but apparently, Im not really sure how to read patterns and that did not work out so well. Instead, I just went at it and created my own pattern. And I LOVE IT!! The turquoise is more ruffled looking for the border and the rest will be grey until I reach where I want the last turquoise border. It looks so precious to me :) I'm addicted to it. I also crocheted two hats this morning too. Well, I started them last night, finished them this morning. I gave them both to two of my students who don't have hats. They looked too cute. I wish I would have gotton a picture.
And OMg...did you see the sneak peeks for the RVA update tonight??? I literally can NOT wait. I think it is probably going to be the best update they have ever had, seriously. Here are some of the things that I am absolutely in love with so far:

Im so glad that Christmas is coming up!!
Oh, and here are my next two projects that I want to do after my blanket:


(I don't have the credit for these so if you know who they are by, please let me know)!!!
love love love!!
Ok, I need to get back to work, breaks almost over <3
Happy Wednesday.


  1. Can't wait to see your blanket when you're done! Beautiful colors!
    Thanks for the sweet words! You're awesome. xoxo

  2. That blanket is going to be so pretty! I love the turqoise!

    Those fingerless mitts are by creativeyarn - http://creativeyarn.blogspot.com/2009/11/diagonal-eyelet-hand-warmers-free.html

    is that what you were asking?

  3. p.s. i saw over on your feed that you got a reader from park hills, and whenever my twin and i would pass through there on family trips we would always say, "park hills, what!?!" all gangsta style. i have no idea why.

  4. hellloooo cute gloves! i love those. and that necklace is sooo cute!

  5. Chelsey - I think that person is me. I don't know why it says that. It normally says Warrensburg. I must be connected on someone else's internet... I don't even know where Park Hills is... lol!

  6. i LOVE the fingerless gloves!!!! they're sooo cool! :o)

  7. Can you explain the way you are making this blanket? I would love to try it, but I can't read patterns :( I would really appreciate it!! If you wanna email it to me, my email address is misfitemilie@aim.com

    Thank you soo much!! <3

  8. The blanket looks great! It actually looks very similar to the pattern I posted, so you must be pretty good at reading patterns! I worked on mine today too. It's a nice project to have. xo
