I've been lazy

I won't lie. I've been really lazy and unmotivated. So in terms of knitting/crocheting, I havent' done THAT much, and I think it's partly due to the fact that I got fed up with the baby hat from DaleGarn, which had pattern that wasn't exactly well written all the time. I mean, it's not a difficult thing to knit, but for a while, I was doing things wrong. Ugh. So it is sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to pick it up again. I guess if I have time this weekend, I'll pick my way back through all those little loops to fix those mistakes.

But in other news, I finished my Totoro...and Adam kept trying to take it home with him. (And he knew it's for the amigurumi swap this coming Wednesday)! I am really pleased with it, despite the fact that my finger definetely is a bigger fan of knitting than crochet.
I'm also still working on these mittens. My goal this time is to finish them by Christmas. Certainly I can finish these mittens by Christmas. I just have to finish the pairs!

And in non-knitting related news--these are my trollbeads so far. The new Spring collection comes out this month! Can't wait!

the totoro is great! i know what you mean about finger pain with crochet too, the only problem for me is that it only starts hurting when i stop crocheting...
