Paddy Counts Sheep At Night September 26, 2012

I was lucky enough to get a deal for the iPad off my friend
This new device takes away 1 hour of my sleep each night
While I sleep under the covers, I thought about my iPad getting cold
So I knitted Paddy a case, which took away 2 days of my life
Now Paddy can count the sheep while it sleeps :)


Pattern based on: Shaun the Sheep


P.S. Let’s all blame Paddy for my lack of blogging action for almost 3 weeks!!!!! Peach’s secret will have to wait another week :( I am terribly sorry!!  *Uses Paddy to shield away all the flying tomatoes*  I miss everyone and I have sooo much to catch up on :( I miss stalking everyone’s blog and creeping on your lives :( :( :(  Thank you for all your previous comments, I will reply to them as soon as possible!!! :)


Peach has a Secret September 6, 2012

Peach loves to play at the park
But most of the time, she gets herself stuck
She loves animals and owns many unique and questionable pets
Butterflies, snakes, bugs, and even ducks

Peach has one pet that she particularly loves
It’s limey green with a  yellow spiky spine
This pet is very different from all the other animals
You do not want to hang around it when he needs to dine

Peaches Secret – Can you guess what it is?

During this summer, I have been teaching my coworker’s daugher, Evelyn, how to knit. We meet once a week and early this week, she completed her first ever knitted toy! Below is an image of Quacky (which she named herself).

(Quacky didn’t quite get the memo that it’s summertime)

I am so proud of her and her accomplishments especially because she has never learned how to knit before. She is so dedicated, patient, and hardworking. I am just so grateful to have such a wonderful student. Evelyn is also my one and only student but she is the best!


Pattern: Jean Greenhowe’s “The Duck Family”


My approach to teaching Evelyn how to knit?

1. Long-tail cast on
2. The knit stitch
3. The purl stitch
4. Increasing  (kfb and pfb)
5. Decreasing (k2tog and p2tog)
6. Cast off (k wise)
7. Reading patterns (understanding the vocab, g-st, st-st, yarn (yo), b + t)
8. Circular knitting

Have any of you folks taught anyone how to knit before? I would love any advice or suggestions! :) 

Below are photos by Stringrain (Evelyn’s mommy) – She is also a fabulous photographer!


Loo Lu’s Date Was Not Late August 13, 2012

It is Lennie and Loo Lu’s first date!
Lennie takes Loo Lu to his favourite flexy fence
He shows off and climbs upside down
Loo Lu was impressed by Lennie’s climbing skills


They talk about important issues side by side
Topics like monkey bars, banana muffin, and human DNA
When their arms started to get numb, they decided to go cloud watching


Lennie tells Loo Lu the sky is blue because God stepped on a blueberry
Loo Lu was impressed by Lennie’s knowledge
Their date ended quickly when Lennie was trying to show Loo Lu how to fly off a tree trunk
Lennie got hurt and Loo Lu had to take care of him for the rest of the day



(That was exactly what Lennie wanted)

Hi everyone!!

I really wanted to take some pictures of my finished project today but it is so cloudy outside with a chance of meatballs!  :( It might be raining elephants as well….

I took a quick snapshot below to keep it mysterious. Can you guess what it is?
