Let's Just Pretend It's January 4th

I know I'm really really late with this, but it's the first time I've been back at school (where my bottle of strings is) so I just now got my picture! This is my January picture for Daffycat's Totally Useless Stitch-a-Long!

Sorry about the crazy-lateness! It'll be better from now on!

Give me your input!

So far, I've given you guys some random pattern searches over things I happened to be working on/wanting to work on at the time. So my question is: Do YOU, my loyal, if limited readers, have a pattern search you'd like done? Some type of pattern or some random word you want searched for in free knitting pattern form? I will attempt to do any of them that are asked for, so ask away! They can be cute, funny, random, or NC-17 for all I care (I promise I'll label it if that one comes up!).

So give me your input! I'll do my best to make your pattern search wishes come true!

You Can't Deny the Cuteness

The first week of January is nearly over. How's it going for everyone? Mine has been going fairly well. I've nearly got my wedding guest list finished! I've got all the addresses for his side, and most of the ones on my side! It feels good to have accomplished something. Also, Mom and I went wedding dress shopping last weekend! It was so exciting! I found a really gorgeous one that I fell in love with, but of course it was just my first go, so I'm sure that will happen again! I'm going with my sister this Saturday! I love all this wedding stuff! I'm so excited!

School starts up again on the 18th, and I'm going back the Friday before that! Josh and I both got a job at Chick-fil-a, and we start training on the 17th. Hooray for money!

I decided to take a bit of a different route with this pattern search. Whales! I found a really cute headphone-holder thingy that was a really cute whale, so I ran with it!

Moby Dick Cable Controller-This adorable little whale is perfect for your desk to hold your usb cables or headphones! I can't wait to make one! He's so adorable!

Whale Charts-This cute little whale chart is 28 stitches across and 18 stitches high, so it's decently versatile.

Whale Watch Purse-If you're someone who lives near the water, or just someone who LOVES ocean-y things, this cute little purse is perfect for you!

Whale of a Tail Baby Hat-This is a simple, cute little hat for a newborn that looks like the whale's tail is sticking up off baby's head.

Oedipus the Orca-A little stuffed Orca whale! I think it's precious.

Hazel the Humpback Whale-Available as a free download. You'll need to make a free account (which I totally recommend!). This is a realistic looking little stuffed humpback whale! It's amazing how real it looks.

Moby the Whale-A simple stuffed whale. I think it's cute!

That's all the free ones I could find that were whales and not fish. If you know of any others just comment and I'll add them!

First Post of the Year

Happy 1-1-11 everyone!

Interesting things happening to me this year:

I graduate college in May! (Finally!)

I turn 22.

Nine months from TODAY I get married!!

The day after that my new husband and I will take off for our honeymoon in (fingers crossed...almost certain) THE BAHAMAS!!!

This is looking to be scads better than 2010. That was a roller coaster of a year.....Hope everyone has a great new year! I'll be back to posting knitted-related things soon. I've got a pattern search in my sights that's bound to be adorable!
