Where did February go?

I was on duty in Biever tonight, it's odd to work somewhere other than Buddig. I don't know where anything is and the residents don't show their IDs. I got quite a bit done though, I have a big music history midterm on Monday as well as my German diction midterm. I'm pretty nervous about both. Tomorrow I have to really sit down and cram.
I made a flower and a clover tonight, I'm planning on making some more clovers for St. Patricks day. I can't believe it's March so soon. My recital is fast approaching, which is really stressing me out.
I am starting a new main project, A Big Daddy from Bioshock, my boyfriend though it would be a cool thing to make. I'm pretty excited about making an amigurumi Big Daddy. I'm going off the design from the first game, I thought it was cooler looking.

Sorry, I have two left hands!

Wow! I never thought it would happen to me, but in my latest endeavor I made two left oven mitts... Not that it's really horrible to have two left mitts, but it gave me a good laugh... I'm pretty pleased with the way they came out!

The stars came out more like flowers which I love! I got the pattern from the Lily Sugar n Cream website.

I'm starting pilates today! I'm super excited, one of my friends is an instructor and she's teaching classes on campus! I'm planning on crocheting a bag for my yoga mat! I found a neat pattern so I'm gonna start on it as soon as I can. Now I've got to get ready for my first class!

Another weekend rolled past me

There's my panda! I put some rice in the feet since it was oddly balanced... he looks so sweet sitting on top of the tv! My dishcloth of doom is almost done, can't wait for that! I need to stop procrastinating... I have an essay due in my 8:30am class tomorrow and I haven't started at all. I just don't feel like doing work! I want to crochet and go to bed! School is lame! I also think I'm getting a cold. Boo. Brian took me to P.F. Changs for dinner tonight. It was delicious! I was so full! Their hot and sour soup is awesome. Well, I'm off to doing homework and tomorrow I'm going to start on my oven mitts!

oh desk duty...

I work at the front desk of my dorm. I check people in and make sure they live in the building. I have to sit here for 8 hours so it is prime time for crocheting! I'm working on a few projects right now, an amigurumi panda, an amigurumi 1up mushroom, a dishtowel, and oven mitts! I just finished an amigurumi monkey from Ana Rimoli's book Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet. It's super cute and I think my friend will love it!

I lost my camera during Mardi Gras, so I have to make do with lo-quality... Well, I'm making the panda's arms and legs! I'll post it tomorrow.

Hi! Well I haven't had a blog in a little while. I haven't really had anything much to write about. Recently I started crocheting and it has given me something to put my energy into! I only started about three months ago and it has become such a part of me that I almost always have a hook in my hand. I have not actually gotten in trouble for crocheting through most all of my classes, but I did get in trouble for knitting during multiple classes in high school and that is where I got my inspiration for the title of this blog. This blog is going to be about my projects mostly. My bike blog didn't seem to be working out as I stopped riding for most of the winter. I'll never be a hardcore all weather cyclist like my dad and co-workers - which does not necessarily bother me. I'd rather be warm and cozy. I'll still update my bike blog as it's starting to get warmer ever so slightly. I saw the sun today!

Currently I have about four projects going. I can never seem to work on one thing at a time... I get bored with it! I'll start posting my FOs and wips soon. Unfortunately I lost my camera so I'll have to borrow someone's first. So yay for my first post!
