What the...?

for some strange reason I haven't been able to access my blog. It just pulls up a completely blank page. I really hope I can figure this out... Blogging by phone isn't as easy. If anybody has a tip for me that would be great. I have lots of pictures to post!!

johns first trip to guemes...

i decided on a whim that i wanted to FINALLY take john over to guemes... i packed us a quick picnic of shredded chicken pita sammies with pesto mayo, avocado and lettuce with sliced strawberries on the side. we also brought the cooler over with a couple brews. it was a cold and the sun was disappearing but we still had a great time. i cannot wait till the sun is here full time so we can enjoy the beach even more.


this and that

what i've been doing lately...

i've been obsessed with painting my nails since last summer... but i'm stepping up my game. i'm now a nail stamper! and i'm completely addicted.

if you want to become a crazy nail addict like me you should go buy some plates... like, right.now.


new year, new knits

i've been working on some lovely new knits lately. (all are pictures from my phone. i apologize in advance for the crap quality). since the start of the new year i've been doing some selfish knitting. seems like forever since i've actually made something for myself. feels nice :)

my "jane" beanie

i thought i'd try a multi colored beanie. super happy with the way it turned out. the fit is amazing!

a nice assortment :)

i put my fears aside for this piece. i overcame 3...
1. knitting with dpns (double pointed needles)
2. knit a sock, a stirup sock actually. using this pattern
3. fair isle. need i say more?
i am very happy with the way the pattern and colors worked. but not happy enough to start and finish the second one. i may be experiencing second sock syndrome. i'll get around to it eventually!

this little number i made for my sister.
it's the same concept as the one black/grey/white one i made for myself, but i added a row of hearts. for the hearts i used this chart. sunni told me she wants to live in it. i think she likes it :)
