So today was thanksgiving and Brandon's parents drove down and took us to eat at the beach. Then we stopped by the public beach momentarily. It was warm and gorgeous out so I couldn't just drive away :) I really wanted to stay and lounge in the sun... But had to go to my aunt's house... And she had pie so all was well :) lol
And last but not least there is a photo above of my lovely soap sweaters. They are Christmas gifts. The one in the front is a random soap I had on hand but the others are special :) they were made by the lovely Libby and I swear I want to eat her soaps! Do yourself a favor and get yourself some! http://mayleesgarden.etsy.com they are awesome!

Yes, this is Chuck Norris, and I have given a big roundhouse kick to that dreadlocked woman, and taken her firstborn son to train so in the event I ever die (which is unlikely) he can take my place (evil laugh) All the world will fear Elijah, and his new last name WILL be Norris. So sayeth the Chuck...
Remember, When Chuck Norris does pushups, he is not pushing himself UP, he is pushing the earth DOWN.All Hail Chuck!

I also felted up 2 of my beer/soda can cozies. I crochet them then I hand wet felt them... No washing machine felting for these bad babies :) the pic is sideways because I'm sending from my phone and I haven't figured out a way to turn them! More bottle and can cozies coming soon. These too will be added at etsy.
And then there is the proverbial cute Elijah picture thrown in for extra fun. He was having fun at the laundry mat yesterday :)
The hemp and recycled sari silk yarn I started spinning yesterday is really pretty :) I'm excited about and will give y'all a sneak peek of that soon! :)

Today I have to finish the dreadband and make more soap sweaters for xmas. The pattern for the soap sweaters can be found here http://pickinandthrowin.blogspot.com/2006/12/great-last-minute-gift.html it is not my pattern but a goodun. I am going to make an alternate crochet version for all the crocheters out there. When I get the pattern written up I will put it here on my blog :)
My next spinning project is possibly recycled sari silk and hemp. We shall see how that goes and I guess it may need some wool or alpaca to go along with it. I'm hoping I can do it with the sari silk and hemp fiber but it may be too difficult for my liking!
