So, she has little goldfish hanging out of her mouth, but she is still so cute. She makes that little poncho look so darn good. It is the first one of many to come. I figure she can wear them during the Fall and next Spring. I think I am going to add a little string to tie it under her arms so it doesn't flap all over the place.
The poncho was done on a regular gauge knitting loom, using the flat stitch, and the purl stitch. Instructions are available in PDF format and you can find the link on the side bar.
Peggy tagged me with a cute meme, it is the second one since I started blogging. So here we go :).
Ten years ago: I was a sophomore in high school. Was kind of a geek that belonged to all the math clubs. I am not that good in math now. My favorite thing to do was to help out in the school library so I could sit down and read to my heart's content.
5 years ago: I left all my family and friends in NY and moved to Utah to start a new life. I got engaged to Sam on Christmas Day.
1 year ago: I was eating to my heart's contes as I was pregnant with Nyah.
Five Snacks: Well, I don't usually snack, but I do eat all day long and if the following things are around, I will eat them:
- Rice Cakes
- Did I mention Donuts
I have a very soft spot for donuts :)
5 Songs I know all the words to: Dido-White Flat, Dido-Here with Me, Akon-Lonely, A-ha: take on me, Hilary Duff-Wake Up.
Five things I would do with $100 million:
- Pay off all our school debts
- Buy a nice little house with an enclosed backyard.
- Buy another little house for my Mum and move her here to Utah to live near me and provide for her for the rest of her life--she needs a break.
- Bring my grandparents over to the US and buy them a house and provide for them for the rest of their lives.
- Buy Sam lots more tools for him to play at the shop.
Five places I would run away to:
Hmm, interesting question. I don't know many places, but if I had the money, I would go to Scotland. But since I don't, I'll conform myself with the quietest place in the house. However, I usually run to the mall to get some "down" time from the kids.
Five things I would never wear:
- Strapless dresses
- Nylons--uncomfortable things!
- Heels higher than 2"
- Halter tops
- Belly shirts/short tops
Five favourite TV shows:
- Phil of the Future
Five biggest joys:
- Seeing my kids laugh and happy
- When my Mum comes to visit
- Seeing Sam perform well in school
- Sleeping Late--really late
Five favourite toys:
- My pc with fast internet access
- My looms
- My needles
- My little iPod
- Pots & Pans
