5KCBWDAY4 Conversations Between Workers

So I missed yesterdays post because I went to a tulip festival instead writing a post... ooopsss

Todays post is a conversation between a tool that you use and yourself. I am picking my double pointed needles (DPN).  I used them a lot, I like knitting hats and mittens both require DPN's. I have this set that its bright purple that I really like using (mostly because its the only set I own because I'm poor and too lazy to buy a new one).  So this is my conversation with my DPN's, I don't have a fun name for them so I'll name them Bob.

Me: Hey Bob what's up?

Bob: Nothing much, just chilling in my plastic bag for the past couple weeks.  I totally can breath in here...

Me: I get it.  Long time, no use. I've been crocheting lately I thought you where okay with that.

Bob: Really? You thought I would be okay with me watching using all your crochet needles without using me...

Me: By all, you mean 2, that less then how many needles than you have.  Anyways, when I'm using in you in a project what you call our relationship?

Bob: Pretty good, why do you ask?

Me: Writing a blog post and I just feel like you run away from me a lot when we're together.

Bob: Oh that.  I thought I was being playful...

Me:  Needles rolling away from me when put you down isn't playful and I've almost stabbed my butt so many times from when I put you down on the sofa and you roll around.

Bob:  Ah man, I'm so sorry. I didn't know that bugged you.

Me: It's okay, we can work on that, and I'll make something with you soon.

Bob: Awesome!!

5KCBWDAY2 Dating Profile

Day two of the knitting and crochet week and this post is the dating profile for a finished object. So I picked a tuque that made earlier in the year.  

Dating Profile:

Shameless Selfie 

About me:

Hey, I'm an knitted tuque of about 2 months old.  Even though I am made in Canada I feel like my have some strong European roots due to my fair isle pattern. I'm made of acrylic yarn which does mean I have a hard time connecting with others.  I'm made of bright colors to show my fun, light hearted personality.


I have a huge interest in Heritage, I was mostly created in a lecture about Heritage, so I have a strong connection to it.  I would not say that studying is an interest but as a student, it takes up all of my time.  I spent a lot on my time on campus working.

My favorite season is fall and late winter because I can go from long walks and spent a lot of time outside without getting to cold.

I love going on adventure to coffee shops, I'm completely infatuated with the smell and atmosphere of coffee shops.  


Over all I'm pretty laded back.  I do not like formal events because I don't feel like a fit in.  I also dislike big headed people, they bend me out of shape.

Plans for the Future:

I want to travel and see the world, sometimes I feel like I barely get out of my own neighborhood.  Apart from that I just want to spend times with my friends and live life to its fullest.      

Me and my best friend on a walk

 That's pretty much all about me.

My marker will be back tomorrow with an other post.

Much love

5KCBWDAY1 - Day in the Life

I'm participating in the 5th Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, created by Eskimimi Makes.  It is my second year going it and I plan on releasing a new blog post everyday this week.  (Hopefully) 

Today was A Day in The Life...

This is be the day in the life of my currently project, that I casted on today actually.  

I am going to try to make a Squirtle Pokemon toy.  I made a crocheted one last week for a friend using the following this pattern.  I really liked it and another friend wants one so I'm starting one for them.  With this one, I'm going change some elements about and see how it goes.

Crocheted Squirtle, make by me

My day in the life started last night when I was trying to unknot the mess that is my blue yarn and turn it into a ball.  I was hanging out with some friends while I was working on this and our conversation lead to us looking up Drake and Lil Wayne videos on YouTube.  I am not completely sure how since we don't usually listen to rap music when we are hanging out together.  One of my friends looked at me and the ball I was making and said "Look you're warping too".  It was a PUNishing joke, but I was able to make a nice ball of yarn with which I can actually use.  

So pretty 
The rest of the day of my WIP was me starting to knit a ball in the blue to become the head.  

So far so good 

It is a quiet day for my project but a good start. 

Later days
