  book help
well, i went and searched down this book:

hopefully it will help me get this together :P
  what a mess
well, i finally got it figured out as to how to make my blog be the main page, now i can't figure out how to do my other links!
what a mess. i've been searching for a software to make this whole web-building thing easier - so far, i haven't found anything. suggestions? i understand html - but not so well that i think i could go at it straight. anyhow.... i'll get there. by the way, here's my girl: (she needs a name)

go ahead and update your links :)
the site is in a complete stage of infancy right now. i'm still learning how to do this, but i have a great vision - and that's where it all begins, right?!
i still have not figured out how to get my blog to come up as the main page. i'm getting help with this. until i do, it will still be here (at YoButterfly) and there is a link on www.EweDevil.com

thank you, thank you, my love for doing this for me!!

setting up this little website is a lot more than what i thought it would be. soon, i will be going to sams to get some sort of program to make it easier. i'll get it up, it'll be nice. i'll get there (a little self-assurance talk).
in the mean time, i received a fabulous package of chenille from LadyK, this is the last i will be getting from this round of the yarn swap. next is sept-oct, the theme is either Christmas or winter...
i also got the name of the person i will be swaping scarves with... but i think i'm gonna keep it a secret until she gets it!! i'm so excited. i started working on it a while back. it is awesome!!
okay, have to get a video watched tonight so it can be returned. intolerable cruelty.. we'll see if it's any good.
until tomorrow -
oh, i will get pictures of my fabulous chenille up either tonight or in the morning.
hopefully i will get a little done on the site tonight after the flick... hopefully

  it's coming.....
my wonderful hubby bought a web page for me last night. it should be up in 48 hours........ tick tock
Sunday, August 22, 2004
my wonderful husband was on a business trip to jacksonville florida - found the local yarn shop : A Stitch In Time, and bought me a prize!!

1 package of crystalites hooks G-K
1 ball of Plymouth Yarn in Eros Glitz - it is white satiny-ish with a tiny strand of silver zig zagging through it - it's a railroad yarn
1 ball of Plymouth Yarn in Furlauro in black. it looks like a cross between fun fur and eyelash but is SO absolutely soft and luscious
now, what shall i make???

i also have got to tell you all about this fabulous yarn i got in the yarn swap at Crochetville from Nashville Crocheter =

this yarn is so completely fantastic, i haven't the right words, except that this stuff is all mine. i'm going to make something for me out of it - this yarn makes me happy :)
it is 4 balls of Katia Velour in a beautiful multi-taupeyish browns
and 1 skein of Sirdar Stampata Super Chunky in a mulit brown with a twist of multi blue, boucle type strand - I have searched the country over for this and finally found someone who has it and am going to jump off my yarn diet wagon and buy 10 more skeins of this glorious yarn!
  is it possible???
i think i have tooo much yarn! check out my yarn reduction efforts on the right! yikes! 14 ponds and still a LOT to be counted. i think i've gotten a little out of control. and, i have 15 pounds+ raw wool for spinning - holy cow!!
i need to get busy and use this up. several pounds of it are different baby yarns - gor new baby gifts ---- if i just get a few blankets made up, i'll get lots of it out of the way... but first: FOCUS---CHRISTMAS is coming!! i MUST get my wip's complete! that is also getting out of control ---- eeek, i've gone hookin' crazy!

  plastic... are you serious?!
What Kind of Yarn Are You?

You are Acrylic.
You are Acrylic.While you are very versatile, your plasticky
countenance can be offputting. You are very
good with children but can become a pill if
left alone with them too long. You are very
flexible but don't give in to manipulation.

What kind of yarn are you?
i finally chose the yarn that i will be using for the stockings i hope to make for the stocking along.
i haven't decided which stockings i'll be using....

i'm hoping the cotton will give them a very "old-style, traditioinal" look.

this is the absolutely FABULOUS yarn i got from Fatima at the yarn swap

it is SOOOOO pretty and yummy. it has this great halo of silver that the camera didn't pick up all that well. now, what should i do with it... i'm really searching for suggestions on this... i'm so bad at making such permanent decision---eek!

something else:
this is my score at the library book sale (actually there are 4 other books that had already made it to their home, so i just took a shot of what was out. as many books as you can fit in a paper sack for $3!!
i went straight to the craft section and got all the knit/crochet/spinning books i could find, i ended up with 16- and around 20ish childrens books!
there was an actual LINE to get in -- pretty funny :P

okay, the 2 yr old thinks he's starving, i gotta go

This blog is dedicated to my crochet habit.
