Latest Crochet Project

What is that?? You mean you don't know?? Haha! It's an ear! No I didn't cut it off of some poor defenseless crocheted creature. I just crocheted it last night, and one day it will belong to Eeyore. He will be 18" tall sitting up. The pattern is from the Leisure Arts book Pooh and Friends, and it will be a Christmas gift for my nephew Devin. Last year I made him Tigger. The picture of this ear does not really do it justice. Even with the flash turned off the color looks really washed out. I will try taking future pictures in sunlight to see if that will help show the true color of the yarn. I am using acrylic for this project because it is durable and easily washed.

Tomorrow I am going to St. Augustine for a Fiber-In. I'm so excited. It isn't going to be a huge event, but it will still be fun! This is the first year, and I hope that it won't be the last. One of the gals from my knitting group is going to be vending and she will also do a demo on Rainbow Dying. I wish my camera battery didn't stink so that I can take a bunch of pictures. I'm going to charge it overnight anyway and hopefully I'll be able to snap a couple. I'm so excited that I can't sleep!

I should be exhausted right about now. I have been suffering with an abscessed tooth all day. Luckily I was able to be seen by a dentist. That is no easy feat on a Friday. He wasn't even open, but said he would see me anyway. He prescribed me some Amoxicillin to clear up the infection. I expected him to charge me an arm and a leg for the impromptu emergency visit (especially since I was a new client), but he only charged me 45. I was shocked. Yes folks there are still nice people out there.
