And then there's the shawl, Shawl that Jazz. The Yarn Harlot knit it in Pucks Mischief (ravelry link). I'm smitten. It's like a triangle shawl, but no point. I'll have to buy the pattern, but I think it's worth it!
In other news:
My baby is 1! And she's walking! OMG! I'll have to do a proper post for that, though. But here's an obligatory picture (or 2) to keep you occupied.

It's a hotpad/potholder swap. I have to crochet 5 hotpads in the same pattern (different colors are okay), ship them in and I'll get 5 different ones in the mail.
I'm a little nervous about this swap because it's my first one. It makes me nervous because I don't want to be the one that screws everything up. I'm not going to screw up, but that's beside the point.
Because I'm lazy, here's the post I made over on their blog:
I started out thinking I would test a couple different patterns, but I really like the first one I tried. They are (thankfully) a bit over 6 inches across. This has turned into quite the stash buster. So far I've used Plymouth Fantasy Naturale that was leftover from a pinwheel blanket and a baby shrug. I'm hoping I have enough without having to buy more.
The pattern is here. (ravelry) The construction is very interesting on these! Without the video, I would have been totally lost. I can see many more of these in my future.

Stranger: everyone is rediculous on this thing
Then I talked for awhile with some 15 year old about bands. We didn't really connect except for liking the older Fall Out Boy stuff. I'm following him (her?) on twitter for shits and giggles. That's probably the best convo I've had yet.
Here's some more:
I guess nobody has read The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The only one that got it was the very first one:
Stranger: is the answer
Stranger: to the universe?
You: and everything
Stranger: it doesnt answer y i ******** too much though
You: are you sure?
Stranger: u have me confused with some1 else im sorry
I'm not sure this is something I'll keep doing. One good match out of 10 isn't good odds. Although the penis fight one had me loling.

I made this for a Wild West birthday party. It's a little more Little House on the Prairie than Wild West, but that's okay. I'll have to get a better picture, but this works for now! And it'll double as a Halloween costume (before she has any say in it, pretty soon she'll want to be a princess)... I made the 1 year old size, but it's pretty big. I might have to redo the elastic in the wrists before October, but that should only take a few minutes.
I might also want to buy a bonnet pattern. I kind of fudged one so it doesn't fit, but it looks like a bonnet hanging down her back (just like Laura Ingalls Wilder wore hers)
