Meat Sauce and Spaghetti



Tonight I made an attempt at a meat tomato sauce. I had a lot of hamburger and used Hunt’s diced tomatoes and Hunt’s sauce as the foundation with some onions and garlic. It seemed to take forever to cook but that is probably because I was really hungry. It turned out really well. I made a lot of extra so I will be eating it for a while.


Quick Blanket



This is the blanket I made over the weekend. It crocheted up really fast. The pattern and yarn are from Lion Brand called Spa Garden Ripple Afghan ( I used the suggested Lion Brand Thick & Quick yarn. It is really soft and really warm.

Gone Batty



This is The Boo pattern from Mochimochi Land ( It is a really quick knit and I made her in a night. I haven’t added the button that the pattern has yet and I am thinking of making another one trying out the other wing pattern. I am really bad at embroidering so my attempt at the teeth turned into a side quirky smile and will stay that way. I really like the loops for the feet and I currently have her hanging off a shelf above my bed.

Valentine’s Day Present for Someone Special


This is the wonderful hat I made for my boy friend for Valentine’s Day. The pattern I used was called Greer ( which I altered a little bit. I wanted to add in the forth color along with change the top  a little bit. I ended up doing the top three times. First I tried following the patter which was just 2 rows of k2tog and then tried a little less aggressive method of decreasing. Since decreasing the hat that fast made it fit a lot smaller I had to take it out again to I could decrease 8 times a round with a row of straight knits so that it would fit on my boy friend’s head.

I personally love the colors but no one else I have shown has really shown any enthusiasm for the hat so maybe one of you will enjoy it! I am an obnoxious person and sometimes like obnoxious colors! The yarn was the same suggested in the Greer pattern, Boston by Schachenmayr (
