A New Love...

Aside from my hubby, my baby, and crocheting, I now love SWAPS! Trading of any kind. The world of trading was brought to my attention by MOONSTITCHES. Her blog is amazing, by the way. Anyway, she has a link on there about BackTack, which is a really awesome swap. Go there to see what it's all about, sign ups are going on right now and end on Oct 4th.

So after seeing that, I thought to myself, "There's got to be other trading places out there!" So I searched Google and found Swap-bot. There's all sorts of trades going on there! It's going to be a lot of fun. I am sending a Whimsey Jar to someone in England, and a Journal to a girl in Austrailia. I love other countries...

ALSO... I got yarn in the mail yesterday! I love getting yarn in the mail, it's so exciting! I had ordered this awesome yarn from Bare Sheep Yarn, so of course I started crocheting as soon as it got here. I finished the shawl, and the neck warmer just needs a button..

I'm expecting more yarn this week, too. I'll let you know when it gets here!!

My Little Guy

This is my 7 month old son, Ethan! He is awesome, I have to tell you. He's a pretty happy little guy. Very strong, lots of energy. He says mama (and dada sometimes). He army crawls, eats stage 2 foods, and sits up by himself. I think he's the cutest baby ever (of course!!)

Fingerless Glove Frenzy!

Wow, I've been so obsessed with making fingerless gloves lately!! I made up all the patterns myself, too. I don't know why it's so easy for me to make up patterns for them... It just happens ;) Here's some that I have made recently:
Yes! I can finally model my stuff, now! Lol. I had a baby 7 months ago and just recently felt up to modeling, haha. So if my sister or her friends can't come model for me, I can just set up my tripod and do it myself. Very convenient.

It was my birthday yesterday and my Mother-in-law watched our son, while my hubby took me out to Red Lobster! This is a special treat because my husband hates sea food. Don't ask me how that is possible ;) After that we did some clothes shopping for me, but we ended up also buying a few things for our son. Aaawwww.
