So I finally bought a domain to post my stuff for sale!
nothing's on it yet though. still working on it.
I took a few pictures today of a hat and scarf set.
and I'll take a few more pictures of some hats this weekend.
other than that, I've got a few of Man Hi's necklaces to add to the shop.
I'll let you know :)
I'm almost finished with my green ribbed tank top. yay!
just have to sew it up. finishing is no fun. well. just not as fun.
any tips to make sweing the seams up easier?

I took Anjali thrift shopping yesterday!
She lives in my dad's hometown. so close by. It' so much fun to have crafty people around.
Christi and I took her to our local thrift store and she was impressed :)
Can't wait to see what she does with the stuff she picked up!
I found a few more knitting needles and a bunch more 60s and 70s pattern books and mags.
I made myself put most of them back. Restraint!
still only came out to about $6.50 for everything.

It was a crafty shopping day yesterday.
Man Hi and I went bead shopping at Ruby Tuesday in Long Beach. Well, she shopped for beads. I just looked around overwhelmed. again.
There so many pretty ones to choose from but it was hard for me to picture what they would look like all put together.
I did take pictures of some necklaces that she has made already and will post them up today.
Then we had crepes and shopped a bit on 2nd st.
I saw this very cool screen at 5001
and it's available on sitcomfurniture.com.
We just missed out on yarn store shopping though! For some reason I thought the store closed at 5 and they closed at 4 :(
So the people that worked there saw us peeping in through the window wishing we could go in...
I found another yarn store on 2nd that I want to check out some day called Liscat.
Then we went to Target and picked up pretty accent rugs from the Swell collection. It was six squares of different colors and pretty flowers embroidered onto them. Most of it was on sale so it's probably on it's way out. We were so excited to see what was left. The quality of the towels weren't great but the print was so cute, I couldn't resist.

Christi and I braved the rain and went to the thrift store today!
It was buy a bag of clothes, get one free AND 50% off everything else day.
So we got a couple of bags of clothes: old suede skirts, sweaters, etc.
I also found some fun pink tweed looking fabric, a couple of knitting and crochet pattern books from the 60s, some hoops that I want to use as purse handles, and this thing that attaches fasteners onto fabric (the box says it's a dot snapper).

I needed a break from making hats so I made another scarf yesterday.
It's pink and grey in the same pattern as the black and white one below.
One of these days I will have an actual photo shoot of my stuff so you won't have to keep looking at silly pictures I take of myself in the mirror.
Also working on an online boutique so it will be easier to sell my items :)
(But I'm still taking orders through e-mail :) )

Here is the gorgeous pink suede bag I got from Susy Lundy
and the fabulous coin purse!
(the pics are from from her site)
Susy is the sweetest thing ever.
and very creative as well. I'm so happy that I am meeting such great people through this site :)

Here is what I've been working on for the past few days:
another burgundy and blue hat, red and cream hat and an all black hat.
and underneath those is the front of a 4 x 4 rib green tube top that I am making out of rowanspun aran.
I didn't know that I was supposed to wind the hank into a ball before knitting so now it's one big jumbled tangle that I try to fix a little before each row...
