Halfway Through the Dark!

Hello Everyone!
Happy Holidays! 
It has been a bit chilly today, so I think that I will knit a bit.  I've been knitting a lovely spiral hat pattern in my 60 Quick knits book out of some beautiful Dream in Color Lunar Zazzle that I purchased with some of my Christmas money.  I got the Knitter's Book of Yarn , some beautiful stitch markers, and some peppermint from my Secret Santa Yelley.  DH got me a knitting journal and a pink sock monkey hat.  I have a little bit of money left for a bit more yarn.

I am planning to knit some hats for charity Friday night to bring in the new year!

Helping out at The Urban Sheep!

Have a beautiful Weekend Everyone!!

Fun Things to do in October!

I love this time of year!  There's a cool nip in the air and I have thoughts of hot chocolate and mulled apple cider.  We don't have the nip in the air today.  In fact the air conditioner is on right this very minute, but a girl can dream of fun things to do in the fall.....
Yesterday, I went to a planning meeting with DH.  It was a planning meeting for this
This event is open to families and friends of all ages!
I've even volunteered.  I'm not going to share any of the details, but I will be helping out in the Haunted House!  It is going to be fun! 

Another Event that I'd love to attend is The All Hallows Fantasy Faire on October 23rd & 24th at the Sonora Fair Grounds.  The Faire is deeply rooted in the beliefs of the Celtic people, but combined with all the fun and excitement of a modern Halloween.  There's even a midway for kids!

For your knitting enjoyment.  I found  Rachel's Mystery Dishcloth Knit Along ~ October 2010.   The knit along starts October 18!

I think that I will go have some chilled apple cider and dream of Fall.....

Etsy in the News

Yesterday I was amazed to find an article about local Etsy sellers in the Modesto Bee.  I was excited to see the article.  I know there are lots of people who sell on Etsy, but I have never done a local search for stores.  I searched local for Modesto, Ca and came up with 4 pages of Etsy stores.

Here are a few interesting ones that I found.

This shop sells B*earWarmers and Rainbow scarves.  The crocheted B*earWarmers are adorable!!  They are a must have accessory to raise one's cuteness level.

This shop features upcycled dishes that are handmade from an impression of a vintage textile in clay.  You can, also, find beautiful clay pendants.

This shop features redesigned clothing and accessories with attitude.  I love the toddler dresses and the bags!  You can also follow this designer on The Salvaged Stitch blog   where I found cute harness dresses for little dogs and on Facebook by doing a search for SewBitchy Clothing and Handbags.

Bonkers Boutique
This shop is run by a Mompreneur who make tote bags, lunch bags, and cute cloth napkins!  I especially love the pirate themed reuseable sandwich and snack bag!!

It was so much fun checking out the local Etsy sellers.  I found items that I love!

Until Next Time.....

Have a beautiful Day!

This morning I got up early and made French Toast and Buckwheat Pancakes for everyone!  My MIL has been wanting buckwheat pancakes for a long time and I was able to find the mix when I went shopping on Friday.  I even had a tiny bit of pancake batter left over to make Sweet Pea a tiny pancake. :)

This is a good photo of Sweet Pea munching on a peanut:
 Yesterday I went to The Urban Sheep to knit.  I love knitting at the shop.  You get a chance to visit with friends and check out the yarn in the shop.  I finally started my sweater.
My February Lady :)
It is always fun to hear what everyone is knitting.  It took me a little while to cast on the first stitches in between visiting with my knitting friends.  I counted my stitches a few times to make sure that I had the correct amount. 
Casting On My Sweater

This is my 1st adult size sweater.  I am going to take my time since I have several projects to do between now and Januaray 2011.  I have at least 3 more baby sweaters to do.  I also want to make some baby hats and booties for a craft fair that is coming up in November.  I've written two of my own baby hat patterns that I want to use, and I am going to modify the baby bootie pattern that I have been using to match one of the hats. 

Have a Beautiful Day !

Angelbibity Designs has a New Blogging Home!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to my new Blog!  

 Last Thursday, I was at The Village Bakery with some of my knitting friends.  My friend Kara shared her new Kindle with us.  I love it!  I hope that I can get one for myself in the near future.  She also has a nice leather cover to go with it. I think that all of us were green with envy. 

At the knitting group, I worked on a pair of  fingerless mitts for a dear friend's daughter.  Also in my knitting bag, are fingerless mitts for myself and DH.  I must get them finished before I start on my February Lady Sweater in Ruby Red Lana D' Oro!

Have a Beautiful Day!
