Afghan for my cousin

So my cousin is retired from the army and he wanted me to make him a afghan. So what colors come to mind ??????

Camo colors.

He really loves all them camo colors. Me not so much. I can't wait to get this done.

I think I have 6 more skein of yarn to do. GOD HELP ME.
I am using one of my favorite patterns very simple sc, then dc in forth chain from hook. I love the simplicity of it. I can watch reruns of Ghost Whisperer and not miss a step. Ya see I was late to catching on to that show. So I have been tivo ing them from monday nights on scifi chanel.

This is my Jewel dog she loves sleeping on her pillow.

My new cute tote bag. I love patchwork purses and totes. I have been throwing around the idea of sewing some. I really am not the best at sewing but I really would like to learn.

Fingerless Gloves

What have we been doing since 2010 has started?????? Digging out of the snow. Plus knitting and crocheting. The temps. have been so brittle cold.
I have made several pairs of these. They make the best little gifts. But I kept the green ones for me.

Fingerless Gloves are Easy and Awesome to wear. Knitting them is pretty easy. One pattern I tryed using circular needles then the other pattern I used straight needles. Well I have to tell ya I LOVE the Straight needle method. The pattern comes from In fact I printed the pattern again because the other one has notes all over it. Don't ya just love a well used pattern????
Something else new is a blog I just found She has such a wonderful sense of humor. Plus her pictures are gorgeous.
