My first Knitting magazine, the Goat Pillow, and a new Knitting goal

Friday, February 13


Currently Listening to
(a perfect song for Valentine's Weekend!) "Currently," Keaton Simmons



HOW ADORABLE is this pillow!





I bought my first knitting magazine ever from Barnes & Noble the other day... Knit Simple (let's hope so).

I should ban myself from B&N. I always find something I absolutely have to have (sometimes multiple things)... but I am glad I bought this magazine. My first one!



There were multiple designs for kid projects in this section... but the goat pillow is my favorite by far.


The moose is okay but for some reason the goat speaks to me... the sock puppet looking things are an eventual possibility.

The snake, fox and frog hat/scarf just don't do it for me. That kid would never wear those to school. If his mom made him, he would take them off once he got on the bus.

The pattern looks a little difficult but I'm gonna do it! Will update on progress!

Concerning American Idol, they moved someone else back up so it is a top 36 again. Also, that one girl had opened on tour for Nick Lachey, had a record deal, knew higher ups at Idol...the list goes on and on!

Oh wow, that moose is amazing. I'm obsessed with moose and would so make that.

Go for the goat though that rocks too and I'm sure you'll do it, no problem. I'm about to start my very first hat having only learnt to knit in December. Eek!

It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
