Horse show

Today I went to a 4h mock horse show and I was going to show in the horseless horse groom Best Groomed horse class and my coach that I'm matched up with was going to do showmanship and stuff. She brought her young black/white paint horse and she was lunging her and then this other horse got loose 3 times and the third time it ran towards the lunge line and was going to jump over it but then it was going to get tangled so she let go of the lead rope and then her horse went running off around the fairgrounds. Then she decided that her horse was too insane to show (it was going to be the horse's first show) and so she scratched us from our classes. I was kind of disappointed because it was going to be my first show too but I'd rather not show and be safe than be in the ring with an excited horse who goes crazy sometimes. So I was outside from like 7:00 am to 2:00pm and I got a sunburn on my face because I failed to think about bringing sunscreen. I'm also really tired since I had to wake up at 6. I think I was pretty nervous because all I ate all day until 3:30 pm was half a pancake and 1 poptart. I didn't get hungry until we left to go back to my coach's house. I had fun though even though I didn't show.

As for knitting, I finished the knitting for the nautiloid minus the tentacles and I need to sew the face to the shell. I also started a baby sweater for a layette at my church. It is going very quickly because it is very simple and just stockinette. :)

I got an ipod!!

Today I got a pink ipod nano! I named it Sprinkles. ;) It already has a cozy made from this pattern.I also made a miniature sweater on Thursday from this pattern: Miniature Sweater Ornament.
I finished my Saucy socks on Tuesday but I don't have a neat picture of both of them so I just have a pic of one for now. They fit great by the way!After I finished the saucy socks, I made a Vortex dishcloth. It is so cool and it was easy! No pic yet, sorry. :)

I have a finished pic of the Quinn bag! A lot of people at school have been asking me if I made it, instead of "Where did you buy that?". I thought that was neat.

I started Nautie the nautiloid on Friday. I actually made the face first because we had to go to my sister's college to help her with her loft and see her last band concert. I forgot the stuffing and we didn't have time to go back and get it.

Quinn bag and stuff

My Quinn bag is 99% finished. I just need to sew on the button that I made a loop for so it will close and buy some fabric and make a lining. Today at my LYS I bought a neat button with a Celtic knot on it. I think it will go perfectly with the cables on the bag. :) Finally I only have one wip. We'll just have to see if I can resist casting on for the Vortex Dishcloth until my sock is finished! haha
