thanks Miss Barbara!  The yarn I made was made with Blue faced Liecester wool and corridale wool, so it is quite soft, and will be nice and warm Smiley

So I was in a fiber swap with Oddacity a while back and she sent me the most delish colored roving, pinks and yellows!  I immediatly began hoping that my Belly Friend was a girl as I knew exactly what I would make with it if said Belly Friend was a girl... Well,  We still don't know, as baby is still in belly, but I made this starghan anyway.. I sure hope I get to use it!  It's not big, but I intend it to be a lovey blanky and of course can slowly make it bigger as baby grows, and when I spin up more yarn to match.   

anyway, enough yackin'... pics!



Me "modeling" it over the bump... yes beautiful pregnancy mask I know... Thats what happens folks.  be prepared.. LOL



and a close up of the center which after making a few more of these as pot holders (  which I don't have any pics of...)  I realized a better way of doing it, newb mistake, but eh, whatevs



Anyway I love this pattern.  you can just make it as big or as small as you want!  I think I love crocheting!

Okay so I took some pics finally of some stuff thats still on the bobbin from ages ago....... I hope it all plies up right since it's been sitting for much to long...


Hand pulled roving from Freestyle, spun up on the bobin.. still have 1/2 of it to go...  Hoping to try some coil with it.


And finally a FO!! This is from dyed roving I spun sent to me in a swap by Oddacity.  A crocheted
starghan!  I think I'll leave it this size, as its more as a lovey blanket for my belly friend if said belly friend comes out a girl.. Cheesy

eee!  my secret Santa is sg1psychopath!!!! wooo! 
She made me things off my list!  They are exactly the right colors.  And will match my dining set perfectly!

what I see when I open the box (minus the card Wink )


the "everything"  a Table runner, placemats, cloth napkins with napkin holders, dark chocolates (mmmmm dark chocolate  Grin ), some pretty candles and a monster.


Table runner and a placemat and a napkin in action with my wonderful model.


the reverse side (sorry the pics sideways.... Undecided)  but its the spanky side, so it will be used for fancier parties Smiley  I like that I can use it two ways  (and yes it needs to be pressed... once I go to use it, it will be Smiley)


and the monster, modeled by my 4.5 year old Smiley  Shortly after this pic was taken all sorts of hillarity insued, when the cat got a hold of it ..... chasing and diving for the monster... to much fun!   



It is a wonderful package and I love it!!  We are the only people who ever invite people over for diner parties, because I think its fun to entertain.  So all this will be used often! 

thank you thank you thank you!!!

ETA: the monster totally reminds me of the whatsit my grandma had once upon a time... Which looks pretty much exactly like him, only hers was a bit smaller.  I love him Smiley

and finally:

I was so, so spoiled, and I LOVE everything!  Everything is just so 'me', from the penguins to the colours and the style.  Thank you so much to my secret santa...........bel ladune!  you're amazing <3

You are so welcome thedreamer!!!!!  I'm glad the color scheme was on.  And I never thought about it, but yes, the bag would be reversible, I supose it depends on your mood, either way I'm glad it's the right size, I worried it would be a bit on the big size......  The stars can be pot holders, or wash cloths, or since you crochet, you can stick them in a blanket, I thought it didn't much matter, but I felt everyone needed those for christmas!  The little penguin (yes needle felted) made it into the box with tears from my 4year old.  He wanted it so badly!  But of course I made him another one.  And I'm glad you like the charms, nothing wrong with a few supplies, hope youcan use them in some jewlery!

Off to open my pressy's.  Yes it was more important to see what everyone else got so far.   

ETA: Trigger finger mitts?!!?!?  zomg another wistable item... I don't shoot guns but dude how sweet....
