Chick With Sticks

I have been crocheting and knitting for many years now, and I love it.  I find it very relaxing and enjoyable.  I'm hoping that this blog will whip me into shape since I have been slacking on it for the last few months, and I now owe certain people certain things.  Hahaha!  I figured that if I make an actual list of what I need to make, I will be forced to actually make them.  :)

So here goes my list (not in any order):
  • Peejay - purple cowl/hood
  • Peejay - black slouchy beanie
  • Phoebe - slouchy beanie (color to be determined)
  • Phoebe - black cowl/hood
  • Elo - red & gray striped beanie
  • Elo - red & gray striped fingerless gloves
  • Justin - white beanie
  • Elo's mom - slouchy newsboy cap (color to be determined)
  • Elo's dad - beanie (color to be determined)
  • Lyssa - scarf
  • Lyssa beanie
  • Roy - black beanie
  • Jan - blue beanie
  • Vin - gray beanie
  • Joy - maroon slouchy beanie
  • Ron - brown scarf
  • Mike C. - charcoal gray infinity scarf
  • Mike C. - gray striped beanie
  • Lowell - gray & green hooded scarf 
  • John R. - black, white, or purple skinny tie 

I'm sure I missed some people... I just listed what I remembered I owed people.  I included a couple of finished projects in there just so I can strike them out.  It makes me feel better, makes me feel like I accomplished something. LOL.  I will periodically refer to this list, and update this list as I progress along.  If I did forget someone, please remind me, and I'll add him/her to the list.

Here are some pictures of some of the projects I finished.  I have made more, but I never took pictures of them...  I wish I did though...

Come to think of it, I do have more pictures but they are currently stuck in my inaccessible external hard drive.  Hopefully, this blog will also compel me to start taking pictures.  =P

Long Overdue

I am finally back in the blogging world. I've been thinking about making a new blog for quite some time now... I knew I wanted to start blogging again, I just wasn't sure which blogging site I wanted to call home.

I've used Xanga in the past, and for a little while, I strayed to Livejournal. Both accounts are still active, although not updated. But I feel like I've outgrown those sites. They were a part of my younger self, and I have grown.

Then, I discovered Multiply. It was love at first sight. It had everything I wanted and needed, so for the last few years I called Multiply home. But now, I've decided to move. While I am still very much in love with Multiply, I am uncertain of its future. It didn't take off, or become as popular, as I had hoped... It was a difficult decision, but I had do it.

I chose Blogger because it's been around for quite some time now, and it doesn't seem like it's going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, I've signed up for a blog back in 2007, although I've never used it. While I still feel that Multiply's features are better, in the end, Blogger's staying power won over my love for Multiply.

Now, to come up with a username...

I've decided, after much deliberation, to just stick with either miss-pamela or pamela-joyce.  I've tried other usernames, but got tired of them quickly.  Pamela-joyce won over miss-pamela because I know one day I will outgrow my Miss Pamela alias.

So here I am with a new blog...  Let's see how this goes...
