Chevy Loves his sweaters

Yet another dog sweater. It's getting absolutely freezing here, so Chevy needs some warmth ok? Don't hate!

Seriously though he hates wearing sweaters. I think it's funny. But he shivers outside without them.

Recycled Sweater

So I made Chevy another sweater out of an old mens' sweater. It's totally simple, hand sewn- really unattractive actually but it was an attempt at an original. Held together by a Christmas pin before I sew it. Chevy looks terrified as always. But hey! It's eco friendly!The material was just taken from the sleeve. I can make so many!

Thank you SO much for all your comments! It was so exciting for me to check back and see new followers and faces.

I'm happy to announce that we have a winner, brought to you by

Megan Presley!!! I'll be e-mailing you for your address details, and will ship the gifts shortly!

For everyone else, stay tuned please, because I've started crocheting up a storm over here in order to get my etsy shop set up. I'll create an e-mail list to all those interested and let you know when I've got things to sell!

I'm so excited for the feedback I'm getting! Thank you Sew Mama Sew, for this brilliant giveaway idea! I always thought my little monsters were cute, but never knew there'd be such a demand for them! I'm going to have to get my bum in gear and get this etsy show on the road so I can start selling them to everyone who wants one!

Found out today I'm not going home to my parents' for Christmas. Sad news, but the amount of money it will cost is a little absurd, so I'm telling myself this is best. I'll be here, with Mr. Rockit, and our own Christmas we will have with the animals.

Finished a plate in Ceramics, can't wait to bring home my cupcake dish that's being glaze fired right now!

Keep on commenting on the below post for your chance to win! Taking comments up to the 7th, so comment and subscribe away!

Giveaway day, you're only a day away

There is your preview of the giveaway prize. Not to be fully revealed until tomorrow!! Poohahaha.

But I will put up pictures of other projects. Here's Nessie, who I've been working on for awhile. I can't get her to stand up straight- I think I have to redo her "water" also, but isn't she fun?

Her snake pal keeps her company in the lonely world out there.

And what do you think about a set of bowling pins?

My loves

Just having a lazy Sunday afternoon with my love and my laptop. Working on the giveaway prizeee, which I'm slightly anxious about, because no one reads this blog except me. That's okay. If no one else reads it, then no one will know that no one reads this. ahaha.

These are some little amigurumi office buddies I made. I gave the right one to Bethany for her birthday, but this is along the lines of what I'm thinking for the giveaway. The purple one keeps Mr. Rockit company.

Anyway, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, because I know I did!

Hope and Fear

You need to see this series of photos by Phillip Toledano. "Hope and Fear are the external manifestation of the internal desires and paranoia that are adrift in America. "

Giveaway Day!

First year participating in the Giveaway Day from Sew Mama Sew!
I'll be making something very special- to be announced before December 2nd! Winners will be picked in an exciting random way, and I will send you something handmade! Still haven't decided what to make yet, but it will be spectacular, this I promise.


Yesterday Chevy sniffed out a centipede. Gross. Those creatures and I have a long standing feud. Fight to the death. There was the time I had a faceoff with one in the Miniapple Montessori kitchen, and I won (thank you), and the time I encountered one in the hallway and we danced a battle tango. Yes, I very strongly dislike those guys. Least favorite bug. Ever. I even can stand spiders more, at least they are cunning and useful. Centipedes are just nasty.

I just google image searched centipede to show you a picture, but was so grossed out and just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Besides that, I'm feeling sewing machine withdrawal. I keep thinking of all these great home decoration projects for the empty space, but I can't do anything! I feel like I've lost my daemon (Golden Compass reference).

But I have decided, I'm going to make a pseudo fireplace :D because then I can pretend I live in a cabin.

Next Project

How cute is this? Got the free pattern from Spud & Chloe's new blog, can't wait to make it! It'll match the cupcake sugar dish I'm making in ceramics! Yes!!!

Anthro Lust

Anthropologie . Seriously- "one-of-a-kind fobot" belongs in my home.
I mean check out the tummy detail of the clock. I need one. For only a zillion dollars.

Good Morning Sun

So first, is a finished product picture of the light blue cabled sweater I was working on for Chevy Monster.

Pretty quick knit up, if I had actually sat and done it all at once.

Started another sweater for him, I'm going to see how fast I can crank these out and start putting them on etsy.

Today on the agenda is to take my car to the shop and say FIX ME. I'm so sick of this darn car, seriously. It's such a headache. 2 weeks ago someone takes out my driver's side mirror going like 700 in a 35 at 5 in the morning. This week the tire is flat so we change it to a spare, and lo and behold my battery is dying and refuses to start half of the time without a jump.

We drove it here because we didn't have any other choices, but I'm wishing we looked harder for alternatives.

Not going home for Thanksgiving, but I suppose this is my new home. Lots of food with friends though, that is for sure. :D

I'm thankful for my lovely friends and boyfriend, and for making this move quite adjustable and smooth. What are you thankful for?

Things are looking swell

I have all this lovely free time, so I figure it's about time to make the most of things and get bettyrockit off the ground. So I'm going to start my massive attempt ( at least that's what I'm forecasting) at starting bettyrockit and selling my stuff. Park Slope and Manhattanites eat it up. And anyone else for that matter that would like custom made dog and childrens' sweaters as well as gifts for the holidays made from all recycled materials. We'll see how far this goes.

I officially love the Twilight series. I started the fourth book today- after a weekend long of reading the first three ( I know, crazy) and I'm trying not to read this one too fast- mostly because I get nothing else done and forget to eat and sleep. Ahaha.

I'll give it to Stephanie Meyer, she's not that great of a writer, and she uses words like irrevocably entirely too much, but she's created quite a cast of characters that is hard not to get drawn into. Hard not to get completely obsessed with. So much that while I'm not reading and pining, all I think about are vampires and werewolves. Bella and Edward; Bella and Jacob; Alice and Jasper AHHHH. Ahahaha. Is it possible that I have a very addictive personality? Yes. Likely. But just as likely is that some part of us wants that ridiculous sort of life. I know I do. Still want to run for my life. Or at least have something more exciting in it.

Have you always been a Mormon?

we're not mormon.

New Project

So I've been making a few things since I've got some time.

Here is Chevy's new sweater in the making :)

It's a little femme, I know, but so is Chevy.

weeeooo weeeoooo

I hate how many sirens are always going off here. Not really- but it does get a bit annoying, especially when it's night and I'm tres sleepy.
This weekend was long - I took Chevy to Prospect Park and walked forever- when I got back he just laid down and didn't get up for several hours. I love it.
Bridget, your shower is possessed. I did what you told me to- left it on to get warm where the pressure was the strongest, but it did not work. So I don't know what is going on- but I might just be washing my hair in the sink from now on. :)

It's up to you....

So it's almost been a full week since I've been here and it's been going quite well! I feel pretty at home here- navigating around the subways with little problem, and the business doesn't really bother me like I thought it might. I love getting to see my friends- and although BK seems a bit far from the city- it's okay cuz everyone is around here anyway. So I guess this is it! New York! I don't know how long it takes one to become a New Yorker, but I'm not gonna lie- it's a lot more fun to say I live in NYC than Minnesota. Let's be honest here. Alright cats, gotta get back to being a New Yorka.

I have no updates for you on the moving process. There are 2 days left and all I can do is watch Criminal Minds marathons. Sorry Mr. R.

Carly Simon

Alo! Last night I went to a Depeche Mode concert! It was ridiculous. There's nothing like watching middle aged people dancing around unabashedly.

We're going to drive to New York. It'll be about 20 hours. Wish me luck- I don't know if I'll make in in one piece. It's just way too expensive to travel with my animal children, and since I'm not planning on having any babies anytime soon- this is what I've got! Hope the cats will do okay in the car... I'm going to miss not having Chevy Button with me all the time, but Mr. Rockit's friend is excited to watch him so this will work out well.
My dog has started playing with the cat litter. Gross huh? I'm looking at him right now and he's licking his lips. Disgusting.

On a lighter note, I've been using Sensodyne on my teeth. I will let you know how that works out.

Wednesday, September 2, 2009


Mr. Rockit and my one year anniversary is tomorrow.
Wild huh? We've been through quite a bit I must say,
 moves, NY to Minneapolis to Florida to NY.
Mentally ill roommates...
"Oh I feel like I've known you forever"
Thanks Bridge, PS for making this all happen right?

I'm quite excited for this new chapter to start.
Almost done with work- 2 more days of that, then to the dreaded packing. Really what I'm excited about is having another week w/o work because I really want to get some knitting done.

Wow that's lame.

Waiting is my LEAST favorite game, especially when it's for a move. I always think I'll have enough to do to keep busy- but it's never the case. I never do anything until the last minute so in the meantime I just think.

Travelling with pets is difficult, PS, but not as difficult as I always think it will be. I'm always afraid Chevy's carrier size will be too large- but honestly I think they don't even check. When I flew down here they hardly look at Chevy or the carrier. So hopefully US Airways has the same leniency.

Okay- I'm talking nonsense- I'm going to eat some rice and watch Bones on TNT.

I can't wait.
I can't wait.
I'm blogging so much because I CAN'T WAIT.
NO puedo esperar!
Though my stay in Florida is out to be short lived,
I realized one very important fact.
I miss my buddies terribly.

I will reunite and Blizz will once again paint towns red with glitter and gold.
I'll be a little broke for awhile- but honestly- when am I not?
Things are falling a little too perfectly in the place,
and I am moving full speed ahead without actually considering much except one
thought which is YAYYYYYYYY

Maybe Blidgers and I can get walky talkies again..
I wonder how far they will work in Brooklyn.
Actually I wonder if they'll work in the subway.
Like if I'm on one side of the car and Bridge is on the other side
We'll have to see.

So to all you New Yorkers. I will make NYC a little more sunny.
2 weeks and counting, unless the job I'm vying for wants me sooner.
