I am earning points to trade in for cash cards over at GiftHulk!!

Okay, so I know that I am supposed to be blogging about my knits and crochets. But I really want to get down to what I've been doing lately. As of late(as of late, I mean as of yesterday morning.), I have joined GiftHulk. A reward site where you do tasks and receive points in which you can exchange for prizes. Now, I set a pretty big goal for myself. I want a $50 paypal card(which is like 50,000 HC) **HC=Hulk Coins. And you know, I'm not doing too bad actually. Currently I am at 482 HC. I'd have more if I didn't take so many breaks from my laptop last night.
This site is easy and earning points is more simpler than what I usually earn on average over at swagbucks. I mean swagbucks is fun and easy too. But I can only go for so long before it drives me bonkers only earning maybe 2 SB in a span of 30 mins for a minimal task like playing a game, or watching vids.
With GiftHulk, I can probably earn way more in 30 minutes than I would normally earn on SB. I've sent some codes out so far to some family members (They are considering it. And I know my sister is planning on joining sometime today.) and I am slowly working my way into moving my promotions over to Tumblr. Maybe sometime this weekend coming up, when I have a lot more time on my hands.(I would today, but I have a lot of different appointments that I have to get too today.)

Here I will provide you with my link

Or you can go directly to the site and register with GiftHulk. From there you can enter my Code SP613804.

Now I am not going to twist your arm and say JOIN JOIN JOIN. If I was then I'd make a special sign just for this. And lets just say that it would be filled with so many "!!" that you'd think there still wasn't enough of them.
But honestly, I mean, you should really join though. I think it's fun and easy. And you would too! You wouldn't know unless you tried. Right?
You also get points for enlisting people to GiftHulk! Also, they have sweepstakes on cash cards as well! GiftHulk is also great for those people like me who need a way to afford their online spending habits. Because trust me, when I get paid, and I am at home. The money in my bank account disappears through e-check whenever I hit those stores.
Being a chronic spender, and a person who is usually online after hours, I find this to be perfect.
So why not join today?? I promise with my whole heart that it would be fun!!! And it would most definitely be worth the time spent on here.

((BY THE WAY, I have not been hacked, and this is actually me. If you need any proof of my on this site then I will definitely take a picture of my online with my yarns around me and on this site. If it was requested anyways. I'm just letting you know that this isn't a scam.))

So What I've done the past few months.

Okay! So I know its been a while since I last updated this blog. So I have done some things while I wasn't updating this. (It's like been a year! Oh gods! I'm so sorry!!)
Anyways yeah. I have made some items to sell, which are currently up on ebay at the moment. I know they aren't cheap, but a lot of time and effort went into these items. And I'm very proud to have done them.
Just raising a little money to help around the house, its been a little tough because I quit my job to help with my very sick grandfather and because the job was so stressful, I ended up going to work really run down and sick. And of course to buy more yarn, but not because I am not running low.  It's because I like to have a selection. So here are the things that I made as gifts for Christmas for my family this past christmas. And some of them were for a baby shower not too long ago.

The Mitts can be found here: Two Tone Baby Mitts

The hat pattern can be found here: Cow hat pattern

This one was for my friends girlfriend.

This one is almost finished, I just have a row of squares left and the I add a warm lining. This was for my grandmother.

For my little brother who likes Adventure time. 
Pattern can be found here: (I lost it, but I'll edit this post when I find it.)

Pattern can be found here:Granny Sqaure Slippers

Made for my dad.
Pattern can be found here: (See the link above.)

This Mofo was made for my friend. Whom made me a lovely bracer for my christmas/late birthday present. My gift to him took me 3 weeks. (I'll get a better picture off of him. I swear this scarf is like 5'8 feet long.
Pattern can be found here: Paul's "Sweet Guy" Scarf

Anyways, thats all I really have to say for now. Other than Great job to the pattern creators!!! All these patterns came out beautifully!!! And so breath taking! I wanted to keep all these lovely gifts to myself!!!

Grow Your Blog- Introduce yourself-

Hey there! So I guess it's time that whomever is reading this will get to know my name. My name is Sammyy. But! I call myself Acedia. Because I can usually never be bothered to do anything. Although I do “wake up” and get things done. Usually it is knitting and crocheting. And I am very determined to get all my projects finished. X/ You are welcome to call me by either name.
What I do here in my blog is mainly just Crocheting and Knitting.
I am still a little new to this. Because two years ago, I have gotten back into this. I have learned knitting from my stepfather's grandmother. And I taught myself crocheting. It is fun, and I enjoy them both.
I mainly use them for relieving my stress and if I need to think. Thought sometimes, I get frustrated in my project and tend to leave it. However, I am very eager to get all this going and having things to finish.
I am attending Collage Prep right now. And I am in my second semester. And next winter semester, I will be going in for my Vet Tech. And soon after that, I go back in to be a Livestock or a Large animal vet.

Progress made is time lost

All righty now. Day three of my project, ahh, I guess you can say that I am on row six out of twenty-two. BUT there are 237 stitches in all that I have to work through. Although, I've been working on it  whenever I've gotten the time. I had loads of time during the drive two and from Ashcroft. (A town about an hour and a half away.)

But I also started a new project this morning before noon. It has 71 55x55 squares. x.x But! I can get at least two or three done by tonight. As for the crochet though, I plan on doing that during homework. Also, I was looking at some other patterns and I saw this very neat and pretty and wearable pattern. Ahhh.. I think my girlfriend will love it.
In between all these I am writing some stories as well as doing my homework, as well as driving lessons. X/ Blah. But you know, getting all this homework done now will allow me to work faster on my projects. (And let me have a weekend off. Ahh~) I plan to get ahead in Math(what ever is left in math 0400 [I was told to fix a couple chapters and review for my exam. I was allowed to have an extentison... x.x], and starting on math 0500) and Biology 062. Since English 0500 and 0600, Human services, and Social science are "In Class" Courses, There will also be enough time for those as well.

Ahh, well enough of school talk, I intend to finish, Everything, I have started on. Ah, So I will post pictures of the finish projects and the patterns I've used or made for this Stocking(box) exchange with my girlfriend.
Anyways, now I shall go back to my projects.

Stocking(box) new projects.

Okay, so here we go.. Today I decided that a couple projects I've been doing was taking a little too long. And I am supposed to finish this by Jan.15th, 16th? :3 But you know, I found some easier and less complicated gifts for a stocking exchange.(Let's be honest, I'm still learning. *sweats*) But this one was really cool. And I really wanted to do it. (Ahem... So... I do not have a stocking for you. But It shall be in a festive box.) derp.
So this is one of them that I started. I am not saying what it is until she's gotten it. haha. 
As you see, I've had  a chocolate, and in the very back, some sparkling 
 grapefruit juice. WHICH by the way, sparked my need to do this. AS I realized that next week was deadline. Ahaa, Oh well. At least I have four other things finished for the stocking(box).

(I say box because I do not know how all of this would fit into a stocking honestly... u.u')
Mom asked me what a blog was. and I told her its a place where I talk about random crap. She said "You better not have me in there... or I'll kill you." Jokingly of course
and I said "Of course I have a blogged about you. I made you those cup sleeves for you right?" hahaaaaa...

anyways aside from that. blah, I had driving lessons tonight. But I am confident that my girlfriend will love what I put in the stocking (box).

Coffe Cup Cozies + Patterns

Today I have done two different cup cozies for my mother. And she likes them. I've been trying to make stuff for a while now and finish what I was already working on.
But as you've seen I am very slow with updates, or rather right now at the moment, I am pretty lazy at times too. But since this is the new year. I am going to try and get things done faster... x.x And update more. haha
The blue one found here: Blue Cup Cozy
The Tri-colour one found here: Tri-colour Cup Cozy

One took me only fifteen minutes, and the other took about an hour. Watching Law & Order: Special Victims unit

I am feeling very crafty today.
Although, I am not as Diligent as my wonderful girlfriend. Ahhhh

Now I must go back to finish my stocking project.

RavenClaw WIPS

Over the course of the summer, I've come really close to finishing this RavenClaw bag for Petra. It's a birthday gift. And the a couple of the times that I've almost finished it, I always found some new way that I think will improve it. And one time, two of my circular needles broke and then I was trying to finish it while doing double knitting on two straight needles. I finished the bag fortunately and was supposed to go to petras the following day after. I was so excited that I had it beside me so I could keep it safe while I slept.
My moms boyfriend put the puppy we got onto my bed, and I didn't know until I heard ripping noises. i wake up pissed off because there was Petra's birthday gift. ruined and i didn't have any circular needles to finish it.
So I wanted to try doing it by sides. which was faster, but I didn't like how I did it. "
now I'm doing it in a circular motion while double knitting. My aim is to be done by at least sometime in September. BEFORE my birthday.

SO HERE I GO. I'll be posting as many WIP'S as I can.

This is one out of three that I've taken. It took me some time to get used to the double knitting.

Here is two out of three that I've taken. I was getting there faster. Getting more used to it.

This is three out of three that I've taken. Eh... It was taken in the same day, but I was certainly getting somewhere fast. I'll post some more as soon as I can.
