Happy Holidays!

I haven't blogged in quite some time. I have been doing a lot of cooking and baking. I am working on knitting a red hat.

My fave sites for vegan recipes are theppk.com and veganyumyum.com. Check them out!

These are from theppk.com and they are awesome! They look like little snowballs!

***I also made a funfetti scarf on the circs (size 35) I think I binded off too tightly cuz it did a weird twisty thing... but it was my first thing I ever made on circs and it is still pretty and I love it!

***I also made a funfetti scarf on my Speed Stix my mom got me. (size 50 needles!) It only used one ball of yarn! decent length too. I think that was 20 stitches across. Worked all in garter. Only a few hours total to make. I don't knit very fast though.

New to blogger

Hello everyone. This is my first blogger post! I decided to join blogger because there seems to be a lot of vegan knitters and crafters here. If you are vegan or a vegetarian send me a message or something. I don't know how the messages work here yet. I hope to make lots of friends here!

I am a 22 year old college student. I have a degree in graphic design and am currently studying fine arts. I love art, music, movies, vegan food, vegan knitting, meditation, nature, taking photos and making videos. I have 2 cats. I love them lots! I have a boyfriend who I love sooo much. I am new to knitting. I have been vegan for almost 3 years and vegetarian a total of almost 5 years.

I enjoy blogs and networking and video sites. I am also on myspace, youtube, spruzeme, and livevideo. Please welcome me to the site and don't be shy, I love making friends!
