Milo the camera hog

Hi everyone!
I hope everyone's week has been going great! I celebrated me birthday on the 27th and I have also signed up for a few University classes on weekends, which I am very happy about! I did one last week and it was awesome! I also signed up for the new Rec centre(gym) that just opened by my place to go workout, skate and swim, I am sooo excited!
I wanted to take a picture to show the different size wool I have, the HUGE one at walmart, a regular one, and one regular after I made 1 scarf. Well if anyone knows my dog Milo, they know he LOVES getting his picture taken. I'm not even sure why, because he really has no idea what's going on, but I guess he likes the attention! I set up these 3 balls of wool and he immediately posed in line with them! He even turned a different angle, I didn't touch or move him at all! Oh he just cracks me up! I thought I would share this moment with all of you!

Fluffy wool & posing dogs,

How to Knit a Simple Scarf

  Here is my newest video on how to knit a scarf, my simple & easy way! I am making scarves to donate to the Homeless & Women's shelters! It is a lot of work, so far I have 3 & a 1/2 done, my goal is 20!! I bought 10 rolls of yarn/wool from Michael's when they had a big sale, and I can make about 2 out of a roll! I also found a super gigantic roll of black wool at Wal*Mart for $10 that I figure I can probably get 5 out of, to make some plain simple ones. If anyone would like to join me & make some scarfs as well, please feel free! I usually knit when I am watching t.v or a movie, & it is super duper easy to do!!
Enjoy!!

My favourite kind of day

 Its a freezing cold, but beautiful day today, its the kind of day to stay in with a cup of hot cocoa or tea and catch up on stuff. I *made* myself do my housework this morning before I let the blogging begin! haha I am going to edit a video today and hopefully have that posted by this evening, I've ordered a good mic to do sound-overs on some of my videos, but it probably won't be here for another 2 weeks or so. I will have to do without for now, but it will hopefully make my videos MUCH better, especially when I do cooking episodes.
  Right now I'm watching 'the diary of Anne Frank' the 2009 version on Netflix, with Milo laying in my lap. To the iMovie editing I go! Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
