Spring time fun!

I really need to stop putting things off. Ive got no excuse for it other then just deciding to go and do other things instead or not wanting to form proper sentences. Actually do I ever form proper sentences even what I think I want too?!??
I finished my Spring Time Hippos a week ago.. LOOK!
Arent they pretty? I am still very upset at one of them for making me knit and rip and reknit and rerip the heel of it.. But Im getting over it because they are finished! So comfy too! :)
Some information for you one these cutie patooties!
Pattern is Pomatomus by Cookie A
Yarn is Wendy Happy 75% Bamboo 25% Nylon in colour Aquarius (I didnt realise they were named for star signs until I went to look something up I just liked the colours! Im a Capricorn)
Knit on 2.25mm DPNS my purple ones that Im madly in love with becauses they are purple!
This is the second time Ive knit this pattern and I still loved it this time round. They took AGES to do becauses I started out kniting on them only one day a week and then finally took them up as my main knitting project and finished them right away (well after fighting the heel on tthe second sock for forgetting where I was!) I would knit this pattern over and over its just pretty to me! :)
see even they are in love with each other! :)

Im currently crocheting the cover project of the current Interweave Crochet. Its going smoothly after adjusting the amount of stitches I started with. I for some reason had it like 20 some odd inches long and it werent supposed to be that long so Ive adjusted and now goiing smoothly along. Almost finished with the front bottom half to go and do the same thing for the back bottom half. :) Okay here have a look...
This is Bernat Satin and is 100% Acrylic, my mom sent it to me as a gift. And its lovely... but she sent me the grey I made the Feb Lady sweater from to go with it and Im not using the two together so this pink on its own is very umm PINK can you dye acrylic yarn without ruining it and with it actaully taking?? Im not sure what colour I will do it but Im sure when I finish I will want to change the colour my mom is cool with me doing this, I didnt want to hurt her feelings! But I just need to know if it will work before I waste the money....

Also last night I traced out a shirt pattern and today I washed the material its currently drying. So hopefully I will be cutting that out soon and start sewing that up and have a new summer shirt. I do still need to trace out the shorts that I want to do and wash the material for those but that will wait till later.

Have a good day and Ill be back when I finish something else to show! :)
