The Aquarium & WWII Museum

Andrew and I were not able to do anything for our five year Anniversary in April so we moved it to an available weekend. We went to the Aquarium for me and the WWII Museum for Andrew. I had so much fun!! The Aquarium is one of my most favorite places on earth.We got to pet the Stingrays and go into the new Parakeet Room where they all fly around and land on you to eat. Then we when to dinner in New Orleans.

The Penguins were really showing off.
I love the mobiles in the Aquarium lobby.

I always love taking pictures when we're on the road. 
 I couldn't take any pictures in the WWII Museum, but I was really moving. They did a really good job of putting the place together, and the restaurant we ate at The American Sector was so YUMMY!!

As I've said before one of the things I love about going home is seeing the animals. My Grandma has a miniature pony which has a pony its self, so is that Pony a miniature miniature pony?? Well at any rate I love seeing those guys. The mom is very sweet and lovable, but that little pony of her's is a biter.
He may be a biter, but he is still pretty cute.

Easter at Home

Last weekend I was able to go home for Easter, of course I ended up right back at college to work in the dorms over the break. Not mad, just wish things could have been different. At any rate I love being home! I love seeing my family, all the animals, and being able to eat some decent food. 
                   What we call Wild Strawberries, not really sure if thats what they really are.                

A little bird flew right out of there when I was done taking the picture, scared the shit out of me. 

 My Mom's Roses

My family's Bee Boxes

Just some plants I found pretty.

Fluffy Cat came along for my walk.

Knitting News

Its Easter and right before Finals so I haven't been able to knit to much, but I have been getting e-mails back form some of my buyers and they have all been more than positive, one even wants to order some more!!! My favorite would have to be from my friend Steff who got a little pink bow for her little cousin for Easter! On Easter morning I got the cutes text from her saying how much her little cousin loved it then she sent me this pick(sorry about the quality people, but its from a text) 
                                                         It's so sweet, I'm glad she likes it!!

In other Knitting News, my rabbit Rorschach loves to knit! Or just chew on the bag I keep some yarn in ether way its great!
Rorschach is so bad/Cute/sweet/bad!!!!


So a while back I was one my way to a Fun Party(yes a Fun Party, look it up) with some friends when I saw some kids selling Rabbits on the side of the road in a playpen. If your a Facebook friend or a Tumbler follower you know how I feel about rabbits, so we stopped and I feel in LOVE with a little white and black bunny.

                                                                This is when we met.
I was unable to leave him...I'm an animal slut. So I got Rorschach(yep thats his name, from the Watchmen and the test)for $15 and didn't look back. I'm very happy that I did! He is so sweet, he thinks he is a puppy the way he nuzzles and likes to be petted.

As of right now Rorschach is living with Andrew until I can move home from college.

Space Nails

It took forever to get these nails done (probably because I'm a perfectionist and the fact that I use six colors) but I needed a brake from all the studying. All in all I'm really happy with the way they turned out.

In Knitting News, I haven't done any knitting. I've been really studious lately, we will just have to see how all the tests pan out.

What do I do when I'm not Knitting?

A do a lot of stuff, but mainly I work. When I'm not working I'm studying and when I'm not studying I'm reading, baking, playing with The multitude of animals I have and hanging out with my boyfriend Andrew and my friends. The rest of the time I'm chasing said animals, friends, Andrew, inanimate object, other people, other peoples shadows, and planets around with a camera. Or doing something on the computer.

Baking, I don't do as much of this as I would like to. I just don't have the time.

My Pets There are a lot of them, and some of them live with Andrew, some of them stayed at my mom's when I moved off to college. That was probably the hardest thing about college.

Relationship Andrew and I have been together for five years now.

My Bows

I started this Blog to share my knitting with the others who may be interested in who I am and what I do.
My names is Samantha am I'm a knitter from the deep south.

I started knitting a little less than a year ago and now I just cant stop, but Bows are my forte. I've been selling my bows on my Facebook and around my collage campus for about a month now as a way to make some guilt free spending money. I've was a bit surprised by the reaction from people and the fact that they really seem to like my bows and want to buy them. I'm hoping to start and Etsy shop in the near future(perhaps as soon as finals are over and I get back from China).
