Changes And Happy New Year

Well, I finally did it.  I finally changed my logo and the color on my etsy shop, my blog, my twitter account and facebook.  Finally!  It’s something that I have been wanting to do for a long time, I think almost a year, it’s been in the back of my mind, to change it.
Here’s my old logo
But after taking a poll, kind of my own informative questioning on Facebook and on Etsy, I found that nobody really knows what this is.  I’ve been told many different things about what people thought it looked like, from scary eyes from an arabian nights movie to a ninja knitting.  (It’s suppose to be a human giant letter “Z” knitting).  Most people don’t even call me by my full name, they just call me “Z”, so that’s kind of where the idea of the logo has come from.  But like I mentioned earlier, nobody knows what it looks like.  But not only that, I’ve kind of moved on from this logo.  It’s kind of hard to explain.  I’ve moved on from the logo and the colors as well.
Anyway, it’s kind of silly, to be so wishy washy on something so silly and simple and inconsequential as a logo, but that’s where I was at. 
Happy New Year to everybody!!!!

Merry Christmas And Crochet Cluster Beanie

I’ll be busy for a while with this one pound of yarn.

This is what I have made with the yarn so far.  I’m thinking maybe I can knit a scarf to go with it, and then maybe crochet some fingerless gloves.  I crocheted some gloves before, but I had messed up on them, so I never finished the second pair.  They didn’t turn out exactly like what the directions called for, but hopefully I will do better this second time around.
By the way, Merry Christmas everybody.  I hope all of you have a blessed Christmas and New Year

All That Glitters Ain’t Gold

So I bought this thread at Michael’s a few weeks back.  Thinking that I can use this to add some sparkle and glitter to my yarn.  Oh my goodness, what a headache, honestly.  I’m not writing this to put down this particular product, just maybe as I type this and somebody reads this, maybe you can tell me what I’m doing wrong.  This thread is so hard to work with, as far as adding it into my crocheting.  If anybody has any ideas on ways to help me that would be great.
I really like the color of this thread and the way it sparkles, and I will be posting again to show what I had used some of this thread for, so you can see my work.  But my goodness, this is hard to work with.
Any suggestions and other ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks!
