New Year, New blog Look!

Happy New Year!!!!
Happy New Year everyone! It's actually 12:42am, and I'm very tired! It's been a great Christmas break so far! It started out with visiting my boyfriend and his family in North Carolina, then my family in Georgia, Virginia for the night, and now finally home in New Hampshire! I'm very tired since we traveled two days straight in the car from Georgia to New Hampshire.
Happy New Years,
Anna Elizabeth Designs. : )

Hobby Lobby Part Two & 2011 Resolutions

What a trip! We got back last night, well not late-late. I thought it was going to be a quick trip, however it turned into a two hour trip to Hobby Lobby! My Mom and I do this each time we come to Georgia to visit family (or we try to). I thought there was going to be a lot more yarn, than just two aisles- but I guess that's a lot! I did get many yarns, and planned some projects for the upcoming year, 2011!! One of the projects I've started yesterday, but it's a gift for someone (so no details on the blog for this one..) The list of projects are down below.

2011 Knitting Projects Planned:
These are finishing in no rush. You can't rush knitting and you can't rush art. : ).
1.) My Dad's scarf. I have 20 inches done in the black, and need 36inches in the area I'm working on. (I only knit scarfs for family and close friends)
2.) My brother's Super Mario blanket for college. I've got several designs done like: Lugi, Toad, Bowser, and Yoshi. There's more to come. The Bowser's Presentation Photo will be up on Facebook (and on here) this weekend..
3.) Baby Girl Blanket: I miss blankets, and I love long term projects such as these. I probably start this once my main projects above are finished. This will be a long while before I even start the project. So this is a defiantly 2011 goal.

Hobby Lobby! Part One

I was going to write about the top three craft stores I love to shop at, however I'm mainly excited to go to Hobby Lobby today after lunch! I would've posted the logo here but I can't seem to find a way to use their link...

But here's their official website:
We don't have a Hobby Lobby in Virginia (where I go to school) or in New Hampshire (where I live). I'm currently in Georgia visiting family, and there's a Hobby Lobby near where we are. To me it's the hugest craft store. We like to take annual shopping trips there. : ). I'm looking forward to going today!! Part Two blog post will be coming a long once I get back from our annual shopping trip!!

Baby Shower Gift Set (Revision)

Baby Shower Gift Set Special
Post #2-No baby booties. REVISION.

Baby Shower Gift Set Special Revision:
1.) Baby Boy Hat
2.) Pink Baby Headband
3.) Blue Baby Headband
4.) Baby Girl Hat.
THERE ARE NO BABY BOOTIES! I've tried to make baby booties last night with the same pattern, just trying something different. However, it turned out okay, but it just did not look right with the set. Plus without the baby booties, I can have the set ready to go for Christmas, and have a sale on New Years Day for the Baby Shower Gift Set.

Baby Shower Gift Set Completion:
1.) Baby Boy Hat (this hat is defiantly done!)
I know there's not a lot done quite yet, but I will be working on the headbands tonight.

Baby Shower Gift Set Progress:
1.) Pink Baby Headband

2.) Blue Baby Headband.

Updates, Updates, Updates!



COLORS of the Baby Shower Gift Set:
Pink & Blue

This post is screaming updates! I've been knitting straight two days in a row, with very few breaks. I just love Christmas break!! (We get a whole month off, which is quite a blessing! I defiantly needed a break and to catch up on rest & of course, knitting!) Yesterday I've started on a new set of yellow baby booties, and I finished them today! Hopefully they'll be on Etsy tonight or tomorrow. Down bellow is how the "Baby Shower Gift Set" (This is a special! I think I may doing these once a month, let's see how this set goes!) is coming along! Oh yes, I forgot to mention since I am doing a special set for the first time, there will be posts about it!

Baby Shower Gift Set Completion
1.) Baby Boy Hat: Pink is the brim of the hat, and the brim has a unique pattern-unlike most of my hats. The body is blue and attached of the hat is a blue and pink pom pom (NOTE: Attached VERY securely!)

Baby Shower Gift Set More to Come
A. Two Baby Headbands
-a baby blue and baby pink colors headband to match the theme of the Baby Shower Gift Set.
B. Baby Girl Hat (I've just started it today, hopefully it'll be finished by tonight or tomorrow night).
C. Baby Booties!! (I will probably get to this tomorrow, or this weekend.)

Pink & Blue
As you can see the colors are pink & blue themed! This will be perfect for a baby shower gift!

Happy Knitting day!

This really has been a full knitting day, better than I actually expected! It started off with knitting "Bowswer" from Super Mario (or something like that), for my brother's blanket. Then I proceeded to begin yellow baby booties (got one yellow baby bootie done today!) I also completed a baby hat, and started a baby headband.

Some knitting items heading your way:
Baby Shower Gift Set
This is a special! It'll include...
1.) A Baby Boy hat,
2.) A baby girl hat,
3.) A baby headband,
4.) Baby booties.

These colors have blue and pink of course!

Yellow Baby booties
-The title says all, yellow baby booties, however it may come with either purple pom poms or blue pom poms. I'm in the early stage of creating the booties, so I'm not exactly sure quite yet of how the booties will turn out.

Have yourself a very Merry Christmas!

Yesterday was Liberty University's annual Christmas Convo. (You can Youtube it, at least I think). I went with my best friends & roomies. Note, Megan isn't really our roomie, but our additional fourth roomie (inside joke...) but here is my four roomies at Christmas Convo! Oh by the way, Christmas Convo is a convo that students don't want to miss. It's a chance for Liberty to show their sense of humor in comedy over what took place in the convos we had in the semester.

1.) Sierra, me, Tanya & Megan (The Four Roomies)
2.) Megan & Me
3.) The Three Roomies, Me, Tanya, and Sierra.

Merry Christmas!

Last day of Classes

Okay so this hat is defiantly for Christmas! It is on ANNA ELIAZBETH DESIGNS now!!! It is the first Christmas hat of my shop.
So today officially marks the last day of classes! It has been a wonderful and amazing, yet difficult and hard (when it comes to academics) semester! I can't believe it already almost over. Only four exams is keeping me from going home on Tuesday, and well of course White Glove! There's so many things I can say why my semester was amazing, but that would take up the whole page!

Seasons greetings and Merry Christmas!
