Here was the point of no return (and the point where I say to myself, "What was I thinking?"):
Now I wasn't very fond of the 20 year old floral carpet, but I'm not sure how much better this is:
I have a lot of work ahead of me!
BTW, I did this all by myself. I'm very sore and tired. Tomorrow, the dining room?

I've got a ton of ideas that I just don't have time for. Maybe once school starts I can devote more time to my passion. I really want to design some lace patterns, but that takes some serious hard-work. We'll see. Good thing I love what I do!

Pattern will be available for immediate download for $7.
Get you needles and yarn ready!
Gauge is 5 sts per 1", I use #6 needles with worsted weight (but I'm a loose knitter). Knit in the round for the body, flat for the crotch.
Skill level: Not beginner! I would say more intermediate/advanced beginner. Do not pick this as your first knitting project or you will hate me :-)
Cottage License rules will be different for this pattern. Please see my Hyena Cart for more details http://hyenacart.com/adorabubbleknits
Check out this cutie!

Anyway, here is what is coming up:
I prefer vertical stripes, so I made the britches sideways. This is my second attempt and I was able to figure out how to do a gusset!!! I do like this gusset, but I have an idea for a better one. So I'll make one more pair before I write up the pattern. Also, I was short on the trim color so the waist band isn't as wide as I would like. Just a proto-type.
Crochet Britches. These surprised me. I'm usually not a big crochet fan, but I really like how these turned out (these are made by my buddy Christi).
Turtle Butt should be done hopefully next week (cross my fingers).
More to come...

I have a bunch of things I have to photograph and only a camera with a broken screen (the first one that broke). Ugh!

Turtle Butt is actually really, and I'm not lyin', close to being done. My wonderful testers are knittin' up a fury and giving me some great feedback. My goal is to have this thing ready to be published in 2 weeks. Whew!

Kiddo is lovin' the animals. He's my helper.
Good news on Turtle Butt! I was finally able to send the rough draft off to my testers last night. So, depending on how fast they knit and how fast I edit, Turtle Butt will be ready for release very soon (no pressure ladies!).
Also, I finally got the rough draft of the Crochet Britches pattern done. Working on some edits today that we found last night.
And, I've got 2 custom TB that I'm working on now. One is in brown and turquoise, so cool! Once these are done, I think I need a break from Turtle Butts :-) Too bad kiddo needs a new pair!

Sam (white wether), Dulce Vita (dark doe), and Willy (white wether). It fun to see their personalities. No 2 goats are the same. Dulce is a little timid, but is warming up to me. Willy is a wee thing with gorgeous hair, very friendly, likes to eat out of my hand. Sam is more of a moose and also friendly, likes to try and eat my clothes. Willy was watching intently as I was opening the gate. I'm pretty sure he's a smart one. Dulce fleece is almost full (yipee!) and Sam is close as well. They are so soft to pet. I want to follow them around and knit right off their backs (I wish I could).
