Planner Pages

      I hope you are all staying safe during Hurricane Sandy. I am currently at a hotel since we dont have power!

      I saw a planner that looked really functional and looked like it would work great,but it cost money. Money is not a big deal except I dont have any money, haha! I made these so I wouldnt have to pay and I figured - why not share it with you! Here they are:

Planner Right Side

Planner Left Side

                                           Just print - hole punch, and put it in a binder!
                                                 Happy Organizing!

Downloading Youtube Videos

Hey FLYkids!
I realize it has been a little while - I am working on a few things. This post, however, is a tutorial to download Youtube videos as MP3 music so you can put them on your MP3 player or iPod. This is the quickest way I have found to download the youtube videos. Other ways I have found take too much time, effort, and take way too many steps. This is so simple.

1. Click here

2. Copy the youtube address

5. Paste where you see the youtube address on the website

6. Click Convert Video

7. When it finishes converting press download

8.  A little box will pop up at the bottom of your screen - press open.

9. Create a playlist in your music player ( I am using Windows Media player)

10. When the music is done opening a screen will pop op with the song -like this
When you put your cursor over this screen a little icon will popup with three squares and an arrow. Click that.
11. You will now see the playlist and the song on the right side - drag the song to the playlist.
This is so much quicker than it sounds - I swear!
Have fun!

Crafty Pinner: Chunky Fish Net Baby Blanket

Hey Flykids!
Today I bring you a pattern made up by me (kind of..)
I saw this blanket on pinterest but it was a blanket to buy not a pattern so I found a crochet stitch and altered it, THEN I got to work making this blanket. This is probably the fastest blanket I have ever made (and I make alot) This is not as much a blanket to keep the baby warm as much as it is for pictures.

I am using a size K boye hook. It is just a normal yarn - not thick, not especially soft, etc.
I did a chain the width I want the blanket to be. The stitch used is what I call the Semi-V stitch its based on the V -stitch but different (haha..)

Intro To Fish Net Baby Blanket
Chain and First Row
The Semi V Stitch 2nd Row and rest of Blanket
How to do the Chain Stitch
How to make a Slip Knot
How to do the Double Crochet Stitch
How to finish, and weave in ends
The first three videos are mine and the rest come from various youtubers.  
Happy Crocheting!
