I finished my Owl hat from Ravelry (the Who? hat) and loved knitting this one. I added eyes to every other owl and I had 10 owls in total. I used a stash skein of Lion Brand and the end result is fine, but I recommend knitting in a yarn with more wool!

I love free patterns and I love quick knit patterns that are free :) I finished up a 3-hour cowl for my sister-in-law and will pop it into the mail tomorrow. I hope she likes it, fingers crossed. I used Lion Brand Homespun I had in the stash, but could not find the colorway name/number. It knit up nice and soft and squishy.
And just as awesome as free patterns are zombie cups :) My niece and nephew gave me this for Christmas and I LOVE it so much! Already had coffee in it this morning and now my favorite cup of all time.

I finally took pictures of the Bohemia Fibers roving of the month October fiber that I spun and 2 plied.
I love her fibers, she does a beautiful job on her products and I highly recommend you give her a try if you are in the market for yarn or roving.

A belated Happy Thanksgiving. I ate too much, knitted way too little, and didn't sleep late enough, but it was a good one. AND my sister took a pic of me and my mammaw and here she is :) Best mammaw in the world! (and makes the best sweet potato casserole known to man)

I finished spinning and 2plying a mystery roving I had received in a swap. It is a unknown fiber, unknown dyer, but known smile maker.
I will make me a pair of fingerless mitts with my Bramblewood and be tickled browns and blues :) to wear them.
Next on the wheel will be this lovely braid from a club I joined...Bohemia Fibers, this is the October colors...gorgeous!!!!!! It is Falkland and will be my first time spinning Falkland, I'm scared! Off now to divide and weigh and do my best to get my bobbins even for once in my life!
Happy knitting ya'll

I finished my Autumnal mitts (free pattern on Ravelry ) and adored this pattern. These are a gift, so I have to cast on a pair for me next. Guys, love this pattern, go knit a pair this winter for yourself. The pic does not show the pattern, but they have a lovely trellisy look to them.
Also finished my Star Crossed Slouchy beret and yes, love this too!
I dyed the yarn with Kool-aid and was thinking of dying it again, but will try out the pink and see how it works for me.
And while I was weaving in seams, my puppies were sleeping. Love how Ava drapes herself over anything, including Finley.

More gloves have been completed in the house, thank goodness! Finished a quick pair of bulky Seed Stitch fingerless mitts. Love them! Made from a recycled sweater (kool-aid dyed). (Cameo of Finley's nose in the pic...go Finley!)Soaring Hearts mitts and kind of means I did finish 2 right hands, almost finished a left hand and then ran out of yarn.....and can't find it! I have tried Ravelry and no one has this yarn, tried 3 yarn stores, nope they don't either. So until I can find it I have kind of finished mitts!
Back to the internet search.....

I broke the Star Crossed Slouchy-beret out of it's hiding bag and began working on it a little more and hope to finish it by next week.
Remember...I am a SLOW knitter, don't pressure me!
Ava and Finley wish you a happy day as well....they allow me to dress them up for trick-or-treating :)
Save the Reese's cups for me!
