Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great week! I had a triple play week. I am not sure this has ever happened before or will ever happen again, so I gotta live it up! I finished 3, YES THREE, items....okay, they are not HUGE items, but they are finished just the same.
Item 1 is the Fox Cowl I made for a friend's daughter.....I was babysitting Celeste yesterday, so I got her to model it for me. There are supposed to be two buttons in the front, but I do not have any buttons....so I will have to look for some (Hey, I am still calling it finished!)
Then, I have a finished COWL where I have not even had a chance to tell you about the yarn being a stash enhancement.....my mother asked me to make a cowl (she called it an eternity scarf) for a friend of hers....I recommended the Gaptastic Cowl (because it has been on my list forever!) and she liked it. She picked out some yarn, I ordered it...it came in on Wednesday and I finished on Sunday! It was a great knit....I see more of these in my future...I am actually thinking of casting on one for me in black! I played a little bit of Yarn Chicken...but I won!
Then....I finished my Scarf Swap Scarf. I ordered a few extras for my scarf swap recipient and it came in last week....so I am all ready to mail off my scarf swap....I just need to wait till Nov 1 to mail it.....Come on November! I do not want to ruin the surprise for my scarf swap recipient....so I had to fudge the picture a little....but I promise it is done and it is blocking!
I have a couple of stash enhancements......I participated in a "SWAP" and got some of the new Hiya Hiya Point Protectors......aren't they cute?
I got a cool wine glass when I ordered that knit picks yarn above for my mom's friend's cowl.....this wine glass went on sale right after I bought it...but Knit Picks gave me on account credit and I ordered some more.....I love this wine glass! Notice how full I had to fill it in order to be able to read what it says?
I started a new hat this past weekend too (Hey, I did finish 3 things!).....the Down Cellar Studio Podcast had a Rhinebeck Weekend Show the Love KAL start....so this will count towards that KAL and also for my Loopy Academy.....the pattern is called "Le bonnet d'Elsa" and I think it will be super cute!
I think that is all I have.....I leave you with a picture of Antonio (Happy Birthday on Thursday) that Paige sent me.....a beautiful picture of Celeste smiling...and a picture of me with my son.....I wore my hypercrazy to go see him this past weekend and he loved it.....Oh, I should give some credit on my FO's to Jaime my boyfriend.....as he drove the whole way to see Erich and back....which is probably why I finished 3 things....thanks Babe!
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
