A great day for yarnin'

Today is such a blustery, cold day! Great for knitting and coffee or cocoa.

Wanted to play catch up again...sharing my knits. Also, our newly acquired lovebirds...one of which we named Sebbi...she loves to be in the mix. So curious. But I am sure to guard my needles as she loves to hop up and start chewing! 0_o can't have that!

So first up we have:  an order for fingerless mitts. Done 2 at a time using magic loop. Then duplicate stitch letters added for personalization.  I love how the letters turned out! I'm getting better at duplicate stitch. ;)

Next up: the dead fish hat (free pattern on ravelry)...made for fun for my daughter. She's only modeled it once. Lol its cute, but I think I may need to find a new home for it!

Next: I recycled a large knitted project that my daughter grew out of...and only had to purchase one new skein. This hooded scarf turned out really great! Very warm for these last cold days! I may add a section to it in the back tho cuz where hood ends and scarf starts....the neck actually gets cold if you don't have a collar on your jacket. Brrrrr.

Next up is Sebbi our oh so attention starved lovebird lol. She's so into everything. Loves to be in the mix as mentioned above. Ain't she cute?

Lastly and most exciting is a test knit for a friend of mine. She wrote her first pattern for a hooded cowl with cables. So pretty and so cozy! I'm trying to encourage her to try to sell her pattern. I think it's really awesome!
