Housewarming


I've just finished these coordinating pillows for friends who are settling into a new house. I've had these yarns hanging around for a while now, all they needed were cool buttons and a fun pattern (which you'll recognize - it's becoming an "oldie but goodie"!). Happy Thanksgiving!

Xmas Olympic Hat





A few things are finally getting finished this week! This one is the Olympic Reindeer Hat pattern by Helena Bristow (free on Ravelry); I added the USA letters as a modification. Although our colorwork theme isn't officially scheduled to begin until 2012, this is the second Olympic Hat I've made this year! I've found myself pleasantly surprised at how easy and fun it is to work with two colors at a time!

Felted Wine Cozy Prototype



Here is the first of several felted wine cozies, made with leftover Olympic Hat yarn (Elann Highland Wool) and based on the Felted Wine Caddy pattern by Cricket Toomey (also free on Ravelry). I'm making a few others, each with their own modification and design. This is a fast and fun project, and is perfect for the holidays!
