Some Finishes

My niece is an enabler, all of 9 years old (or will be in a few months) and when I'm with her, I buy more yarn than I was planning. Of course, with that yarn, I make her things...

She picked this yarn up at the Goshen Fair
Feza Cyprus Mohair. She kept squishing it and playing with it, so I bought it. She wanted a scarf. I said I'd make a keyhole scarf for her. I started it this morning...when it was long enough, I still had some left over, so what to do? Make a hat! The yarn is used for the crown and then I used some black Ella Rae Amity for the rest of the hat. I had enough left for a little flower and viola, a set for Allison...Now I still have the yarn for a ladybug sweater and a purple vest....
A couple weeks ago for my blog swap partner, I also made an owl from Amigurumi World

SuddenExpression aka Laura loved it!


Seems to be a finishing day, as several other bloggers are posting finishes....now to work on my Rhinebeck hat....

Haha ... love an enabler at 'any age'. And the expression on that little owl is fantastic! :D

Um, I think the word love is an understatement! That is the first handknit (or handcrocheted) item I have ever received and has now become one of my prized possessions! The fact that it is an owl just makes it that much better :)

And don't you love enablers!
