Hello! How is your November treating you? We are cruising through at high speed.. :-) I've been wanting to crochet a pair of fingerless mitts but hadn't seen a pattern that excited me.. until.. Sue at Mrs. Micawber's blog decided to design a pair and have a CAL (crochet-a-long). I joined right in. Here is my one finished "Limpet Mitt". I love how it turned out! (I planned on painting my fingernails a matching red.. but didn't get around to it.. ) :-)
The pretty swirly "Limpets" turned out pretty.
On Saturday our DIL went to a craft show with her sister, Caleb went with them. They got him a cute crocheted Batman hat and a handmade Batman cape which he was so excited about. Hayden had gone instead with his uncle so he didn't get one. When they returned home, he was sad about that, so Dayle and I hopped in the car and headed to Clackamas to find the craft fair and hope there was a hat and cape like his brother's. Success.. we found both. It was fun to look around at all the crafts and craftspeople.
The cute girl who made all the hats modeled a girl Viking hat complete wit golden braids. If it had fit me I would have gotten it! She is roaring like a Viking maiden for me in this shot. LOL! Did I tell you that my brother got a DNA test and it said we're 37% Scandinavian.. and we had NO idea! I can tell you that I'm pretty happy to be a descendant of the Viking people! :-)
A look back as we left with our bounty.
On the way in we passed the Kettle Corn lady and you would NOT believe how this smelled. Needless to say we bought a bag of sweet and salty HOT popcorn right out of the big copper kettle.
Now both the boys have hats and capes - happy guys!
Kristi made a fun wreath that I thought you would all enjoy - she is doing a secret Santa exchange and this will be shipped to South Carolina.
I have another mitt to crochet and my shawl lace edging to do. Then I plan on making a matching hat. I need to hurry as I want to wear this during the holidays. Are you making things? What? I'm off to swim with Gracie. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
