I have some FO's too and also plenty of WIP's .....
The little pumpkin on the right is an ornament that I'm making. I want to have ornaments for each holiday on a little tree I have that I will leave up all year round. This is the first Halloween ornament. I got the free pattern over on the Lion Brand website and they have quite a few for Halloween. They're also highly rated and easy...LOVE that! This little pumpkin needs his/her face embroidered and a little stem/hanger. Next up is a witches hat. These count towards my "holiday" decorating and ornaments projects.
As for the Irish Hiking Scarf.....I finished the 3rd skein and it isn't big enough to throw over your shoulder (my test for a truly useful scarf in Winter). I happened to have another skein "just in case" so I guess I'm not done with it yet.
Look at my leaves that are falling! I am having so much fun with these! It took me a couple to get the gist of the pattern but now I can't stop! I'm making a Fall garland with them using Noro Kureyon yarn. One skein makes about 4 and you get different leaves each time which is SO cool! I would not have been that attracted to the original pattern if it hadn't been for Dawn over at Fiddlesticks who was the one who thought to use the ever changing colors of the Noro Kureyon. Brilliant!!! Perfect for Fall leaves.
The last one on the left is from a new skein in a different colorway but the other 4 are all from the same skein....amazing, huh? I am having way too much fun with these! Thank you so much Dawn! Visit her website and you will be blown away by her creativity! She makes gorgeous stuff!
