Meet Hootie!  I have been wanting to crochet some little owls for a craft show I am going to be in coming in November.  Isn't he cute!  I just sat down and made the little guy up.  I am writing down the pattern and will have it ready soon.  I was thinking of doing a knit version of him, too. took me all of 20 minutes to work him up.  My favorite part, I think the little tassels and the feet make it!

Log Cabin Update:  Done!  And as soon as I get some photos that I am pleased with I will give the tah-dah!  Maybe I can get some this week.

Roosters & Scarves!

I have taken a little "log cabin afghan" break this week to knock out a couple projects, one of those being an order for some of these little guys.  I had forgotten how much fun they are to work up, and so cute, too!  I think I'll make some more in the next few weeks to go on a craft table this fall.

I also have finished up some scarves that I have been working on while I have been crocheting on my log cabin afghan.
One ruffle scarf done!  Believe it or not I used some yarn I bought a Big Lots for $1...yes I said it...$1!  I have quite a little stash of it, too.  I love it.  It is so soft, and the yarn is a lace weight, so it is light and airy.  I do LOVE these ruffle scarves!
One stripe-ity scarf done!  I used Lion Brand "Amazing" yarn in four different colors, changing through out the scarf.  It is all in garter stitch.  So simple and so easy!!  The colors are truly "amazing"!!
One knit scarf done!  I had actually started this quite some time ago, and decided that it needed to be finished up.  It's a simple one, just a k2, p2 pattern.  I used a chenille yarn from Sugar & Cream.  The yarn really worked up into a neat pattern.

So now, what next?  Well, I think I may get another scarf started so I have something to take with me to knitting group, and get back with completing my log cabin.  I can't wait for the big reveal!!!

I hope everyone has a great week!!!

All Done But The Border!

Well, here it is!  All done except the border and some blocking.  I have to say, I love it! 
So, this is probably the last you will see of it until I get it completely done!  I haven't exactly decided on my border yet.  I do have a couple of ideas I am toying with.  I would happy to hear any suggestions y'all could give me!

Everyone have a great week!!
