More Easy Hats!

I have made quite a few of these hats, this time for my pretty relative Miss C, who spent this weekend with us up in the mountains. She had forgotten to bring a hat, but I mended that friday night. She looks great with a norwegian fjord horse at Langedrag Mountain Farm and Wildlife Park.
Yarn: Easy from Sandnes Garn
Pattern: Sandnesgarn Kit 21
Here are more pictures from this weekend:

A bag for Laura

Pattern: #1172 "Scrap Bag Cuties" from Whistlepig Creek Productions
Straps from Cindy's Button Company (32")
Fabric and pattern was my sister-in law Laura's selection. I was not too exited in the beginning, but I like the final result, it is very much her style! Like a cup-cake with frosting. Pattern and fabric was purchased from Sew & Sew Quilts and Fabrics in Stanley, Wisconsin. Here is one of the front porch decorations, cute!
While shooting pictures of this bag, my cat Harry showed up and wanted attention.

Diva hat

Picture from
Knitting Kit: "Diva de Lux hue m /riller", 874801 by Permin. A very quick hat to make, looks good too! A little gold in the yarn will look good when we get closer to Christmas time. The kit is recommended!                                                                                                                                                                               The colors of the ornamental cabbage plant is pritty in fall. Love all seasons, and to explore them with my camera.

Home again!

A great and varied vacation this year, came back refreshed and with some new stash; several handbag fabric and accessories, Christmas raffle projects and some fabric with horse print. First we went to the north of Norway with the midnight sun.
Hawaii, snorkeling with sea turtles, glowing volcanoes and beautiful flowers.
Then to Wisconsin to see family. I did not get much progress on my English paper piecing, but I finished a pair of pot holders for my dear sister in law.
Pattern: Crochet for the Kitchen By Tove Fevang ( pattern slightly adjusted)
A good tutorial on tunisian crochet.
Yarn: Cotton Time by Schahenmeyer, cream and coral. A good yarn that does not split while crocheting!
I am a cat person, but this puppie got to me!
