The Beaded Collection....doesn't that sound so JC Penney's????
As promised here are the pictures of the Odessa Hat
by Grumperina who is amazing.
The scarf w/beads...I wanted the scarf to have swirls like the hat, found a pattern I liked in the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns.
I had to figure out bead placement. I did not put beads all around the whole scarf. I'm all about being warm, and the thought of cold beads on a cold neck gave me 'chills'. As I mentioned before, the wrist warmers are Fetching from Knitty.
This is Tiff modeling her ensemble..
Close up of the hat:
Close up of the scarf - notice the swirl like the hat - this is her favorite!
What's exciting about today? Spring! I took a loooong walk - was that ever good for the spirit! Better than a nap even!
The boys are excited because they'll be fishing soon:
The girls are excited because we'll be swimming soon:
Abbey, bless her canine soul, will actually miss the snow!
Poor babies, it will get better soon.....
