Hello ladies… time for my weekend update on this weeks needle work Smile

First  I want to show my very first owl – finished last night. I thought I would raffle a family of 3 owls (one more with body in green and one with a body in bright blue/teal) next Saturday on Ebay for Brandon. I hope I can get them finished this week. The back side of the owl has the same pattern as the front – they are actually quite large- nice size for babies hands or just to display in the house.
Owl yarn: Patons and Debbie Bliss 100% cotton yarn


Sorry all photos are a bit blurry.. I just quickly took them on the way downstairs Smile this one is already in use for Niklas – made completely out of scrap pieces. the knitting was done quickly but waving all these loose ends in – was really a pain.
100% Debbie Bliss Cotton Yarn – Aran Weight

Stuff in the making – here are some granny flowers – this is going to be a bag for Spring – iam going to line the bag with matching fabric. This project is on hold for now but I have all the numbers of flowers I need.
Yarn: 100% cotton by Sugar n Cream purple, yellow and white


Next is a shawl / Dreieckstuch I started last week Saturday – and iam almost finished with it. Just 2 more rows in the pattern and than I have to do the lace border. I had this yarn sitting for almost 1 yearn – got it on sale, and never had an idea what to make with it until I found a photo of the shawl in the picture below.


The pattern is called “ Trillian” and omg.. it is so easy to knit.. I can actually watch TV while doing it. My yarn is by Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted Yarn in color Amish. it is very soft 100% Superwash wool. Like that!
sooo… the girl in the photo below is NOT ME Smile I got it out of the pattern I purchased. The yarn her shawl is made – is very thin.. knitted on only 2 mm needles. I used for mine 11 US sized needles I am going to use 2.5 skeins for the shawl and I will have enough left from the 3 skein to make  matching gloves or a hat. I will see. The set will be gifted for Christmas.


That’s it for today.. I know I promised one of you a tutorial how to make the rose bud I used on my crochet hanger. I have not forgotten. I try to get it all done.
As always with love
