Just to prove that something DOES get accomplished here at Chez Magpie....
Two little grandsons will be getting these for Christmas. Hats are the 'Tot Lot #9: Watch Cap" from HERE. And the mittens are the Basic Four Needle Mittens from a booklet 'Next Steps Seven: Mittens and Gloves' by Patons. Both are made using Paton's Canadiana yarn. Both parents requested 'idiot strings' (whoever came up with THAT term I wonder?).
- Pam Kellogg has announced her new counted cross stitch 'Mystery stitch-a-long' with a Halloween theme. You can find more details both HERE and HERE. She also has a really pretty free cross stitch 'Dove of Hope' pattern available HERE.
- There are tons of free knitting pattern links to be found HERE.
- THIS is an absolutely beautiful shawl pattern! Great way to use up small amounts of yarn too.
- And HERE is another beautiful pattern!
And just for fun I thought I'd share a poor-quality picture of a huge dinosaur we came across in our travels. It's entirely made of found objects. Unfortunately the place was closed and we couldn't get closer for better pictures.
