Bella is Tinkerbell for Halloween, of course, we called her Tinkerbella all day! We have a wonderful zoo here in Toledo, and they do an annual thing for the kiddies called Little Boo at the Zoo. She had to have a hat to wear in the 50 degree-100 mile an hour breeze, so I knitted her up a little punkin hat. She is also wearing three layers of clothing!
Yeah, this is fun!!!
I used Plymouth Dreambaby doubled and it is so soft. It almost feels like velvet or velour when you double it. I can't believe how soft it is. Just right for a little punkin head!
Specs: Billi-Jean's Pumpkin Hat (free pattern) Plymouth Dreambaby in Orange and Green Size 6 dpns I added a purl stitch every 10 stitches to make the pumpkin ridges and I didn't increase to 85 stitches. I love the i-cord top!!! So cute!
All bundled up from the cold.
I also made another Montego Bay Scarf. I had so much trouble with the first one, I was determined to start another so I could get in more practice. I am happy to say that I finally got the concept of the pattern and could do it with my eyes shut. It only took me a scarf and a half, but I finally got it!! (I'm a little dense sometimes!)

Hi to all in Blogland. Wow, I can't believe its been over a month since I last posted! Things have been in an uproar here at the Morris household and there has been a serious lack of knitting and finished projects. But, I am happy to say that things are getting back to normal and there are a few things to show you. First up is the Little Grab and Go Purse.
This is the cutest little purse and very quick and easy, and best of all, it's a free pattern. I made this one for my daughter Rachael's birthday and I made another one for Kelly. This is my first felted project, and I really enjoyed it. I used Plymouth Galway for this one, and Cascade 220 for Kelly's. I think the Galway felted much better than the Cascade, its much smoother and tighter.
Looky how smooth!! Specs: Little Grab Purse from All tied up in stitches Galway Highland Heather in color 732 Size 11 circs Pewter button from Four Feathers Pewter
Exactly as pattern except I had to go down to a size 5 needles after completely knitting them and running out of yarn. And finally here is the other little bag and the reason things have been a little non-productive.
This is a clear bag I am required to have at my new job. I went to work full time at Dillards Department store. I have never worked full time, that is, full time out of the home. Being a mother and homemaker is more than a full time job! I had be doing some babysitting and lost all the kids, so I decided to get a job instead of more kids. (I didn't actually LOSE the kids, you know what I mean!) We also went on a wonderful Florida vacation for a week. Fourteen of us went! We had a great time except for the sting-ray my son stepped on. Yep, it stung him. More on that later. Here is how tan Bella got. Tanner than me, and she was never without 50 spf!!
