a glimpse of cooler weather

So on an awesome Savers trip a couple weeks ago, I scored three skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease thick and quick for $2.99. And it's been sitting on my chair watching me since.

Yesterday we had some insane, road-closing downpours so my mind turned to cooler weather and the yarn caught my eye. So I whipped up two of these simple babies.




I have grand plans to make some fab flowers out of other yarns I've thrifted. I've gotten some small balls of mohair and fine wool that would be perfect for this. I just need to find a pattern I like. I tried this one. Whose picture I loved but the pattern came out nothing like that. (I now see what went wrong.) The search continues.

And a modeled shot.

Yes, folks. That's me.
