Awards from the fair

When I went to the fair on Friday, Bella Boop's dress had won a blue ribbon! Then when I went to pick up my items today, there was another ribbon. Special Award!

My hand towel won 3rd. It was the only knitted item in the category.

And Bella Boop's shrug won 3rd also.

It was a great fair this year.

My mind is moving closer and closer to cold weather knitting as the weather seems to want to get straight to winter this year and skip fall all together.
This week's patterns are geared more toward the chilling of the air.
Knitting: Torbay

Have a great weekend everyone, and by all means...stay warm!

You have probably already seen this cute little sweater and hat. To me it is new, and OMG it is adorable! I am going to make this for Trin for Christmas. Not to sure about the hat, Trin has allot of hair, I don't think her and hats are going to get along. But the sweater is a definite!

Pictures of FO

We didn't get all fancied up, it's too close to nap time to make her do too much. But here is Bella modeling her new dress and shrug. She likes the dress, but she has never, and will never like jackets or sweaters, so it was all I had to get her to get a good picture wearing the shrug.

These two patterns were both very easy to follow and execute, if you need a quick gift for a special girl, you should try these.

Violet Dress Finished!

I don't have a picture of her wearing yet, I have to convince her to put it on sometime this weekend.
This was the easiest knit, if you need to make something for a special little girl, you can complete this one in just two or three days, and how cute!
Once again the pattern can be found here:
