bobbled Christmas tree pattern. Some of the ladies finished their trees, and one lady even made a pillow out of her 2 trees. I'm currently making another one that I designed. It will be a pillow for the store that I work at.
free pattern for it. I used puff paint for the faces.
granny square. I used the same Plymouth yarn Dreambaby DK yarn as I used for the candy corn amigurumi. I started making another one using the white yarn last week. I think I'll make a blanket out of a single large granny square.

Last month was a busy month for me. I started a 2nd job, teaching crochet at my local yarn shop. My kids went back to school. Also a lot of other things started back up again. I'm slowling falling into my new routine / getting use to the new routine. I love teaching classes, and the group of ladies that I'm teaching are very nice. I've gotten some nice comments from them. The young lady that I was teaching weaving to finished her first woven scarf last month. On Saturday we started knitting a scarf together. I am also experimenting with dyeing wool with natural things for my job at the textile museum. I even helped with a school group that was taking their fleece to fabric lesson. I've updated my website so that all of my upcoming classes are on there. Basically things are good and very busy here.
I made these 3 soda tab bracelets for my mom for breast cancer awareness month. She is going to share them with some friends. I also made a 4th and gave it to someone before I had a chance to photograph it. Here is the free raverly pattern for them.free pattern. Its an easy pattern, so I was able to knit this while watching the movie in the dark.
free pattern for it.
Cascade Yarns Pinwheel for this bag.
this free pattern to knit this hat for my Monster High dolls. I love the way that it looks on her. I used a long tail cast on for it, even though the pattern didn't say to.
I used this free pattern to make the witch hat, and then I attached it to her head with a small, clear rubber band.
For the caplet I used size 6 dpns and some mohair yarn.
