Another Finish

I finished my Hogwarts Express shawl over the weekend and although my owls don't have beads for eyes I am very pleased with it. I have several hundred beads in my stash but none of them have a hole big enough to pull two strands of yarn through, so I just put a purl stitch for the eyes, maybe one day I stitch on some beads, or maybe not.

Feline Friday

A rainy morning in the porch.

The skull shawl is finished and it is huge. And I think it is rather creepy.

Fall Trees

The trees in front of our house are turning nicely. The one on the far left is always the first to change color and shed its leaves.

I am making good progress on all three (well, actually four, but I can only show three) current yarn projects.

The skull shawl is growing nicely.

Del's sweater is getting there.

And my Hogwarts Express is now in the beginning rows of the owl pattern. Unfortunately I found out that none of the several hundred beads in my stash have a hole big enough to pull yarn through. So, my owls will either remain eye-less or I have to stitch the beads on afterwards. Bummer.
