New Patterns

Well I made a trip into town last week to pick up some yarn that I had ordered from a local yarn store called Caryll's Yarns. Hubby better hope I never win the lottery because I would go crazy getting items here. The customer service is outstanding, the yarns available are outstanding and if she does not have enough on hand for your project she will order it for you. She also has a number of different handmade items on display some for sale, some not. One of the not for sale items on display was an owl hat with matching bag that had been done in Patons Canadian yarn. The person who had knitted it had left instructions with Caryll on how she had made it and I was able to figure it all out and made a set for my grand daughter Madison as her birthday is on April 15th. I hope she likes it as much as I enjoyed knitting it. I am now working on creating a matching scarf pattern. I have also posted the pattern for both items in my patterns.

Even though it is windy and below seasonal temperatures the sun has finally made an appearance today and hopefully we will not get anymore snow. The 50cm we got last week is enough, we have even delayed starting all our seeds for the garden because it sure looks like we will not be able to plant until late this year. I just hope we don't end up with a short growing season.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Thanks Anita and Shellebelle. I enjoyed knitting them and am working on a matching scarf pattern now. Hopefully it will work out and I will post a picture and pattern when I get it done.

I saw your pattern on Ravelry. You are a genius. I tried to download the patterns via word and pdf and it would not do so. I was wondering if I could trouble you to send it directly to my email address jenn.ty@gmail.com. Pretty please???

thank you in advance......

Could you please email me the pattern for the hat? I couldn't get either of the links to work. I am a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma and knitting an owl hat would be a great gift for my future little! My email is postell22@gmail.com
