"Makes Me Smile" Monday

So, things have been revolving around "Twilight" at our house lately !!

Jack's been working his way through the books these last
few weeks, and is now on "Breaking Dawn" . . .
and I've been knitting up this version of Bella's awesome mittens :

(Still have to finish that thumb !!)

Love, love, love them !!! Perfect ode to a favorite series . . . perfect use of leftover yarn . . . perfect intro to knitting cables . . . and perfect for the upcoming cold weather !!!! Maybe perfect for a Christmas gift or two ?!?!?!!!!!

Happy (Bella's mittens) Monday !!!!

"Makes Me Smile" Monday

Just a few pictures today from my jaunt
to our area's Fiber Fest on Saturday !
I'd been hearing about it for several years from one of my
co-workers/fellow knitter, and decided to finally check it out:

So many beautiful fibers and colors everywhere . . .
I wanted to take pictures of everything,
but the crowds made it a bit challenging !

These two alpacas were pretty much
posing for me during their snack time !

Glad I checked it out !

Happy (fiber-filled) Monday !

"Makes Me Smile" Monday

"Thoughts, rest your wings.
Here is a hollow of silence,
a nest of stillness, in
which to hatch your dreams."
