Lights, Camera, TURKEY!




Happy Thanksgiving!!

As you know, in this states this coming week is a time where friends and family get together, overload on some form of bird and sack out on the couch watching football. (There's also always a dog show on that morning for you dog lovers :P)

As someone who does enjoy a bit of turkey on top of mashed potatoes covered in a smidge of gravy with a side of cranberry sauce I thought, what would be more fitting than a tribute to the Turkey. You go bird!

The above picture was so kindly donated by our friend, Deb Richey. Deb is a pattern maker extraordinaire. And if the above picture doesn't prove that to you, just check out her Etsy site or website.

And for your viewing pleasure, a trio of hand picked turkeys:



Also very kind to donate a few festive pictures was Brooke Krueger. Brooke is a wife and mother and loves to crochet new and fun hats for her toddler. (I have that same inspiration Brooke!)






I just adore this one. It's got whimsy and looks a lot like a football helmet. I'd love to see a turkeys vs. stuffing game one Sunday! The edging around the brim of the hat is a nice touch and makes the hat look nicely finished.

And lastly just to get you excited for next month.....a Moose!


Also created by Brooke, this hat is cute and creative. (Are those antler stuffed?!) The neck ties are a nice touch and how cute is the nose made with buttons, crazy cute! more of Brooke's items can be seen on her etsy site.

I hope all of you have a very wonderful Thanksgiving - and for my international viewers, have a lovely November 24.

Thanksgiving is just as important as Christmas


Happy Winter!

I was going to lead off with a picture of my Santa hat, but then it occured to me that I might be akin to the grocery store, completly skipping thanksgiving in favor of the big guy in red. Well, that would be wrong of me. So the next few weeks will be dedicated to THANKSGIVING! 

I understand that some of you do not celebrate thanksgiving so to you I apologize. But, any event where family gathers to eat together and be together is something we can all support. 

I think the above hat is ADORABLE! but it's not super Thanksgiving-y is it? Well what about this one?




I love the colors in this one. It looks like the sky if you were looking at it through a tree. And the ear flaps will keep your ears warm. Obviously the ears on top are decorative, but if you were in the woods you might be able to fool some dazed and confused animal that you are actually a rare form of jackolope. ...... it could happen!

BUT if neither of the above colors works for you I do have a third alternative:

Hunters will like this as it's camouflaging and functional. Ok, maybe not really manly hunters, but it is the holidays, we need to embrace our inner silly person don't we? 

Just in case your curious, I got all three of these at Michael's, which annoys me because they don't do online sales, but they do have nice yarn. Maybe we can started a letter writing campaign to get them to modernize. No? That seems like a lot of work? Ok, ok, well if you have one close buy, go on their website and print out their 40% coupon and get yourself a skein. It really is soft yarn and very pretty. 
I'm thinking reindeer, turkeys and football related themes this month. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with, but also, can't wait to show you what I come up with!


Happy Crocheting and don't forget to enjoy the falling leaves (before you're forced to rake them all up).
