Found some dead animals and proof of a massacre around the farm.
Some photos taken last week while at my parents’ farm. There aren’t too many mushrooms around this year, but I did manage to find some.
Today I’ll be at Vai-me à Venda in Famalicão, joining the Tricotadeiras de Famalicão, to do some knitting and some spinning. If you’re in the neighbourhood, come on by and say Hi!
Another set of Monster Cousins. Filomena from Yarn Adventures kindly donated me two skeins of Yarn Adventures Aran in the colors Bright New Day (orange) and Bougainvilea (purple) for me to see if it would be enough to make a Mummy & Child Monster.
Turns out that two skeins of Aran is enough to make two Mummy & Child Monsters and still have a little bit left over.
These will soon be turning into a nice gift just in time for Christmas.
I bought these from Ancient Arts Fibre from the MEOW Collection. This collection helps out the MEOW Foundation is a Foundation founded in 2000 in Calgary, Alberta Canada focused on finding stray and abandoned cats new homes. I bought these two colors as they are similar to my sister’s cats, Nina a Tortoiseshell and Olivia a Russian Blue Tiger, just two of the five cats and rabbit that share the house with my sister and her husband.
If you want to see more pictures of these cute kitties and their other siblings you can do so here on their facebook page.
I don’t generally do much crocheting, but I decided that I wanted to make some cute little coasters to give away at Christmas and crocheting them was definitely a lot faster than knitting them in this case!
Meet Sunrise and Boogie, shortly to go to their new home.
I used Yarn Adventures Aran in these two gorgeous colors. I’ll post some photos soon of the finished monsters.
Here’s my finished Fuchsia Grey Cowl. Modeled by me and my doggies who wanted to join in on the fun.
I finally finished my Kex Blanket, just in time for the cold weather, not that it’s that cold here in PT yet, but it is getting there.
