What a day! I spent 6 hours chasing one of our falcons all over a desert butte. Basically a mini mountain in the middle of the desert with awesome rocks. We had to call off the search when it got dark. My hubbie is getting up at 430am to climb the butte and track him before daybreak. I am hoping he will be able to walk at all tomorrow. He climbed that mountain 5 times almost to the top looking for his bird. That is dedication.
Before we went out training I had Tom take a few photos of me and my knitted goods.
While watching Gladiator the other night I started the Star Crossed Slouchy Beret.
I LOVE this hat! I knit it slightly smaller then the pattern called for. I was supposed to use a 10 circular for the brim and an 11 for the rest, but I didn't have those. Instead I used a 9 and a 10.5. That's close enough. It came out great anyway. Too bad this one is a gift. I have another ball of this color left, so I think I am going to make one for myself. Part of my dream to have a 100% handmade beautiful wardrobe.
Here is another step closer to my handmade wardrobe. I designed a Foliage Cowl to match my Foliage hat.
I have never worn a cowl before, but they are cute and my neck gets cold a lot. My hair is usually up in a clip or a ponytail and the wind bites at the back of my neck.
Not sure what I am making next but I have to get a move on. Time is getting short and my crafty gift list is still pretty long.
If you want to keep track of my knitting you can check out my ravelry page. I really like ravelry! You should check it out if you haven't yet.
Back in a couple days with more craftiness.
