Lambie Pie

While losing myself on the internet this Saturday afternoon, browsing blogs and shops at my leisure. I came across this lil' lambie pie. Isn't he cute? I was quite taken by him. I pinned him, favorited him, and did whatever else was necessary, so I could go back and find him and look at him again and again. So this Sunday morn when I awoke, I decided to free-hand a lambie pie of my own:

In other news, I've been working on a simple ripple scarf...the yarn is yummy. I picked this up in the mountains of North Carolina when I was there for a family reunion this summer. I think it was at a yarn store in a town called Blowing Rock.

When the bloggee is away......

.....the hooks, needles, and fiber are still at play!
Here is a seed stitch cowl that has been on my needles for the past month. It was slow going because I chose a size 8 needle but that matched the yarn perfectly. I got this yarn at my LY,S that sadly closed its doors for good over the the holiday break. I picked up about 12 skeins of beautiful yarn each at more than 50% off it's list price. This is a beautiful silk, cotton, baby alpaca blend. Sooo soft and comfy. I am going to love wearing this to work and out and about.  
 This was a custom order that I did for a gal at work who requested it. I used a free earflap hat pattern then winged the face by looking a pics on Ravelry. For my first "face" hat I thought he came out cute. It looked even better on the baby!!!!
