Apparently too many people are speeding through our subdivision and we have lost a couple of fawns and a mama deer. So these signs appeared this week. I want to find out who did this and THANK THEM!

I love sunflowers so I had to incorporate that into the sweater for her. I think I did a total of three other sunflowers before I made on I like. Anyway, here is the sweater for my make-believe granddaughter.
There are lots of sunflowers on Ravelry, but the one I used does not appear to be in print anymore. I modified it anyway and made the petals longer. The buttons I got from a YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHkGNAQ_Hr0.

This one was about as easy and fast a hat as you can make. It is made on two needles instead of circular if that matters to you. It is just garter stitch with increases and decreases. And if you want to take a break from casting on and binding off, you start with three stitches and end with three stitches. Give it a try.
By the way, it is a free pattern. Be sure to thank the Woolly Wormhead.

This pattern is a lacy cowl / hood that I made in teal (although it looks blue) and light green. It's also a fun lace pattern so go for it! I used Lion Brand Amazing Lace and am working on one in Loops and Threads Woolike. Both are perfect for this pattern.
This is a free pattern on Ravelry at this link. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jennylous-lace-cowl

This is a cute hat for a child with maroon owls around the brim. The brim is double thickness so it will be especially warm if the cold weather ever comes back.
It is wise to be prepared.

I know it is ironic, but in this heat, I am making hats for winter. I don't even know what I am going to do with them. Some I will put on Etsy to sell, some I will give away to friends and family, and some I will donate to our local shelter. The truth is that I gotta knit!

No, I didn't dye my own kitties. They are still black and tortoiseshell.
However I made a baby hat in lavender with purple kitties on the brim. Once again, I had to work the design from the top down instead of the bottom up.
Also the first picture is the true color, not the second one. I should retake the picture with the flash, but I have a cat on my lap right now, so I can't move for an hour or two.
