Black Friday On the Needles

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  My husband and I have so much to be thankful for and we try to discuss that often, not just on Thanksgiving!

Have you seen these cute little solar toys?  I just love them.  I found this turkey while I was in Florida visiting my brother.  His little wings flap and his head bobs-so fun.  They are from a dollar store.  My brother has quite a collection but I have a hard time finding them here in Phoenix.

I have been knitting quite a bit and my fingers are letting me know it is time to take a break.  I am about 1/2 way finished with this cowl/scarf for my niece.  It is a free pattern from Ravelry, Irish Mesh Cowl.  I bought this yarn on line from a destash sale.  It is Herschners sock yarn, Tweed Twilight.  It is soft and thin, I think it will make a great cowl/scarf but I don't think it would be suitable for socks.  I have plenty so I think I will try some fingerless gloves or a hat too.

Check out the other needlers at Patchwork Times.


  1. Love the pattern and color. It is hard when the heart is willing but fingers are screaming for a break.

  2. Pretty pattern, one I need to check out! Thanks. Love the color, too.

  3. I am happy to hear that I am not the only one whose fingers complain about too much knitting! Thank you. I find that I have an easier time knitting socks or something light weight. Right now I have socks on the go and then do a few rows every day on a sweater, but the straight needles and weigh to the yarn do cause me pain (ouch!), if I over-do. I think that your pattern is very pretty! Cheers! Evelyn

  4. Lovely color and pattern. Will have to check out the pattern too. Thanks for sharing.
