I have fallen back in love with Malabrigo yarn again, not that we ever had a falling out, I just stopped buying it and using it for a while. Now I feel like I never want to knit or crochet with anything else. This yarn is so smooth and beautiful, it is perfect for this new cowl/scarf, which has become my current obsession.
This is the Earth Fairy Button Cowl by Jen at Fiber Flux. Jen designs about a million beautiful free crochet patterns a year. This one especially caught my eye and I knew I had to make it. And you know me, once I make one of something I have to make at least a hundred of them.
I have made four so far, with one more in the works. Three of the above were from stash yarn. I know you saw my yarn purchases from my trip to Ohio, I have a few more in mind to make. Suddenly I think everyone I know should have one!

I purchased the buttons at Joann's, and I used a size J hook. These are fast to make and used most of the 210 yards in the skein. A perfect one skein project. Don't you want to join in the fun?
Yesterday I finished the first part of the delightful Sue's Limpet Mitts. I am behind in the CAL as the whole pattern has now been provided by Sue on her wonderful blog and I have only made it this far. The directions are clear and easy, and if you have any questions there are pictures and videos to help. I am learning new stitches and new ways to do things, thank you Sue. I plan on getting at least the matching part of the mitt done sometime today. Maybe I can get completely done with both of them by the end of the weekend.
I want to wish all of you celebrating Thanksgiving a very special day tomorrow. My boys will all be together, well at least for the 38 hours Mr. 21 will be home. I love it when we are all together as a family, everyone sleeping in their own bed just where they are supposed to be.
I have much to be thankful for this year and every year. I want you to know that I am truly thankful for each and everyone of you. I appreciate you taking the time to come and visit me in this little part of my world. I appreciate your comments and the conversations we have. I appreciate that you have let me into your life and that you don't mind being a part of mine.
Have a wonderful day tomorrow.
And remember Christmas is less than a month away, now that is a scary thought!
