Morning Visitor

I think there may be a squirrel in my house. DH is getting ready to paint the house and is doing some work on the shingles. He had to take off the outside door in order to get to them. This morning I went out to get the mail and when I came back in left the inside door open, like I usually do on a nice day, forgetting that there was no outside door. In the mail was my Lionbrand Catalog, which I promptly sat down to browse. When I looked up - there was a little red squirrel sitting there looking at me! I scared him and I think he ran outside.....but I'm not sure....he may still be here. Maybe hiding under my bed?

I did find some projects in the Lionbrand catalog that I'd like to make. Like these felted slippers

And this round crocheted afghan. The patterns are free at , along with tons of other free patterns.
And since I have finished almost all of my UFOs (unfinished objects) I can start some new projects.

The Scalloped beaded necklace is from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders and takes a very little bit of one skein. This is one of those 'betcha can't make just one' kinds of projects.
The felted bag is a larger version of the little pink one I made and has two pockets inside. The flower is pinned on and was made by cutting the shapes out of some felted projects that went wrong!
The Shawl is an adaption of the pattern Gabriel's Wings and is made with leftover self-patterning sock yarn with rows of solid sock yarn in-between. This is a project I made for one of the books we read on the Whoduknit Group - The Angel Experiment, by James Patterson. I got thoroughly hooked on this series and have read up to the third one so far.
Okay squirrel - where are you???

Yes - I marked 3 items in the catalog too! The same slippers, the Extra Easy, Extra Fabulous Sweater, and the Short Row Scarf!

I think the slippers might look good with a contrasting color as well as contrasting yarn...

Great stuff. I really like all your finished projects and it is good to see that you aren't only subbing during your new retirement!
