Lions and Tigers and Bears..

IMG_5413I can’t believe October is here. I love fall and I am very excited to see what this month is going to bring. Birthday parties, Halloween, Rhinebeck and Plucktober “Oh My!”

I have hit some roadblocks  and I was pretty sure I am not going to finish any sweaters this month so I decided to cast on the Ba-able Hat by Donna Smith and use some of my stash. This pattern has been in my Ravelry queue since the beginning of the  year. I noticed a picture of it on my Instagram feed during the Edinburugh Festival. It was an easy answer to knit this for Plucktober and turn it in to a KAL with a group of girl friends ( I will be knitting one more for my daughter later this month, when my friends get their yarn. (Oh, and by the way the pattern is FREE).


It feels really good to use stash. I played a bit of yarn chicken but was able to squeek it out.

So next up is working on my Bartlett. I love my Funky G, but I need to tear back a bit and really can’t be bothered ( the situation is kinda ugly right now) but I will get to fixing it.
