Saturday Smiles

 Linda at Three Bags FUll knits Alan Dart creatures.
Here is her Day of the Dead senor. 
My pal Linda L also is knitting some darling creatures of late.
Their attention to detail really impresses me.
They make me smile.
Have you see Coco Knits new Watch?
It is just a metallic thing on a band that holds your accutraments.

I found a great dry shampoo to use this winter
: Bed Heads' Dirty Secret Rockaholic Dry shampoo
My hair gets dirty at the roots but it dries out if I wash it daily in winter.  

Linda at the knit shop gave me a great tip for a tutorial.
I have a hard time when you knit a hat from the top down and the beginning is so fiddly.
She said to check out Emily Ochews Knitted Caston for circular garments.  It is great.

I found a new pattern and Im in love.
I'm knitting darling slippers.
I can work on these only when I'm at home and quiet.
So far so good.
Ill show you soon.
I have a feeling I'll be knitting them as Christmas gifts to a very 
few .....

(I cant talk Cubs this morning) 

Whats making you smile?

That wrist band is genius.
My maple tree in all its fall glory makes me smile!

Not much today, we got rained out of a fun adventure with Little Buddy, will try again tomorrow. No Fall foliage to see here, but there is knitting.

Getting outside Fall/Winter preparations checked off my list makes me smile. I only have the falling leaves to contend with now. Once everything is ready, I can relax and let the weather do what it will, and I can sit inside and knit and sew.

Having nothing scheduled today is making me smile. I'll be visiting my fave blogs, watching hubby watching Pearl Harbor.. ugh.. and crocheting on my never-ending blanket. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

That cast on is genius. I used it for my pi shawl and it worked great.
Does that senor have a senorita in the works? He's too cute to be single.

We've had unseasonably warm temps -- even broke a record yesterday with 80 degrees. So, warm fall days are making me smile! Today I watch the Broncos...hoping they beat the Raiders; that will make my day!
