WIP Thursday?

After seeing Karen faithfully do her WIP Wednesday posts, I totally intended to start doing them too. But, the only thing I was working on last week was my secret project. Then, this week, I forgot to take pictures of my WIP, so that didn't work either. So, I said screw it. I'm back to working on Joe's Cobblestone sweater monogamously, and it. is. taking. forever. Last night I got 2 rows done. TWO! But, he's excited to wear it, so I hope to start chugging a little faster this weekend.

In other news, I won a contest on Marjorie's blogiversary! Check out the loot:

It's Lino-Fino in a great shade of purple. I'm thinking of using it for a cute little crochet tank top or maybe a tee if I have enough yarn. Thanks again, Marjorie! I love it!

Secret Knitting Revealed

Ok, that's a little incorrect; it's actually secret crocheting. I know the blog's been pretty quiet lately, but I couldn't show or tell what I was up to! What torture! Especially when you see what I have been working on:
Momma & baby owls
I'm not trying to brag, but those are the cutest damn things I have ever made. Here's the close-up of each:
Mama Owl
Baby Owl
FYI, they're from Pepika, and the patterns were so well written. I highly recommend.
Why the heck would I make a Mamma and Baby owl set? For (blogless) Audrey's baby shower, of course! She seemed to likey:
Happy Momma
My favorite gift she got was the little sheepy play mat:
Sheepy floor pillow
So cute! I think I might get one for Rocco!
