  3. I used Bernat Mosaic Yarn in Spectrum to make these fun fingerless gloves with a 4.5mm hook.  Purple buttons for wrist straps make these gloves funky and bright.

I was reminded of this today, how a tiger mom lost her cubs and so some zookeepers dressed up these piglets as little tigers to console her. Just try having a bad day now. If you succeed, you must be a monster.

Cutest Call To Action Ever of the Day: On October 5, the container ship MV Rena ran aground on Astrolabe Reef, resulting in an oil spill that is already being regarded as the worst environmental disaster in New Zealand’s history.
Clean up efforts are underway, but the danger to local wildlife remains high. A raft of Little Blue Penguins has already been negatively impacted by the spill.
The Kiwi yarn store Skeinz has put out a call for penguin sweaters — an adorable-sounding but very necessary accessory that helps keep the birds from preening their feathers and ingesting the oil.
Skeinz has posted knitting instructions for anyone willing to lend a hand.

  7. This chunky winter cloche was made for Nav for her birthday.

    Using my Great Granny’s crochet book from 1976, I based the project on a yellow cloche hat inside.

    The pattern called for two strands of yarn, and using two different colours created this awesome marble look that looks fantastic.

    Having such a thick yarn base makes the project super quick to make, but also adds a lot of bulk so you have to be careful when shaping the final project.

    A quick steam relaxed the material and gave it a nice finished look.  I highly recommend steaming if you’re using bulky yarn or making a chunky project.

    Happy Birthday Nav!
