Time for a Give Away!

I see my followers count has surpassed 500!  I can't believe it.  When I started my blog I was hoping to get to know others who loved crocheting and knitting as much as I do.  There is so much talent out there, and I love the blogs that I follow and all the inspiration they give me.  With that being said, I do believe it is time for my first give away!  You want to get your name in the bucket, simply comment.  I will draw a winner next Saturday and post it Sunday.  The give away will be something very roostery...that's all I say! 

Now for this weeks crochet insanity...tiny hooties crocheted from embroidery floss.

Yes, I've been experimenting again!   I can't decide exactly what to do with them.  They are the perfect size and weight for little pins, but I can also see them with dangling hearts.
Isn't he cute??!! 
This guy is tiny!  But extremely cute!

Have y'all seen the Luna Scarf??  I found it on ravelry and knew I had to try it.  I love it, it is instant scarfy gratification.
The pattern uses a very fine yarn, which I am sure to try, but I just grabbed from my stash.  I started one in a variegated yarn, but didn't like it.  Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but I think these are so much prettier done in a solid color.  You can find the pattern here

Now....check it out in red!

I am off to do that Sunday afternoon thing!  Y'all have a good week!

Congratulations on 500 followers. I was happy when I found your blog months back and enjoy reading all your new posts when they come up. I really think you are an artist and have been very inspirational. I absolutely lover these little owls. Owls are so popular that I think they could be used in so many ways. I really think these would be great on crochet beanies for girls and women. I love the scarf and will hop over there to that link and see if I want to try it!
Thanks and God bless you,
Susie

Just found your BLOG and delighted with the Hooties. Great Idea to "perch" them on the scarf and use them as pins.

By the way check out my Recycled Hook Holders on my BLOG. /;)
