Knit and Crochet Love - Past, Present, Future

I love these little owls to pieces! Don't you? They are one of a few holiday gifts I completed late 2012!
The pattern for the owls - one of many beautiful crochet patterns available in the ATERGcrodhet Shop! These colorful owls and the colorful Christmas balls were my inspiration to learn how to crochet in the first place.
FYI - if you love the owls and are not into crochet, Greta sells them already crocheted in the shop - check on page three!
The two owls were a gift to my Mother who collects owls and keeps the little collection I have made her in her meditation space. :-)
Her husband and my step-father is Jewish. I think my parents are so cool because they have made room in their lives and hearts for celebrations and observances unique to each other's faith.
My youngest brother once gifted them a Menorah that when viewed from one side is a Menorah and when viewed from the other is a Christmas tree. This small table topper woven in white and shades of blue in Saori style was my gift to my step-father this year - a table top weaving for his Menorah.
Hint: if you love the yarn as much as I do and can't find it available in the shop - write Lindsey at Yarnia. She will wind some up for you!
And just so you know - I have a couple very cool projects "on the needles" right now!
I am sooooo in love with Lucy Ravenscar's little Tooterphant! It is going to be especially difficult to say goodbye when I give him away to the sweet little boy I am making him for. I am about half-way done and expect to be able to wrap him up in a couple weeks.
You can find the pattern here and even if you aren't into crochet - go see how absolutely adorable these are when completed. Stole my heart I tell you!
The yarn is King Cole Splash Apricot - unfortunately discontinued BUT my sweetie found it in an obscure corner of the web!!!
Getting pretty gutsy with my newbie crochet skills - huh? So far so good though.
Little tiny owls on the knitting needles! These will be knitted and then felted and finally embellished. I just HAD to have the Holiday Bird Ornament pattern the minute it popped up in the Woolly Something Shop!
I really love working with Marie's patterns. FYI - she has had so many requests for PDF versions that she is making almost all her patterns available for download PDFs! Thank goodness for me however, the patterns are still available in booklet form as well.
Once these two projects are completed - I am determined to make this a very yarny next couple months!
In addition to making several new hearts for my Valentine tree...

these beautiful crocheted eggs from the ATERGcrochet shop. I promise to keep you posted!
If you haven't visited either shop in awhile, you had better pop over and visit. Both designers have come up with some delicious and tempting new patterns in the past few months. For instance these adorable NEW Matryoshka from Woolly Something and these "make me smile" kitties from ATERGcrochet!
Anybody figured out cloning yet?
