Happenings Aug. 12: Paddington Bear, Rose Granny square

A finished item from earlier this year. It was a secret until it release. A cute toy from a book you may remember reading as a child. A crochet pillow you will want to make now for this winter.

FINISHED ITEMS
You may remember me talking about items that I can't talk about until they are released. This was one that I'm glad to be able to show you now. This is a Man's vest in Homestead from Plymouth Yarn. This yarn has that great wool feel, firm and sturdy, but not scratchy. Here is my photo:
Okay I never said I was a photographer. Fortunately Plymouth yarn uses one:

WORKS IN PROGRESS
 Coming to Happenings soon.

CROCHET
This is the River Rose Pillow Cover. I love square. Wouldn't it be great to have those flowers warming up your room this winter. (Yes, it is coming). It is also a great block for anything else you would use granny squares. What would your granny squares become?

KNIT
Remember Paddington Bear? He was always getting into trouble. Make your own Paddington Bear and be ready for adventures.
The tag is so authentic! Pattern is here on Ravelry.

LISTEN
If you like listening to people talk about knitting, you might want to listen to the Knit More Girls podcast. After reading the reviews on itunes, I wasn't sure I wanted to listen. Finally I subscribed. They each talk about knitting and various yarn related activities, and have frequent contests and giveaways. Why don't I still subscribe? Mainly because I want my listening to be informative. Then long commercial like information from the sponsors didn't make me want to stay either. The reviews were to harsh, remember they are from several years ago, but this one isn't for me.

WINNER
The winner of last weeks Swarovski Coral Focal Bead is McKayla K. Congratulations!
