Over the past few days I've realized that I need some ear warmers to protect my beloved ears from the cold. So I found this really cute owl hat pattern on ralvery. I modified it a bit to turn it into an ear warmer. I think it looks great, but I think its a touch loose. I might try a smaller needle size.... Anyways, here's a picture, hope you enjoy!

Ps- if you're interested in making one its called Who on ralvery. Sorry you must be a member, but its free :)

Dress for Hazel

Hazel has grown into the next size up, which is good and awesome for her. But the problem comes at the fact that she has no Sunday dresses in that size. So I was fortunate enouh to get my hands on some patterns for dresses. And yesterday I finished the first one! :) I can't wait for her to wear it on Sunday; she looks absolutely adorable in it.

Winter Wonderland

Some people might think that I'm slightly crazy for saying this, but I truly think that the weather we are having is kind of amazing. :) I love this snowy, very cold weather. It just makes you want to curl up with a good book and snuggle in front of a fireplace. Too bad I don't have a day we will, *sigh*. It's especially good right now though because I haven't been feeling well, so it gives me a great excuse to curl up and knit or play games with my hubby. And I love to get all those extra snuggles from Hazel! So I hope that everyone is staying warm and cozy in this rather cold winter front! :)
This is the view from our bedroom window. You can't tell but the chimney has the picturesque smoke coming out. ;)
