Finished Objects Friday-Tah Dah!!

 Isn't this yummy looking??!!

Jimmy Beans Wool was having a sale and I couldn't resist getting some of this gorgeous yarn.I wasn't sure about the colors or even what I am going to make with it but it was on sale!! (Is this how my stash got so big??)

 Now... on to more exciting news. I finished my cowl/scarf to go with my slouchy hat. I am so happy with how they turned out.  I do love this yarn from Lion Brand Tweed collection.

And now the BIG Tah Dah!

Chunky fingerless gloves...made from Lion Brand Hometown yarn.  I love, love, love these.   So soft and so warm and so easy peasy to make...

Aren't they cute? I  think these are going to be perfect for Christmas presents for the girls at the office.

Have a great weekend everyone and
Happy Crocheting!
