Snood Finger less Gloves and Turkeys

the turtle

on me

I tried to get it from the side

too funny check out my eyes I am trying to see it in the mirror to snap the shot

got hubby to snap it from the back
I decided to keep this snood for me and make another for my niece. I added a ribbon and a turtle pin I never wore from my jewelry box. I think it really enhances it. 

I made several finger less gloves and cannot decide which embellishment to use??? The one button the rust colored one is a vintage button, the other is a kitty face, then I have the butterfly one, hmmm decisions. which one do you think looks best???

I like it on

they are warm too

the middle button is vintage

vintage button

another vintage button

too cute kitty

looks pretty on

with the bow

I made this turkey last  year.

I am making Christmas gifts daily, with not a lot of $$$$ this year most of my family & friends will get homemade items..I am picking out things to make just right for each person. The white and black yarn will be my next pair of gloves. This time in wool and fun fur yarn.

Snoods, Scarves, and Headbands...

headband scarf
 I made 2 headband scarves and a snood with Bamboo and glitter thread in black, it really complimented the blue. The light blue glitter thread was used for the larger headband scarf, the pink scarf I used beaded glitter pink yarn and Patons Brillant and Vannas Glamour, the glitter black,which has sequins attached on it,  is called "String me Along" thread, very fine but comes in large its around $14.50 a roll but it lasts long since there is over 400 yds on it and works great with other yarn. The Patons Silk Bamboo is excellent to work with and the colors out now are really bright. I didn't use a pattern for the headband scarves, just started at the point and increased each row using a mesh pattern. The snood is the "Perky Snood" pattern.
