I went over to a friend’s house and we made a flock of these adorable owls. This ones name is Gimpy because one of her wings doesn’t work. My sister taught me how to knit last Monday and I made these awesome arm warmers! How cool!!! I'm not gonna lie it took me a while and I had to unravel a few things but all in all I think they turned out great. After being insanely proud of myself for this accomplishment I hopped online and started looking at all the how-to video’s to learn other knitting patterns, I was overwhelmed. I had to take a deep breath and tell myself baby steps, just take baby steps.
Oh, and I made that awesome headband that looks like wood grain. “Why?” You ask. “Why not?” I shrug. It’s cute, that’s why.
These babies are my Arc de Triumph. I’ve wanted leg warmers since I found this picture but couldn’t find any that I loved. I found this place. Some of you may already be aware of it and it’s a dangerous place. Like craft store dangerous, only it’s not a craft store… it’s Goodwill. We just got one in our tiny little town and I now have a new addiction. I went there looking for a sweater to cut the sleeves off and make leg warmers with (and found one) and left with a cart full of stuff! A cart full! And it was only $20. Everything I looked at I wanted to alter in some way. After the cart was overflowing I told myself that I had to leave NOW. Phew… But seriously, aren’t these leg warmers adorable?
