There will be warmth

We Chicks finished lots of hats and earwarmers this week. First up is Maureen's hat with the beautiful textured stitch. She used a 100% wool so this will definitely be warm on a cold winter day.
 Next up is Dorah's earwarmer headband for which she used a Malabrigo Silky Merino yarn. The soft touch of this yarn will surely be a favorite winter garment for a cold set of ears.
 Beth showed us the two hats she made for a nephew and a niece. Their family are avid fans of the Redskins football team and even though it doesn't look it in this photo, the colors are the team colors.
She added a feminine touch for the niece's hat. 
 I used my favorite hat formula to make an original design. Someday I might find the time to write this pattern down and put it up on Ravelry. This hat uses Tahki Yarn called Coast, a wool and cotton blend.
 The matching mittens should have their thumbs by the end of today.
 Carole is almost finished with her cabled cowl. Just look at those beautiful cables!
 Maureen's new project is a two tone cowl using Cascade 220 in peach and a deep burnt orange.
 And Dorah's next project is this lovely beret hat. Can't wait to see how these turn out.
Two more photos of my grands. On their way home from our visit to the NY Sheep and Wool Festival on Sunday (no I didn't take any photos of the festival) we stopped for lunch at the Texas Roadhouse. Leo checked out the drink menu. I think he ordered a marguerita! HAHAHA!!!
 And Moose wouldn't leave until he had the chance to try out the saddle.
