I'm a little behind on announcing a winner for my Saltwater Knits giveaway but the winner of the collection and yarn is 


Congratulations! please email me with your address and Ravelry name and I will get your winnings headed out to you. 

While I was wrapping up some sample knitting this last month, I've also been planning for Halloween. Now that I have a little dude to dress up I was feeling the itch to make something fun. After much brainstorming, and time lost to Pinterest, I settled on a great owl costume from the Martha Stewart website. No sewing was required which is right up my alley. A lot of brown felt was purchased, and even more in shades of brown.

I was starting to think how coat-effective is it really to make a costume but with the magic of coupons and sales I got all the felt for around $12. Plus some elastic and fabric glue, and the grand total was around $16. I will say, I ditched the fabric glue and opted for hot glue instead which worked like magic.

Whooo is that?


  1. Awwwww! He looks fantastic! I just finished Z's lion costume and she got to wear it yesterday. I just made a hoodie and stuck a tail on a pair of pants. Isn't it thrilling to be able to make awesome costumes?

  2. OMG! Just saw this post! Have been away for a while as the mom-in-law has been sick so life has been a bit crazy. I emailed my Rav name (Namma119), but forgot to send you my address, so will send another email with that. Thanks for the contest! Btw, Little Owl Man is ADORABLE!!!


I'd love to hear from you!
