Tuesday's Tallies..........Knitted Owl Wrist Warmers.



Hello there, I hope you had a good weekend, I'm back today but my One a Day is on hold until I've finished all my Christmas presents. My secret project is completely finished which was my largest gift to make.
This week I have made a pair of Owl Wrist Warmers from this month's Mollie Makes.


It was such a quick knit, though it didn't tell you how much yarn you need, so if anybody decides to give it ago, you need 100g of chunky, I used Rowan Cocoon in Mink, instead of using buttons for the eyes, I stitched them on using black yarn and a French knot.
If you hop on over to Carole's blog, you can check out what the other ladies have got on this week.


This week I will be starting another Austen Capelet but this time in a beautiful red merino wool, this is towards my little niece's Christmas present.


Before I go, I'd like to share a few photo's from my weekend, on Friday, Mick and I went to the German Market with some friends.
It was a beautiful winter's day, cold, crisp and the sun was shining, just perfect for wandering around the market, all wrapped up.
We went on the Big Wheel.




I went on the carousel for the first time in years, since my girls have grown up.



 We then wandered around the market, looking at all the beautiful stalls, enjoying  the wonderful smells from the food and drink stands. We stopped at a couple to buy a mug of Gluhwein, just to warm ourselves up, of course.







On Saturday a few of us went to my friend Diane's house, to celebrate her birthday. What a fabulous day, she had a beauty therapist at the house and she treated us all to a treatment. I had the most divine Indian Head massage. We chatted, laughed, had lunch, drank champagne then finished off with Afternoon tea, isn't the tea set, just gorgeous ?


When I got home, Paige had put our Christmas tree up, I know it's fairly early, but we just love Christmas so make the most of it for as long as we can.


Thanks for looking, it was a bit of a long post, so thank you for sticking with it. Have a good week, I'll be back soon.

The Owl warmers look handsome, if only I was able to use DPN's without shouting at the needles like a mad woman...

Hey and I had a look at your pictures before reading and thought: My, that market looks quite German... the organizers certainly did a good job. Hope you enjoyed your Glühwein. I tried it once or twice but never was particularly fond of it. That may be because I can't stand red wine... Should I give white glühwein a try then? ;-)

Those Owl Wrist Warmers look gorgeous and that wool looks super soft! I bet they will be a very loved present. I like the idea of the french knot instead of buttons, as they can catch on things. xx

A birdie told me that my mom's going to knit me those wrist warmers - as soon as she gets the right size pins! Haven't been to the market yet - you really had a good day for it!

I love the owl wrist warmers...how adorable! And I cannot wait to see that gift since I do know what you were making. :-)

I love going to the Christmas markets. It looks like you had a wonderful time. Did you fly over or take the ferry? Christmas flies by so I think you should put up your decorations early if you enjoy them.

Hugs from Holland ~
