Needlework Update - February, 2016

Good morning,

It has been a busy month since the January Needlework Update!

The basket weave design hand knit sweater above in gorgeous sunshine yellow is a special order that has been delivered to a lady with a matching sunny personality.
This is a similar basket weave design sweater in a tunic style, also a special order that has been delivered.
I have only one new afghan this month, but what gorgeous colors!  This Citrus Afghan in orange, lemon, and lime will brighten any room and any mood. 
Zero Calorie Cupcakes for yourself or your Valentine!  Caution:  only give to your Valentine if she/he requested non-fattening Valentine gifts!  ;)    
This turtle hatched and is in the shop as of this writing to replace another who found his forever home last month.  He's a perfect dorm room pet or computer pal.
These fingerless gloves have been delivered.  They were a special order for a person with hands a little larger than mine. 
This super thick and warm fashion statement cowl scarf is also great to pull up over your head to keep you warm in really cold weather. 
Head gear is in this month with quite a few head band ear warmers.
Some of these have been delivered and some are still available in the shop.
Ear flap hats are new in the shop this month.
These are knit in the traditional Scandinavian Intarsia tradition.
This braided cable hat is knit in pure white, double thick, extremely soft yarn. 
This one is knit in thick and chunky yarn.  It's also very soft and warm.
 And, to restock, here are a few more cloche hats that are also used as chemo caps.
 This one has a velvet emerald green border.  Lovely for St. Patrick's Day or any day.
 And, for the last two, a little lavender sparkle...
...textured band adds a little more style.

So, that's it for this month! 

I so enjoy seeing what you are making, too.  I have so many blog friends who make such beautiful things, take fabulous images, bake such delicious looking foods.  I so enjoy seeing what you are doing and hope you enjoy seeing what we are doing.

All the very best for a wonderful February!

Lois
