Around Halloween I bought these 2 "skeleflamingos". They are the flamingo lawn ornaments, but, skeleton versions...lol...Well, I decided they are so awesome I'm keeping them up year round, however, I needed to do something to holiday them up...:teehee:
For Thanksgiving, I crocheted a couple of the turkey gobbler things (caruncles?), to make them more festive, and tied them around the necks of the flamingos...lol...Here is one of my flamingos!

I found them at our local grocery store, Schnucks. That's the only place I saw them, which kind of surprised me, I would have thought target or Wal-Mart would have had them as well!

I crochet and I am wanting to learn to knit. I make those amigurumi animals where you can get the patterns off of www.lionbrand.com . They are super cute little creatures plus I am working on a granny square afghan. They are just the coolest and you can use all your scrap yarn. Not to offend anyone but I went to the Yarntiques store in JC and they lady there just didn't seem to have time for me. She was in there with her knitting buddies while I was hunting for some bamboo yarn and I had to wait forever until she finished her knits and perls. The best thing about that shop was the talking parrot upstairs! Unfortunately the best place I found for yarn and a fabulous teacher went out of business. Well, she closed her shop to go on a book tour. Her shop was actually called Knit and Perl in Midway near Gray. Her work is beautiful and I wish I could find out where she is otherwise I will have to beg my grandmother to teach me how to knit again. I know there is a yarn mfg. site that does have knitting and crochet instructions. Not sure if you can learn from a book (I'm not good at it) but they are online for free if you want to give it a try. If you start a knitting or crocheting group I would be interested in joining. Sounds like fun.
