Aren't these cute? I finished them up yesterday, such a fun and quick knit!

Yarn: Cascade Pima Tencel (50% cotton/50% tencel)

Needles: US size 5 dpns

Adjustments: I used felt for the stems instead of i-cord and I used some floral wire for the curly parts.

The yarn for this project, the Cascade Pima Tencel, was one of the very first yarns I ever bought down here (twin cities). I bought it because it was sooooo soft and such a perfect fall/Halloween color. I so want a sweater out of this yarn, ok, not in orange but you know what I mean. It was absolutely lovely to knit with, so comfy for my fingers!

Here's some stuff my mom sent down from her garden:

Mmmmm, tomatillos and jalapenos! I'll probably be able to make a batch of chili verde, some salsa verde and probably have enough left over to make stuffed jalapenos. I love love love spicy food! We have some peppers growing outside the apartment window but they're taking forever to mature, we have some serranos and some cayenne peppers.

Those are so cute! I've seen that pattern before but have not made any yet. You've given me a good idea, though...

There are several very nice tops using that yarn in Fitted Knits.

Oooh, I didn't know that, I've looked through that book and really want to buy it but I didn't pay attention to the yarns called for. Thanks!
