This is the love of my life, my dream baby. He is the Bright Red Bug. Now I'd show you my real dream baby but it's better that you see the one I created on VW's website. I really do have a red New Beetle; those who know me know my Red.
Now what does this have to do with fiber? Well I found this and thought that if I'm ever laid up for one reason or another I have something to knit.
Mary loves her Hallowig but she's camera shy so you'll just have to look at Miss Margaret.

The Hallowig is done! I tweaked the top decreases so that it would lie flat by doing one row of K2, K2tog, then followed with a row of K2tog all around. I then did the 3 needle bind off and it shaped it very nicely.
For those who don't know this lady, this is my mannequin Miss Margaret. She came to me as a trade for showing someone how to make plaster of paris moldings of faces and body parts (she was trying to restore and preserve a collection of mannequins). Miss Margaret models many of my knitting projects so you'll see her fairly often. The scarf is one I made of Elsebeth Lavold's Cable Cotton.
