Fall Might Finally Be Here

Today was grey, rainy, and a bearable temperature. In other words, it felt like Fall. I might even need long sleeves and layers soon. In preparation for the lower temperatures, I've been knitting hats, socks, scarves, and fingerless mitts throughout the summer.  Now that Fall seems to be hanging around, I want to knit cute, colorful things that have nothing to do with keeping warm. So, it's a very good thing that I have plenty of supplies for making more of these:

Pattern: Mini Alien by Barbara Prime (@Rav) (@FuzzyMitten.com)

Needles: US 4 (3.5 mm)

Date: Sept. 15-16, 2009

Ravelry

These little guys are small, quick to make, and are so cute that they'd fit right in on an episode of Dr. Who. They don't take much yarn either since I only needed 5g for each one. The original landing party is destined to be a Christmas gift but the subsequent waves are going to be for me...and a few of my choice lieutenants. 

Soon, all your base are belong to us!
