First of all, thank you all for the all the lovely comments and compliments I got on my picture yesterday. It's been a bit overwhelming! I enjoyed all the creative posts a lot, it was so much fun!
Day 3 of the blog week, yet another lovely topic. Everyone is asked to write about their knitting or crochet hero. My ultimate knitting heroine is definitely Stephanie Dosen from Tiny Owl Knits, no doubt about it.

Her designs are soooo magical and creative. Just looking at them makes you want to get your needles out.
I didn't knit when I started this blog, I only used crochet. Knitting wasn't really appealing to me, to difficult. Her beekeeper's quilt made me want to knit and I learned it just for that pattern. Look at all the colours and patterns!
Of course once I got the hang of knitting more projects by here design followed.
I learned felting with this little free felted ring pattern and later also made felted slippers (purple bunny slippers that you seen in the Monday post).
What I also love about this designer is that she is such a nice and inspiring person. She made a group on Ravelry that grew into one big happy family. It's a very active group with lots of things going on, so many warm people have joined. Just recently I joined in a swap and it was so much fun! I got the most amazing things from my swap partner (more about that next week). This might all sound a bit cheesy to some of you, but people that joined the group know that it's true!
Stephanie helps when you don't understand her pattern (which doesn't occur much since I think they are very well written) and she response to any email very quick.
She also has a blog here where she shares some bits of her life. I hope she will publish some new patterns soon, some birdies told me that she is writing a book.
I love her patterns so much that I even made a New Year's resolution to knit 12 Tiny Owl Knits projects this year. I made 4 so far and the beekeeper's quilt is a work in progress for the rest of the year.
The fourth project is something I haven't shared on this blog yet. It is a fox stole! It is soooo cute and I get a lot of lovely comments when I wear it. Although some people also look a bit puzzled at me.
Do you like it?
The dog didn't like it too much:
Don't attack the fox you silly dog! If you want more info on the fox stole check it on my Ravelry here.
Next on the to-do list are these:

I already bought the pattern and felting yarn, so it's won't be long until I can share these with you! For those that wonder what these little houses are, you can store hooks and needles in them!

Isn't that adorable?
Can't wait to see your heroes, if you want to find more blogs that join the blogging week google 3KCBWDAY3 and you'll find them.
Thanks for stopping by!
