Finally, Some FOs

Here's Donna's Hat:

Maple Seed Hat for Donna

Alpaca Silk Aran in the Maple Seed Hat. This combination of pattern and yarn makes a wonderful chemo cap.

And a Foliage for me:


Fibre Company Organik

I love this hat! I've never knit a hat top down before. Casting on is a little tricky, but then it's an easy pattern to knit.

I also finished my "One Row Scarf" and my Noro Stripe scarf, but I'll save those for another post. I haven't photographed them yet.

And I seem to have succumbed to the dreaded head cold everybody's been getting. I've been living on benadryl and mucinex - lovely - and sleep. In fact… it's nap time.

So, I delurked.


Oh, and I am still knitting Donna's Hat.

Monday, Monday…

Sort of feels like that song…
It's gray and cold. Makes me want to sit by a fire and knit. Hmmm…

Let's see, what did I do over Winter Break?
Some knitting. Striped scarf is into its second set of Silk Garden balls, I finished DH's hat and one that had been meant for a friend about to undergo chemo, but I think I'll make her one out of something softer. This one is Lamb's Pride, and that could be a little itchy against bare skin.

Craig's Hat My Hat

I finished the Amherst knitting and it is ready to be seamed.

I decided to undo the bind off armhole on the Lady of the Lake and redo it using a stretchy bind off. This is what has been holding up production on that one.

I also went Yarn Hunting at thrift shops and found two American Eagle Outfitter sweaters to frog. One is a blue and white variegated version of the yellow one, and one is a deep red variegated wool.

All in all, a good time! And now, it's back to the grind so to speak. Although DS is still home for another week.
