I have been pretty busy lately. Worked nights all weekend so when it was slow I worked on this cute Kitty hat for one of the girls I work with who is expecting. Nolan posed with it on for me isn't he a cutie pie even with a girly hat on?
This is the back of the hat you can see I had trouble with the ears coming out right, one is bigger than the other. Oh well I'm giving it away and she won't care right? Next time I knit this pattern I will know better. I should have placed a stitch marker so I knew when to increase.
I have found some good deals on yarn lately. This is Cherry Tree Hill, DK 50% silk-50% wool in Rose Garden and Green Mountian Madness. Half off I couldn't resist. One of these, I think is telling me it wants to be Clapotis from Knitty.
I couldn't resisit this skein of Noro for a hat for Hubby. He really needs a knitted hat for winter.
I got a great deal on Cascade 220 from Webs, but I didn't like the color once I got it here. It was way greener than the online pic. Learned my lesson there. This is called Lake Chelen, pretty but not what I wanted.
The wonderful ladies at Sister's Scrapbooking and Crafts in town let me exchange my yarn for this one. This is called Midnight Heather. It is for the secret project. I think this picture still makes it look lighter than it really is, it's almost a navy. I am excited to start these new projects, but I have Kyle's sweater to finish and baby hats to make for people at work. 2 more hats to make.
