I keep thinking that summer is going to be filled with nonstop activity but really...it's pretty tame in comparison to some people I know. A few days to celebrate my cousin's wedding,Vacation Bible School, a week of camping, my SIL's wedding...not too much traveling and insanity.
As you know last week I finished up a sweater and needed something to occupy my hands on the drive out of town Saturday. I had one leftover skein of Knit Picks Full Circle wool that was just begging to be made into a hat. I figured why not. I had already used its other sad leftover half skein to make a Cabbage Patch sweater (I will put the bare bones instructions in another post).
Awhile back I had knit Tiny Owl Knits pattern Orchids and Fairy Lights. It's a beautiful pattern and I just didn't have enough yarn to do it justice. It worked okay, but I think I only did half the amount of repeats needed and so it is more of a beret than a beanie.
Looks way better, right?
So now I have no guilt about throwing myself into an intense shawl pattern :D I also have heard from my friend about what kind of baby sweater she'd prefer and so I'll be peeking around on KnitPicks for a washable yarn since it'd be silly to give her a newborn sweater that will felt :D Oh! And I finally got a better picture of my last sweater. With buttons! :D
