Neopolitan Hat

The light doesn't do this magnificent hat justice, but I love it! I am also probably keeping it. And knitting a scarf to go with it. Started the brim with a 'moss stitch'- or my interpretation of one. I didn't do a rib stitch at all and I love the way it hugs onto your head without the structure of ribbing. I have made many many hats this way, then added ear flaps, but this one, I just thought, I can't do that to you, you pretty, pretty hat. I am going to wear your ice cream colors as is. So the scarf is going to be a 'moss stitch' too. All that is it, k-p-k-p-k-p and then the next row p-k-p-k-p-k- on and on and on. In the three colors. I am sure I will go crazy at some time, but I am in the mood for a not too much thought pattern. Of course I really need to be getting in gear with K's baby gift, but I have til August...I think...

Lace Hat

I knit a lace hat in sparkly pink and purple. I love it and can't wait til it's not 100 degrees out so I can wear it. It snowed up in WY this weekend. That is where all menopausal sweat box ladies should be. I am gearing up for a baby gift for one of my dearest friends at work Kamisha, who is due in a couple months. I need to find pink, blue and teal to go together...but I don't know if I should try a blanket...ugh. I am so very BAD at blankets. I'm not much good at hats for babies, either! I probably should wait to post until I am feeling accomplished and awesome instead of the way I do now!

I haven't been knitting the last few days. OMG! I suppose it's because the last project I worked on met with a disaster in my I almost never carry somehow got smeared on it. INFAMY! And then...I just don't seem to have any ideas for an interesting project. I don't know. I love knitting and I am going to have to get another project underway at once.
