A hat to match...

I had quite a bit of left-over yarn, so I made up this little hat to go with the blanket. There was no pattern so I just matched some of the patterns in the blanket itself.

I'm officially over the edge. I only want to make socks. When you guys said it was addictive I thought you were kidding, ha!

As I approach the end of a project, I start planning the next because I know that dead time between projects is not good for my mental health.

Spiral Counterpane Update

About 30 minutes ago, I stitched together the last of the spirals. Now I'll weave in the loose ends and begin knitting and blocking the small triangles to fill in the gaps around the edge.

QAL decision

Well, after a good night sleep I decided that I would try and thread back and rip a few rows from my QAL shawl and go back and correct a few mistakes.

Another terrific book in anyone's library. You can get it cheap and it is still full of ideas and creative spirit for you to squeeze it out. lol!

Here it is in all it's blocked out glory. It took less than 8 balls of yarn to complete (what to do with the leftovers *grins*).
