Any EASY free hat patterns??

I have a friend that wants a simple (good for me) stocking cap pattern that rolls to form a brim. I've said before that I will not knit anything that has to fit...so I'm already in trouble.

Daughter's Afghan

I just finished an Afghan for my daughter. I used the "Designer Shawl" pattern created by Karin Skacel Haack. I had to add on to the length and the width in order to make it 48"x70".

Spider's Web Fichu

This was a quick knit from the Victorian Lace Today book. I used US size 7 needles, 100% cotton, 50 g, 5 sts/inch yarn - in turquoise - I TOLD YOU NO MORE BLACK AND I MEANT IT!

Cherry Leaf Shoulder Shawl

Well I finally finished this shawl. It was made with 8/2 Tencel in black - after this one I don't think I can work with black for a while! My eyes feel crossed - as does my temper.

Cleaning out stash

Hey - if anyone's cleaning out stash, or wanting to try knitting something they've never knitted I'd gladly take your knitted project once your done. The only hitch - it must be 7"x9".

Quick Scarf

Here's a pic of a scarf. I sort of designed this myself using scraps of bamboo yarn. I needed to learn how to do a Russian Join. What better way than to do a lot of them?
