Cadet Hats from Knitty

Some asked that I post pictures of my recently completed projects.  My niece's sweater/shrug set is in the mail to her and I have no pictures of it, but I do have pictures of the two hats I've made. 

That's me in the pics BTW.

Knit Foundry Storage Containers

Check out these great new containers from Knit Foundry.  Nancy, from Knit Foundry, was quick to respond to e-mail inquiries and was a pleasure to deal with.

I bought one in each size and I love them.  I got the yellow and the raspberry.  I was hoping the yellow would actually be brighter than it looks on my monitor and it is.  The cap really does stay put, but comes off easily when you want it to, and the container is rigid and tough so I can toss it into my backback and not worry about it.

They'll make great stocking stuffers this year, too!

Lantern Moon Needles

I recently bought a set of Lantern Moon double-pointed needles (size 1, ebony) and posted about them here.  I had recently broken one of the needles and wanted to give another update.

After I broke the needle, I e-mailed Lantern Moon via their website to see if they offered replacements.  I'm not sure what happened to my e-mail, because I never got a reply.  BUT, I finally called them last week and they were fantastic!  Not only are they sending me a replacement for the broken needle AND the needle with a cracked tip, they are throwing in an extra needle so I have a spare!  Three needles, no questions asked.  That's fantastic!  Actually, they did ask a few questions: What was I knitting?  What yarn was I using?  Pleasant conversational questions.  Great service.

Clogged

Ok, I get it now.  The wonder of the felted clogs comes from knitting the "ugly duckling" and knowing or hoping that it turns into a swan.

 I'm on the first one and have gotten to the upper.   It, so far, has been an interesting project.  Once you decipher how the pattern reads it is fairly easy to do.

My thanks to Marty who is behind me (and I mean on this project) he has done some pairs and is a good source of help.
