The Flacon

Just finished the Flacon doily from the Yarnover site. I did it in an evening including the blocking. I used my mother's old recipe of sugar and water to starch it.

Off-topic but soooooooooooo cute

Had to share a picture of the latest edition to our family. Nine week old Shih Tzu puppy named Henri Bourassa (anyone who knows Montreal metro will know how I chose the name). He is too much.

The OTHER Thank You gift

Finally, I wanted to post my Tri-Colored Flecked Tweed Hat. I am soooooo pleased with this. It's soft, feels great to wear, and the pattern came out beautifully in the colors I chose.

Chevron Hat

I knitted this just for fun. It's not the greatest hat in the world, but I am pleased with how it turned out...except the photo is horrible.
