Another lace knitted hat

This is the same pattern as the first blue hat, made with Cascade 220, started May 26, and finished May 31. It is a darker shade of blue, with a little bit of brighter blue & green through the yarn.

2nd Stitch Marker exchange

This is the set of stitch markers from Lisa M. and they are my favorite color, pink. Also can't wait to try the tea!

Lace closeup

It turned out a little large, but it's better than too tight IMO.

Lace hat

The hat was made from an online pattern and the yarn was Patons Classic Merino, my favorite commercial wool yarn. It was a fast knit, only worked on it a small amount of time each day. Started on Monday and done by Thurs, May 8. It went to Isle Royale along with the green felted mittens with our oldest daughter yesterday...she will need something warm out there.

Close up of ribbing

Lori took these photos with her camera, I want one! Mother's Day hint, hint.. You can see the detail in the ribbing knitted on after the felting was done, as well as the different slubs of color in the yarn.

F.O: Felted mittens

The felted mittens for me are finally finished. They were made from my handspun and finished on May 3, 2008.
