Over the holidays I've not picked up my knitting once, but I did crank out some crochet hats with the red-heart-like acrylic that my mom brought from her old yarn stash. Now I just need to find a place to donate them.

Here's the pattern on Ravelry:

Just keep knitting... knitting... knitting...

Yes, I'm still around. Just not feeling like I have a lot to say, and busily knitting along.

Here's my latest finished project: a Multnomah shawl in Wollemeise. YUM.

Not a great picture at all, but I couldn't wait to wear this sweater. Soft and cushy and just the right amount of warmth. I actually love the 3/4 length sleeves, after being skeptical about them. They don't get in my way while typing.

Pattern: #77 Vine Lace Top Down Cardigan by SweaterBabe
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Bulky in Cypress.

Ridinghood for Loretta's 8yo in Mirasol Chirapa

I'm very proud of this one! Nice pattern, though I made fair number of modifications for a thinner yarn, larger size, less full skirt, longer arms, etc.

Charity Hat #3 for 2009 - Nubby Brim Cloche

This is one that I crocheted. The body is worked in HDC, alternating between working in the back loop only and the front loop only. The "eyelet" row where the chain is threaded through is worked in DC. And the brim is worked in SC.

Both the pattern for the hat and the pattern for the butterfly embellishment are free on the interwebs, at the following locations:

Butterfly Embellishment:

This was made with a USK 10 1/2 (6.50mm) size hook, two strands of Bernat Aspen Soft held together. I long ago lost the ball bands, so I do not know the exact colorway names, but they are pretty true burgandy and hunter green.
