My recent projects were all gift items or commissions. I completed two hats this week, a pair of house shoes and one head band from Knitty.com.
Calorimetry was made with Lion Brand's wool-ease yarn.
The dog blanket/sweater was made with Caron's Simply Soft. Yes it's an inexpensive acrylic. A dog will be wearing it and the owner doesn't know how to care for good wool
She requested I include a horse shoe for luck. If you click on those images, you can view the larger sized photo.
Hat number one is a simple cover
No real pattern, just cast on and start knitting until it was done.
Hat number two is a version of something found in the Leisure Arts book: Slouchy Beanies.
This year I have also discovered taking pictures of hats in the mirror is a challenge when you have short arms.
