Project Update

A green cowl for me.

Hand dyed sock yarn from Kitchen Sink Dyeworks, knit up in a twig lace pattern, with the ends grafted together to make a seamless tube.

And a Space Invaders Hat for Josh.

Josh's hat was designed for his birthday. It's double knitting, so it's completely reversible and super warm. It's also made to measure, so it shouldn't squish his curls too much.

Happy Birthday to me!

A snapshot of my yarn haul from yesterday.

A closeup.

Dream in Color, a yarn manufacturer in the Chicago suburbs, had a warehouse/mill ends sale yesterday, my birthday. I brought home about $300 worth of lovely hand dyed yarn for $75.

It was great!
