Pink baby hat

Hello everyone!

This is going to be a very short post, just like the time it took to knit this little baby hat ;-)

The yarn is really nice to work with and I love how it looks! More details to come when the set is completed. It is time to knit the little mittens now...

Have a great Sunday!

New project

It's raining today. It's going to be a quiet day for me.

Last week, in my enthousiasm to finish Thermal I had to come to the conclusion that I would need one more skein of yarn to knit the yoke. So, I've ordered an additional skein of Knit Picks Gloss and it should arrive next week. Yes, the sweater is all knit now, except the yoke!

So, I've decided to start a pink scarf with my Précieux. However, it turned out that I did not feel that the pattern I had chosen went very well with that yarn. It's important to have a good match, otherwise the whole process will not be as enjoyable in my opinion.

All week, I've been looking for the perfect scarf with just one skein (195 yds). I wanted something simple because there is a subtle nuance in that yarn that I did not want get lost in a complicated pattern.

I've casted on a few different patterns, but always ended up frogging it. No spark! Yesterday, I offered my Baby Sheep Yoke Cardigan and this is when it hit me! With my beautiful and soft pink yarn, I could make baby accessories like hat, mittens, socks, etc. So, I've finally chosen this hat and mittens set. I'm sure there will be enough left for some tiny socks after.

It should be rather quick and fun!

Have a great Sunday!

One hundred...

... blogs in my blogroll. Wow! I can't help it. It cuts drastically on my actual knitting time, but it is so inspiring. Take a look at my blogroll...

I love reading every day stories, see recent FOs, admiring beautiful pictures, discovering new patterns, etc. It's even encouraged me to develop my own photography skills, cook new receipes and garden.

I love to see what real life friends are up to, virtually visit people from other countries who share my interests, read what well-known knitters have to say and see what knitters I've knitted patterns from will come up with in the future...

Some of them I've discovered recently, some of them I've been reading for quite some time now!

OK, I'll try to restrain myself (at least for now)... There's a certain Thermal waiting for me...

Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone!

P.S. I shall not spend it reading blogs ;-)
