This ‘n’ that

I hope you had a relaxing New Year’s Day! It was fine here, (but cold!!)and we had a nice day visiting with a good friend.

Craft-wise, I have some updates!  Having kept the heat on my drying handspun, all day yesterday, it dried pretty quickly. Before washing:

And after:

It’s very squishy and soft, and looks nicer after washing, although it’s still very thick/thin. I wonder if it would be nice knit up in a simple garter cowl, after dyeing.

My trio of Magic Coffee Baby Hats is done!  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/magic-coffee-baby-hat (Pssst, the Wee Boy is the second baby pictured!  He was a sweet little hat model….)

The rainbow one is my favorite, but weaving in all those ends was no treat.

With gift/deadline knitting done, I’ve picked up my neglected Monkey socks and took my Pop Blanket out of hibernation.  I’m determined to finish these two languishing projects soon.   But there is a big distraction looming!  My sock KAL group is knitting a hat this time around, so I’ve been poking around in my stash for appropriate yarns. The pattern is called “Breaking the Waves,” so I thought grays and blues would be appropriate.   http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/breaking-the-waves So far I have this:

But I likely have more possibilities in my stash– this was pretty much just yarns I had  readily available. Apparently I have a thing for blue. Seriously, if you ever catch me looking at blue yarn, jab me with a knitting needle!!
