not much to report on the knitting front. i do have an FO though:
my so-called hat for my MIL :
to match the my so-called scarf i made her last year.
stitch pattern close up (love that macro!):
it’s just a hat, but it feels good to complete something (especially something so quick!). ETA: yarn is malabrigo in continental blue; pattern free from becky at moonfrog.com.
also, people, i need suggestions: i’ve got two hanks of this stupendousness and no idea what to do with it:
it is magallanes handspun & hand-dyed in an indigo/garnet/tangerine-y combo. it’s gorgeous. 2 hanks is like 400 yards. i do not need a scarf. my husband doesn’t want one (he’s waiting for his socks, ‘member?). there is a friend’s baby to knit for…but would these colors be too weird for a baby item? what about the baby surprise jacket? it could be quite stunning….also, baby’s sex is yet unknown,and this would really work for either a boy or a girl. thoughts?
