This is the blanket that never ends...

Hey, look! I finished something! , Knitting , Project Spectrum

It just goes on and on, my friends... um, anyway. I think I like this Rule of Ten thing: here's finish number eight for 2006 so far!

A hat, to match the Boring Baby Blanket. I had extra yarn, and Princess Aaralyn likes to be matching. (Well, honestly, I'm not sure she's quite up to such complex fashion decisions yet, but her mommy sure likes it when she's matching. Which isn't hard, because 90% of the child's clothes are pink. And super-adorable. But I digress.) I made up the pattern as I went along - the lace at the top (i.e. where I got bored of stockinette) is supposed to more or less correspond with the lace on the blanket. And that ruffle? Cute, but casting on 240 stitches for a baby hat? Can we say "counter-intuitive"? Anyway, if people like the pattern I'll write it up. Let me know.

Since I finished that, I got to start something new! I decided it was time for something pink for Project Spectrum. This is French Fleurette scarf in coral Zephyr. Because really, what says "spring" like pretty little pink French flowers?

This is my first time working with Zephyr. I'm liking it, but it is splitting a bit. Let's hope that stops as I get used to it. My goal is to have this done by Easter. But I'd better finish something else sooner than that, because I want to start Rogue SOON.

Fun hat!! Oh, I'll be following your Zephyr knitting - I have some to dye in my stash...

I love the hat. Please do post the pattern. And how do you know how many stitches to cast on for a ruffle like that? I can never figure out ruffles.

Cute hat!
And, as an extra bonus, when the child grows out of it... it can be worn by a roll of toilet paper
(sorry, that's just what it reminds me of, no negative reflection on your knitting whatsoever :)

...and, of course, the fact that I have a lot more experience with toilet paper than I do with baby heads (thank goodness!)
