Other than that, my sister requested a Urchin hat just like mine, but in the colors of my pup Laika's fur...
(with Mom's dog Pudge)
And I think I got it:
Erin with Mom... who got the Louisa Harding Beret (from the Gathering Roses collection).
And now they can match! Yaaaay!
And I got many knittin' goodies to feed my addiction...
From the inlaws:
The yarn is alpaca from a farm they visited over the summer!
From Mama, via gift certificate to my yarn favorite store, um pretty much ever, Babetta's!:
I still have $$$ left to spend, too!
And I've got a few little knits done in the new year...
Panta pattern from DROPS, knit with Crystal Palace Yarns Taos.
Quant from Knitty, knit with Trendsetter Tonalita. Like many others, this was my 1st entrelac & I loved it… I’m not sure when I’ll use it again, though... i haven't seen a whole lot of entrelac I like. I modified the end of the pattern to make it the same as the other end, using mightbekatrina (from Ravelry) mods.
And a hat:
I call it Little Red Cap, but the pattern is Russian Winter from
Stitch n' Bitch Nation, without the fuzzy/furry yarn. Little Red Riding Hood was most likely originally wearing a red hat, not a hood, so this is my version of the melding of both.
It's knit in Rowan Big Wool.
So that's it for now... I've got more in the works!
