One More Hat
Yesterday, I knit this darling little baby bonnet. It's for this contest. The pattern is called "Super Quick Baby Bonnet" by Dilys Sutherland. I really like the lace detail near the ribbing. I think I'll make a pair of booties to go with the bonnet. I used Red Heart Soft yarn in the "Leaf" colorway. With this basic pattern, you could change up the stockinet stitch with a basket weave or any lacy stitch.
Tonight, I'll be at the WeHo SnB at the Original Farmers Market. Everyone is working on various projects...some summery, some leftover wintery items. Here in L.A., it's been hot during the day (from 75 to 90 degrees) and cool at night (from 40-65 degrees). I never know what to wear!
One of my fave SnBr's, Natalie, wrote a glowing piece about me yesterday! It was so sweet of her to dedicate an entire post to me and the Eye of the Partridge stitch. I have been singing the praises of this stitch, using multi-colored yarn. The effects can be startling. Natalie explains the stitch beautifully, along with my method of quicker-knitting for throwers. Thanks for all the compliments, Natalie...you're a peach!
