Hats and Cats

Well, OK, one hat and one cat:
Sophie and red hat

This was the pluperfect travel project: easy to knit, 1 x 1 rib for much of it and then stockinette for the rest, both of which would have been boring boring boring without distraction, conversation and...babies!

Christmas 2010 203

Well, OK, again: one baby :) (We're going with she will grow into it!).

The hat is a dubbelmossa again, using yarn from Jenna's fiber CSA and some handspun (here), here it is in it's unblocked state showing the ribbing:

I know! It looks very weird (we will not discuss what it looks like.....)! but it folds up nicely and the ribbing helps it to fit closely:

I suppose I should block the thing, but I've just been wearing it as is....

What of all the projects to be finished? Not yet. I've been running yarn bundles:

Bags and bags of them, for sample dyeing. Book One of the Dye Sample Book is back in production, and I head for Wisconsin for a working holiday this week. Plus?

I have been spinning.

Gammie- kind of makes her look like a cone head! Good color for the bebe tho.

I have been spinning too. My best woman friend got her first loom, a Harp. So I have been busy spinning up some roving from my endless stash for her to use as she becomes a weaver. Such fun!

She's adorable in the big hat! Why block, it keeps you warm and looks good to boot! And, honestly, blocking would just make you question what it really looked like ;-)

Great hat! Cute cat! Adorable baby! I want to try one of those hats that fold in. Also, baby heads are so hard to size! I've yet to make a baby hat that fits perfectly.

Agree w/above ... cute all around!

Re. unblocked hat, it looks like ... the sole of a shoe; a paramecium; a Schmoo. What would a psychiatrist say about Sara's Rorschach-test hat?
