So … big things to report around here. Well, technically, the "big things" is perhaps an exaggeration. But things, definitely.
I finished a hat for Mr. B (I got it back for photos because it was deemed "not warm enough"):
This is the feeling fuzzy basic hat from the Yarn Girls’ Guide to Simple Knits knit up with two colors of Manos del Uruguay: brown and green (sorry for lack of specifics). N. B. tripling the yarn as directed might be the solution to cold-head complaints.
I also re-dyed some yarn:
To end up with some lovely grape and cherry confections:
In the mean time, I had the best mail day ever:
And took the first steps towards fixing the cold-head problem:
These Malabrigo beauties (marine + sunset) are destined for the EZ very warm hat. Which will hopefully live up to its name. The Malabrigo is *so* dreamy soft.
And finally …
Bejeweled! Two skeins of Manos on size 15 needles makes for a very lacy scarf indeed. It’s so light and wonderful …
I am now developing further cunning plans.
