More Klara

I am having so much fun working with Noro yarn. It really is gorgeous stuff. I am almost finished my first swatch and will then keep going with the next. Klara is a fast knit.

I have been trying to resist buying any more yarn or planning any more projects. I did decide to add two pieces to my list.

Anna's Pumpkin Hat

When Anna was born someone gave her an eggplant hat. It was handknit by a woman in Maine and oh so cute. Anna wore it more than a year until it just wouldn't go over her head. I was looking for a similar pattern the other day and came up with the Pumpkin Hat:

The hat is a free pattern from Susan Esser. I have some Brown Sheep Worsted in the right colors, so a pumpkin hat for Anna is on the list.

Easy Poofy Capelet

We are now in the humid rainy fall of Texas, which means that the air condition in the building where I work is absolutely freezing. In response, I've decided to make the Easy Poofy Capelet pattern that I found on Fuzzy Galore.

Isn't it cute?

I wasn't sure which color of Poof yarn from Crystal Palace to use, but I settled on Berry Parfait:

I'm hoping this will be an easy knit, because I am COLD at work.
