Don't look MOM!

Hey MOM--No peeking of you will spoil your Christmas surprise!!

While I have been working on my Christmas knitting, I had a special request on Friday. The child informed me that she needed a hat IMMEDIATELY. So, I went to the LYS and bought the requested pink yarn. Here's the weekend hat:

Pattern: Holiday Handknitting, Candy Cane Striped Hat
Yarn: Patons Merino

I wanted to soak the hat to let the color changes settle in, but I was told that there was no way that I could do so, as the hat was going to be worn on Monday. So, it looks a little lumpy, but maybe I will get to block the hat soon. This was the first project that I was able to hold the yarn in two hands. It did make things go much more quickly, and I really enjoyed the color work.

Here's the part my Mom isn't supposed to look at. This is the knit vest from Sally Melville's the Knit Stitch. I finished knitting it last week, but it needed a good block. Better pictures coming when it is seamed. I also soaked and blocked my name tag for our knitting guild. I'm bound and determined to make those holiday deadlines.
