I'm Knitting!

Now that I'm over a few HUGE deadlines, I'm able to show you some of the recent things I've been working on.

I'm a member of our local knitting guild, and we have a few special events that are underway. For our December meeting we are going to have a hat exchange. In October each of us brought yarn that we thought might make a nice hat. We put this yarn in a a numbered brown paper bag, drew numbers, and exchanged the yarn. I don't think that my secret hat person reads the blog, so I'm going to share the hat that I made.

The yarn was a lion brand acrylic, which I never work with. But, that is what the person wanted, so I found a nice pattern in the Yarn Girls Guide to Simple Knits book, held the yarn double with the novelty yarn that was in the bag and came up with this little rolled hat. Hope she likes it!

For our December meeting we are also supposed to produce some sort of name tags. I played with a program and made an intarsia pattern for my name. I love the purple and pink yarn that is in my stash, so that's the color scheme. The little greenish/pink bit is a flower to add to the tag. I found the pattern for the flower here: Head Huggers.

I think I will get some little beads to add to the center of the flower. Then I have to figure out how to make this thing lay flat and attach to my shirt. I'm off to our hobby store to look at plastic canvas and the like.

Since I'm finishing lots of things, I started to think about my upcoming projects. Add to that the cold weather here in Texas, and I'm expanding the stash. I bought this at our LYS:
