Yarn: 1 ball of Cascade 220, Needles: #5 and #8

Here is my completed ChicKnits bucket hat. Since I could only work on it sporadically, it took longer than it should have to finish. It came out a bit smaller than I expected but I think it still looks pretty good. Posted by Hello. When I started doing the decrease for the crown, I didn't have #8 double-pointed needles so I used my #7 needles. That's probably why it turned out a little smaller.

Mother's Day 2005 Posted by Hello

Mother's Day

I had a wonderful Mother's Day. Kurt took off early with Evan before I woke up and came back with my favorite Starbucks drink and a Noah's bagel sandwich for me. I got two wonderful cards from my two boys and a dozen roses from Daddy. Evan's present was a collage of poems he wrote at school, and Dylan gave me spending money to buy knitting supplies for my next project! Thanks Daddy ;-)

Long hiatus

Since the arrival of the baby, I really haven't had much time for knitting. I have a bunch of works in progress that, alas, have been neglected. I did manage to make a pretty little neck scarf for my mother-in-law. I used some pink-on-pink Karabella in Gossamer yarn that knitted up very quickly (during one of the baby's naps!). I cast on 15 stitches and knitted in stockinette until it was long enough to wrap around my neck. Here is my mother-in-law wearing it.
