Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Love the Canterbury Bells blossom. What are you planning to do with the flowers when your little friend moves on to another hat? A cluster of them might be really pretty decorating a grown-up-sized hat. :)

I've moved the link to MrJamestown on National Geographic over to the sidebar.

La – I hate to see the weekends come to an end. They are just too sweet, too cozy, and too much fun. This was an all knitting weekend – I didn't do much of anything else I had to do and I had a different knitting project for every room in the house – excepting the kitchen. There were teal blue sleeves – there is only binding off to do on them – no photos because really now – blobs of teal blue stockinette are not worth photographing.

But there were also socks – which you saw yesterday – turned heel on sock #1

And Nicky Epstein knitted flowers!

This is leftover sock yarn – It's the one she calls Canterbury bells. It turned out bigger than I thought it would.

This is Patons Brilliance – and I had to use it double and I'm still not sure I'm all that fond of it. You really do need a yarn with a lot of resistance so those loops puff out a bit – or you need very thin slippery stuff used in multiple strands.

These really are fun to make. The Bird family approves.
