More Knitting!

I was living solo in a hotel room in Chicago all last week while at a conference for work. I always miss the kiddos and the husband when I'm away, but I do try to focus on the positives, like the peace and quiet, the tidy room, the exquisite pleasure of no one needing anything from me when I walk in the door at night. And of course, the knitting time. The extra time saw me starting and finishing Dizzle's winter hat, out of the handspun I posted last.

This is Bias Riddged Hat (Ravelry link) - not many of them out there on Ravelry, but it is a quick and easy knit and just a perfect pattern for handspun.

I also got a start on something I've had in the queue for a while. This is Maryse's fabulous Gathered Scarf, in Sereknity's "Rock Lobster" colorway in merino/alpaca/silk and it is for me me me! I've had this pattern/yarn combo in mind all along, and I'm excited to finally have started.

Last but not least, my extra time allowed me to get a lot of the finishing work on Sunrise Circle done. A post on that will be coming soon.

You could a burlap sack on that kid's head and she'd still look cute.

Dang! How cute is that hat??!!

Sometimes it feels really good to get a few projects worked on without interruptions, doesn't it?
