Christmas Knitting: Lace Beret for Mom

This was a good challenge – a fancy lace beret from Vogue knitting in light fingering weight yarn. Mom had mentioned that she wanted this beret and I knew I had the perfect yarn for it – which happened to be in her color!

Christmas Knitting: Dean Street Hat for Allain

I knit this entire hat while watching the latest Die Hard movie at Jay & Lisa’s. Small pattern = chunky yarn makes for a fast project. Allain has told me that his girlfriend has claimed it – I’m glad she likes it and that it’s gone to a good home.

Koolhaas Hat Gift for Vince

Picked up the pattern for the beautiful Koolhaas hat by Jared Flood and and some Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed in the color “brindle” and made it for my friend Vince…

Selbu Beret

This wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be…

Welcome to 2009

It was a busy December as I raced to finish crafting Christmas gifts. The holidays have gone by quickly with a quick trip to visit the parents and a multitude of social engagements.

I knit a fun bobble hat for my mom as a Christmas gift,

a 1920′s-style cloche hat (out of delicioulsy soft cashmere,

and another warmer winter hat.

It feels like it could be a very busy and productive year ahead. I hope it’s a good one for everyone.


Made a fun beret this week…

and should be done my mittens by the end of the week…
