A first FO


I have finished the first hat on my list and have now started working on the second. For this hat, I used Kim's hat pattern from Last Minute Knitted gifts and some yarn that I bought years ago to teach my son to knit. I was surprised by how nicely it turned out.

I am now working on a hat for my friend, in Frog Tree pima cotton. I initially wanted to try a Brioche stitch hat but that seemed too complicated to learn right now so have decided to do an Odessa hat without beads in 2 colors, we'll see how it turns out.

I am up to the hood on my Wonderful Wallaby and so I expect to finish it this weekend.

This KAL has been very helpful in keeping me going and it has been such fun to see other people's projects unfold.

Isn't it fun how the color spirals? I gave three similar ones last year for gifts.
