baby blankets and berets.

Standard

This is some hand dyed Romney I got from Golden Willow and spun up, it’s a fingering weight and is very pretty. The colors meet at some places and thats an accomplishment to me. There’s a fair bit of yardage, once I get the twist set I’ll probably take more pictures. It was my self project last weekend. It turned out beautifully. I am tres pumped to knit it up into something.
This is the new beret in all it’s glory, made from clapotis leftovers. It is lovingly known among me and my friends as the “getting over you” beret. It really did help the whole purging him from my life aspect. And the beret itself hides a multitude of hair sins, yay for bedhead hiding accoutrements. I’m down with not having to deal with my hair on class days, I’d much rather spend the time making and consuming coffee.

As you can see I’ve been hard at work on the baby blanket for new baby. It’s actually done but I lamely haven’t taken any newer pictures. I love how bebop looks like he’s being tucked in by the blanket. It’s really big and has the ability to be both light and warm. Alas I bought way too much yarn for the actual project so I have at least 8 balls of random colors left over from the blanket. But that’s okay, I’ll think of something to do with them, maybe another Baby Suprize Jacket? That would work. Or if I can find something that takes the same guage I may make something else.
