Okay so I blocked the Sade hat that I test knit for Luliriisi (I may never get the hang of spelling that, but she knows I loves her).

And I think it turned out really well.

I have a big head, this is actually a slouchy beret style, I didn’t add any repeats because I wanted it to be basically this size, roomy but warm.

And now y’all can go over to Julia’s blog and buy the pattern (http://www.luliriisi.me.uk/2011/02/02/sade/) It’s also available on Ravelry. I’m a fan, I can’t wait to get into the matching mittens, I’m doing them in mostly black with orange highlights at the ribbing me thinks.

I’m also experimenting with curling my hair, so far it seems like a good thing. Lets see how long I can do it for.

On the needles: L’Amour et la Morte, I just finished the second sock’s color work top and am moving into the cables. Winter Bouquet Socks, still on the leg of the first one. Shalder for me!, I just set the body aside and cast on the sleeve. Feb. Baby Jacket, almost at the seperating the arms from the body portion. Also I think there will be a basic pair of socks going on the needles for my auntie. Slow going knit wise around here, but I’m enjoying it all.

I also washed the Kauni… I have a shawl idea floating in my head, and once the baby jacket is off the needles I’m sure it will start coming to fruition… stay tuned for an open call to test knitters 😉
