The first snow

You had to look quick to see our first snowfall of the season this morning.


It quickly turned to rain so there’s no evidence of any snow anymore.  That’s just fine with me tho.

Things have been busy, but of course I’ve been knitting on a “few” projects.  Eat Sleep Knit is doing a FKAL for their Yarnathon – making hats.  So we have until the end of the month to make hats and earn rewards (discount coupon) and team rewards.  Not too late to join in and the info is all on their Ravelry board.

So hats it is and of course I have several on the needles (and a couple finished).  (I’m not posting links to the patterns here right now because I don’t have time but if you want to know the patterns just go to Ravelry and my projects (justquiltin) and you’ll find the info there.

The top left/top right/bottom right  – those three are finished.    The top right and bottom right are made from the same yarn.  I have similar yarn in a different colorway and since it apparently likes to pool I’m going to make another DaVinci Cowl for the upcoming Indie Gift-A-Long (info on that on Ravelry too – it starts soon and there are of course pattern discounts for a period of time).

Anyway back to hats – the brown colorwork one is nearing completion but I think it’s turning out small — although most of these are all for donation so it will fit someone somewhere.

The hat on the bottom left –  here’s a larger image.  I love knitting this hat – knit sideways, all garter stitch, no increases or decreases the shaping is all by short rows.  Truly fun and engaging knit and I think there will be more of this hat in my future.


I also have some furry looking pom poms to add to some hats and perhaps this chunky yarn will make quick to knit hats as well


I also put the buttons on this little girl’s vest this morning – it’s my ESK 4th Quarter KAL project and also earned me two other badges.



That’s all for now – have some chores that need to get
