I had some of this leftover yarn that I dyed with Kool Aid (I call it Bird of Paradise) and wasn’t sure what to do with it. I ended up striping it with some soft grey to make this hat by Leethal. To add more flair to it I needle felted hearts over the ears. Because of the aviator style of the hat and the red hearts I call this hat my Amelia EarHEART hat.
I’m not trying to turn my blog into a knitting blog or anything, but this is what happens when you’re holed up for a few days trying to get over being sick. You have all the time in the world to knit! A friend of mine handspun this stunning yarn and I fell hard for it. I bought it from her ages ago and just now found a project for it. The lace on this shawl is supposed to look like ginkgo leaves. Pretty! You can see more photos and read more details on my Ravelry page. I still have about 100 yards of this yarn left so I’m knitting a quick lace scarf with it- I’ll post pictures of that when I’m done.
I finished my Strawberry Shortcake mitts! I even painted my nails to match. Read more about my knitting on my Ravelry page.
I knit this cowl for a friend as part of a knitting swap. Read more on my Ravelry page.
Finished my Aquaphobia Socks for Ravellenic Games on Ravelry! P.S. I dyed that yarn with food coloring!
I started a thread on Ravelry asking people to show me the most popular thing they knitted or crocheted. What in your projects page do people love the most? Your best sellers?

Knit this dress for my friend Rowan on her 5th birthday. The yarn I used is from a sweater I got at Goodwill. I took it apart, reskeined it, dyed it and knit it into a dress and sweater.
