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.

Gratuitous picture of yarn. Duh.
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.
Scarf I just finished knitting from yarn that I handspun. It’s a mulberry silk/merino wool blend from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. And it’s gorgeous.
Finished my Aquaphobia Socks for Ravellenic Games on Ravelry! P.S. I dyed that yarn with food coloring!
Remember that tutorial I did last summer on dyeing yarn with Kool Aid ice cubes? Yesterday, my two sons and I did some more dyeing. They dyed the yarn themselves knowing I’ll knit it up into a new winter hat for them.
Bailey chose yellow food coloring, Kool Aid Mixed Berry, KA Black Cherry and KA Cherry for his yarn.
Silas chose green food coloring, Kool Aid Mixed Berry, KA Peach-Mango an KA Lemon-Lime for his yarn.
