|the ridge cowl, purl soho|
she wears it with a little more sass then in this picture, makes it a little more of her own. however it is worn, it looks great and i am really pleased with how it came out. the yarn is very light but warm and gives the cowl a lot of movement. whenever she wears it i am amazed at how great it looks. but i will never make another one.
maybe i should qualify that by saying i love the pattern and i love the yarn, but i will never put them together again. ever.

still, the cowl is done, my sweet friend loves it and i can move on to other knitting.
which i did.
neck and neck with finishing the cowl, i finished the first sock in the pair i am knitting for myself. it is wonderful and i love it!
|zig zag lace sock|
the pattern was one size fits all and i was concerned it would be a bit small, but it is really the perfect size. i have already turned the heel and finished the gusset on the second sock. which is very exciting since it means it is almost done. which means i would then have a pair; which means i can wear them!
the last thing i made was a baby hat. i don't knit for babies but a friend of ours is having a baby in march and i thought it could use a hat or two. so this is the first...
|baby hat with top knot|
this was a very quick knit. it is easy to forget how small people are when they are born which makes their articles of clothing small. as well as being easy and quick to knit. hopefully she and the baby will like it.
my gauge was off a smidge on this one so it came out a little bigger than i planned. i am thinking of knitting another hat that will be smaller. different pattern, different gauge.
but it won't happen until next week, after the valentine knitting is done!
