First of all, I finally got around to uploading a photo of my wedding veil in action!

Here's a roundup of other projects in progress. I've been working on my Sarah Top, the next pattern I'll be writing up for Knit Picks. Its going swimmingly so far, can't wait to get past the ribbing and see how the fun part works out! Stay tuned.

I'm also working on lining my dad's camera case for him- I need to hand sew the lining in.

I started my Irish Diamond Shawl, FINALLY! I've had this in the queue for about 4 years!

I spent an evening working out double knit entrelac for my color sampler scarf- which has now become a color sampler moebius cowl. It'll be gorgeous, and the double knit entrelac is not nearly as tricky as I expected.

The "A" in sailing is now finished on my cross stitch

I've been working through a few repeats of my backstrap belt

Lastly, I finally remembered to take a photo of attempt #3 at my penguin vest, though I haven't actually worked on it in a couple months.

Pucker Up Hat

I finally got my newest pattern finished and published! Its a really quick knit, cute hat, and it would be really cute in a hand painted yarn. Enjoy! 

Pucker Up Hat

Pucker Up is a perfect hat for Fall or Spring because it’s very lightweight and breaths well. Its 3-dimensional texture keeps it interesting to knit, and nice to pull out at the end of Winter when you still need a hat, but are tired of wearing one- Pucker Up is there with fun texture! It knits up quickly, but looks more complicated than it is.

Measure the head around the widest part to determine size, sizing is given to fit each head size with a beanie style fit. If you prefer a “slouchy” fit, cast on and follow ribbing instructions for your head size, then increase in the last ribbing row to the number of stitches given for one size larger.

Pattern uses simple short rows (no wrapping and turning!) And includes instructions both for knitting back backwards or turning the work to create the short rows.

Gauge- 22st/4inches, #3 and 4 needles
Yarn- Knit Picks Stroll Sport 120-210 yards
Size- 18", 20", 22", 24", 26"
