Jayne Hat

I just downloaded a pattern for the Jayne hat at the library. They print five pages for free and the pdf is 4 pages. I already have the yarn so I'm looking forward to starting later today. My boyfriend already said he'd be a lot  happier if he just had his Jayne hat to wear while making arrows.  Who knew he was such a Firefly fan.

Tadpole Loom Knitting

I've been working on my Tadpole loom making a lilac scarf with darker stripes. I took a break to write holiday cards, but I need to get back out there and bring the loom in because the wind just picked up. Sometimes we get gusts up to 50 MPH. I think the loom may be slower than knitting with needles. At least I sure seem to be plodding along.

This is my second project on the loom. First I made a pair of baby booties for a friend that just had a little girl. My first pair made on regular needles was too small. Oops. Or if they don't fit this baby, my daughter is having another baby in February. I'm sure they'll fit someone.
