FO Friday…Finally

I love Fridays. They are the only weekday not filled to the brim with “musts”. So, today, I went off to the Chiropractor, then Knitting at Knitting Pretty. I got models for the two new hats there, so we finally have photos to share.

My MMalabrigo Hat!

I find it sad and frustrating that no matter how hard I tried, I could not get a picture of the gorgeous color of this yarn. Malabrigo worsted; Whales Road colorway. Yummy soft and pretty, too. 🙂

Then, I decided to try to make a cowl with some Colinette Jitterbug that I bought in SanFransisco in August. The plan was to use it double stranded and just do a Mistake Rib all the way. After several inches, it became clear to me that it just wasn’t soft enough for me to want to put around my neck. But…it was so pretty that I just had to do something with it. So, I kept going and made it into a hat. I like it. Hope it’s intended owner does too.

  1. All VERY nice!

  2. Those are two great hats!! And those gloves must be soooooo soft in malabrigo!!! Happy Friday!

  3. Well, I think the Mmmmalabrigo looks yummy, even if the colors are even better in person! Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Wow! Look at you go. I love those two hat patterns! I now have to lurk around your Rav to find the pattern. hehehe

    And that MMmmmalabrigo looks gorgeous regardless!!

  5. All lovely! I especially like the colors in the Jitterbug hat (though I bet I’d love the Malabrigo too if it were more cooperative about being photographed). Shy yarn, it’s a problem for a blogger.
