This is my first project working with cables and they are coming out beautifully in this yarn. It's kind of annoying dealing w/the cable needle, and you can kind of tell that one of the cables is messed up. Still, I'm really excited about it.
I finished the back, am 75% done w/ the left front piece and 50% through the right front piece.
My friend at work had a baby back in October. With all of my traveling and unfinished projects, I never had a chance to make her something. I really liked this hat that Mindy made last year in Koigu. So, Friday I stopped off at the Free Library and picked up The Elegant Knitter and cast on for the Soft Baby Hat. Only thing is, I didn't like the way the pattern was supposed to look. Instead, I liked Mindy's inside out version. So, although I knit the hat according to the pattern, I kept all ends on the outside so it could be flipped inside out. I like it much better this way.
This was such a quick knit. I finished it last night. Kind of wish I had a doll that I could try the hat on and see how it looks. It's a great girl pattern. Not so much for a boy. :-)
