In the meantime, today I knit up a little hat I'm calling Falling Stars because the stitch pattern of the brim reminds me of twinkling stars...the kind we lay out on the hay wagon and watch.
I've also been working on a comfortable design for my wee one. She needed something for the fall and I wanted something that is a little en vogue right now, so chose a comfy "grandpa" sweater with a shawl collar. The design is simple with straight lines and an easy knit, but I included a bit of short row shaping and a fun little detail at the back to give in an "English Storybook" feel and I am really pleased with the overall outcome.
And as always, I've been spinning my little heart out. This time, I've been spinning something for a fellow Ravelry friend. I love spinning for myself, but there is something that is just so satisfying about spinning something and gifting it to someone.
