Reversible Two Needle Hat

Quick, little knit. This is the Reversible 2 Needle Hat pattern in the children's size. The yarn I used is called I Love This Yarn! and is from Hobby Lobby. The colorway is #612 - Retro Modern Ombre. The hat pattern is very easy; just a two-row repeat. You can find the pattern at www.cheapknittingpatterns.com/homepage/downloads/NP12.pdf

Stripes

I have been knitting some washcloths/dishcloths
using some of the Sugar and Cream "Stripes" in my stash. Quick, easy tax season knitting.



Tax Season Is Finished

Tax season is finished! The granny square afghan is finished in time to beat the deadline. Our knitting guild took up the challenge to provide blankets for the children of a Michigan National Guard unit deploying to Iraq in May. These will be items of comfort to the children whose parents are deploying. Many members of the guild knitted, crocheted, and quilted blankets for this cause. We also came together with others to have a fleece blanket making marathon. What wonderful things can happen when we work together with others who want to share their talents and abilities. Here is the granny square afghan I donated.
