New Colorway

I just listed a brand new colorway--Valentine Michael Smith--in my Etsy shop especially for Fiber Friday. It has nothing to do with Valentine's Day--it's actually named after the main character in one of my favorite books, Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein.

I've been working on a bunch of new colorways so be on the lookout for them. (I will probably try to debut them on Fridays.)

Yesterday, instead of working on the things I should have been working on, I made this adorable hat for the daughter of a friend.

It's from this pattern, which is an attempt to make a hat like the one worn by Lyra in the movie The Golden Compass. I didn't actually see the movie (although I adore the books), but the hat was just so cute that I couldn't pass it up. Wish I had more little girls to knit for. I used three strands of Lion Brand Homespun instead of what was called for in the pattern--it's what I had.

Well, if we ever get around to seeing you, you'll have our little girl to knit for. :)
