Instant Gratification

Took a break from The Sweater That Never Ends for some instant gratification in the form of the sweet little baby flap hat below. Based on the "Kim's Hats" pattern in Joelle Holverson's Last Minute Knitted, love, love that book.

Process, Not Product

Nice Poncho, Martha! Posted by Hello Surely the most exciting fiber news of the week was the release of Martha and her fabulous poncho, made for her by a sister inmate (or, as the NY Daily News so delicately put it, a "crocheting con." According to Martha, this women crochets 12 hours a day. Hmmm.....Not much progress made on my own knitting this week. Still slogging away on Sam's sweater. Did a few rows on a lace scarf. Started and abandoned a prototype baby bootie--I was thinking of having a go at the angora booties in Last Minute Knits to delve into some precious bits of stash; I'm glad I did the prototype before getting tangled up with the fuzzy stuff. The booties are as cute as can be, but the pattern is much to complicated for such a little object (and working with double pointed needles is still like wrestling with a porcupine). Oh, well, process not product.
