Finally… I’m doing a picture friendly post! I’ve been busy (well, a little bit, not much) over here at Chez Pfohl… and here’s a rundown of what’s been done:
First off… a hat for my little 2 year old niece. Before anyone tries to comment on the colors, bear in mind that this little girl has two older brothers. I made one in blue and one in brown for my nephews, and she wanted to have *both* colors, so she got stripes. I added the pompon but was reasonably sure that my sister wouldn’t want it there, so I secured it loosely and gave her instructions on how to tighten it if she wanted to keep it.
After I finished Rackell’s hat, I started on XanaduRayne’s hat. This hat is a birthday present to her that’s a little late. Considering she didn’t tell me she wanted it until her birthday, I figure better late than never. The hat is a combination of things… To be honest, I got bored. There’s 2x2 ribbing, seed stitch, a cable, more seed stitch, and stockinette stitch in this hat. You can’t really see the cables, so I took a close up picture. Pretty snifty, hrm?
Here’s the two RAOKs that I received while I was on vacation… to whomever sent me the wonderful Rowan Babies mag, I lost your card and I want to give credit to you for sending me this wonderful magazine!
Then to the wonderful Annie in New Zealand sent me sock yarn! Woot! There’s also a skein of what looks to be a novelty yarn like bernat boa… it’s called Sullivan’s Knitting Yarn in Lilac Sizzle. The picture can’t do justice to this yarn!

glad you like Rowan Babies. It was my gift to you for being such a kind, steady, and remarkably good-humored SP hostess (despite severe provocation ;).
all the bes,
great looking hats!
