Earflap hat...

I finished the Earflap hat from the Lion Pattern. Excuse the colors, I took the picture in my kitchen which I painted granny smith apple green. Pretty but everyone tends to look a bit jaundiced.

Steve wore it today!! It was about 28 out and sunny.004 I am trying to decide if I need to add a crochet row around the entire edge, maybe in a chocolate brown fuzzy yarn. I used two strands held together of Moda Dea Tweedle Dee Cinnamon Twist

Tweedle Dee is a tweed yarn with a shaded color effect. One color melts into the next. The color blend it very nice, I like the way it blends very subtly. I like it so well I think I have finally found the yarn I would like to knit that Pinwheel Sweater out of.

80% Acrylic, 16% Wool,
4% Rayon
Net wt. 100g, 3.52oz
142m, 155yds

I will take another picture outside so you can see a true idea of the color. I tossed the idea of the tassel out. If I make one for myself I will add it.

I have finally found what I will knit with the Pyramid sweater yarn. It's the Felted Market Bag from Knitty. I do have it started!! I will try and add some pics this weekend.

I am also crocheting a scarf from some yarn I had to buy at my LYS 5 balls of Ara From Dale of Norway, it is a thick/thin spun colorway of green It is called Herb Garden. Not quite my color but it was marked down from 5.99 to 2.00 per skein. So I am crocheting a scarf,

Row 1 sc in 2nd chain from hook, *chain 1, skip 1 chain, sc in next chain* continue until at end, end with a sc in last stitch and then chain 3 and turn
