Hiya. I have been knitting "secret" Christmas gifts lately, so not much to show. In the spirit of the season, I did get a little somethin' for myself...

Tuesday was the first Knit Night for my little group of knitters that I have spawned since living here in California. I'm so happy that they enjoy knitting enough to gather together and knit. We had a nice dinner and then we got out the sticks and string. I have a smallish couch... but we managed.During Knit Night, Eugenia worked on being loose, Elaine knit little yellow tubes, and Sarah finished her very first project! She knit her mom a scarf/blanket for Christmas out of Knitpicks Panache. It's such a warm cushy scarf! And you can wear it so many ways... :) Here Sarah models:
Yay for knitting. :) Great job Sarah! I can't wait till next Knit Night.
P.S. I'll try to write up a simple pattern for the Vintage Cloche while I knit myself one. But who knows when that will be... I have some Christmas knitting that will take precedence.

I'm no good at keeping secrets. So how cute is this hat I made my sister for Christmas???
Vintage ClocheI love it so much that I'm going to make myself one ASAP. It was so quick and simple. I love when designs in my head just work effortlessly on my needles. Yay! :)
Yarn: JoAnn's Sensations Dolcetto
Pattern: based on Witterings, but modified for gauge and details
