So what's all this then?

Green hat: The Professional hat pattern by Emily Nelson, pattern:

I used green Bernat Ultrasoft cotton. Very nifty pattern!

The shawl is for my mom. I'm calling it the art shawl..because I modeled it after the weavings she did in college. I like it a lot, but I do wonder if it's possible to look good while modeling a far, no. I used US 17 needles and two colors of worsted weight yarn. Most of it's garter stitch but I did a yo, ktog section here and there. I like big needles..this only took me an evening and a morning.

The snail was inspired by Missa's spiral keychain.

It really is a lot better than big ol' chunky ones that leave imprints in your hip.

White lacy hat is based on a disco hat pattern from a library book, but then it sort of wandered off into whatever lacey-type thing I felt like doing. With a flower on it!

I used thin white cotton and a G hook.

The stripey scarf is just a long length of garter stitch but it's my favorite thing I've made in weeks! I am just in love with it!

As for Bobbles...WELL, let me tell YOU....if I hadn't been so excited to see how it turned out, I would have given up halfway through. Knitted bobbles are tricksy business. The only way to make it work is to knit your 5 stitches in one very very loosely. Whew. I'm going to knit some more stockinette, then make him into a pillow and put a stocking full of balsam pine needles in there. Very comforting.

I sound so dull on this blog! I really am an English major, I swear! I just tend to be somnambulistic when I post. And I'm not even sure that's a real word. And you never, ever start sentences with And....but this is a blog about needlework. Not grammar. So Diana Hacker can overlook it, I'm sure.
