Another Rikke hat, but brown this time.
These handmade coasters in mass quantities.
This pullover. Finally. It's been in my Ravelry queue forever.
And this cardigan.
Second, this Rikke hat is by far my favorite hat. I like it because it's slouchy and lightweight, as opposed to some of my chunkier beanies, which means it does less damage to my hair (as in 'hat hair'). Also, I can hear people talk when I wear it over my ears. You wouldn't think that'd be a consideration, but it is.
And third, I'm hoping to make my first wearable pullover and cardigan this month. Some of you may remember my lace striped sweater, which is technically my first pullover, but that was made with super itchy wool, and I'll probably never wear it. I have a bad habit of testing projects out on yarn I don't like just in case they don't turn out. Problem is, most things usually turn out better than I think they will, so the project ends up being a colossal waste of time and materials.
Anyway, I'm usually more of a cardigan person than a pullover person, but Jane Richmond's Oatmeal Pullover has been in my queue for ages (and ages and ages), so it's first on my list of big projects. I'm hoping its simplicity will give me the confidence boost I need to start in on the cardigan. If not, I'll just go back to knitting more socks. One can never have too many pairs of wool socks.
