There's Knitting to Share...!

Remember that I was knitting a hat for Shanti's Mom's project? Well, I finished it:
I love my model, don't you?
and a side view...

And finally:
The close-up. Can I tell you how much I love this yarn?
Oh. Here are the details of it all:
Pattern: The Marson Watch Cap
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Wool (Superwash!) in BLACK
Needles: size 7 (I used Plymouth Bamboo circulars and Plymouth bamboo dpns as the cap got smaller and smaller at the top.

Notes: None. LOVE this pattern, love the yarn, love the needles. There's enough love here, that I might just have to dig in stash and see if I have enough yarn to make another hat. Because, I think our sailors on Shanti's ship deserve the very best.

Don't you?

Now...I'm also ready for tomorrow: heading back to work, like I haven't been working all weekend, right? Well, I'll also be stopping by the Post Office with these:
This isn't all I did this weekend, I have one very large order that is going to require a much bigger box than the post office provides...and I have to finish that order, too. Also there are boxes heading to the purchasers of a couple of my Quacker Factory sweaters (size 1X) that were sold on ebay this weekend...(yes, there are more, and yes I'd love to sell them).

I'm now heading off to bed, with this:
The best eye candy I can think of right now. My favorite? Some would think St. Brigid, and it's hard to say "no that's not it..." because all the years I thought if I ever got my hands on this book that would be the only sweater I'd want to knit.

But then I saw Eala Bhan. I wonder if a feminine, multi-mini buttonholed cardigan with flared hips and cables front, back, on shawl collar, and down the sleeves makes for a good first sweater.
(Probably not, but then, have you ever known me to do things by the easy route?)

Have a great week!

I suggest you go check out the Rainey Sisters blog for their versions of Eala Bahn. Seeing it in other colors may help you decide.

And I'm sure you could do it.

Great hat!

You got it! You got it!! AAAAAHHHHH!! I want it!

And now I need to go check out that pattern. In the end, here's what I have to say about hard first patterns: if you want it, you will knit it. :) (I know, no help at all!)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
