2 more FO's!

I can't believe it, i finished up 2 projects on the first of the year. I can just tell that its going to be good year for knitting! *grin*

First up, My little brother Trevor's hat. He requested a hat with brim (from a baseball hat). I couldn't find a pattern for what I wanted so I made it up. I'm quite proud of the finished product, and was considering sending it in to knitty, but hadn't read the submission guidelines until it was too late. I wasn't allowed to post any pictures here or on Ravelry... Bummer! Oh well maybe I'll write up the pattern and post it here.

It fits very well and I really like it, except for the holes that were formed by the short row shaping. I did use smaller needles and yarn than called for, so maybe that wouldn't be so obvious with a thicker yarn. Either way I still like it and I'm going to knit mittens to match! I love being able to wear my handspun!

*Note my new coat! I've been wanting to get a new one for a few years now and found this one for 50% off!!! It is down and super warm! Love it!

I started the Ravelry group project 365ers yesterday. I'm going to be taking a picture a day for a year. So bear with me this year as it is going to be filled with pictures(not like it isn't already)!

So yesterday was Day 1. I'm starting the new year out with a yummy cup-o-coffee, in a new mug I was gifted from a friend! Love it so much!!!

Today would be Day 2. We went to the library and I really liked this shot of Chloe. Its never to early to start them with the love of books! She is getting so big, in a month she will be 1, I can't believe it. She has taken a few steps every day, she is up to 4 or 5 in a row. My little baby isn't so tiny anymore.

that's weird, why didn't they want you to post pix anywhere? I say write up the pattern and submit it to a magazine that will PAY you for it. or do it all nice and sell it in your shop and etsy.
looking good.

Yay for babies in the library! I've been at my library for over 10 years and it's fun to watch them grow up as they come in every week. I love your brimmed beanie. Way to go!

I cant believe she is going to be 1 so soon. It seems only a few months ago you had her (not 12). I love the hat, and the calorimetry looks great too.
