Ribbon Hat

I am a member of the Itty Bitty Hats group on Ravelry. I decided to join a hat swap and that hat for this month was the Ribbon Hat. I tend to like things that are simple so this hat was a bit of a challenge for me, but I decided to join anyway. My hat is now done and I plan to knit up a surprise for my swap partner which I will post once I'm done with it.

I Won, I Won!

A couple of weeks ago I attended a Threads of Love meeting and the director told a story of a quilt that been made by some of the volunteers, sold at an auction, and bought buy her husband. She wanted to raffle the quilt to make money for her chapter. When I saw the quilt I was thoroughly impressed by the craftmanship of it and thought it to be very "Texan" with the boots and stars. I thought of how I would love to have it, but only bought a ticket to support the group.

Today was the 5th birthday party of this Threads of Love chapter and guess who won the quilt? I couldn't believe it. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but I am happy to have it indeed.

My Clapotis is Done

Earlier I wrote a post on my latest knitting project, the clapotis. After knitting it halfway through and ripping it out, I finally finished it. I went to a graduation party last night and several of the ladies there fell in love with it. One in particular wore it until it was time for me to go. As I was walking out to my car, I was impressed to give it to her. So I'll be packing it up in a nice little bag and presenting it to her at church this weekend.

The first picture is what the colors actually look like. I guess the lights from the kitchen table flushed out the colors in the second.

I've already purchased to yarn to knit my next one so maybe I'll get to keep that one. :)
