Marshmellow Fluff



Charlotte's Baby Ruffle Hat

I made this baby ruffle hat for the granddaughter of a co-worker of mine. This was a really simple but fun pattern to knit, and only took a few hours. I have a lot of left over yarn so I am going to make a matching Baby Surprise Jacket also and hope that I have enough yarn to complete it. I used Bernat Baby Jacquards.

My boss is having a granddaughter in February (his first grandchild), so I think I may make this hat again, along with a matching Baby Surprise Jacket for him, too.

Cranberry Mocha

I can't believe I knit a whole sweater without mentioning it in my blog, so here's the scoop....

I just finished Cranberry Mocha and it is now patiently drying on the blocking board. The pattern is the Moch Cardi by Gudrun Johnson and it is extremely well written.

I used Lorna's Laces Swirl DK in the cranberry colorway and this has got to be one of the most beautiful colors ever.

I will post pictures of the completed sweater soon.........

I am still in the sweater mood so I am actually thinking about restarting this, although fair isle & I have not gotten along very well. This will be my 3rd attempt, and three time's a charm, right? I'm going to rip it out and start over.
