So here, in true Hollywood style, is a montage.
All little things as you can see, some for friends, some for charity, some for swaps and even some for me! I have also been doing some top-secret knitting that I will reveal at a later date that has been keeping me busy.
There are a few WIPs on the go too. I am making the 103-1 Jacket in Eskimo or Silke-Alpaca with A-shape in Bendigo Mystique 16ply. Catchy name huh? I call it Eskimo Joe. It is a quickish knit that I have had on the go for a bit but life and other projects kept getting in the way (big sigh), ain't it always the way?
I am also still slogging away at my seedy socks in Artyarns Merino. I have one finished and I am up to the foot of the second. They are my travel project so they get neglected for long periods of time and pulled out in waiting rooms and kid's swimming lessons. They are lovely though...

This was how she was wearing this nicely constructed Slouchy Copy Cat Hat. Note that she has it sitting practically on her eyebrows and she looks just a little like she might be about to steal your video player.
Now this is how she should be wearing this lovely hat.
Note that it sits further back on the head, at about ear level and as a result she looks jaunty and cosmopolitan!
Let this be a lesson! There is an art to hat wearing and it definitely isn't this.....
