First, I wanted to show off this amazing yarn I bought from Twisted Fiber Art. It's an Evolution yarn that starts off in one color, then it evolves into something else entirely:
When I got my happy skein in the mail, I couldn't decide what pattern would best showcase the colors. I wound up turning it into a shawl:
The yarn was such a treat to work with! Watching the colors change kept me from getting too bored, plus it looks so great wrapped up as a scarf around my neck. I love the fall colors. :)
I also finished two hats for friends of mine! The first hat here is for my friend Tina whose birthday is in a few weeks. I love this hat because the decreases make a star! How cool is that?
And this hat (A hat For Eudora by Alex Tinsley) is for my friend Whitney. Back in January I made a Facebook post claiming to make a handmade gift at somepoint in 2011 for the first five people who signed up. This is the last of the Handmade in 2011 knits, just in time!
This pattern has a great hidden contrast hem that it kind of cool. :)
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving full of food, family, and knitting!
Happy knitting, everyone!
