Elvin Bride Nearing Completion

Sorry there has not been much blogging this month. I have been frantically knitting my Elvin Bride (of the green swatch) in hope fo finishing it by the end of the this month. Here is where I am as of this morning:

Posted by Picasa

Almost done! Somehow this project didn't get it's fair share of WIP posts, perhaps because it doesn't go together in an intuitive way and doesn't look like much most of the time.

Tufts baby hat

Along with the baby socks, I also made a matching baby hat:

Pattern: Baby Hat by Sandi Rosner
Pattern Source: Not Just Socks
Size: 6 months
Yarn: Mind's Eye Yarns Merino/Tencel
Yarn Supplier: Mind's Eye Yarns
Needles: US 2 / 2.75 mm
Modifications: skipped rolled stockinette edge and included a 2X2 rib at bottom of hat

Again, I do not like the rolled edge with ribbing,so I skipped it. The result is super cute though, and the garter rib is fabulous for hand dyed stripey yarn as it visually breaks up where exactly the color changes.
