|the wife and her hat at stanley park|
the yarn: rowan denim
i did try to get my girls in a photo together, wearing their twin hats. it just did not happen.

i also recently knit a hat for our very sweet friend and neighbour. apparently, he has a love of toques. and so i knit him one to match one of his jackets.
yarn: spud and chloe sweater,
striped with sweet georgia superwash worsted
as you may have noticed, i'm a fan of knitting the same pattern over and over again. for one thing, there's really nothing better than a really simple, classic, wearable design. for another, they are a comfort to knit. living with toddlers and working through the very busy routine of being a working mother, i have to be able to put a project down at a moment's notice. comfort knitting the same patterns again and again, helps me do that without wanting to tear my hair out.
i know. i do like to babble about the knitting.
in the mean time, let's have another shot of the girl-in-her-hat, this time with her brother, where they are both practicing the fine art of re-merchandising. right.
and here are my first ever pair of socks for me, which i believe also qualifies in "the blues" category.

yarn: misti alpaca hand paint socks yarn
i officially declare myself officially addicted to making socks. i've just finished my third pair and have already cast on for another.
crazy. i know. thank goodness i've amassed enough sock yarn in my stash to make a few more. and then i'll have to stop for lack of yarn. :)
