Just checking in!

I haven't gotten much knitting in lately but there are still a few projects on the needles. I have one Fiber Trends felted clog/slipper done for #1 son - the other is almost started. ;-) I'm using Cascade 220 wool for them.

I made the Baby Gnome hat for a 3 year old (One-Skein Wonders book edited by Judith Durant), that turned out big enough for my 12 and 15 year old sons. They have inherited it and I will try the hat again with a single strand. Here's a shot of the picture from the book - and one with a 15 year old wearing it. Another lesson in GAUGE!

The hat is knit in ella rae Amity yarn - a new to me yarn that seems to be very nice. My LYS just started carrying it and at less than $5 a ball for 200 yards I think I'm in love!
