Two FO's: Stranded hat and "Woven-stitch" skinny scarf. :D
Hi there! I'm including pictures of my first "stranded" project -- a warm hat with a pom-pom (I'm not sure if it's fair isle or not...does "fair isle" refer to a specific type of pattern?).

Secondly...also posting pictures of the "woven-stitch" skinny scarf. The fringe really frayed in the washing machine...I will probably hand-wash the next one, lol. This was my first time knitting with cotton (it's a cotton blend, actually). I absolutely love how this pattern looks. :D

Thanks so much! :D

The hat was VERY easy and you can find the free pattern here: http://slumberland.org/patterns/madison-hat.pdf

The scarf was also very easy and consisted only of knit, purl and slip stitches -- no stranding at all. That is also a free pattern (from DIYnetwork.com); you can find it here: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_kni...520116,00.html

Thanks again for the comments.

that's your *first* stranding? It looks GREAT! And the scarf is beautiful...I feel so inadequate now. :(

Bethany, don't feel inadequate, lol. I got the general idea of stranding on a flat swatch and it didn't look very impressive (lol), but when I did it in the round for the hat, it was MUCH easier. AND, I only hold one strand of yarn at a time -- I don't pick AND throw to do it. This way just seemed simpler and it worked for me! :D
