FO: Pink Star Hat and Purple Lotus Hat
I'm a hat making fool! Two today - one for my swap partner and one for my neighbor who's having a birthday soon. She has that total "Ski bunny" kinda look, and loves pink so I'm pretty sure this is the perfect hat for her :oD





And my swap partner loves purple, lace and Malabrigo - so here's a purple Malabrigo Silky lace hat!!!





(At some point I need to find a better decrease for the colorwork hats... after all the trouble I went through to make sure the stripe didn't jog, the decreases made it do just that :o/ )

That is a totally cute hat, one I should bookmark for next winter as my DGD is into pink and purple.

From your pictures the decreases don't spoil the color line of the hat at all.

Which LYS in Portland is your favorite? When I travel to any of them, always seem to land up in Yarn Garden.

Thank so much!!! I guess it's the OCD part of me that wants the line to sit perfectly parallel to the bottom line (or the dance teacher in me lol!)

There's a fairly new yarn shop, which opened this last September and I am in love with everyone there, it's called Happy Knits and it's actually just down the street from Yarn Garden (another goody!). I think the timing of me looking for a LYS right after I started knitting in August and Happy Knits opening, plus meeting SO many wonderful people was just perfect. It's actually nowhere near where I live, yet I go at least twice a week :o)
