No project photos today. Still working on my Cubist Socks and 20 Flowers, but no real progress to show since the last time. The rainbow above was taken the other week as the morning sun tried to break through the dark rain clouds. The sky looked very similar this morning except for the rainbow. Out one window, it looks like we're in for a downpour and out another window, fluffy white clouds are floating in a blue sky...
Lucky you live Hawaii.

I worked on more hats for hospice. The hat on the left is a modified Amanda Hat. Modified, because the partial skein of Lion Wool turned out to be way less than I thought. The hat on the right has also been shortened because the partial skein of acrylic that I was working with also contained less than I thought. It's been moved to waste yarn until I can figure out what to do with it. I really need to invest in a scale...
Moving along with the partial skein theme. This is the Fountain Hat from the Knitting Daily website. I'm using some left over acrylic yarn from a baby afghan. I'm not sure if the lace pattern will show up since acrylic doesn't block, but we're stash busting...
Speaking of stash busting, I am making a dent in the stash of acrylics that has been packed away. Since these hats are going to hospice, the "washable" factor is appreciated. I've hit a bunch of pastels that were meant for baby blankets and I probably will be switching to crocheting lap blankets with them. Not as portable as a hat, but I am sure will be just as appreciated by the recipent.
