Finishing frenzy

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Something about being stuck inside that makes me want to finish stuff.  Maybe it's knowing there's no distraction and no escape.  So yesterday and today I finished two very small projects that I should probably have finished weeks - maybe even months - ago.

First is Capucine.  This adorable little hat takes its name, I believe, from a gorgeous French actress.  C'est très chic, n'est-ce pas?





 It's a free pattern that takes one skein of Nadeshiko and about 5 minutes to knit. I'm in love with it because it's totally adorable, and it will keep my ears warm and not give me hat head, which is a major issue in the winter - especially for my daughters at college.  I hope they like it hat because I'm planning on knitting one for each of them.

Next is Saroyan.  This is such a lovely little wrap.  The leaf pattern has always appealed to me, and the yarn is just scrumptious.  Soft and matte, Manos Maxima works up so quickly in this pattern - size 10 needles, for pete's sake.  Still needs a good hard blocking but here it is.
