Blue Dock

End of the Blue month. Look at the little blue building way out there. Love the blue sky! This is a dock at Calabash, North Carolina, right outside where we went to eat that night.

Plum Hat

I finished the plum hat. It is as cute as any hat I have ever made. Actually, I've never made a baby hat before, but this one sure is cute. Look at the top -- don't you love those leaves?

The pictures aren't that great. I finished it late at night, and needed to wrap it, so the color is off and the photos are kind of blurry. But take my word for it -- it's cute.

The yarn photo is a better representation of color, since it was taken outside

Yarn -- Plymouth Yarn Dreambaby DK in purple (112) and green (111). I used more than half of the purple skein, and not much of the green skein.

Needles -- Size six double pointed aluminum.

This hat is for a little baby girl due in July (?) to Niccole and Mark. May the Lord bless her and keep her.

Baby hats and Boat bag

While at the beach, we went to Pawley's Island, and I went into Island Knits. I really like this store.

While there, I picked up, of course, some yarn. I received a shower invitation, and thought baby hats might be fun to knit.

I bought Dreambaby DK from Plymouth Yarn -- so soft, I can't describe it, and washable. I bought a purple and kelly green (112 and 111) for a plum hat, and a pink/green/blue (202) plus a pink (119). The pattern is by Ann Norling -- fruit cap pattern.

While at the beach, I bought a new bag -- for knitting, of course.

Kind of fits with Blue month, doesn't it?

Blue moon

Blue moon, anyone? Actually, it wasn't technically a blue moon, but it was a moon at dusk, and my camera kind of turned the whole thing blue.

Can you tell we are at the beach?

Thought it fit in well with this month.

DNA scarf started

Why do I do this? Why do I start another project when I already have so many on the needles? I've started the DNA scarf -- free pattern here.

The pattern calls for a yarn I've never heard of, and neither had The Stitche Niche, so I went with Plymouth Yarn Encore D.K. in color 256. It's kind of a creamy color. It is also washable, which is probably a good idea in this instance.

I'm making it as a Holiday gift for my boss -- washable will work best, trust me.

The pattern calls for size 4 needles, but since my yarn is probably a little thicker than the one specified, so I'm going with US size 5. Notice that they are Lantern Moon needles -- love them.

Maybe I'll finish it by the Neutral month -- hopefully I'll finish it by December.

Blue bag

Blue is my favorite color. I don't know what it is about blue that appeals to me, but I love it. Happy to be in the month of Blue.

I have a blue project going -- it's a purse based on the Fibertrends pattern called Fabulous felt totes. I've shown you the yarn before -- here. The color of the yarn is probably best seen in the picture in this post, not the one in the basket.

Both the yarn and the pattern came from The Stitch Niche in Lexington.
