Lightweight Yet Cozy

I love this Simple Pleasures Hat. It is very lightweight, but is so soft and warm without the bulk of a wool knit hat. I also love the slouchy look.

Simple Pleasures Hat

I started this Simple Pleasures Hat last weekend. I'm using Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Lace and Rowan Kidsilk Haze. All that ribbing gets turned up into a cuff. I'm hoping it's really warm because the last few days here have been freezing! Brrr!

Autumn Equinox Vest is Done!

I finished sewing in the zipper last night. I was going to use my machine, but I thought I would have more control if I hand sewed it in. I'm still debating whether or not to add some sort of tape or binding to hide those hand stitches. I love this vest! It's cozy and adds just the right amount of extra warmth. The pattern was easy to follow and I made no modifications to it. I'll get a lot of wear out of this garment this winter.
