Knits in Rehearsal

The Dude by Andrea Rangel 

Auditioning Knits

Last week I had talked about making either Declan's Hat  or Astronomer for my nephew. 

But he vetoed both of those, so I'm making him the Quick Ribs Hat by Rachel Plafchan using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick  in the Barley color. 

Also auditioning Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman. I am making these for my mom and I'm still debating whether to use the Cherry Tree Hill Fingerpaints in Summer Sweet or Knit Picks Stroll Handpainted in the Wine Tonal color.
