Just thought I'd enable, I mean share.

I have several projects waiting in my stash for me to get started on, so I thought I'd share a few of them with you. One of the things I finally did this summer was order some hat kits and an earwarmer kit from Bea Ellis. She has put together these great kits with patterns, two colors of wool yarn (your pick) and a matching cotton yarn for you to knit a liner all for under $20.00! They all have a Norwegian influence in the design because that's what Bea Ellis specializes in. Looking for Dale of Norway? She's got it! Check out her book list - there are some gems in there that I'll be picking up soon myself.

I had first seen these kits when Kary did one and thought they looked great, so I bookmarked the site and forgot about it. Well, last year I got an ear infection and had to wear a polar fleece earwarmer (we will not discuss my knitterly humiliation at this, but I needed my ears warm faster than I could knit). This summer, I realized I still hadn't done anything about the keeping the ears warm situation so I wandered over to her site and picked out a couple of kits. If you click here you can see her kits (or click on Bea's Originals from the home page). I picked up the Nordic Headband and the Kristen Hat for myself, and Caleb picked out The Skier hat for himself. What colors did we choose? Well, you'll have to wait until I start knitting them to find that out - but I did get in my new Knitpicks Harmony needles (the wood Options ones) and they are GORGEOUS! Really well finished and smooth with nice pointy points on them.

My Harmony Options needles are "in the mail." I'm glad to hear they are as wonderful as I had hoped.

Am I the only person who finds that she frequently has to tighten the Options needles?

I spent the weekend working on a Vogue Knitting pattern with my new Harmony Options. They are wonderful! I plan to get the sock sizes very soon.

I made the skier hat for my niece and her father. Well I made one first, asked my niece if she wanted those colors or option 2. She chose option two.

They are a fun knit and the instructions were very easy to follow.

I am knitting along on Hanami but now that it has been a little chilly, I am dreaming of sweaters and other winter stuff.
