i have knitted more ez projects this weekend. i finally made a february cardigan for alba in green filatura di crosa: zara and a pillbox hat of the same wool with mulberry birds on from the opinionated knitter. i guess had i not been ill i would have been working on a saddle shoulder aran inspired by brooklyn tweed and elliphantom now, but i did have a chance to go to my lys so i had to use my stash. the february sweater is great fun. i am not sure about the colour which is a kind of granny smith apple green but i love the fit. the hat is a keeper. but next time i think i will make one in cotton that the little girl can use in the summer. i am taken with elizabeth's many ideas for hats.
' tina omme i london' has posted about a garter stitch bonnet a while ago. reading in the opinionated knitter (p. 104) i am finally able to understand how elizabeth got the idea for the bsj. from what i understand it was exactly this little hat that inspired her to do the bsj. i think it is great fun because i have certainly wondered how she figured out to make this ingenious pattern.
ps: the pictures disappeared. the little girl got her february cardi and the pillbox hat today. the mother who is a firm believer in tomtens and bsjs was taken with the sweater. and the fit is just so nice on a baby. brava elizabeth.
