Rainbow Marley

Pattern: Rainbow Marley in Little Bitty Hats The only change I made was to the curls on top: instead of using a long-tail cast on I used the backward loop or e-wrap cast on to make the curls more uniform, and it also gave me two ends to attach to the hat.
Designer: Susan B. Anderson
Yarn: Assorted knitpicks shine and other cotton yarns from stash. The first hat is a heavy worsted weight (some yarns doubled) and the second is more of a dk weight.

These hats were made for Colleen and Jenn, two friends who had babies about two weeks apart. I liked the first hat so much I decided to make another.

Baltic Braid Wristwarmers

Pattern: none, really. I made the first during a class at Stitches Midwest with Nancy Bush called "Baltic Braids and Bobbles", and made the second one that night.
Yarn: Valley Yarns Northampton
