Finished Hats

I really want to get better at taking photo's of my finished works. So here are two of them that I snapped this morning.

I got some lovely yarn for Christmas from my Mum and Austin. The Fibre Company's Canopy Fingering.
I then used the yarn to create my first fair isle project En Blekksprut
This was not as hard as everyone may think it is. I really enjoyed it! Now I need to make mittens and a scarf to all match.

My second I have to say I was a bit slow to post. I made this hat two days before Christmas! WOW! It knits up super fast! I used some lovely Madelinetosh Worsted yarn that I got when Tom and I were in Portland. I enjoyed knitting with this yarn, wished I could have bought more.
Anyways, the hat was created by such an amazing designer! Jill Zielinski! Check out her hat the Smocked Slouch here
It's a great hat for a last minute knit!
