knitter's delight - cami's hat (and mike's too) & a giveaway!

it's done! cami's "pasha" hat is officially out and about! i knitted up the fabulous jane richmond's design in a soft bamboo silk blend in a medium grey color. this pattern was lots of fun to whip up, didn't take too long for lace knitting and the pattern was really easy to follow - in other words, i loved it! thanks jane! i think i need one for myself now...what about you? you like?

you can find more details about the project on my ravelry page and on another note doesn't my sissy look gorgeous? she is so photogenic, it makes me a wee bit jealous. she seriously does not take a bad picture. thanks for modelling the hat camille, you look gorgeous!!!

and now it's time for a giveaway! the lovely and talented jane has so nicely offered up any pattern from her store for a giveaway. all you have to do for your chance to win is visit her store "jane richmond" on etsy, pick your fave pattern (trust me, it will be hard to choose) and then leave a comment on this post stating your choice. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced next week - so stay tuned!!

if you would like to find more of jane's work you can read more about her on her blog and on her ravelry page - thanks jane, you rock!

and now for my brother in law's hat - thorpe! this was his belated xmas pressie. i love this hat and i have to say i am dying to make myself one but found the starting of this hat very tricky. if anyone has some tips on using double pointed needles and starting with 4 stitches in the round i could sure use them. this hat took me 2 hours just to get going, but i think it's worth it. it's super warm and cozy and my picky sis's hubby loved it! click here for the pattern and for more on the designer kirsten kapur check out her website here.

and the happy couple... happy bday camille! we hope you have a wonderful day! love you guys!
