School has been closed all week here because of ice and snow and unusually low temperatures. I was stuck at home without a project on the needles, so I dug into my stash and came up with enough leftovers to make a couple of quick projects:
The first pic is a hat for my soon-to-be 1 year old granddaughter. Pattern is Poppy and the yarn is Baruffa Merinos Otto in Dusky Rose. A quick, easy knit. I finished it in an afternoon and used the flower pattern from here to finish it: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flower-scarf-english
Second is Cozy cabled toque. I saw a North Face cabled hat on a woman at the coffee shop and looked for a pattern that resembled it. I didn't have any bulky yarn, so I used two slightly different shades of white Cascade 220 Superwash, held doubled. Also a very quick, easy knit.
