A New Year ahead and lots of new babies....

I am so excited about my newest project - a pink cocoon.
Girly-Girl Pink, with coils, and over 500 beads!
This is extremely cute.

Handspun in single ply thick and thin and then plied with black thread with black and clear beads, and coils along the way. It goes from quite thin to quite bulky.

I am searching for the perfect rosette to adorn the neckline...

My Simple Introduction to Entrelac - Basket Weave Bonnets by Linda Maintanis

Entrelac. That difficult looking knit stitch that really isn't.

I searched Ravelry for a pattern to try and began with the Entrelac Beanie. The stitch was easy to pick up and after a few rounds I started to enjoy myself. As each round expanded the pattern it became addictive; each tier adding contrast to the prior.

Knit in the round these simple hats were a joy to create and an easy way to prime my new skill for the upcoming Entrelac Gloves!
