Baby hat and bootees

I made this lacy baby hat, then decided it needed bootees to go along with it.  I love Saartje's bootees pattern.  They were made in two evenings.

Color Whirl Vest

The Color Wheel Vest  is now finished as of  this afternoon!!!!!  I had to interrupt to make a baby hat for a new grandbaby at church.
I definitely need a new camera...the colors don't show up very well, but you all saw it Wednesday!!!

The pattern is from Love of Knitting, Fall 2011.  Thank you so much, Anna Marie!!!!

Summer Flies

Just finished this amazing shawlette!!!!  Only took 4 days of doing mostly nothing but knit, and my arms have the soreness to prove it!!!!
I love how quick it went (even with purl rows) and the different textures in it.
Summer Flies is free download on Ravelry. 

The ruffled edge has 396 stitches and is supposed to be stockinette.  With my "experience" I knew it would roll, so I made the last 5 rows garter, then the picot bind off.  That was fun!!!
