FO - Blue Devil Beanie

I finished my Blue Devil Hat - pattern by Thea Coleman of Babycocktails.  I made it more fitted like a beanie than the slouch that the pattern called for.  I like fitted hats, and was ready to shape and cast off after one full repeat of the chart.   Love the yarn - Madeline Tosh DK - and the hat is perfect for the cold mornings of spring (or fall, but who's thinking that far ahead!).

On the Needles this spring

I'm finishing up some projects, starting some new ones.  I don't like knitting spring/summer things, as the season is so short here.  That said, I have a few things planned for when these are done:

A Blue Devil hat - pattern by Thea Coleman (Babycocktails) and yarn is Madeline Tosh DK.  Love the colour and the yarn is so smooth!

A Spiral Spun Waistcoat - my version of the Anna Vest, since I can't afford the book the pattern is in.  This one is a free pattern posted through the Victoria Albert Museum.  I'm knitting along with Karen at Fringe Association.

Still working on my Long Vest - it's been on the back burner as I finish other projects.  May plan to finish by fall...

A Lowlands hat by TinCanKnits to keep the 'gift box' filled.

I have two spring projects queued up - more on those soon!
