Seriously, I thought it would be spring around here by now. We had a few nice days in Cincinnati but snow is in the forecast for tomorrow. The only proof that the grey cool days will end are the daffodils which started popping up. I plucked one of the first blooms from my mom's front yard to bring some hope inside.
Anyway, as for knitting I have finished a couple things lately.
First up is a hat. I knit it in a bamboo/wool blend yarn, and it came out way better than I expected. Orginally it was a bit longer but somehow this hat made its way into the washing machine and well, let's call it a beanie now shall we?

Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK

The pattern is called Anna Karenina, but I can think of a few things the stitch reminds me of more.
I'm going to knit another one (and keep it out of the washing machine), I'm deciding whether to make do with some stash or wait a while and buy a similar yarn. You know, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
I also finished a lacy scarf, knit from Rio de la Plata sock yarn. Apparently this company is out of business now? Anyway, blocking softened the yarn a bit. I think the scarf looks ok, but I think marled yarns aren't my thing, I'll try to remember not to buy any more.
