Daffodil Hat Pattern

Made this in one day.  My first attempt at intarsia knitting.  The pattern is named Daffodil Hat (for little girls) but because I did it in pink, I'm calling it the tulip hat :)  Here is the website for the free pattern.   http://knithats.tripod.com/id9.html





 








Knitting Pure and Simple Baby Set #2910

Two night project. Pattern by one of my favorite pattern companies, Knitting Pure and Simple.
Can't remember what yarn I used. Maybe a Plymouth blend from my stash.

Winter Blues? I don't think so :)

Right after Christmas, the house is looking naked and blah. It's time to break out the paint.  Painted the family room last weekend and the kitchen this weekend.  Will post before and after pictures soon.  Still putting both rooms back together. This morning I reorganized the laundry closet (part of the kitchen).  Note to self:  Just say no to cookbooks!!
