Chicago is all a-buzz

I don't really care that much, if at all, but as a Chicagoan I feel compelled to say,

"G O . B E A R S ! !"

Earrings for Eve

I have temporarily diverted from knitting to make some jewelry. I'm thinking of posting some for sale on In the meantime, this pair was especially made for my cousin, who does not have pierced ears.

Not the best photo, but you get the idea.

Welcome to 2007.

Well, here are the promised photos of hats. And more than just getting around to taking the pictures, I also worked in all the ends so they are all completely finished.

The Red & Blue Hat

Next on the hit parade is the aptly named Star Top Hat

This is the promised Blue Hat. I had fun with the patterns, the swirls are just knits and purls, but the illusion is neat.

I liked the multi-colored yarn, so I knit a another hat.

And here is a group photo of the four Dulaan hats and one for me.

There, that task is done.

Over the holiday weekend, I went to the local bead store and with the ones that I bought and the beads in my stash, I made a bunch of earrings, a pin and some pendants. But that is for another photo session.
