First Knitting show

Last Saturday I went to a knitting show in Milwaukee called Sheep in the City. It's a small show but it was interesting to see what was there. I bought these two skeins of yarn. The blue skein is sock yarn. The other one is Packer colors and I'm not sure what to make with this. Both are lace weight yarn so that limits what I can do.

Baby Hat

I have this friend who I really wanted to knit something for. She's having her 5th baby! They don't know the sex so it's hard to make something. I decided I wanted to make the baby a hat it can wear right away. Yes, it's almost March but baby's wear hats a lot. I have a dead line of March 14th to have it done and given to her. I hope I can do it. Otherwise it will have to wait till she comes home. I am using size 5 needles and the yarn is a thicker kind. I hope this works.

Mega Shawl project

I have decided to knit a shawl. But I have made sooooo many mistakes that I'm not sure I want to give it to anyone. I am on the 3rd skein and I think I will stop and not do 4. This is taking way to long. I want this done.
