With temperatures promising to return to seasonal, my thoughts roam to keeping my head warm. The Lace-leaf Hat (pictured) by sophytodonnell is one such sweet wee garment. Knit it with wool for the cold times, and as she mentions on the pattern page, cotton for the summer times!
Another purty hat is her Herringbone Tweed Hat. I'm always a fan of herringbone, and it's put rather to good use in this pattern. With winds that whip like they do this morning, I'm sure I'd really appreciate the extra warmth provided by the fair isle patterning.
Her most recent piece, the Garden of Silk Socks, are a clever wee design that utilizes a lace leaf design to create one of the most pretty and useful stash busting projects I've ever seen. Though these cute socks aren't available as a pattern, I hope I can encourage sophytodonnell to give up some precious knitting time and write one up!
