Hats.. Hats !!!

I started this Hat a few days ago.... Its a Fiber Trends Floppy like Hat...It was coming out so big that I was wondering if it would eventually knit down to a smaller size?? Well... I finished the whole brim and started the Head part and still it is BIG.. I mean ..The brim is Really Floppy...So I am thinking that maybe I need to do this in a Cotton Yarn as is suggested.. It seems that it needs to knit to a gauge that is very Firm... Well I wanted this hat to match the bolero sweater that I made a few weeks ago.. Its down a few posts... And I need that hat for Saturday Soooooooooooooooooooo I decided to Frog this one and start a different hat for the sweater.....
Now My Daughter says today that Sami NEEDS a Floppy Hat .. Guess I'll try it again in cottn next week and see how it works out this time!!

This is The Hat I am working on now and it is going pretty fast.. I should be finished with it tonight which makes me very Happy!!!! I already have the next project lined up and I am itching to start it... You know how it is with us projectaholics!!!! I just HAVE to have another one .... :)

Lacy Grey

This is a Lacy Trimmed cotton Sweater for Samantha... It is about a size 18 months..
I used Phildar Licorne yarn which I picked up at My Yarn Shop.....
It tool EXACTLY three skeins of it ... This is the first time I knitted something and only had 2 inches of yarn left.. Boy..That was cutting it close!!!! I still have to block the lace edges.. You can't really see the buttins but they are really cute vintage ones that I had in my Button Stash for years...
The Pattern was fromThe Yarn Shop but I think it is a Classic Elite Pattern.

A Bolero from Knitting Pure & Simple Pattern #275
I used Vannas Choice yarn in a Sea Mist and I really love the way the yarn feels....I think it would be a good choice of a worsted weight yarn even for some YARN SNOBS ........ :)

CPH Finished

Finished the CPH... Its small for me but then thats because its for my 13 Year Old GD... :)
I did the size 34 and I would say it came out to be a Small or X Small ??? I will know better when My GD tried it on... I have to send it to her in Buffalo!!! First I have to go find some buttons.. I left my Bigger Stash of Buttons in Florida so I'll have to go Button Shopping... Well.. Its a good excuse to go to JoAnns, etc!!!
The color is actually a Darker Green but the sun I guess is making it look lighter.
Thats one UFO off my list!
