still knitting

I've had this homespun "art yarn" in my stash for a long time now, and not really a clue as to what to make with it! I loved the bonnet pattern I used to make my nephew's gift, so decided to try making one with this yarn for my little girl. It's her funky modern baby bonnet, and she loves it!






 It's especially useful for morning chores, visiting the chickens, gathering rocks, and things like that.   



Notice how it goes with everything and nothing at the same time.


I also used the leftovers for another pair of mittens. I think I'll sew a ribbon to connect these, so they don't get lost.


I'm tackling a sweater coat for baby as my next project. It will be very challenging for me, but I'm in such good knitting spirits lately that I think I'm up for it. My husband said it will probably take me a year to complete ;) Now that's a challenge if I ever heard one!
