One of MamaCat's favorite things to do.

Two recently finished items. Another Old Man of Storr shawl and a Pimpelliese scarf. I saw the yarn on sale and could not resist, it has all my favorite colors in it and it knits very well too. I guess the colorway has been discontinued since it was on sale. It is Yarn Bee Snowflake Wool Blend in Caliope. I changed the pattern for the Pimpelliese a little to make sure I would not run out of yarn. Instead of continuing with the increases until I used half of the yarn I knitted four pattern units without increasing in the middle of the scarf.
It has been a couple of weeks since his birthday but between computer and camera troubles and all kinds of busy I did not get around to showing you this year's birthday hat and cake. The hat is the same pattern as last year - Fortnight by Jared Flood - only this year I did not mess it up. The cake is chocolate with fudge frosting.
