I tried a different pattern for the hats for the cancer center. I like it, it is easy and knits up quickly. Both hats are done in a soft cotton yarn. The colors are not as pale as they look in the picture.

I liked the pattern so much I made another one. Yarn is Knitpicks Stroll Handpainted again, the colorway is Hayride. In both shawls I knitted stockinette stitch between the mesh parts instead of garter stitch because my garter stitch turned out a little tight and made the shawl look wonky.

This is one of four knitting projects I finished recently. They are all done in thin wool yarns and need to be blocked. The pattern for this shawl is Reyna and it can be found on Ravelry. The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Handpainted, colorway Tree Fort. It is soft and squishy and lovely to work with.
