For my friend Beth, I took some pictures of her new bag. Isn't this cute? As of this posting it is not available yet but it will soon be at Knit Picks. Beth's got a great eye for colorwork, as you can see in all her pieces. (Just follow the link above to see more of her patterns.)
I swapped Beth pictures for yarn, and I made my mom a hat! My mom needs a hat that is "not too tight" because she doesn't want Hat Hair when she gets wherever she's going. Of course, even in the Colorado mountains it is mostly too warm these days for a hat, but you never know when a storm will blow in. Now she'll be set.
