for the love of wool

Does this ever happen to you, that you have to laugh about yourself? It sure is what I am doing right now!
I knew this was going to happen... I should have been working on Rudi's edge. My teacher-guru-mentor-hero-friend Cathy showed me a new-to-me technique, beading, and it was coming along nicely. The girlie was very approving, too!

But then there was Valentine's Day and the day after that I took a class with Cathy and started...well, I bet you guessed it - a heart!

I am still learning, so this was again an interesting process, seeing what the red checkered fabric would look like once it is hooked.

What will it be? It's a surprise for a certain girl in this household, who has a small collection of hearts. So, psssst! I will show you soon.

I have also been knitting. This has been a bit of a procrastinated project, that should have been done earlier since I will be teaching a class for it:

I have named it the Uber Earflap Hat, because it has such a nice fit that covers your head where it should and looks nice, too. I will teach this class at the Yarn Store at Nob Hill (here on Facebook) on Wednesday, Feb 29 from 11.00 to 1.30.
If you fell in love with the hat and cannot live without knitting it: I designed the hat and have the copyright for this pattern. It will be available for sale at the yarn store at Nob Hill after I have taught the class. You can also purchase it from me for $ 3.-, just pop me an email!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
