Despite our recent spring-like weather, I've been working on a hat with a pattern I got from a knitting friend. The pattern turned out to be free, and I even had some appropriate yarn. I decided to try to convert the pattern which was for a slouchie hat and make just a "normal" one. And here it is! Boy, does bulky yarn ever knit up quickly!

Another Hat and a Few Flowers

I have been working on some WIPs lately and finally finished these mitts, one of which was completed in the last century. Sigh, and now I know why: after finishing that one, I decided it was enough. This pattern is probably the most difficult one I've ever done. However, I have enough beads to do it again, but not for a while, that's for sure. Besides, I have more WIPs to attend to. Are you surprised?

More Photos from the Cross Kirkland Trail
This morning we woke up to snow which was a surprise. My newly planted primroses are not happy!
Yesterday though we went back to the Cross Kirkland Corridor to take some before and after photos of the metal sculptures.
Here's a much different view of the bird on my earlier post. What you see, is where you are!

The Last Hat of January!
Done! I finished this hat yesterday evening using one of my favorite patterns and will probably donate it to charity. I need more practice making pom poms though! (That yarn color is called "Beethoven Fancy" which I thought was kind of different.) This makes 11 finishes for January; now to get going on some of those WIPs!

Another Finish and Some Nice Walks
Just yesterday the sun was shining, so we walked up a nearby hill for some nice views of the University District and also downtown Bellevue which isn't far from our neighborhood.

A View of the Olympic Mountains!
The other day on our walk when it wasn't raining like it was today, we got a great picture of Seattle. It shows the Smith tower on the far left and the Space needle on the far right which were once the tallest structures in town. Supposedly the pointed top was added to the Smith tower so that it could be taller than the Space Needle. Now there are lots of tall building including the black one which now stands above everything else, at least for now!
Have a nice weekend!
