Fibers on Friday: Rainbow Sherbert Hat

Welcome to Fibers on Friday, a party dedicated to knitting and crocheting or anything yarn related!



A whole week since posting! I'm sorry I did not comment on any of the links from last Friday, as I mentioned last week, we were off to our second annual ski trip with some good friends. It was a blast! We are all still in one piece and can't wait to go back. My kids enjoyed their first lessons:


Check out this ice sculpture!

I did not get as much relaxing knitting done after our days on the slopes as I had anticipated. I was just too beat down tired! All I could muster was a nice cold beverage and food:


But, I did complete Madison's hat which I call the Rainbow Sherbert hat. Look at these beautiful colors....oh! I love this yarn! Here it is on Ravelry.


Now I only have one project on needles; the Shalom cardigan. I will finish this before I start anything else (I think). Originally I had planned on making this a long sleeved sweater, but when I got to the point of dividing for the arm holes, I had to make a decision. It looks right now as though we'll be moving to Florida this summer, so I decided a short sleeved sweater might get more use during the cooler winter months down south. So, I'm sticking with the original pattern exactly.

  7. Looks like a great time away! I love the ice sculpture. The hat is adorable. Perfect yarn for that pattern. Your sweater will be delicious and short or long arms, it will be great.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  15. That rainbow yarn is a complete dream! It knit up beautifully, and those diagonal lines look awesome. (And that ice-throne is amazing! ...Much as I never want to see ice again, after this winter...)

    Florida winters ... I was in P-cola in the winter of 91 - 92, and it was really cold in the mornings. By noon it was 80, though :-)
