Took a short break from the sweater knitting (see last week's post) to knit three quick hats. This first one is made using the pattern Split-Brim Toddler Hat by Stranded Knitter. The avocado green yarn is Lion Brand Woolspun. The second yarn is Patons North America ColorWul.

This first project is a sweater I was knitting (no longer in progress). I almost had it finished when I frogged it. At the point this first photo was taken I was pleased with the project as the fit seemed good. The pattern is Gemini by Jane Richmond. The yarn is Rowan Creative Linen.
After finishing the body and the first sleeve I changed my mind. The fit no longer seemed good. The sweater body felt too boxy. The sleeve was way too wide. I decided to frog the project and use the yarn with a different pattern. I think I will use this one -- #14 Leaf Yoke Top by Angela Hahn.
This section has a tractor pulling a wagon full of apples, a robot, frogs, and a motorcycle.

This cardigan is sort of a shrug with a body attached. It is an easier knit than it appears. The pattern is Hitofude Cardigan by Hiroko Fukatsu. The yarn is Lotus (Trendsetter) Tibetan Cloud . The first photo is pre-blocking.

This blooming nine-patch quilt top is made with four different batik fabrics. It’s a king size top measuring 114.5 in square. I recently finished the quilt top and mailed it off to be machine quilted. When it comes back I will bind it using the brown fabric. The backing is the orange fabric.
