Hats? why so many?

here they are, in all their glory, the four projects I finished this week. The blue and green with flaps counts as a COMPLETED unfinished object-one more pair of size 7 needles available for future projects. The blue and purple baby hat is for little Savannah, whom is sadly allergic to wool and could not have the pink and white baby beret, that was gladly gifted over to little Adrianna whom does not suffer wool allergies. The brown green and blue billed hat is an experiment in billed baby hats, soon to be placed on the as-yet-unborn head of my next nephew, debuting any day now!

Fancy Image Yarn

I need to rave-I just washed my Odessa hat for what may have been the hundreth time, and it still looks fantastic. I haven't had it that long, so you may ask why it gets washed so often. I wear it all the time, because we all secretly love receiving compliments on things we've made, and this particular hat takes the cake. It's the colors. It was the perfect pattern to show off the color changes. It makes my enormous head look smaller (that may be exaggerating). In any case, for everyone that lives in Washington and occasionally ventures on Highway 101, you should stop in Shelton and visit Myra. Chances are, she's in the store. You can actually talk to her! The store is tiny, but the perfect size for showing off all that fantastic yarn. The selection of other yarn brands is small, but there is enough Fancy Image to keep your idea wheels spinning and the colors, beware the colors, you will want one of every skein!
If you are on ravelry, peek at my notebook-there is lots of Fancy Image yarn in there!!!
