Beanie hat...

...is finished and it didn't take me as long as I thought it would. Well, that's because I haven't been at the dye pot lately. I've been kind of lazy this summer; but I'm looking forward to fall and winter, yes even winter. I can't believe I'm really saying that. I am excited because I'll be preparing for two fiber shows, so I'll need to get busy pretty soon. The first show is The Upper Midwest Alpacas Fiber Fest on November 6th in Hopkins, Minnesota. It will be my second show, but first show to do alone, the first was this past May, Shepherd's Harvest and I shared a booth with a friend. Needless to say I'm excited! In April, the 30th to be exact is the next show, I'm not certain that I'll get in, I will find out in January, so I'm praying that it all works out!  It is Yarnover held in the Twin Cities and I hear it's a grand event not to be missed!

I got a little side tracked didn't I...back to the little hat I made. It was such a nice easy knit and very portable, since also on the needles is a sweater; I'm working on the sleeves and it's just too big to stick in my purse anymore. I also tend to get kind of antsy when knitting a long project (I've been working on this sweater since last July), so in the mean time I've knitted a pair of socks and this beanie hat. I like to finish something once in a while, it gives me some satisfaction anyway. I will have the sweater done soon, in time for the cooler weather; I can't wait to wear it, my very first sweater for myself! I'll post about it and show photos when it's done.

Here's more info about my hat and the pattern.
