My daughter was looking for a slouchy hat and we came upon some patterns I wanted to try.  I selected Autumn by Jane Richmond.  It is a super-quick knit, made of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick.  Talk about fast – one day!  I added a few extra inches for a bit more slouch.  It has a sophisticated look that I think a younger person can pull off.  I thought it had potential for me, but I’m not sure….

Working with such thick yarn must be my antidote for the upcoming Lace Knit – A – Long sponsored by Kate.  I’m excited about it, but still unsure what I’m going to knit.  I’ve ventured into lace only a few times.  I guess my Cece qualifies as lace.

And my feather and fan stole.

One of the ideas I am thinking about is the Katharine Hepburn Cardigan.  I have some cotton yarn that is the right weight.  I think I’d make the short one for one of my girls.

Since I have Whimsical Little Knits 2, I could make the Scroll Lace Scarf.

What do you think?  Any suggestions?  You know, I’m almost as cute as Ysolda…
