I put the UT in front of the name because of the "burnt orange" color. :)
(Actually, we're watching the Texas vs. Kansas State men's basketball right now. Go Horns!) I love the "star" pattern created at the top of the beanie from the decreases.
The only thing I didn't like about the pattern is that the top was a little pointy as seen in the top photo... the picture is with a little stretching, too. Once it's on, it's fine and the hubby loves it! :)
I didn't do much knitting in 2009, but I've really hit the ground running in 2010. I'm currently working on the Corona Hoodie for myself... it's a little slow going because I'm S L O W at knitting. There's 5" of ribbing and the picture shows ~3".
I also started the Colonnade Shawl from Knitty last night for a gift to my aunt. If this shawl goes well I'll be making another one for another aunt... both for their birthdays next month. Hehehe... no WIP picture for this one.
I think I'm a little burned out from sewing. I've a few sewing projects that I need to finish, but it's just staring at me on my desk. I'm feeling very "eh" about them... I didn't think this day would ever come! Hopefully, it won't last too long. :)
