More Crafty Goodness!!

What's a girl to do when she already has a few projects on the needles? Hey, cast-on for more. I wanted instant gratification so Sunday night I started and finished Crafty Pants' pattern Pretty Puffs Slouchy Hat. I didn't expect this hat to go so quickly. The yarn I used was Katia Azteca. I have to give a shout out to Jen for taking these pictures for me. Thanks Jen!!

This yarn is pretty nice. Jen said it reminded her of Berroco Peruvia. The only difference is that Peruvia is 100% Wool and Azteca is a wool acrylic blend. Some of you know I have wool allergies so I don't have too many choices when it comes to yarn. The sad part is that the stupid thing still scratches me. I'm thinking of sewing in a piece of ribbon tape or knit fabric on the part that touches my forehead so that it doesn't scratch me. Right now since I am wearing it, I move it away from my forehead when it starts bothering me.
Project #2 which I casted-on for Monday at lunch is the burnish tunic by Kat Coyle from Fall 08 issue of Knitscene. I don't have any pictures yet, but I already did the decreases for the waist shaping. This baby is a quick knit. I'm liking it so far.

Last night I casted-on for another project. It's the Tunic Dress by Anadiomena of MoreKnits. This is the cutest dress. My co-worker's gran daughter just turned 1 and I haven't made anything for her yet. I thought this dress would be cute. I'm hoping to have pictures by the end of the weekend to show my progress.
On Wednesday I finished the sample sock for my Sock Class I'm teaching on Sunday. I think it looks pretty good. I finished typing up the pattern yesterday, and took the picture last night.
What are your plans for the weekend? I'm singing at a wedding tomorrow, and you already know I have the sock class on Sunday?

I hope you all have a great weekend!!

I love the hat!! I've become a hat fan lately (for wearing), but haven't knit any in awhile. Have a great weekend!

Alas I cannot crochet but that is one cute hat. A lining at the brim might help the scratching. ~ksp
