WIP Wednesday: Hat Tricks

I started two new hats in the last week! I needed another worsted weight project on the needles, so I started the  Thistle hat, a free pattern by Liz Abinante using this uncharacteristically bright (for me) skein of Preciosa from Knit Picks.
I also decided to test the waters of fingering weight yarn knitting with a wee chevron hat on some funky US 2.5 bent DPNs. I'm using up both stash yarn and scrap yarn with this one, which always feels good!
Also made some huge progress on the baby sweater, and I'm so glad that my crazy idea for modifying this pattern for contrasting button bands and cuffs appears to be working. I'm just two sleeve cuffs and many yarn ends away (not to mention buttons) from calling this first one done!
The only thing I haven't gotten much done on is my travel knitting project, the bright green socks I've been knitting since mid-April. But, I am still spinning for the Tour de Fleece, slowly but surely - I am maybe a third of the way through the first single of this Louet Merino:
Thanks for stopping by, see you back here for FO Friday!
