Beanies abound

It was an all head-gear sort of weekend. First up, the crochet. Beanie on left is "Lace Cap" by Kim Werker, beanie on right is "Solid DC Skully" by Sarah A. Both done in Lily Sugar 'n Cream yarn, with a size "H"(5mm) hook. Modeled by the always suave and debonair Duke of York, 5/16/10.

Now, on to the knitting. All three beanies are "Beanie & Cecil" by me, available in the right sidebar. Size 7 U.S. needles, Lily Sugar 'n Cream yarn. 5/14-15/10

And I received some gorgeous flowers from my daughter and son in law yesterday for Mother's Day. Thanks, you guys!

All in all, a pretty good week for fiber.
