Finishing frenzy

Something about being stuck inside that makes me want to finish stuff.  Maybe it’s knowing there’s no distraction and no escape.  So yesterday and today I finished two very small projects that I should probably have finished weeks – maybe even months – ago.

First is Capucine.  This adorable little hat takes its name, I believe, from a gorgeous French actress.  C’est très chic, n’est-ce pas?

 It’s a free pattern that takes one skein of Nadeshiko and about 5 minutes to knit. I’m in love with it because it’s totally adorable, and it will keep my ears warm and not give me hat head, which is a major issue in the winter – especially for my daughters at college.  I hope they like it hat because I’m planning on knitting one for each of them.

Next is Saroyan.  This is such a lovely little wrap.  The leaf pattern has always appealed to me, and the yarn is just scrumptious.  Soft and matte, Manos Maxima works up so quickly in this pattern – size 10 needles, for pete’s sake.  Still needs a good hard blocking but here it is.
