Fiber love transends all species

The cool thing about knitting the Celtic Harbor Hat is that I accomplished one of my 2007 knitting goals: learn to knit a fair isle project. Ok, ok... so I cheated a little. I'm still having tension issues with yarn held in the left hand, so I did a little two-color right-handed knitting... It all seemed to work out in the end. (There are a few fair-isle projects I'd like to tackle this year, including these gorgeous mittens!)

Here's how the top portion of the hat turned out (pre-blocking). I should have quit one row before I did to avoid the slight nubbin action, but it flattens down upon wearing.

Even though Toby refused to model the finished hat, he wanted to let you all know that he most certanly played a part in the project.

Okay - cutest puppy shot I've seen all week.

I just read your comment on my post about the preemie hats. I don't think we've met. I joined the MN Knitters blog ring and I've "met" some bloggers through the "Internets" . I volunteered to knit some hats because I had yarn ends that needed to be used and I couldn't think of a better way to do it!
