Last September I took a two-color knitting class with Trudi, who writes Knit Madness. The class project was a simple headband or hat. I thought it wouldn't fit anyone I knew and would just stand as a monument to my learning experience, but I decided to finish it off as a hat and guess who it fit?

Spike! I know this is not the best shot for showing off my colorwork, but it will have to do for now. Spike is starting to outgrow the hat so I'll have to make him a new one for the chilly time between now and May. I really enjoy stranded knitting; I hope that after all this time I can remember how to do it. I even got a copy of Folk Knitting in Estonia for Christmas!
I cleaned up the finished objects section of the sidebar the other day, and I realized that some of my finished objects from 2007 were listed but not blogged about. Now we're in for it.
