Peek A Boo Cloche Hat

I have wanted to knit this hat since I got the book, so I finally cast on and got going.
It took me about two weeks to do, as I found it really confusing figuring out how to turn the hat over and knit the lace layer.

I eventually got there though, and here is the finished product!

Yarn used: 1 red and 1 yellow skein of Reynolds Soft Sea Wool.

Happy to Be Here Knitting Lace!

I have just joined this KAL and have cast on for my first project from Lace Style (although I doubt it will be my last).
I had four skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in Fuschia, they had been destined for a scarf but I decided I'd done enough scarves for awhile, so...I went on Ravelry and saw that several people had used this yarn for the Retro Redux Shrug. I immediately cast on, and I love the pattern and the way the shaping is done through different needle sizes--it's a great way to try out my knew KnitPicks Options needle set!

The Shrug is a bit on hold now, as I try to complete a few holiday projects and a warm scarf for my husband as the chill sets in!
