Sniffles day 3

I'm still sniffley and have the attention span of a gnat. Nonetheless, I manged to finish a couple of projects. First, the alpaca scarf:

I used not quite two skeins. I could have finished the second skein, but it was long enough, and I want to wear it. Katie really likes this yarn, so I may make her a toy out of the leftovers.

Second, a baby hat for a co-worker who is expecting.

It's made from Velvet Spun, using the pattern that was on the ball band. It's just a basic rolled-brim hat, scaled to baby size with fat yarn. I don't know if the knot on the top is supposed to look like an umbilical cord, but it does.

I'd write more, but the only other activity that I spent much time on this weekend was blowing my nose.
