FO: lace cap

lace hat, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

I finished the lace cap from knitty summer '03. I love it! I chose a single strand of teal bamboo and I have enough left over for another hat, at least. And it's warm enough here that I could wear it today with a new dress I bought a few weeks ago. Yay Spring!

And I got an email today from my secret pal! Exciting! She's in France, which means that maybe I'll get to see some interesting yarns and things that we don't always get on this side of the ocean! Maybe I'll even get to practice my (very rusty) French, too!

And I went to my fav LYS today and got the rest of the bonsai that I'll need to make bonsai tunic in the new interweaves, and I picked up some things for the first package for my secret pal! Unfortunately, there was a bit of a snafu with the vest for the oscbf, so I had to frog the hood and start over. My plan is to finish that up sometime soon, hopefully, and then cast on some summer projects! :D

Edit: here's a picture from the top... do you know how incredibly hard it is to take a picture of the top of your own head?!

Wow, beautiful. Was there crocheting involved?

nope, no crocheting at all!
