How did it get to be May already? Yow!

But if it’s May, it must be time to start thinking about gearing up for the Ingeborg knit-along. Official start date for this project is May 15th, and I do really think I’m going to wait til then, or there-abouts to start. Some people have already started Borging and I am showing remarkable restraint by sticking to my original start date, I think.

Besides, I’m having oodles of fun knitting quickie summer projects.

For example, here’s a little bucket hat I whipped up on Saturday, from Trendsetter Taos, a cotton blend yarn.

Also, I finished Haiti on Saturday.

And I gotta say: as big a pain as it was to knit, it was an even bigger pain to crochet the edging around the neck and armholes. Still, I’m very happy with the finished product.

I did a bit of work on Tina as well. Here’s the back:

I’ve started on the front. But I want to save that for commuter knitting, so I started another Not-Colinette poncho. Here are the yarns:

Starting at the top left, going clockwise, the yarns are:

Gedifra Distrato, subbing for Isis
Classic Elite LaGran, subbing for Mohair
Crystal Palace Musique, subbing for Prism
Manos, subbing for Skye
Lana Grossa Viale, subbing for Wigwam
Crystal Palace Trio, subbing for Zanziba

And there you have it! I’ll post a pic of the poncho in progress tomorrow.
