Pickin’ tomatoes

Yes I have two tomatoes. These are the only homegrown tomatoes I’ll have this summer. These are the 2nd and 3rd tomato hats I’ve made. One is for a co-worker’s new baby and the other is for a co-worker who wants to give it as a baby gift. They are so easy and quick to knit up. This is the Ann Norling pattern of fruit hats. I used Classic Elite Skye Tweed in tartan red and spruce green. I used size 6 Knit Picks Options needles with a 47″ cable so the entire hat was knit magic loop style. I am NOT a DPN fan so magic loop makes knitting the stem a breeze.

I wound these skeins this morning. They are destined to become a Lucy Bag. That pattern is from the Two Old Bags line. I saw a picture of a bag someone had knit using different colors and I knew immediately I had to knit one. These are the colors I’ve selected but I have a nagging feeling I need some lime green. What do you think? Oh, this is the always reliable Cascade 220. Great felting wool.

This is Lexi. She was sitting on her rug patiently waiting for me to finish “playing” with the yarn. I tried to get her to pose for the picture. This is what she offered:

Hope you have a great weekend and that you find some time to knit!
