Another hat Trinity by Wooly Wormhead, guess who has her new book Going Straight

I have also made the Big Basin Socks:

and Fetching Gloves:

I have so far got two hats and a pair of fingerless gloves out of 200gms of Marble DK with 50 gms left.

I have been so caught up in so many KALs I am afraid my blogging has lost out, here are some of my recent projects:

Secret of the Stole II - Savannah, done in Handpainted Yarn

Marvelous Mittens 3 pairs!!, I was only going to make two pairs but I made two left hands, so rather than frog them out I made two more right hands.

Various hats for my daughter: Tete a Fetching and Strawberry Joe (wooly wormhead)

Clue 2 on Secret of the Stole

I have finished clue 2 on the Secret of the Stole, here it is in all its glory, I am using ColourMart Angora/Lambswool 2/28NM Lace Weight 2 strands.

I think the theme is either celestial or egyptian, the first designs look like scarabs to me.
