I finished my first berry hat (to me it sort of reminds me of an eggplant) and I'm a big fan of these and the ease of the pattern. It's free and available here. I plan to add this for sale to my etsy store.
I also finished a chunky scarf. It is the second scarf I've ever made but I love the texture and colors of the wool. Too bad it is a little too warm for this time of year but it will make a nice Christmas gift if I decide whether or not I can part with it.
And in non-knitting related news...I am obsessed with this hallway. A friend gave me Santa Barbara magazine and it is my new favorite thing to look at. Maybe I could love the west coast after all when I looked at all those designs...
I love the dark and the light colors and the sheen on everything. But mostly I love how they took oversized mats and framed those teeny tiny egg prints. I want some.
