My Mix No. 10 hat is progressing nicely. I am in love with Shibui Cima. I am considering knitting an entire wardrobe out of this yarn...it might be the softest yarn I have ever used. It's held doubled for this hat, and the slip stitch pattern is really fun. I didn't consider how the ivory and lumen would play together, so the top section is very subtle, but I love it.
I am hopeful that there is enough left to make another whole hat. I'll need to switch up the colors, but that's half the fun.
And I have inspiration to share. The Purl Bee's Shadow Stripe Baby Blanket is calling to me. It seems like it would be so easy to upsize, too, for a larger throw. The Purl Bee blankets are always winners...checkout the beautiful gallery on their site (including links to all of the free patterns).

I'll be back this week full force. I just need one night of solid sleep, and then I'll be ready to tell you all about our new yarn, new books, and new magazines. Bear with me!
