Baseball Beanie & Wedding Wrap

The World Series starts tonight, and it’s starring my favorite team, the Kansas City Royals! We’re all so excited around here, of course, and we’re ready to party like it’s 1985. I’ve got my snacks, my Royals chip & dip tray and my Royals cupcakes. And I might even be wearing my new Royals beanie that I *just* finished knitting today! I bought three skeins of blue acrylic to make some fun projects, and a hat to match my fingerless gloves was first on the list.

This is Dee’s Slouch Hat and I love that you can wear it either slouchy or with a folded brim. I used Bernat Satin to make it, with size 6 needles for the brim and size 7 for the body.

Okay, so not everything is about baseball around here. Mostly, but not all. I also started another project, a wedding wrap. The pattern is the Regalia Cowl Capelet Wrap and it is absolutely gorgeous. It’s my first lace pattern, and at first I was completely overwhelmed. But I took it row by row and soon it was flying along. It helps that it’s done with super bulky yarn on size 19 needles. This is with Bernat Alpaca in peony. I’m hoping it has enough alpaca in it to block nicely when I’m done. Anyway, I’m a little over halfway done, but here’s a peek.
