The second hat is made from yarn I overdyed with Kool Aid.  Its my first time doing that and I just loved it.  

The scarf was my first time working with Noro.  And I'm a little underwhelmed with that yarn.  I was looking forward to working with it, but I found it to be so inconsistent, and way overspun.  The colours are gorgeous though, and I do like the finished object.

Totally agree with ya on the Noro - I loved the colors, but the yarn was WAY itchy and totally not worth what I paid for it. On the other hand, everyone loves the finished products...
BTW...I LOVE the overdyed hat - FAB colors (I want one...hint) Roll Eyes

Those are all great. Noro may not be the best yarn, but the colors are fatastical! What's the pattern?

The scarf is from a free pattern that I got here


Its sort of entrelac like, but don't let that frighten you.  Its so easy!

Everything looks great!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
