This time with pictures

Another post in a rush when I really, really should be getting ready for work. In any case, the spumoni hat got a friend last night with the orange one I worked on at knitting group. Finished just at the end of the evening (well, no ends sewn in, you were expecting finished?) some new people across the room thought it was inspired to put just a hint of cream at the very top. Um, no, it's called going a tad to far on the length of the hat and running out at the very top decreases.

Have to see how many more of these I want to do. It sounds like there are plenty already being contributed. One can but hope that if a cancer center finds themselves with a surplus, they have a distribution system to share with other centers that may have needs.

The eyelash (fun fur) is different to work with, but I'm not sure I'd want to do it all the time. I've worked with it in doing the hedgehogs, but there the eyelash is worked with a strand of regular wool, so if a stitch doesn't happen, there's backup. Working eyelash by itself is a bit more care-consuming when you're used to just motoring along in stockinette.
