Foliage is my favorite thing about Autumn

So I went to Georgia this weekend for my cousins wedding and as we were leaving for the airport I just couldn’t find the other skeins of the blue sky alpaca organic cotton in pebble for my mother’s cowl!  (don’t worry I found them after we got home last night in my yarn bin- where of course I didn’t look) ANYWAY-


 I decided to start Foliage from Knitty Fall 2007.  I have this awesome yarn that Jessie spun, so I decided that would be perfect for a laid back project for me!  It is my first lace project, and I had a migraine on the flight home, so I didn’t knit at all.  It’s going a little slower than I would like, but it’s really fun!!

This is the crown finished.  I am now working just on the body of the hat.  Unfortunately on the T this morning I did the wrong lace row, so I had to pull out the entire row during lunch and I only got one row done!  It was a little depressing, but it was really hard to rip out with all of the decreases and yarn overs.  Here’s a close up of the pattern:

I’m a little worried about the pattern coming out correctly, but I just keep knitting!  I got a little turned around when I started the smaller chart of the body, but I am getting it more.  I’m excited to see it finished!  And the yarn is so nice, and it will look so great with the scarf Jessie gave me!!
