I’ve been forgetting to blog about stuff I make. This is a turban I made from a pattern on Knitty. My LYS was doing an entrelac KAL, and I didn’t like any of the suggested patterns but LOVED this one. Another girl and I were nuts about doing this pattern. She’s knitted a billion of them, whereas I’ve made only one, but I really like it and plan to do it again.

The pattern is here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEss13/KSPATTgreygardens.php

My older daughter, Chi, is getting married in a couple of weeks, and I had bought a lovely dress for the wedding. However, it’s sleeveless, and I wanted something for my shoulders. I found this lovely gold-color yarn (Berroco Remix) at my LYS, and cast on the shrug. One week later I was done, and I have enough yarn left for another small project.

I had my husband Chris take a picture of Dulci wearing her new dress. I think it’s really cute, and I’m going to make her one in black as well.

The dress is really easy to make and takes less than a typical skein of acrylic yarn. Dulci seems to like the dress and wears it willingly.
