More Hats :)

So I'm pretty much a terrible blogger.  It's been, oh, 2 months since I last posted anything.  But I guess it's been about 2 months since I finished anything...

Ok, so that's not totally true.  I made a 5 1/2 hr crochet blanket for a co-worker who has lung cancer.  Only, I forgot to take a picture of it.  Oops!

My coworker recently had to shave her head and she asked me if I would make her a hat in cotton for the spring. I was so touched that she asked me to make her a hat, I made her 2!
The first hat is foliage from knitty.  It was my first experience with lace, and I'm happy to say that while I had to frog it once, I finished the second time around with no issues.  I really like lace and am very happy with how it turned out!

The second hat is called Mod Cables Hat I found on Ravelry.  I didn't follow the instructions exactly, as I left off the last 6 rows of the pattern, and I think this was probably a mistake.  It's a *touch* to short, but my coworker is very petite (and I'm told I have a big head :P ) so it might work out just fine.

I can't wait to give them to her!
