Odessa and Dutchican's #1

Odessa Hat by Grumperina

Yarn: South West Trading Company Bamboo, color is a deep red
Needles: Size 4 Addi circs and size 6 Denise circs
Mods: Skipped the beads, the Bamboo is pretty enough without them
Notes: Simple pattern, especially without the beads. I will make this pattern again, with the beads. I already have DB cashmerino in purple and beads. I will modify this to make a smaller version with the leftovers of the Bamboo for my niece. I'm comfortable enough with the pattern I think (without anyone's help-cough cough) to adapt to a smaller size.

Baby Bolero, One Skein Book

Yarn: Joann's brand Baby Soft, wool/acrylic blend
Needles: Size 8 and 9 Denise circs
Mods: Picked up stitches and knit sleeves directly into sweater instead of knitting separate and seaming in. I HATE seaming.
Notes: After much trial and error with the whole sleeve debacle I feel confident that the second sweater will go MUCH faster. Now that I've jinxed myself I will cast on for it soon.
