Blinker's Hat

The first of the baby hats is done - second one has been started in pinks. Matching booties will follow. We don't know what the gender of the baby is (due in July, hat and booties won't be needed before September/October so plenty of time).
And the first ball of yarn is used up on the cardigan. Unfortunately, it's been languishing for a few days.
Some tagging was done too. I like the fact that by doing it in pieces the new bits will always be brightening it up. We didn't get questioned by the police today; too gloomy out. Who's going to argue about a splash of color on a gray fence on a gray day?

The fish and glitter are in honor of Sue Fisher; she used to say she was part crow.

I love the way the self-striping yarn colors the i-cord on the baby hat. And I love the tagging. Such a day brightener.

I saw a bunch of knit tags near the Textile Center on Friday. It might have been the first time I saw one in person!

Blinker will look adorable in the hat; it seems somehow elven. Thank you in advance!
