Knitting the Queue: Project Update

I haven't had much time to work on Knitting the Queue lately. A lot of my free time has been spent getting my rusty spinning skills back up to speed, gardening and watching Dr. Who. Priorities, you know.

I finished the second block on project #1, the Lizard Ridge afghan, and am almost done with the third block:


I finally finished project #3, the Fake Isle Hat. I used Crystal Palace Mochi Plus in color 555 Tapestry Rainbow for the main color and a generic wool/acrylic blend for the black. I gotta tell you, 555 is powerfully ugly in the ball, which is probably why it was the only color still left on the shelf:

It just goes to show that you can't judge a yarn by its put-up. 555 knitted up very nicely. Very nicely indeed.
