It seems like I'm on a new experimenting roll. First I finally stitched together (ableit roughly) the pieces for the bag and hand embroidered a little heart. Then I worked on my first cable knit hat!
What did I learn? Cableing a hat sure shrinks the width of it!

We have not posted many crafting projects recently because well, we've just been plain busy. With all the travel we've been doing I have managed to squeak in two new knit hats. The one on the left is 100% soft and wonderful cotton and the one on the left is a sea cell and merino blend.
The big story here in Seattle is that the Viaduct, part of Highway 99, is closed for the next two weeks which will likely cause major traffic jams throughout the area. They're tearing down the southern half of the viaduct and gave the public an opportunity to take one last walk on it this morning.
We will miss the Viaduct when it's gone, it's a beautiful drive and a super easy way for us to get around.
It was quite a trip walking around up there with no cars. A fun opportunity for sure.
One of the neatest parts was that they were giving away pieces of the Viaduct! They were actually starting to demo it while we were there and watched a tractor dump a fresh load of debris for the crowd to pick over. We came away with a 10+ foot piece of rebar and a small block of concrete.
