  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

Spring lace: helado hat pattern

Yesterday afternoon was beautiful and it was my recovery day, so Ellie and I spent a goodly part of the early evening on the studio porch finishing my hat and watching the neighbors attempt to bring down a tree branch America’s Funniest Home Videos style.

The pattern is Helado by Tanis Gray, and the yarn was a new Plucky Knitter base for me–Snug (worsted) in the early light colorway.  The alpaca makes it a snuggly hat indeed–my thought was that this would be a spring hat, but it definitely feels warm enough for winter even with the lace!  Details on my ravelry page.

Hopefully we’re all done with our winter weather for the year and I won’t have to bust this one out any time soon!  But since it looked like this five days ago it’s hard to say…
