This test knit was for a fellow Malabrigo Junkie, Kristen Hanley Cardozo. The Maple Leaf Rag Hat isn't published yet but I know a lot of people have been chomping at the bit for the pattern. The hat can be knit in two different styles, cloche or slouchy. The first time knitting this pattern I knit the slouchy version. I fell in love with it...this hat will be hard to part with. My only consolation is that it's such a fast and easy knit, I know I can whip out another one in no time.
Yarn: Dream in Color - Classy
Color: In Vino Veritas - VM250
Since it was such a quick knit, I decided to work up the cloche version in a navy.
Color: Paris Night - 52
And, oh my goodness...take a look at this little thing. This test knit is not for the auction, instead will be gifted to a friend's daughter. I just love this little top. This can be knit in several styles as well. I opted for the tank version. This was a quick knit using a worsted weight yarn and can easily be knit up in just a few days (if you felt so inclined). :-)

And...I can't forget to share a sample knit I finished up a little bit ago. These samples are for Debbie O'Neill. With the pattern being on the back of the leg only, these knit up really quick, too. I just love how this colorway knit up.
