I'm testing myself this year with finishing things.  I seem to start a lot of projects but many of them do not get finished.  For instance, the hearts.  I wanted to have an odd number as they look better grouped in that way, however, after two I went on to start a scarf (unfinished) and then this hat.  I loved the yarn so much for this hat and the colors just excite me that I had to finish it.  It only took one day for me to make this, with interuption too.  The pattern has a cowl scarf and fingerless mittens to go with it but I have not started them yet.  (I think I need to finish my other scarf).  But, since this yarn is so yummy I will probably abandon the white scarf all together and do this.  But maybe I should do another heart or three?

The yummy yarn used in this is Berroco Borealis (60% acrylic, 40% wool), and the pattern was by a young lady named Celeste  Young who works at a specialty yarn shop here in Colonie New York called Trumpet Hill.
Their website is here: http://www.trumpethill.com/home.  The pattern is called Button Brim Set, cap, wristlets. cowl.

Of course there are other art projects I have in the works too but they are unfinished as of yet too.  Since the deadline is coming up on them I think I will go tackle them today and then come back to the above forementioned cowl scarf and mittens.

Hope you are enjoying your MLK Holiday and making some art.
