Cal's Holiday KAL: Two more Projects!

First of all, I have completed clue #1 of the Fall Mystery Shawl. I am using Knit Picks Gloss (Chipotle). The first few rows were really hard because they are double-sided lace, and the double decreases on the wrong side were a huge pain. But it was worth it to get to the later rows. Cute leafies! (Edit: Just found out I have to make a SECOND one of these. My poor fingers. T_T)

I've also started the Luna hat and now I only have to do the crescent moon. I took a bunch of progress shots for everyone! I am using Vanna's Choice for this project. I believe the colorways are Pink, Purple, and Mustard. (Why they don't just have Yellow I'll never know).

It's just one hat - I wanted to make that clear so you don't give me an extra project in the final count. :)

Adorable hat and I'd love to make one in corgi colors for Fred. We have joked for years about being interested in something by putting our hands up behind our head to "perk up our ears" like our many corgis have done. We try not to do it out in the normal world, but forget once in a while. A business dinner at a fancy restaurant comes to mind. LOL

What is the pattern, please? I'm really serious about wanting to make one for Fred. :)

Meant to say your shawl start is awesome. You sure do have a lot of skill knitting! The leaf motif is one of my favs. Looks like an heirloom in the making. :)

The pattern for the hat is heavily modified from another pattern, and then I made up some ears that I had previously used for some fox ears. I actually forget exactly how I did the ears but I could write up a recipe later if you wanted!
