My Projects: Gearing Up To Start!

I'm gearing up to start some new knitting projects! These are gifts so considering how slow I am, I can't delay!

This is the Roar Hat. I am making two of these for two of my Nephews for Christmas who are obsessed with dinosaurs. I am going to use similar colors in cotton yarn from Bernat. 

I hope mine come out this nice. This one pictured is from NeverFrog on flickr. Isn't it adorable?

This gorgeousness is the Baby Chalice Blanket from Lykkefanten. One of my co-worker's is expecting a baby girl this February so I am going to attempt to knit this. I've yet to knit lace so this will be a complete experiment. I'm going to make this in a pretty soft cotton yellow. 

Wish me luck! I will keep you posted on my progress!
