Doll hat out of Superwash Merino DK in Hummingbird
At the Maryland Alpaca Breeders show, we met a lovely young lady whose mom owned a yarn shop - Jolene at Cloverhill Yarn Shop. Even though she is in grade school, Erika is already an accomplished knitter. She looked long and hard and finally found just the perfect skein of yarn to make a hat for her American Girl Doll, and just a few days later, sent me this pic. Erika, I am sure great things are in your future!

A Hat for All Seasons (coincidentally by Jackie Murton, our next entrant) in Dragon Twisty Aran
If you knit in the Roanoke/Blacksburg area, you undoubtably know Cat's friendly face. She is an accomplished knitter and all-around nice person. Cat has been supportive of Unplanned Peacock since the beginning. Cat is the most creative wordsmith I've ever met and is behind the funniest product reviews on our site.

Jackie officially gets the longest running streak of being nominated for knitter of the month - because she's just taken off with her designs! This month she has designed the cutest set for the youngster in your life. Both of these patterns were designed with her niece in mind, who is taking dance lessons and braving the Pennsylvania winters. Jackie's patterns can be found on Ravelry.
