Another Hat!

Yes, it’s true, another hat!  I, however; made this one for myself! I’ve had this yarn for well over a year and I just loved the colors!  It’s Patons Decor in autumn varagated and I was really hoping that the pattern would stand out a bit better then it does.  I guess the veragated yarn keeps you for really seeing the pattern.  I still like it and it was a very easy hat to make.  The pattern is from Knitty and is call Foliage, and is easy to do, except watch out for the first few rows.  Because it is a top down hat you start with only two stitches on your DPN’s and that can be a bit of a mess when youre not use to it, but once you finished about 3 or 4 rows it’s a pice of cake.


I’ve been working on a shawl, not sure if I posted about that or not, it’s yet another free pattern.  This one can be found on the Elann site, it’s called the Sun Ray Shawl and I’m doing it in Caron Simply Soft, not that I’m writing about it I’m sure I posted it somewhere on here…  anyhoo, I still chugging alone on it and I’m finding it eaiser to figure out the pattern, though I may never have it commented to memory.

Well that’s about it for right now, I’m sure I’ll be back with something else that’s come off the needles or hook!!


Welcome Nov!

The years are coming to a end quicker and quicker! *Deep Sigh* Only two more months and we will welcome in a new year. *Another Deep Sigh* Oh well, I’ll have a lot to show for it this year!  I’ve made more things this year then ever before, and know I’ll top that next year!  To add another thing to the count, I’ve finished yet another hat for Hubby.  This one is by the same designer as the Koolhaas Hat his name is Jared Flood, and has some great patterns on his blog brooklyntweed.  This one is called Habitat and is a complex looking hat and pattern, but turns out to be well written and simple to understand.

As always thought I have my mistake, but I’m not going to tell you where, but that was me not paying attention to what stitch was next.  I hope to make another one, this on is too short, again, for Hubbys head, so I’ll and a flip up band to it once I get more yarn.

I’ve started another hat, this time it’s for me!  It’s called Foliage, and is a top down hat.  I’m already to the body of the hat and hope to be done soon.

Hope everyone had a safe and happ Halloween and let’s bring on Thanksgiving!!
