I didn’t use a pattern for this hat. It took me a while to figure out a stitch repeat that would work with the number of stitches I cast on.

These booties are from this pattern.IMG_0215This scarf is also going with this gift. It doesn’t match, but it is still green and white.

Scarf and Hat

I made this scarf in one day. I used the last of this yarn on it. It’s more of an infant/toddler size scarf. It is a basic garter stitch using size 15 needles and two worsted weight yarn strands. It’s 30 inches long. It feels cuddly.

I knit this hat last month sometime, I don’t think I ever posted it because it wasn’t with the rest of my finished knits. It’s an adult size hat.

 

Fulfilled Order

It took me a while to actually finish this order. It was for Christmas, so I knew I had a lot of time. I finished two hats, two mittens, and one set of booties months ago, and here’s the second one.

I knitted a pair of white mittens like these, but the white ones are smaller because the weight is different.

I just realized that this hat reminds me of Charlie Brown.

Mittens for Mom

I wanted to make something for my mom for Christmas. We settled on mittens. She wanted to be able to push the button on her camera with her finger, but had to take her whole glove off to do it, so I thought fingerless mittens were the way to go… and then I’m to add a top to the mittens. I tried to find a pattern on ravelry that would do it, but I think I’m going to try and meld two together.

Flip Flap Mittens and Snowy Woods Mittens

I read through the flip flap mittens pattern and determined that I had to do it myself just as the pattern was written before trying to take the flip flap part of it out and add it to the Snowy Woods Mittens. So I’m knitting a pair of flip flap mittens for myself. I knitted three swatches today, using a size 3, 4, and 5 needle. The gauge on the 4 & 5 was exactly the same…. weird, I thought. And evidently I knit waaaay to tight, because size 3 was way off. Needle 4 is only a tiny bit off, so I’m going to use that one, though the pattern calls for size 3. I’m glad I checked the gauge, I usually don’t. Maybe I will from now on. The only bad part is that I don’t have size 4 double pointed needles. I’m using this yarn. I’m rather excited about it. It looked pretty awesome when I was swatching it.

So in the meantime I started the infant mittens from purl soho until I can get the DPNs. I’m using 3 ply yarn and no accents for this particular pair. We’ll see how it works out.
