Booties and Hats

DSCN0748

I’ve been making booties like there’s no tomorrow. They don’t take very long to make, which is nice. I find that sewing seams is not as great as I thought. I suppose I prefer knitting in the round. The colors are flame orange, military camouflage, purple, pink, and yellow. The yellow ones are spoken for.

I knit this hat for a new infant due in December, to go with the yellow booties. Now I have to make mittens, and then another set of hat, booties, and mittens.

Red and Purple Hat Finished!

I finally finished the hat today that I’ve been working on for a while. It’s for one of my aunts. I used the Be Kind pattern on ravelry. I changed the bulk of the pattern in that I the purl stitches are red and the knit stitches are purple. I have rather fallen in love with stranded knitting, changing colors and so forth. It’s pretty awesome. I’m only modeling it for picture purposes.

This particular picture has no real purpose except that I like how it looks. 🙂

DSCN0461I actually like the reverse side of the hat better than the right side. I suppose you could wear it however you want.

This is the right side of the hat.DSCN0434You can wear the solid red part of the hat over your ears or flip it up if you like, as in the rest of the pictures.

On my needles – Red and Purple Hat

I promised my aunt a hat… a while ago. She requested these colors. 🙂 It’s like the red hat society. It should be done within the next week, depending on how my children behave and if I can knit while they’re awake or if I have to do it when they are asleep.

I went to the local yarn store today. I haven’t been to the store … wow… since before I was married and that was like almost 4 years ago. It changed a lot. But I found this skein of yarn and I never knew how much you could really like yarn until I saw this one. It’s Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop, color: Bright Spot. I think I’ll make myself a hat out of it. It’s so soft. I just want to bury my face in it.
