I have been on a hat knitting kick the last few days. These two Turn a Square hats were knit with some of my hand dyed yarns. I love how they turned out and they also knocked a few items of my Christmas gift list. My goal is to be done with my Christmas crafting by Halloween.
Speaking of Halloween. I knit up this slouch hat for my daughter. For this hat I didn’t really use a pattern. I just casted on 108 sts with fingering weight yarn and then I flew by the seat of my pants so to speak. I am pretty sure that’s the first time those words have been uttered out of my mouth too! 😉
I’m still working on improving my spinning on the drop spindle. I have two knit shawls in progress and I have another hat in progress. I have 3 hats, an afghan, and 33 Christmas ornaments left to make this year. Plus, I always come up with a few last minute items.
