This weekends knitting (which there really hasn’t been much of) has been just to keep my hands busy.
First I decided to do holiday hats for us. I chose the Shedir pattern from knitty because it’s a great charted cable pattern that is easily altered for each head size in my family.
And I am using Knitpicks new yarn, Telemark in the colors below:
George’s is the first to be worked on in the Grey Wolf color. I do love the pattern.
And next is a hat that I whipped out (crocheted) for Sadie using one of Red Hearts new variagated yarns. For $.79 worth of yarn and one hour it’s not a bad lookin hat!
It didn’t pool! I don’t care if it does the whole spiral/twisty thing as long as it does not pool!
Since you don’t really get a good ribbing in crochet I decided to do a horizontal edging. Simple but just a little something on that last inch. So I just single crocheted through the back loop for the last 4 rounds. Simple.
The patons sws sweater that I am designing has seen some work also. This is how it looked on Saturday morning:
And here it is as of last night:
Stitches are all picked up around the deep V for the collar. All that is left are to knit the sleeves after finishing the collar, then a tad bit of finishing work. Finalize the pattern, have someone test knit it for me & I am good to go!
Um…other than that I have sat on my butt. oh, the pumpkin patch last night with the kids, church this morning and shopping with tracy yesterday. Okay, then I sat on my butt!
