Busy little hat bee

I am still on the Christmas gift hat kick. I took a side road & finished some socks real quick out of Silkie Socks That Rock for both Tracy & I. 3 pair in all.

These are mine, in color Stardust.

These are Tracy’s in Fire on the Mountain. Very bright & happy socks!

I don’t remember if I posted these ones yet or not but here they are, Tracy’s in Stardust

Now for hats. I have been spicin’ it up a little bit and went for some fun yarns. Alpaca Natural Blends from Bernat was on sale so I picked some up in brown, pink, sky blue & natural. Instead of posting all of them here I thought I would do them individually with some details.

Another hat that I made yesterday was Thuy’s Zeebee. She gave me an original copy when she wanted test knitters & I never got around to trying it. She has a perfect, revised version on her blog for free & I gave it a shot. It’s now permanently on my hat roster. It took me about 4 hours to knit the first one but now that I get it I do believe that I will be able to make them in less time than that. I used SWS in Natural Russet. I did do one thing different than in the pattern just to see how I liked it; I used a 3 needle bind off instead of garter grafting. The next one I will for sure be grafting. I like how it turned out though so I will not take out the bind off.
