I finished Eric’s Cabled Newsboy Cap in only one day! I love the way it came out, but now the fun is over. I have to go back to the Transformers washcloth. I just love making hats. I think it is the instant gratification that gets me. I think I am going to make a beret for myself next week. I figured a hat once a week would be pretty cool to do. That way, when there are birthdays and holidays I will be stocked up with gifts. I’ll just have to ask them to pick a color or style and tada there’s a gift. I think that is an awesome idea. I am also going to make myself some house socks because my socks are getting dirty and I hate to wear slippers. They make my feet feel too hot. I have a nice pattern for some house socks in Sarah Dallas Knitting. Its a book with really beautiful patterns, and I have not made a pattern from that book yet. I think I will also make the beret in the book, too.
Here are some pics of my hat from cast on to end result. I had fun making this yesterday.
