Doing my mom a favor and knitting some hats for her sister in law. This is hat one. The next hat will probabl be a plain black beret.

Knit a hat tonight. The pattern is from the Noro Accessories book. I used some Red Heart Super Solid yarn I had, but I will probably make it again in a lighter color and softer yarn.
The pattern was very easy. It only took me two hours to knit. 🙂
I finally took a picture of my Lina hat, plus I got to wear it this morning on the way to dropping my son off at school.
I was so happy when I realized that the hat matched the entrelac cowl I made last month. By the way, the cowl is made in Red Heart Super Saver Purple Tones, and the pattern was my own.
I decided to make the Lina hat for myself this week.
This is the yarn I’m using.
It is a yarn from Brown Sheep that I bought a very long time ago at a thrift store. I love the color purple, and this next pix shows the color a little better.
I think the pattern is a quick knit. As long as you don’t have a problem with cables you can easily make it. I plan to finish it by the end of the week.
Now I’m going back to my Nascar racing. Have a good night!
So I am really showing the little men in my life some love right now. I finished my new nephew’s blanket a few days ago. He isn’t due til the end of July, so technically I will be giving the blanket to my SIL. I used a basic granny square pattern and changed the colors every once in a while. I wanted to use Red Heart Soft Yarn, since I already had a ball of it in Avocado. Since it was a pretty unique color I had, I wanted the other colors to be unique, too, so I got teal and grape. I think of it as a modern baby blanket, since it isn’t made with lighter colors, like baby blue and mint green. I had a hard time taking a good pic, since the yarn tends to shine when I use the flash on the camera. I hope the pics are decent.
This is the yarn I had left over from the three original balls. I am going to use them in a fair isle hat I plan to make for myself. I am not going to make it until I finish my garter yoke cardigan. I want to use the leftover yarn from that project as a base color for the fair isle hat.
My mom gave me two balls of Scarlet Red Caron Natura Yarn, and I had no idea what to do with it. It is a little bright for a scarf and hat set, atleast for my skin tone. I imagine that it will make my skin look orange.
So I decided to crochet a toy for Peanut, a big red ball. He loved it, expecially since he didn’t see me make it. My husband has requested that I make a bunch of these balls in different colors. He has also asked that I make a soccer ball. I have a lot of black and white yarn, but I don’t think I have a lot of patience to make the kind of soccer ball he wants.
I have also started making some cable socks from my Sarah Dallas Knitting book, but I have not taken any pics of them yet. Today is laundry day, so I probably won’t be able to work on them today. I might get some pictures up by the end of the week.
It has been so long since I picked up a hook! I think that the last time I crocheted something was when I made a Winnie the Pooh dishcloth. I had a lot of yarn left over from the Nemo hat, and I wanted to make something for Peanut, so I made a penguin. The penguin pattern is from the Lion Brand website, and it’s very easy. Essentially it is a bunch of circles and one ball. As I was making it Peanut was amazed that it was becoming a penguin. I began the penguin yesterday night, and finished it this morning. Here are some pics.
We have finally gotten some rain here, and I thought it would be fun to play with my camera effects and take pictures of the storm clouds coming in on Friday. I think it has rained on and off each day since then. 😀
