Wow, I haven’t posted since Halloween. Hope you guys have not abandoned me.
The knitting bug just quietly went to sleep, into a deep hibernation. It just woke up and it’s hungry!! I’ve been wanting to knit and I have! I do have some pics to show of FO’s too! Yay me!!!
So, onto some pics. This is the Capucine Hat. I wanted to make it for me, but alas my head is ginormous and it seems that my daughter magically fits into all the hats I make.
I also made a Jayne Cobb hat a looong time ago. I think I made it over the summer, or in late September. I used Cascade and luckily found the colors at a LYS.
I went digging for some needles and found stash I forgot about! Don’t you love it? I got this skein of Cascade 220 and wanted to make a hat with it. I’m going to restart and do it on bigger needles. This is the Square Circle Hat.(Rav Link)
I’m also making a White Zombie sock.(Rav Link) I got this yarn from my MIL last year for my birthday. It’s Sunshine Sock yarn.
I impulsively bought a fine gauge sock loom at Hobby Lobby. I also picked up a skein of yarn so I could get started on it.
I guess the lure for the loom is to be able to make socks faster. Not yet though. I’m making a baby sock (30 sts) and it took me nearly a half hour just to cast on. As with all new things, it takes time. But I would have had these socks knitted by now! I’m still plugging along, not sure if this is an alternative for me or not. I may just go ahead and teach one of my kids to use it so I don’t waste $25.
Ok, that’s it for the catch up post. Hopefully I’ll be back before two months is up with some FO’s!
