Knitting Update!

February 23, 2009

So since my 1st hat i.e. mitten I’ve been busily perfecting my technique and knitting away!

I took a class at my awesome local knitting store Creative Fibers to learn how to knit in the round.

Have you seen those adorable little vegetable and fruit hats for little kids? This is the pattern for those hats….except I don’t really know how to make the strawberry seeds yet πŸ™‚ So my next hat will probably be two colors but not be a recognizable vegetable or fruit. Basically I am trying to restrain myself from buying more yarn when I still have some that hasn’t been knitted…we’ll see how long I can resist πŸ™‚

My poor dog who loves his Mom but loves the treats he gets after posing even more πŸ™‚

And the hats I knitted before my first one “in the round” (with the mitten thrown in the there for scale purposes!)

Happy knitting πŸ™‚

I can’t wait to talk knitting when you’re here next week. I’m obsessed!

Totally cute! Love the pattern. It totally works even without the strawberry colors and seeds. Looking forward to knitting with you in a couple weeks πŸ™‚

Look at you…you’re a knit’in fo’. Looks like fun. I’ve always wanted to knit, but I’m embarrassed to say I can’t even knit a scarf….seriously crooked….but you sure do seem to have the hang of it!

Very cute baby hats:)And congrats on your first HAT hat! It could be a blueberry… πŸ™‚

MOM!!! STOP it!!!!!!

Yeah all these hats (save for the mitten!) will be donated to Save the Children – a friend is coordinating the effort. But after that I may look into donating more locally!

please put me on the wait list for a strawberry hat (the eggplants are super-cute too…hummmm) for my “hope chest!”
love love love it… well done!
if you need a “project” for the single color guys, look into donating them to your local hospital for the newborns. I know here (at Hasbro Children’s) every babe is sent home with a hand knit hat…especially handy for the preemies as you can’t buy them that small!
