They are quick knits, and great gifts....but one can only knit so many before losing interest.
Here is yet another...probably my last...candy cane stripe hat from Handknit Holidays.
Info on this hat is the same as here.
Another Christmas gift done!
Remember this. Well, I finally got started and here I am...
There has been lots of swatching, trying out increases...and ripping, can't forget the ripping and reknitting. But, so far I like it. I did make it plain as he had asked for. I figured I need a basic design before I start adding cables and such.
I love that it is knit top down...it makes so much more sense than knitting flaps and attaching them to the main hat, as many patterns do. I am also using the fabulous Annie Modesitt's slip stitch selvedge she uses in her backyard leaves scarf. It is brilliant.
Tom also wanted it tight fitting, and I have done that...but the flaps kind of stick out a little because they are not fitted like the hat part. I hope blocking will cure some of that.
I do need to do a couple more hats, but I just can't bring myself to cast on for them. Enough hats.
So that brings me to Lucca's sweater. Well, nothing is really jumping out at me...and I bought that Hand Work Cora for it. I have come up with another idea. You see, this guy is the man of the hour around here....how to incorporate Diego and Hand Work Cora....you will see, I hope;)
Safe Travelling on your Holiday Weekend! Happy Thanksgiving!
