Projects on the go and in the thoughts...

In searching for an idea for Corey's hat...my girlfriend came across these bargins...
Zoe Mellor's Adorable knits...for $7.99 at winners!
Ros Badger's Knitting...for $12.99 at winners!'
I must be on the look out for knitting books in these stores...I had no idea.

Anyway, the Adorable knits has a great cable hat with earflaps that I thought would look great for a teen...without the pom pom of course.



I am using some leftover superwash wool from that debbie bliss cabled jacket I made my niece...the green is quite nice. I also have some tan that I could trim it in. After a couple gauge problems, I finally am on a roll with it.

Check out this cabled cardigan from the ros badger book...



NOT into the outfit...but the sweater is simple with nice details...



I have some rowan calmer in cream in the stash that I think will work....oh to start knitting for myself again.....*sigh*

That cabled waistline is so great! I really like that touch!

I REALLY like that sweater - so simple but special with the cabled waistline, cuffs and edges! I just found the book for $4.52 at Amazon - worth it just for that pattern alone! Thank you.

Love that cabled sweater. I have had great luck with knitting books at Winners. Who would have thought!

I love the sweater. It will look really good once you are done.

I picked up the Badger book at Chapters - it was pretty reasonable. I really like the sweater as well - it would look great on you!

Me too, Me too!

I trying to wrap up my holiday knit-gifts but all I seem to want to do is knit the 4-5 sweaters that are in my head.
