Yarn: Tahki Yarns New Tweed (70% merino, 15% silk, 11% cotton, and 4% viscose), size 6 circulars

Project Description: Republic Hat 2

republic3.JPG

Pattern Source: Created by Nik

Yarn: Dunno, size 6 needles

Notes: I cast on 113 stitches and then cast off 23 at the appropriate place. I should have knit for another inch because the hat is a little small, but not terrible.

Project Description: Alpaca Hat

alpsilk1.JPG

Pattern Source: This one is from the top down. Cast on 12, increase 1 stitch per every three stitches. Knit 1 round plain. Increase 1 stitch per every four stitches. Knit 1 round plain. Repeat increasing (and increasing the number of stitches between increases) until 104 stitches total. Knit around until seems big enough (about 5 inches from last increase round). K2, P2 for the brim for about 4-6 inches as per your preference.

Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca's Alpaca and Silk (two strands held together), size 6 needles (blue is Koigu to crochet edge, added to pompom, and duplicate stitched for decoration).

Notes: I originally bought 4 skeins of Alpaca/Silk. I made a hat for my dad and had enough left over for a hat for me.

Project Description: Toasty Toes Again

knittop6.JPG

Pattern Source: My own simple ribbed pattern.

Yarn: Toasy Toes of course!

Notes: I finished off these socks that were originally started in July. The second sock is still 8 stitches bigger than the first. Somewhere around the heel on the first sock I decreased 8 stitches, I don't know where or how. Both socks have 52 stitches for the ribbing and 26 stitches at the heel, but then the first sock is 44 stitches around the foot. Where'd the 8 stitches go?! So, one sock fits slightly better than the other, but at this point I don't care.
