Okay let’s see where I am for my Hats for 2008
Today begins week 9 of the year (63 days in)
Hat 1: “1989”
Hat 2: Ball Band Toddler Hat
Hat 3: Vyridia Fair Isle Hat
Hat 4: Rosie the Riveter Head Scarf
Hat 5: Pink Alpaca Smoke Ring
Hat 6: Elongated Knit Hat
Hat 7: Scrappy Gems
Hat 8:Heart Lace hat. Pattern found here at a friends blog: MusicAngel7
I changed the pattern a bit. Only 60 stitches, 4 repeats, 6 decreases and an added eyelet rows between repeats.
Marissa says it could be a bit longer. I was running out of yarn or I would have. She’s letting me know her ear sticks out, but I didn’t want to tell her she just has big ears…..
Hat 9: No clue, but I have all week to find a pattern and knit it. Looks like I’m right on schedule!
I’m also attempting 2 socks at once on one circular needle. The first pair made it past the heel turn and some of the gusset but I realized that they were to big. I’m recasting on with different yarn and 48 stitches. I just can’t knit tight enough anymore! Good thing I won’t wear the socks all the time, they won’t last long since they aren’t that tightly knit. 6 stitches per inch is all I can do with the needles I have.
