My style of knitting is combined knitting these were pretty easy to knit but some of the stiches I had to alter due to combined knitting is not the most common method but is the fastest method. These were all made in the past 2 weeks, for the first time of knitting after 6 years!! :cheering: :XX:

You certainly jumped back in with two feet! Everything looks wonderful. Do you find it hard to convert patterns knitting the combined way? Or is it a matter of just adapting the row written for purl to your style of working the same row?

Agreed with that :shock: :shock:

It's either you knit fast or you have loads of free time to knit!

Everything looks awesome though :thumbsup:

Its not really hard as far as converting patterns, its just the matter of knitting into the stiches that are purled when the pattern indicate to knit because purled stitches are twisted, but you j ust knit it while they're twisted but its j ust a little difficult to do but it will come out the same way.

The hat take about 5 hours depending on how fast you knit. Ususally I start knitting from the time my kids go to school until it is time for me to start my day, but lately I didn't have much work to do and my husband travel out of town with my job, so between the kids being at school and cleaning and cooking, I have about 12 hours knit time. I become so anxious to finish so that brings me late nights!! I'm now looking for knitting pals on who have yahoo messenger and to chat with on the phone to exchange ideas!
