That looks great Rita. So glad you finally made something for yourself. Just hope you won't have to wear it in the very near future.

Rita -If I keep sending you yarn will you keep sending chocolate? The last bunch came just when Gregg and I where having a melt down doing the kitchen. We need pics of you in your lovely hat and scarf :cheering: A word of advice, Don't put fabric sheets in the dryer when you dry them and that will keep the pilling down.

Chocolate by the bucket load :rofl: . I am glad that it came in your time of need. There is nothing like a sugar rush when you are decorating lol
I hope you will not send me your dental healthcare bill when you get cavities:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:
Thanks for the advice . I won't use the sheets .

Hi tillie,
I just used a stitch pattern called mock cable and made it up from there.
I think i cast on 127 for the hat and 62 for the scarf . :hug:

Julie - LOL can you imagine going down the slopes:roflhard:

It Looks so nice on you! :cheering: I bet it felt odd doing something for yourself. I don't think as long as I've known you to do something just for you! :muah:

The cable stitches look just gorgeous. I'm off today to resume my own knitting! (yes I've put the guitar down!!)

Just saw the photo, looks great on you Rita. I hate myself in hats but I do wear one occasionally when it gets really cold here.

Thank you Sue ,
When it is cold , I do not care what i look like in hats . I would rather be warm than suffer the cold .:thumbsup:

I like the nice rich brown. Caron Simply Soft definitely lives up to its name. Those little cables you used on the hat are very effective.

You are so right ! The cables are very effective and the bonus is there was no cable needle in sight :cheering: Thank you :hug:
