I've started two beanies (same one two times) but messed up bad enough to rip it out. I'll get there one of these days. I promised my dd the beanie by the end of March 2008 so I can only delay till Jan/Feb 2008.
Proud mom of two: Angelica 16 and Jonathan 11 and our three cats: Pepper, Oreo and Lilly.
FO's: Lots of dishcloths, beanies, bandanas, Easy Lace Scarf, Christmas Stockings - mini and regular sizes, Central Park Hoody, Scarf & Hat set, an American Flag Table Runner, Chenille Pillow cover
frogged: Log Cabin Stashghan - I'll try again but in different colors.
I have been knitting for years and until last year I never made a hat. But I tried one and loved the way it turned out, plus it was fast and easy so I made a couple more as Xmas gifts last year.
This year, I am making hats and matching scarves for some of the people that work for me and I think they will really like them. I have a bunch done already.
I got this beautiful yarn at Rhinebeck a few weeks ago and the person gave me this great pattern for a scarf with the purchase of the yarn. I wanted to try and figure out how to make a hat to match and pulled out some of my knitting books. In the first one I looked through I found a hat pattern with the same stitch as the scarf pattern! I cannot believe how great they look together.
I've knit tons of hats. Maybe 50 over the years. I think hats are cool and just love knitting them. My biggest problem is that I live in an area of the country where it isn't warm enough long enough to properly wear all the hats I've knit and I tend to grab the same 2 or 3 hats everytime I walk out the door.
I can't remember the exact number, but I know I've done several baby hats for my DD and a few other baby's born in the past few years, a few hats for DH, at least 3 for me, at least 6 for each of my boys.
You're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I'm tripping you
