I have a hat that I made from Outback Wool a while back, but it looks funky on me. I'll have to see if I can find it, I think its in my stash box. I can't guarantee that I'll have anything else finished by July 1 (World's Slowest Knitter, here), but I at least have that!

I have finished one scarf, but i haven't bound off yet, cause i am making a hat from the same yarn, and i thought i could add the leftover yarn and make the scarf longer.

I have about 5 inches left to go on another. and i am making a hat from that yarn too. this is so much fun!!

You guys are knitting SPEED DEMONS!!!
You're leaving me in the DUST!

When I saw Lissalue and knitting4babybear at Starbucks this Saturday, I had started working on a warm hat with some WEIRD alpaca yarn. (Bear's words) VERY hairy and not so pretty.

Today, I finished the hat while visiting with Lestrella at her house.

I think it looks pretty good!

This sounds like a fun thing to do! Count me in, too.

Shandeh, are we sending everything to you? If so, when do you need it by?

Thanks for joining knitknut!

Everyone should send their stuff DIRECTLY to the Dulaan collection center. (see attached photo)
Make sure you send it AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, so that it will BE THERE by July 1st!

Here's the PDF flyer about the collection:

I used size 11 needles, but I can't remember how many stitches I cast on. I'll see if I can find the pattern I used.

I made a quick neckwarmer this evening. It only took about an hour to make. The yarn is a SUPER SOFT wool, but there is no label on it. It came in the big bag of charity yarn I got this year.

I'll see what I can do!

I finally remembered the pattern, after some thought.
It was hard, though....and REALLY HURT!

I used size 13 needles, and cast on 15 stitches.
I knit the first 3 rows, then did some rows of stockinette with a garter stitch border of 3 stitches. Every once in a while, I would switch to doing garter stitch across the entire row. When I was almost out of yarn, I did a quick bind off, then wove in the ends.

Of course, you have to seam the ends.
