Hats.
My 12yo made District Band, which meant a weekend away from home for the two of us--she having intensive band rehearsals and me in the hotel room knitting away!

Here are the two hats I finished in a rare weekend of actually having knitting time. The second is the Sideways Grande Cloche from Boutique Knits, knitted in the Cobblestone Heather colorway of KnitPicks Swish Bulky.



The first is a variation of the Watch Cap from Lion Brand's website, knitted in 128 Cascade Chunky.

Those are great! I especially like the second one ... I think yours turned out even better than the pattern photo!

No Problem

I'm working on finishing my first real project, and am thinking of trying a hat next. I definitely like the fit you achieved with yours ... I may just have to check out this pattern!

Great, two kids just walked in while I was looking at those pictures and my project list grows again.

They turned out WOWZERS! I'm going to try the cloche in a very light grey for my son's fiancee. She's been patiently waiting for me to make her a cap.

Great! I'll bet she likes it.

BTW...AFTER I knitted it the first time, I looked on Ravelry to see about the little cable thing...and found that everyone said they should have gone down a needle size or two...

So, do check your gauge. It's an easy knit, and I loved the fabric on the needles I was using, so I just cast on fewer stitches the second time around.
