Simple worsted beanie in Red Heart Camo-I think!
Ooh Baby Knit's basic hat pattern in Wool-Ease Worsted
I am the world's worst about forgetting to record what pattern I'm using or the size needles or yarn used. That's one of the reasons I began a blog. I figured I'd post pics of current projects as I'm working on them, along with the specs, then I'd have those posts to refer back to when I forgot what materials were used.
I don't recall what pattern I used for the above hats, nor am I even sure of the yarn used for the first one. I don't ordinarily buy Red Heart yarn, as it feels too scratchy to me, but I think I picked up a skein of it in camo on impulse while in Wal-Mart one day.
I love using Wool-Ease for hats. It comes in a variety of colors, is washable, is inexpensive, and is really soft!
I ran across the info for the brown hat today.
Pattern: Ooh Baby Knit's basic hat pattern.
Needles: Size 6 16" circular
Cast on 80 stitches.
I knit the two above caps for my grandsons for Christmas. That would be last Christmas. I found them in a cupboard today. Sigh. It isn't the first time I've put back a Christmas gift then forgotten to gift it when the holiday rolled around. My daughter still likes to remind me of the year she received a leather jacket for Christmas, two weeks AFTER Christmas, when I found it in the back of a closet. Maybe I should start myself a Christmas blog. It might help me to remember where everything is stashed!
Pre-felted eyeglass case out of Cascade 220
I knit this eyeglass case using Cascade 220. I don't recall the needle size I used. I sincerely have my doubts that it's going to be big enough once felted. I'm going to go ahead and felt it. If it's too small, at leat not much yarn was invested in the project. I'll give the specs for my own benefit to compare with the after felting stage.
I'll post another picture once the felting is done. I want to wait until I finish a (bigger) Booga Bag I'm working on, so I can felt them at the same time.
If the eyeglass case is larger enough, it will be a gift for my mom. She's a 'pink' kind of girl. I'm not.
