Wherever I go I see hats. Of course, I am mainly interested in children’s hats. And since the weather cooled down a lot around here, there are plenty of hats to look at.Lots of them are knit or crochet.I got some interesting ideas to try out.I notice that lots of hats have flowers, or bows or sparkly bits.Have to think about it. I do not usually “guild the Lilly”. First of all, because the goal is to get that h
There is definitely some advantage to being stressed out of my scull. I am knitting as if my life depended on it. I have even asked permission to knit during a meeting with a school district representative. I needed it. For the record – this permission was cheerfully granted to me. The guy conducting the meeting was a doll and DD #3 will get all the services she needs.I am working out the bugs on my Happy Trian
Yes, yes, yes! I finally finished the Happy Triangles Baby Hat in blue. I love it! The pattern stitch is very nice and bumpy. And I think after all my doubts the top knot looks very cute. What do you think?Now I am making a girl’s version in white and bright pink. Of course tis top will be different. Pattern will be published soon.
I have almost finished a baby boy hat for my friend and got totally stuck. I am not sure how to end it. I wanted to make a nice fat I-cord like this one on my Baby Beloved Hat. I thought I would make it striped. But a friend (thank you Tamar) insists that it begs for a huge pompon. I do not love pompons. I am too Russian for them. They feel like a waste of yarn to me. They are counter-intuitive. After all we like our
This is a very pretty lacy hat. It looks very fancy but the stitch pattern is easy to remember and it works up very fast. You can have one done in a couple of hours. It would look very good in any firm yarn. This hat is perfect for the times when a warm hat is too much.The stitch pattern is easy to remember, but not boring. It was given to me by my Grandmother, who invented it herself. It can be worked over the multi
I am trying to figure out which one of us (me or DD #3) has a hat “issue”. OK, let me speak plainly we are both addicted to hats. I – to knitting and crocheting them, she – to wearing them, sometimes two at the time when it is hard to choose.I have finally got myself together and finished a Toddler Blossom Hat. It lingered, while all I needed to add was the last round. And then, of course, tak
Funny things can happen to us in the middle of the night. Especially if this is the third night in the row to be up with a baby, who wants to eat all the time. Then the crazy with exhaustion brain comes up with things like this little baby hat. I hope you will find it as funny as I do. It is very easy and fast to knit. Would take about an hour or so, unless you are constantly interrupted by your nearest and dearest.
I love making little things for little babies. They knit up fast, need little yarn and, let’s face it, practically anything looks good on babies. So, here is a little hat and socks set I made for my little DD #4.I have actually finished the “Baby Lace Hat” while I was in Sea Gate. But I just got around to writing up the pattern for it. It is a pretty little hat, that is perfect for the time when the
It actually feels like Spring today. Also I heard that more snow is coming on Sunday and Monday. I hope not. I decided that I will not believe it, until I see it. I have actually seen green shoots of tulips and daffodils pocking out of the ground.But I am yearning for real flowers. And I do not want a bucket, I want to see them blooming in the garden. I know, I know, it is a funny craving. But Hey, I am entitled for
