Yaaayyy, a knitting post with pictures!!! Haven’t gotten the other pictures off the camera yet, but I snapped a few with my phone of projects that I’m working on. Handy dandy phone even if I hardly ever talk on it, it makes for a great camera, and I text a wee bit too. 😛
So here are the hats that are on the needles right now. I started watching some NatGeo shows on Youtube and knit, knit, knit.
I started a red wine colored hat because I sold three of these last year on the shop. Some with black or brown color work patterns in them, and some just plain. Seems to be a popular color. And then I started the purple hat, and then saw the small ball of bright pink on my desk that I was going to use to make woven hearts, and thought I’d add a bit of color work to the purple hat. Didn’t get to bed til 12:30 last night because I wanted to finish the color section. 😛 Might do the same pattern on the wine colored hat again too. I don’t know why, but this pattern is one of the best sellers on the shop. Kinda looks like a fence, or a rail road track. I just doodled it on a hat last year, and that sold really quick, so I made two more, and those sold also. All the hats I made with fancy zig zags and diamond patterns, didn’t sell at all. Go figure. 😛
Then there are these two that I just had to finish off the tops on yesterday. Soon to be kitty cat hats for the shop. The yellow looking one is a cream color, and the other one is a burnt orange color, not as bright as it looks in the picture. Kinda like a dark pumpkin color.
And then the weaving. Many hearts, and many squares! I was thinking about adding some of the hearts to blankets, but I’ll have to do a test square to see how my stitching looks on the back side! I don’t like my stitching much. I need to work on it more. Especially making faces on animals and dolls.
And there you have it. A quick and easy what I’m working on post. When I get the pictures off the other camera there will be a boodle of baby hats to show, and about four put together blankets from donated squares for the hospitals. And then a good stack of the woven blankets, because I found a hospital in MD that needs them for their NICU!
