Skull Cap

It was just a gorgeous fall weekend here in the Northeast. The leaves are the prettiest that I have seen in a long while. Hope all of you were able to get outside and enjoy some nice weather too!

Finished up a hat for a friend. I know the model isn't the most handsome...but believe me, it was better than me. I loved making this hat. It was quick and easy and the yarn was so soft. I will be making a bunch of these for holiday gifts.

I started the Mystery Through the Loops socktober socks but am going to rip them out. I used a number 2 needle despite not listening to my gut. I always use number 1's when knitting socks. Will try again on a smaller needle.

Have a happy week everyone!

Thanks everyone! Hopefully the hat will keep her warm through some very rough times ahead.
