Making


I've been making hats. Small, easy to carry to the hockey rink, hats. One I like, the other, well, not so much.


The infant hat is made from left-over sock yarn. This just happens to be sknitches syncopation yarn in mint mocha latte. Easy, peasy pattern...just like it says!
The other hat is Ida's Kitchen. Very hip and trendy. Just not on me and with the colors I chose. I might make this again for a young adult, with bright, fun colors.
I'm also going to leave this picture small. That way, you can't see the huge black circles under my eyes.
Currently, I've gone back to knitting Astor. I've got the back, two pocket linings and half a front completed. It's a quick knit and with a ton of hockey this weekend, I hope to finish it up soon!

Love the hats, especially the top one. I'm working on a hat right now for my daughter and I'm going to try and line it with some fleece...hopefully this will eliminate the "it itches" factor :).

Aww, you are plenty hip enough to pull off that hat! It looks so cute! Love the other one too. Nothing like a quick knit.

Hats and socks are good on the go projects. I personally think the Ida's Kitchen looks great on you.
