Martin’s Hat

I made Martin a red beanie for Christmas, I love how it turned out! It was a very simple ribbed pattern and was knit flat on two needles. The pattern for the hat is found here.

More Four Angle Coasters! I love this pattern… if you couldn’t tell :) . One of these days I will have to put it up on Ravelry or something.

Raindrop Cowl/Headband

Yay! I finally used my knitting machine again! I made this cowl/headband with some Caron Simply Soft on a size 3 key plate. It is stockinette with some dropped stitches. In binding off I dropped every fourth stitch or so. This made some nice stripes through the work, but they tend to pull apart a bit. Basically dropping the stitches just loosened up the work so it doesn’t curl so badly. I love adding buttons to my projects!

Button Hat

I made this hat with Lion’s Brand Homespun yarn that a friend gave me. I was able to knit two hats with only the one skein, and I actually had some left after the second hat as well! This pattern was easy to follow and it knit up very quickly. Simon kept interrupting while I was taking photos of it, so I had him pose for me.:] He is too cute!

Pattern found Here, You have to scroll down quite a ways to find the hat pattern, it’s the “Start your needles hat challenge”.

Simon’s Sweater

I got the idea for this from a pattern on Ravelry that is no longer available. I basically just knit a big rectangle with two little arm holes in it. It turned out pretty good, but the neck opening was a little big.:)

Smockings

Yay! Some legwarmers for dance! This is one of my patterns. I came up with the name by combining what they are (stockings) and the technique I used on them (smocking). Smockings!

Dropped Paprika Scarf

This only took one ball of  Premier Yarns Serenity Sock Weight! I had it left over from a different project and thought it would be perfect for this pattern. This is the first project that I have ever had to block. It still curls but is better than before blocking.

Pattern found on Ravelry Here

Red Sox Mitts

I made this pattern with a moss stitch and some ribbing. They are made from the same yarn as my blue cabled purse. I used some red embroidery floss on the cuffs. Go Red Sox!
