OMG It's August!


It's been forever since I posted. Let's see... what have I made since April?

The Tychus Hat
This is a pattern from It's an adult sized hat that taught me to do short rows and color changing. It's all knit-stitch, so it knitted up super fast! I used red and grey Red Heart yarn and the colors look really great together.

Baby Tychus Hat
I had decided to give the Tychus Hat to Brian's Brother-in-Law and I thought it would be cute if they had a matching hat to fit their son. So, using the same yarn and much smaller needles (2s), I made the Baby Tychus Hat. It took FOREVER! Knitting worsted weight yarn on size 2 needles is not something I plan on ever attempting again. But the hat was so cute once it was finished.

I made my first pom-pom to go on the peak of the baby hat.

Heather's scarf
I had some purple yarn that just called out "Heather" to me. So, I made Heather a scarf with it. I learned 2x2 ribbing and added fringe on both ends. I gave it to her for her birthday and she loved it.

I have made three dishcloths with the same pattern and cotton yarn. The first was orange and beige. The second, orange and green. The latest is red and green for Christmas. It's intended to be a gift for my mother's pedicurist. That's the one in the photo.
