Like the recent big holiday that just passed by, I must have made about 11+ gifts. Family and friends were pleased with what they received but, eventually they could not hold in what they really wanted to ask. You know;
I don't think that my family or friends are ungrateful, I think they just like the idea of having gifts handmade for them. My handmade gifts.
My daughter relayed the message that "Grandma" says she wants lots of hat and scarf sets in all styles and colors. My daughter and I looked at each other and burst out laughing. "Wow" was all I said.
When I spoke to my Mom, I told her I was making her a slouch hat and had to explain it to her. "It's beret like, it hugs like a regular hat but slouches a bit." She told me that as long as it hugs her ears, who cares.
Here is my pal Erin modeling it. I really like it and as I say for EVERY project I do;
This picture of Erin enlarged shows the blue and cables really well
This is a fun and easy pattern but I kept asking myself, why didn't Debbie write the pattern for circulars or dpn's. Does anyone have any idea ?
In any case, I may knit the next one in the round.
After drooling over Ravelry FO's of the Celtic Cable Neck warmer, I have finally begun one for myself. Oh, I love it. Just one simple strip of cable. This weekend I shall search for buttons. I have in mind nice wooden ones. We'll see.
I'm making this in the Wool Ease Fisherman's wool. I guess this is just a Lion Brand post today !!!
