Big Monster's New Hat

I haven't shared any knitting in a while and since I have a few minutes to myself I thought I'd show off my new design. My son's new Chunky Ribby Beanie. The decreases are done in a way to keep the integrity of the rib all the way to the top. Turned out very nice. I hade it from Knitpicks Wool of the andes bulky in the flyfishing colorway.

I am now working on a smaller one for the little monster and the colors are pooling in a swirlin pattern. Very interesting. :) I'll share photos of that one when I am done.

Hope everyone had a wonderfull holiday season and have a safe and happy new year.

Holiday knitting

I've been busy making scarflettes and cowls for the holidays. So much faster than regular scarves and they don't fall off your neck!

I've been getting my inspiration from and sellers like this. Of course, I have been crocheting some too. Some of my favorite Etsy sellers are Boutique Pink, Tortoiseshell Bunny, and Fringe. So if you see any of these styles on me, you know where I got the idea.

Happy knitting and happy holidays everyone! Hope to see you when things slow down.
