It's All About The Blues

I made this hat for my sister by her request. It is the Snowboarder Hat that Rocks you can find the pattern here. I do love free patterns and since this is made with bulky yarn it was fast! Sis bought the yarn which was super soft and squishy. Plymouth Yarn, Baby Alpaca Grande Hand Dye, used 1.25 skeins in the Turquoise color. I am also working on these socks. The Waving Lace Socks from Interweave Press Favorite Socks. A close up of the lace detail. I like socks with a pattern they go faster for me I think than plain knit ones.

The big Thanksgiving holiday is coming up soon and I have to finish the sweater for my dad. I'm off to get working on that. Keep on knitting!

I'm loving those socks - one of these days I'll try something other than my fave Classic Socks pattern!

Yeah, pretty! Thank you. I can't wait to try it on.

Hi Senja, Love the socks! Some of my favorite colors. Is this your own dyed yarn? Hope all is well with your family. We have been swamped with work and with home projects. I hope to see you again soon though:)
