Hats...

I've put my second pair of knucks on hold and have been working on hats, hats, more hats! I'm going to a show in September and I'm planning on bringing a bunch of hats for my friends. Here are a few so far.

And the crocheted hats..... I've used a few different patterns, now. These first two hats are the same pattern and the last one is a different one. Also, the final hat's brim looks odd because it needs to be blocked. It was folded up in a bag because I finished it on vacation.

Hello knitter chicks....

Just a brief update! I'm currently working on my next pair of knucks FOR ME of course :) And I haven't quite finished the first pair, OF COURSE! The first pair...I still have to finish up between the fingers on the first one and finish the cuff on the second (and between the fingers of that one too). Still, they are almost finished and I'll finish and wont leave it a UFO.

second pair...
I stopped into my lys which is actually not the closest to me but has the best selection of delicious yarns. It's also on Main Street and I can never find parking which is why I choose to rarely drive over. I wonder how much business they actually lose because of this, you know? I've gone over before, drove around and couldn't find parking so I'd leave. This time I had just been to the shoe store with my mom and kids in the same area so I had my mom drop me off and I thought I'd run in. I wanted to get some of the felted tweed that was used in the actual pattern and I wanted a green color. I ended up getting that as well as some 'cashcotton' and I'm currently using this. It's a yummy fiber. I got it in a beigy color and wish they had it in a tweedy black kinda color. Perhaps they do online...in the shop they only had pastels.



And I had also tried my hand at amigumuri (spelling waaaay off) for friends who were expecting. I had heard that the Dad to be loved teddy bears. I don't love this bear...it needs way more color. It's a fun little pattern though....Stitch and Bitch Crochet, Happy Hooker. I'm going to remake him but here he is. He matches a hat I made last year so I put it on him :)

One down...

Ok, I finished one knuck already! Ok, that's a lie. I still have to finish between the fingers and sucessfully hid all the stray yarns for your viewing pleasure! :-) I couldn't get a decent picture wearing the thing because in truth, it's about the right size for the abominable snowman...or my husband. Either works ;)

knuck, knuck, knuck....






i'm making these...Love the pattern!

First one is huge. I'm making the large for a man and have yet to have hubby try it on. Definitely not a difficult pattern at all. I'll post a pic when I'm done. Im planning several more of these. One for me, one for a rocker boy and I'm trying to think of a witty thing to put on the knuckles besides something dirty. Ahem. Actually...well, if anyone has any cool ideas, that'd be great.

All I'm coming up with is ROCK STAR
