Three hats for The Ships Project

After wrestling with the Tychus cap pattern, on Knitty, I modified it to a shorter style that I could knit on size 10s without making it oversized. It came out perfectly by casting on 31 stitches, then making the short rows over 14. I was really happy with the results, especially using the gray and red Simply Soft.

The one in the middle is my "mistake" cap with a seed stitch cuff. All three are bound for The Ships Project.

So, it's three hats that make a hat trick, right? Fun!

floral headband...

I finished this for a salon owner up in indy...figured I would share it

Noro is quite a yarn for a panta.

These Pantas remind me of "bucket hats" are those at all popular anymore? The hats that came out with no tops to them? Right. Showing my age, sorry.

Yarn: Noro Kureyon Color #159, Lot A using US 5 Needles.

Blogger's acting rather badly...sorry if I'm stepping on the sidebar...I can't fix seem to fix it...

I just finished this baby hat for a friend who is due in August. It matches a sweater I finished last week. I used Moda Dea Sassy Stripes in Crush. I am so proud to have earned my 5th hat trick! I had such a mental block about using DPN's and for the longest time had convinced myself that I couldn't. But finally I took the plunge and gave it a try.....and here I am 15 hats later, all made with DPN's!!

A few more hats done

Just a few basic hats I got done in the last few weeks! We have the basic Cable hat 2 of my version of Odessa, a simple rib hat and, the simplest hat of all pattern. That makes 19 hats total!

Lil' Greenie

Hi everyone, long time no write, sorry. I did, however, FINALLY finish the LITTLE version of the ginormous (for a 3 yr old) hat that I'd lamented about last time. Here they are together as, um, yeah, they look exactly alike:
My 36 yr old housemate is the proud owner of the too-large one, and the lil' guy is off to Wisconsin with his blue and red brother. Yipee!!! If anyone is interested in making something similar, I've posted the pattern I used (my own) on my blog, here.

So this makes 2 hats and a panta, woo hoo, a hat trick!

Cotton hats

This was my first attempt at just knitting hats without patterns. They're for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will need extensive chemo. The pink one is a bit large (cast on 110) the green is a little better (cast on 95). They went really quick and I like the stripes. These were knitted with Cotton Tot's from the brim up.
