Three Odessa Hats

Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I've posted here, but lookee I made another hat trick! These are three Odessa hats. The top hat is made with Lana Grossa Toccata, the middle hat is made with RYC Cashsoft DK, and the bottom is made with RYC Cashcotton DK. I gave away the top two to friends and chose to keep the green hat for myself! :)

If you'd like to read more, my blog is here.

Happy Knitting, everyone! Here's to warm heads!

Four new hats

These are a few of the hat & scarf sets I've been making for the homeless veterans' shelter in Detroit. Back in August, on my blog, I mentioned the generous donation of the large cones of machine knitting yarn to our group. I've finished almost 30 sets in all but these four give a good example of the way that the yarns can combine to make very distinct sets. I'm working with three or four strands at a time and using a size 13 circular for the hat and a size P hook for the matching crocheted scarves.
