As you can see by the dates in the pictures they were begun in
The colors, at least the purples are well represented in this picture. The pinks just didn't want to show up!
My daughter Grete needed a new winter cap. I was so diligent in getting it made in the first week of November (before Karin's recital) that I missed taking a picture. This cap of Encore DK weight in black, is made using a cable-brim...the pattern is one of Knit Picks' free ones.
The original pattern used worsted weight, so I revised the pattern for DK weight. This took just less than one skein, about 135 yards.
I'm hoping that tomorrow is a brighter day so I can take a picture or two of the stack of baby hats I made. A missionary (pediatrician in Nepal) visited us the first weekend in November and talked about the need for hats at the hospital where she works. I have a dozen hats, various sizes, that I've made since then with Bernat's Baby Jacquard yarn using Lion Brand's Preemie S0 Soft pattern. Some sizes (most of them) were extrapolated from the original, increasing stitch counts by multiples of 6, and increasing the lengths accordingly. There are no pictures of these hats in progress so I know they won't count, but they are really cute. The yarn makes up well and is so very soft.
