Knitting update

August 23rd, 2013

I am at sea, you are where ever and not everyone cares about knitting. I would rather knit than pack, but it is not like there are a lot of choices should I want to get off the ship tomorrow with all of my stuff.

The great thing about not having any household things to do at all is the amount of knitting that one can accomplish

Three hats

Three hats

The first thing to mention is that I am knitting a lot of hats. These three were the first but certainly not the last

The baby hat is off the Hitchhat pattern

As is the rose pink cotton hat for the 2 year old sister of the above baby

about size 2-3

about size 2-3

And then I switched my attention to a simple striped hat (2×2 ribbing, then the body in 7/1 ribbing)

which will fit over dreads

Since the Maus likes bright colors – I knit her first a simple cap out of Zauberball singles then went on to start a Cayenne.

The project that actually took the longest was the smaller size of the Ribboned Baby Jacket (instead of the baby surprise because my book has been borrowed and not returned so I didn’t have that pattern on hand).

The jacket is knit all in one piece with some short rows.

There is more, but I think this post has gotten long enough!

    Cayenne is very nice. The cables are great, the shape is great, and the color is pretty.

    Love the baby Hitchhat Holly. After seeing the others you made I suggested the pattern to a woman who knits nothing but hats and gives them all away. She was delighted to have something new to try. If you come across anything else like that please let me know!
