Tag Archive: Hat Huggers


This


I finally finished needle knitting this hat. Rather than straight knitting the whole of the cap, I added a bit of texture by knitting left-handed or a few rows of purls. The last picture is the instructions a friend typed for me.

Finished Friday


Yep, I finished another pair of socks. These are the same pattern as I posted last Friday. They are all the same yarn and color though the cell camera just doesn’t capture them the same. They are now in the donations bag.

There was enough of that yarn left over to make these cute booties on the KB fine-gauge baby bootie loom. Two-by-two cuff, German rows heel, drawstring toe.

Then I started missing making the dolls so I made another. I made him a little longer in the legs and arms than I usually do. I think I like that better. My biggest mistake was not stuffing the whole doll and then sewing closed. I tied the neck first but that makes the head too wrinkly. Note to self: don’t do that next time.

The basic instruction for these dolls are in this tutorial:

How was your week? Have a great weekend and Happy Labor Day!

Finished Friday


This week started with a pair of unmatched socks. I didn’t realize it until I took the picture. I kept rearranging until they ‘looked’ matched. But one cuff was two inches longer than the other.

So I tried to think how I could donate, with clear conscience, to my charity. I couldn’t. I thought maybe I should keep them for myself. Nah. So I went through all the yarn hoping to find more of the same color. So lucky to find more. Now the challenge was to make another perfectly unmatched pair.

I did it!

These are the same colors. The cell didn’t photograph these very well. Sorry.

Now I can donate happily! And I think I have enough leftover for one more pair!

These are on the KB Sock 2 loom. It is a larger gauge which makes it great for single strand worsted weight yarn.

The pattern is found in the package. I revised a bit to something like this:

Two-by-two brim (2″ and 4″ respectively) an inch of flat stitch, then heel, then 6 1/2″ e-wrap, then toe.

I love making socks!

One bit of a compression sock. The compression is the tighter stitches at the ankle and at the toe. It is quite comfortable. I made it on my new KB Sock 2 that my brother bought for me.

This pair of wool ankle socks I made on a small gauge, CinDWood, 56 peg loom.

I love this loom most of all of them. The pattern is adapted from the many that are on the packages of the other looms, and many I found online. Two by two Knit/Purl brim. a couple inches for the ankle, then the heel decreases and increases per foot size. Then about 6 1/2 inches for the next part, just straight flat knit. The toe matches the heel. These were fun and easy and I am wishing I could keep these but all the socks pictured here were with donated yarn so these will be donated to our charity Hugger Hats.


Well, how shall I frame this? Though this prompt by Linda G. Hill is meant to bring about some creative writing, I find myself lost in a different kind of yarn. The knitting is done on a round frame with pegs all around. Actually, a KB loom. It made a hat slightly smaller than what would be comfortable for me. I’m passing it on to the Hat Huggers. I think it would be a nice soft hat for a chemo patient. I know I have nearly drooled at the softness of the Bernat yarn. So I think I will make myself a hat for this winter with the bigger KB loom. Here’s the finished product:

The pictures seem drained of color. Picture a cantaloupe for that pinkish part. Next to the face is a rind green. The yellow is brighter, too. At least the softness shows up.

Today we discovered Shadow Hunters on Hulu. That has kept me busy all day, knitting and watching. It’s a fun show similar in nature to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Not much gore. Just characters growing into their places. I think others might like it.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll list some of my latest binges and see what others think of them. Hope everyone had a nice Saturday/weekend.


Sorry to non-yarners, but when I feel challenged I answer the call. Today I started a lavender lovey Blanket double toy. The blanket itself takes a couple days of constant counting. The acorn pattern is fairly simple, if you pay attention. ADD makes that hard so I have tricks to help me stay on track. I had to print out the pattern and Mark where I was at all times. I had to put a marker at the beginning of each set so I could count rows to be accurate. My first try at the blanket, I had to rip it all out as I blogged a few days ago. It is the bind-off that gives me the most trouble. The one I shared two days ago I made with the drawstring bind-off. I figured the crochet border hides the sin. Today I took my time to listen to Denise’s tutorial. It turned out so nice I didn’t want to put the border on. But tightening the loose loops is always hard for me. It took three hours to get it done. Here’s the blanket without a border.

Here’s with the border.

And here’s more of the project I need to assemble tomorrow.

I used the safety eyes instead of sewing them.

Since I’m posting from my phone I’ll ask that you look to yesterday’s post or Loomahat.com for the tutorial.

I hope you’re all having a great week and weekend!

Finished Project


One side is a doll, the other a little lamb. Now I want to make more of these! LoomaHat’s tutorial can be found here.

Try Two


After frogging, I started working on the project again.

Now I just need to see it together. The border still isn’t perfect, but I plan to make more and, well, practice makes it!

Finished Friday


Well, one more baby hat to send to our charity:

20190705_125852

I loved the yarn. So soft. I think it is [edit: Caron Dazzle Aire]. I used the baby hat loom from KB. The pattern was simply an inch of two-by-two ribbing (2 knits, 2 purls), the rest flat knit stitch.

Beyond BBQ


While my son made meat barbeque for the other carnivores in the house, I put my vegeburger in the microwave for a minute and continued to finish this:

I’d love to give the pattern but it was kind of freestyle, wing-it hat sized for a small adult or a  large child. I did the brim in garter stitch (Knit a row, Purl a row, etc.) Then flat knit stitch a row, U-wrap a row, e-wrap a row, Purl a row and alternating the rows without paying a lot of attention. It was on the white KB loom, two strands of yarn one olive green the other striated green and beige. I miss socks! Must start a new pair soon!

 

Off topic: Hope your 4th was fun and safe! How many watch the movie every year? (Raising hand) Oh, and I hope all are recovered from the earthquakes today.
