Beanie Kick, Continued.

The color scheme of this first one is my favorite. This one is more kid-sized, but if I have enough white Hometown USA yarn, I might make myself one.


This one was going to be for Fizzy, in Collingwood Magpies colors, but it came out rather too long, so I'm gonna make her another this one. This one'll wind up in the shop. :)


This one was just for fun. I really like working with the Hometown USA yarn, whether crochet or Knifty Knitter--one of these days I'll make something with it in real knitting.


One of my first beanies. Not bad, eh?


This one I made long before I got either set of Knifty Knitter circles (just yesterday I got the "perfect for adult hats" ring loom, because of course they wouldn't sell it separately!), because I have so much Hometown USA yarn after taking apart Blankiezilla, since I'm making her a more reasonably sized Tetris blanket out of Caron SimplySoft.


Hope you liked! :)

What to do with this thing?

I found some yarn I'd wrapped up together--left over from the red-white-and-blue fuzzy blankies--but all I had enough for, really...was a brim, and one more row since I knew I wouldn't be able to finish it off with what little give you get after making a brim.


A bowl of some sort, maybe?


What do you think?

More beanies!

I've been listening to lots of audiobooks and podcasts and making these. Yay for fun yarns to play with, and looms! (Not that I'll ever give up crochet. I just have a new shiny.)

Another Waldo Hat. :)

I know, still needs the poofy thing at the top. I haven't found my poof-maker yet, and as you can tell from the last one, jury-rigging the poofs is not my strong suit. ;P

Beanie in progress.



I have a set of four new circle looms, so there will be a bunch of new Knifty Knitter stuff as I play with my new toys. :)

Blue and White Ruffle Scarf

So soft. This one was made with pale blue Caron SimplySoft yarn and white baby yarn.

This scarf, and all the other ruffle scarves, are made this way:

chain 143. Start dc-ing on the 4th ch from hook. dc all the way down the line, [dc2, ch2, dc2] on the last loop and then dc down the other side. Cap the other end the same way and slip stitch to make the rectangle. Then double treble crochet three times in each dc all the way down, [dc2, ch2, dc2] in the corner, 1 dtc in each dc on the skinny side, then [dc2, ch2, dc2], then dtc 3 times in each dc all the way around, capping the same way at the other end and finishing off and tucking in the ends.




It's sooooft.
