Hat knitting

So I found my yarn and have started making my fingerless gloves.  It’s very exciting.  While at Loopville (which has moved to a larger space in the same shopping center near the Bearden Nama’s), I saw the coolest hat pattern.  I told the lady “I want to make this hat.”  She’s out of the pattern, but will call when it gets in.  I have the yarn already.  Of course, now Nathan wants gloves and a hat to match his awesome scarf.

I think I’ll make him the same gloves I’m making for myself because they look awesome and I’m having a good time making them.  This is the first time I’ve done circular knitting on double sided needles.  It was a trick to figure out at first (my pattern says just to do it, and my book doesn’t discuss circular knitting at all), but I think I’ve got it!  I’m almost to the cabling part, though.  Oooh!  Scary!  I did do some circular knitting on circular needles when I was first learning to knit and was playing with some old yarn.  I’m doing the cabled gloves that Elizabeth suggested.  I also love the seashell gloves, but they were just a bit intimidating for my first time.  I’ll try those next time.

As for the hat, I went to go find a pattern, and found all kinds of good stuff!  I think I may need a dozen hats to get myself through the winter.  And, Dad, I promise I’m working on your blanket too!  🙂  I’m going to make this hat for Nathan: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTtychus.html

Then I’ll make these hats for me (or someone lucky enough to convince me to share)  🙂



Oh, and I also found some AWESOME sock patterns.  I will be making these as well:
