Vintage Yarn + Hat Experimentation

I’ve been tweaking a hat pattern to come up with something new knitters can make on circular needles.  Most of my beginning students don’t want to work on a project that needs seaming up when the knitting is finished.  Many of my beginners would like to try circular needles………..as well as move on to making a hat instead of being stuck in the ‘scarf knitter only’ category.

I’ve made up 5 of these hats over this past holiday week.  An easy project, uses a minimal amount of yarn and is a great transition project for people who request a class to move beyond scarves.

I love this version, using a vintage mohair yarn I have been wanting to “play” with.  So much going on with this yarn, it needed a very simple pattern so it could show off on its own.

I’m anxious for some of my new knitting students to give this a try!

Just listed this sparkly number here in my Etsy shop!

Are you finished with all the last minute details for your holiday celebration?  Hopefully, you are, and can take time to ponder what the holiday means to you.

I always enjoy a bit of quiet time at this time of year…….taking stock of the previous year and looking forward to the possibilities of the New Year.

Happy Holidays to you & yours!

Fall = Scarves at Stitchknit

I’ve switched to turbo knit speed here at Stitchknit.  Fall arrived and I wanted to make some new items that were floating around in my head as ideas.  I hadn’t worked with huge needles for years & decided to give them a try again, to get something very chunky looking but truly lightweight…….

Light as air, bright red cowl

Cozy cowl.....warm, yet lightweight

And, since September is Nat’l Sewing Month, I have a stack of fabric slated for scarves too!  Here is the first one …………

Lightweight, extra large scarf......in a brilliant shade of orange!
