Various Christmas knitting...like hats.
Those two balls of Katia Mexico have been knitted up into hats. I'll let my therapist choose one of these, and not sure who gets the other one yet.
I liked working with the Mexico. I made the same pattern as Matt's Hat, but cast on 80 on 5mm 16" circs. I worked a garter ridge every five rounds or so, and shaped the crown after 6" of hat. I divided the crown into 8 sections of 10 stitches for shaping.
And a scarf...
Four balls of elann.com's Cuzco. This is a total comfort object since Cuzco is superbulky baby alpaca. I knitted it up wide in garter stitch. It can be a scarf, a head wrap, or laid doubled over the lap (and petted often). I'm going to give it to my younger sister for Christmas.
I want about a dozen warm wooly sweaters to help me survive this freakin' cold weather, so that's why I'm knitting a worsted weight cotton sweater. Hmmm...
I can't help it. My fingers just love the way this cotton/rayon blend just slides on through. This is the Berroco Touche, and it is so soft and nice. I'm blending two patterns and a few ideas of my own (hopefully) to achieve what is in my head. I want a long-sleeved ribbed pullover with a very deep-V neckline, and maybe a hood. If I don't run out of yarn.
I have a billion other things on the go or waiting in line, but this is what's going on this week.
