Hat 143

This is Lion Brand's Vanna Choice yarn in Denim mist and Seaspray mist.  The design on the yarns make the hat looks like it has a bit of texture.

Hat 141

Hat 141 is the Easy Sideways Hat by Lion Brand yarn using 2 strands together.  I used Red Heart With Love yarn in Deep Blues and Pewter. The result came out much better than I expected!  I think I'll try adding the Pewter yarn to some other hats I make to see if it give it that same shimmer like look.

Hat 140

For hat 140 I used Bernat Baby Soft yarn and Homespun yarn.  Since the yarns were chunky i used a DC stitch so it wouldn't be too hot to wear.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today I'm heading to the hospital to drop off my 25 hats and some scones for the nurses!  Happily I was able to finish my quota in time!  Happy Birthday Mom.

Hat 139

My New Year's Resolution for this past year was to learn knitting.  I had tried learning through online and books but I just wasn't getting it.  A friend also wanted to learn so we took a class at a local Yarn shop called Yarn Story.  This was my first piece and hat I made using knitting.  Though I like the look a lot, knitting takes much longer than crochet so not sure how many hats I'll be knitting in a future.  Maybe just a couple here and there for fun, but in general I think I'll stick to crochet.

This hat was knit using Vanna's Choice yarn in Seaspray.  I think I like the color for this particular yarn better in knit than crochet.  The brim I crocheted on because I hadn't mastered anything other than basic knitting skills at the time.

Hat 138

For hat 138 I used Vanna's Choice Yarn in Autumn and Espresso in DC and HDC stitch.  This hat looked so cute when I tried it on, that I made an exact duplicate for myself!

Hat 137

I used some Vanna's Choice yarn for hat 137 along with some soft pretty pink fuzzy yarn.  This year I tended to make most of my hats a little bigger than usual.  I'm hoping I didn't make them too big!
