How do you like my newest beanie? Three down and a bunch more to go as my boys' inner circle of friends love these beanies! My husband tried this one and said: "Wow, this is so soft!", so he is getting one, too. This is from the man who cannot understand why one would knit a pair of socks ("If you want a pair of socks, just go buy one" - he doesn't have a clue!).
(Ryan, my 15-year-old, is turning out to be quite the model...)
(Toby the dog wanted some attention, too, and may just get a beanie of his own some day...)
I am enjoying this pattern so much I only look at the directions when I forget the number of rows I need to knit when I change yarn. This beanie is called "Alphie" and I found the pattern in the book "Knit Beanies" published by Martingale (read my original post with the first beanie here). At this rate, it will be a while before I try some of the other patterns I have chosen from this super fun book.
I love this yarn (Deborah Norville's Collection "Everyday" for Premier) but will have to get creative with the color combinations so the beanies won't all look alike.
Now, here is inspiration of the textile kind:
There are fat quarter bundles, yard bundles, half-yard bundles, yardage for backing... As you can see, there is a lot going on here, so stay tuned for more additions and upcoming giveaways.
What have you been up to? Whatever it is, I hope it involves lots of colors... See ya!
