Hats and Baby Sweaters!

Very interesting day yesterday as blogger was down. Knitting at Read's last evening was great fun a dear old friend joined us for a few minutes of catching up.Hey Theresa T.!

JoAnne made a few hats for holiday gifts and they are smashing. Good job JoAnne and thanks for sharing.

Therese had made a few items for her DD as baby presents for her then unborn child. Her DD had a boy, Samuel on Friday past. Here are the pictures she took of the dresses before they were off to MontrĂ©al.  Both patterns are from 'Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders' The dress uses Noro Silk garden sock yarn, and the vest uses Briggs & Little Tuffy Canadian sock yarn. Congratulations! Felicitation! To Therese and family.

So cute Noro dresses!

So sweet!

I too have been making hats. The pink hat is a plain bulky knitted hat with a pompom, the grey hat is a free pattern from London Wul and is by Heidi Wulfraat called Twisted Top , the green hat is also a free pattern by Daniella Cortez. It  is found on Ravelry and is called Nature Hike Hat . All are knit with bulky weight yarn and knit up very quickly. The nature hike hat I used pencil roving and spun it a couple of years ago when I first started spinning.

 I started DH's Lopi sweater on Nov. 4th and he is ever so excited!! Lopi knits up so fast. If you are looking for quick knit but nice garments for holiday or winter gifts you may want to consider Lopi patterns. You can also check out DROPS . There are lots of free patterns there.

Today I am teaching at Cricket Cove, Moncton in the morning and evening. Always lots of fun doing my sock classes. Next Wednesday evening will be the Knitting Group at Read's. See you around.
