Yes, today is a day of finished objects or things, or let me think, um...things that are finished or almost finished. ;) Cryptic enough for ya!
A couple of FO's with DD as my lovely model. (bribery gets you everywhere with her ;)
Better Bucket Hat (this is the free patterns page, I didn't want to link a pdf file.)
Mods from on Ravelry which consist of casting on only 4 more stitches and brim
increases in decreases spaced over 3 rows instead of 2.
Lorna's Laces Shepard Worsted in Black Watch (I love this superwash yarn! Nice to knit with!)
US 7 & 8 circular
I like the colors and how they didn't pool too bad. This hat and scarf is a gift for my Aunt, who needs hats as she's been through chemo and now undergoing radiation therapy. I'm starting another hat for her this evening.
Well, as you can see, it basically is the same size as my first one.
The difference is supposed to give a tiny bit more flare, which may be more pronounced after I wash/block. If so, I'll get back to you on that.
Quick ole' Biggy scarf
Yeah, so all my bajillion photos in and out of the house stink big time, so well use your imagination...big yarn, big needles and there you have it soft and squishy scarf. Yes, folks I have knit a scarf back and forth...wanna know why..like I said, big needles!
Lion Brand Thick n' Quick (soft for my Aunt and washable too!) in Navy to match bucket hat (yeah, I'm all about being matchy, matchy)
US 17 straight needles, yeah don't faint, I have a few, very few...
Any Super Bulky Yarn
US 17 needles
C/O 12 sts
1 x 1 rib, slipping the first stitch and the next stitch was a purl stitch
Knit desired length or until yarn runs out.
Mine was 58" long pre blocking, and um not getting blocked anyways!
Squooshy and soft even if it is acrylic!
Oh and the almost finished thing I was talking about
DD yesterday early morning....
DD now sans tinsel and now with plastic. (retainers for 4 months) Gorgeous choppers there huh! Oh yeah, and she's cute too ;)
