New Knitting Projects

January 15, 2009

So I dug out my ancient digi-handheld camera from 2001. It’s not my favorite thing in the world, but it works.

So I thought I’d show off some knitting projects. I found a great pattern for a garter striped beanie hat with a raglan-style decrease at the crown. I love this decrease because it makes the seams into diminishing square shapes instead of rings on top of the head. JT says it looks less girly that way. Can I just say that this kid is PICKY with a capital P!!

Here’s the first hat I made him, turns out he didn’t like the “baby blue” color in the stripes, so Joel and I wear it, it’s a little small for us, good thing that cotton garter stretches so much, still a little short though.

So then I made this one, which he loves. When I bought the yarn, I didn’t notice that the colors in the patterned yarn wouldn’t stripe, so I was a bit worried, but JT thinks it looks like camouflage so he’s actually loving it. Took some photos of him showing it off too.

As you can see, I lost count of my rows and changed colors on the wrong side, but oh well, it still looks kinda cool.

And here’s the leggings I finished for Lulu forever ago. She loves these things, I’ve started her a hat to match, should be done in a couple of days 🙂
