A couple of weekends ago was our Thanksgiving holiday and I spent the week prior cleaning house and bedrooms. All the family came home for dinner and a good time was had by all.
My daughter requested a hat knit by grandma for Chase. Hard to believe that he’s turned 1 year old already. Anyhow I searched Ravelry and came up with a nice pattern by At Home Mommy Knits.
I didn’t bother using the lovely motif that was part of the hat as the yarn I had was interesting all by itself. I do think that I’ll have to give this pattern another try maybe for next year as it looks so cute.
The yarn was one I picked up at Value Village so no doubt it’s no longer in existence. It was made in New Zealand and it tickled my fancy that I was using yarn from the other end of the world. I was surprised that it only took one 50g ball. I haven’t knit that much with double knit but I guess a ball goes a long way, nice stuff but took forever to knit.
Now I have to get back to quilting my Christmas and baby quilts. Not sure when those will be done but I have many projects to get done for Christmas so I’d better get at it. Who knows I might even get them done on time this year.
