Fall has officially arrived and I am happy that the weather is starting to cool off. This weekend I decided I needed a project so I decided to sew new pillow covers for my sofa.
Today’s knitting project is darling little doggie. While he is not for sale, if he was sitting in the store window, he would not last long. Everyone would want to take him home! Continue reading “How much is that doggie in the window?”
Today’s knitting project is a football inspired hat for a little boy. With a family of girls, I don’t often get to knit for boys, but I have had my eye on this pattern for a while. With a small amount of yarn, this hat knitted up super quick. Continue reading “Football Hat”
To complete the Racing Horse scarf and hat set, I also knitted a pair of fingerless mitts. Unlike the first two projects, the mitts are not double knit. They are only one layer with a smaller version of the checker-board.

One day I stumbled upon a hat that was a perfect match. Rosemary Brock had designed a hat that matched the ends of my scarf. Her free pattern and instructions can be found here.
No surprise to my regular readers, I modified the pattern just a little. Instead of following the instructions, I casted on 80 stitches of each color, and worked both sides of the hat simultaneously like I did with the scarf. Continue reading “Double Knit Hat”
