I know I need to be working on my holiday knitting, but some winter hats needed to be made too. These 3 were made over the past week. The blue hat is for my oldest ds, using Knitpicks Swish Superwash yarn in the color Delft Heather. The little hat in the middle is for baby Talia (my 6 week old niece). I used the Odessa hat pattern from Magknits , omitting the beads, and using Cherry Tree Hill Supersock potluck yarn on size US3 dpn's. It looks teeny, but it stretches. A LOT. So, she'll get at least one winters use out of it. The pretty hat on the right is for me. I used the Fake Isle Hat pattern from Magknits, with Noro Silk Garden (#205) and Patons Classic Merino in Black. I still have 2 more hats to make (at least), One for DS#2 and one for DD.
and no, I didn't completely ignore my holiday knitting while working on the hats. I did complete a few rows on the throw for my parents and I finished the leg and started the heel for sock #2 for the baboons ass socks I'm making for my sister.
