2 Gray Hats & a Toque

Carmel is cranking out hats.  One she knit on vacation with Dale, one for her nephews birthday and one was a test knit for Jane Richmond in her new book Within written with Shannon Cook.  Here we go…first up the test hat, it’s called Lodge Toque by Jane Richmond, knit with Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool in colors Berry and Chocolat.  You can find this pattern in the new book Within by Jane Richmond and Shannon Cook.

Next we have Carmels Day Beret by Hannah Fettig.  This is the hat she knit on vacation with Dale.  The yarn she used is Plymouth Yarn Worsted Merino Superwash Solids.  You can find this pattern on Ravelry!

And lastely, the  Antler Hat by Tin Can Knits.  Carmel used Cascade Yarns 220 SuperWash for this project.  I love the cables – her nephew is a very lucky guy.

 

Tin Can Knits KAL

Well, we are well underway on our January KAL, which happens to be anything Tin Can Knits!  We are half way through the month and have a few things finished up here.  This is what I know at this point…

KALimageFirst up Gather by Andrea in Laramie, Wyoming!  This hat was ‘suppose’ to be for her, but this little bird has a claim in on it!  Andrea used her Dream in Color club yarn in the December colorway!

Next, is Carmel’s Barley’s.  Carmel runs our Ravelry group and also this KAL.  These are the baby and child sizes for a pair of brothers.  The yellow is Purl Soho Worsted Twist in Yellow Yellow, the blue is Cascade Yarns 220 SuperWash Paints.

Carmel also knit Antler Hat using Cascade Yarns 220 SuperWash for this project!  Way to go Carmel (she’s a dynamo)!! KALimage3

I got in on the action with Main Street, and I love how it turned out.  I’m into the Seahawk fever now, and this was fun to knit along with Fancy Image Yarns DK Superwash in Seahawk!  I’ll be using my cozy on game day for sure~ KALimage4

Carmel is back up with a Gather hat also in Fancy Image Yarns DK Superwash in Seahawk with a huge pom pom on top.  She’s into those now.  I have to say, I’m itching to make one myself – very fun!
