A Hat, A Shawl & Some Baby Socks

Carmel started out the year knitting fair isle hats, and she’s still doing that, and here it is November now.  She’s even started teaching others fair isle knitting.  Here is her Epistropheid hat by Kate Davies.  I love the way it turned out, and the pom pom is perfection!!

Next up with Sherri, owner of Rainy Day Yarns in Gig Harbor Washington.  Sherri is a knitting machine, all while running a business and taking care of her family.  Here is her Josephina shawl by Amanda Rios in Hula Hut Yarns Luna DK.  This pattern is free on Ravelry.

Finally, I finished two pairs of Lumberjack socks by Tin Can Knits.  Our employee had identical twin girls.  I had always loved this pattern, and thought I’d start small with the baby size and give them a go.  I used Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash.  One was a variegated and a solid.  I did a reverse on the second pair.  It’s wonderful when you can purchase a pattern, and have so many sizes to knit from.  What a value from Tin Can Knits.

 

Epistropheid I & II

Carmel, a constant contributor for America’s Knitting started her own year long fair isle monthly knit-along!  Last month in January of 2018, she had the Norwegian Star hat, and this month of February, 2018, she is doing Kate Davies Epistropheid hat.  Carmel is a dynamo, I’m not gonna lie, so of course she finished her first hat, but loved it so much, she already had the yarn she envisioned for her second hat.  So without further ado, here are her hats I & II!
