Hot Off the Needles

Our county fair is coming up and I am getting projects ready to enter! I am going to be entering a few knitted things, and I figured I'd knit a hat since they're pretty quick and easy. I'm really excited about this hat because I did a MUCH better job than my last hat. It's the same pattern. I only got off track once when I accidently managed to pick up an extra stitch, but I managed to undo the damage and get back on track!


The yarn is Nashua Handknits Wooly Stripes and the color is "Jungle Green." I love this yarn. I love how the colors just melt into one another! This yarn was given to me by either my Aunt Linda or her friend Debbie when we had our Knitting Weekend. I can't remember who gave it to me, but I love it! I think I even have enough to do a matching pair of mittens, or maybe fingerless gloves. I just found this yarn on sale for a really great price if you're interested!



I can't wait to see how it does at the fair. Even if I don't get a ribbon, I'll love wearing it this winter!

I'll take you up on that Jennifer! Maybe not this particular hat (because you'd have to pry it from my fingers- LOL), but let me know if you really want to do it and I'll knit you one!

Katie I love seeing your work. You damn sure better git a ribbon for that cap. I'll have a word with the judges if not. Love you.
