Knitting Update

My knitting group is knitting baby hats for our local hospital. We decided to use the same yarn and pattern. We are using TLC Cotton Plus, Lavender. It is perfect. I am writing up a pattern for us to use. As you can see this is not original. I have just adjusted the size of what I normally make for a newborn. I knit quite a few hats a year so I just cast on and go. Once again nothing original.




This lovely Tidepool Heather will become a beret, Gretel by Ysolda and a pair of mittens. I am leaning toward the cabled mittens from Charmed Knits. These will be for my lovely niece's 18th birthday. I have until the end of October to get them knit. Plenty of time.



And this yarn will become...



I am looking forward to casting on for this monster! I love fair isle and it's time to kick it up a notch from hats and mittens to this! Now which to start first!

Wow! Lots of yarn to knit!
I admire your commitment to your local hospital. That's awesome!

I can't wait to see what you will knit first. You have wonderful options. I love the Gretel beret and the mittens. I have never attempted to knit fair isle but I love how it looks. You go girl!!!

Wow! The vest looks intimidating to me, but we will cheer you on! Looks like lots of knitting fun ahead for you!

Hey! I just saw that in your queue and was going to ask you when you planned on casting on... I'm excited for you! I don't have the nerve for something that complex yet...although the hat I made was so much fun (I was listening to great books at the time ) I think I would like to do some more colourwork in the future
