One more for the road.

04 Jan

Tomorrow I fly back to Austin and try to re-acclimate to work and school. I may go MIA for a bit to recoup. This has been a stressful trip, but certainly a productive knitting one, which was very nice. So here’s one more for the road:

Pattern: “Tundra Hat” from the Knit Knack Kit.
Yarn: Lion Brand Homespun, 98% acrylic, 2% polyester, way less than 1 6oz/185yrds skein
Needles: Size 8 Plymouth 8″ bamboo double points
Notes: Mom liked my hat and wanted one for herself so I whipped one up real quick like out of remains from her sweater. Mr. Bear models so you can get a better look.

Also, check out this amazing Super Mario Bros. scarf. I’m in awe.

    Cute hat! I think I might be embarking on some winter items knitting very soon.
    The scarf is amazing! My son would love to have something like that. (Don’t let him see it! hehe I can’t imagine all that intarsia!)

    That’s a really great hat. I’ve been thinking about making a hat that focuses more on the ears…

    Thanks everyone.
    Katiedid – I think it was duplicate stitch. Just as bad though. I can’t imagine it either!
    Imbrium – I hadn’t, thanks for the link.
