Rasta Fleece Hat

And one more hat.. A rasta dread hat.  My husband wanted it.. i'm not sure why, but he's cute, so I made him one.


I have  some fleece scraps left over, and I hate to throw them out, but it isn't enough to do much with. so I think the dog is getting a fleece coat. Maybe the cats will too.

Knitted socks

I finished the socks I made for my Aunt, and mailed them off yesterday. They were supposed to be for Christmas and as much as I procrastinate, since I am only a few weeks late, I am doing pretty good!

I use the two socks on two circs method. I can't handle double pointed needles, If I did one at a time I would never do the second one. And I don't have to count for the second sock, I can just do the same thing on each row, and end up with socks the same size.

I used a worsted weight wool, and size 6 needles, so they are pretty thick and cozy.

And here they are all finished!! I get a kick out of seeing them grow.
