I haven't done one of these posts in a while. It's not that I haven't been knitting, I have! But I had to take a small hiatus when I burned the index finger and thumb of both hands doing something stupid. As the skin healed, I found that the pointy ends of knitting needles wasn't fun to deal with. But I am making up for lost time now. In fact there are two different pairs of socks in the works, but I don't have photos of them at the moment. I do, however, have photos of two recent finishes.
You'll have to pardon the hat, I haven't had time to block it yet. These items were made from the same yarn. This first hat has a doubled brim. I folded a wide brim in half and then picked up the stitches and knit the rest of the hat.
And here is the third skein worked up into another hat. This hat is knit in a K1P1 rib all the way through.
Then I had this somewhat large ball of leftover yarn, so I knit another hat! Don't you love the way the yarn pooled differently in each hat?
The hats are going to the Wounded Knee School in South Dakota. I belong to the For the Children of Pine Ridge group on Ravelry and have found it is a good outlet for my knitting: even the wool items. If you are interested in more information and aren't a member of Ravelry you can email me and I'll fill you in.
I am linking up to Judy at PatchworkTimes for On The Needles Friday.
