One of my oldest friends had her first baby last week and I of course had to knit baby Harper a beanie! I wanted a quick and easy project and found one on Redheart. I found this Garter Stitch Baby Hat which had a little bit different look and technique.
I had the hardest time trying to figure out the twisted cord, but with a little help from the boyfriend we had it completed in no time.
On to make a cowl – for ME this time. I’m DYING for this Blue Denise Interchangeable Knitting Needles Set! I think that it will make any and every knitting project easy to complete at my fingertips!!!
This time of year everywhere you go in West Michigan everyone is wearing a beanie. My boyfriend seems to have recently become obsessed with them. Nearly every day he points out a beanie and asks, “can you make that?” Of course I can, but I haven’t, until now!
This is a beanie knit on a circular needle. It can be a bit tricky to get the feel to knit on a circular needle, but one you get the hang of it, it actually goes rather fast.
The rings you see are stitch counters which allows you to know where you are without counting.
I haven’t felt very motivated to knit the last few days, I’ve been reading a ton on the Kindle I got (from the boyfriend) for Christmas. This project has been hanging over my head for the last two weeks so I know I must finish it ASAP to get to a cowl I’ve been dying to make.
Pictures of the completed beanie to come soon (*fingers crossed*)
