Here it is the Cabled Hat. Here is a picture of me wearing the hat. You can see my forehead, LOL! Well that's it for hats. I did three this winter and I am proud of that. Now I'm going to try my hand at knitting with a crochet hook. I purchased the book Knit 1, Purl 1 in Crochet by Bendy Carter from Annies Attic. Bendy Carter has designed a way to use a crochet hook to get a knitted fabric. So far I have learned the slingshot method of casting on and binding off. I have not made any of the swatches yet. As I learn I will give more details.
On the sewing front,
I have purchased Wendy Mullins' Sew U Home Stretch from Half.com. I wanted to get better results when working with knits. For Spring I plan on doing an all knit wardobe. I have the patterns picked and have been purchasing fabric and I am also using knits that I have stashed. I brought three patterns during the $3.99 sale on McCalls Pattern. I got V1165, V8634, and V8194. I feel my sewing mojo trying to make a comeback.
Until next time, Happy sewing
