My yoga

I'm currently working on making a hat for a friend from a book I recently purchased while at Border's the other day. 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. They are mostly accessories which usually take just one skein to make anyway so it's basically a book of patterns for socks, mittens, hats and baby items and the like. So I decided on the "Between Seasons Hat" pattern which wants you to knit the cable band first, seam it and then pick up stitches for the rest of the hat. So far, I've finished the band. I'm making mine out of Brown Sheep's Cotton Fleece on size 6 needles.

I've also finished up a pair of toasty socks to wear around the apartment. They are knitted tightly on size 3 needles to make it wear longer. They're great in Paton's Classic Worsted Weight wool.

These are great! My wife just finished a pair of socks for herself - a huge achievement because she attempted before and couldn't get around the heel. Now she's making our daughter a pair of socks and they are SO LITTLE!

Hi Dan!
Knitting socks can get tricky especially during the heel process, but once you get the hang of it you want to keep making them.

This is pretty fantastic V. I don't know if I would have the patience to try this, so i give you a ton of credit. Nothing like having your own, stylish, handmade clothing!

Thanks Steve, it's fun for me. I love seeing string become something someone can wear.
