hats and knucks

Soooo, there hasn't been much posting on this blog lately. As I start to have more time, I will start really switching over. Of course, now that I have really figured out blogger - its time to switch to blogger beta, figures!

This year there are going to be lots of knitted gifts! I have concentrating mostly on hats and knucks with a scarf or two on reserve. These two hats are actually my errand running projects for the last two weeks. Obviously, I am spending too much time at the bank, post office and grocery store. They are both Lornas Laces shepards worsted - black purl and camoflage. These I will sell in my store, so they did not get posted on my other blog, since I lie and tell people that I do not make the hats! This is still the kinda secret blog!

These are the holiday knucks taking shape! The black ones are lorna's laces shepards worsted charcoal. I love how they turned out. I dropped two needle sizes for the cuffs, so the would not be so baggy and it really worked great! The tan are inca alpaca and they have been tough. No give. I made them a size too big accedently - but it turned out to be their saving grace, since they would have been way to small otherwise! No more solid alpaca knucks - not enough give in the yarn, but boy are they soft!! Oh well!

Have a great week!

great hats and love the knucks too. When I switched my blog to the beta version. It was pretty easy. I just copied and pasted things I wanted to keep from my old blog and inserted the info into the new beta sidebar modules. It's a bit time consuming, but it took me less than a day. I wish you luck. And if you need help, let me know and I can try to answer questions.
