I wanted to share a few projects that I had fun knitting over the last few months. I tend to only work with one color so two of these projects were a little out of my comfort zone but I am now completely hooked on color work and fair isle!
I was super happy with how the Peacock Hat turned out. It’s always a treat to knit something for myself. It’s super warm for my morning walks and I adore the pattern.
I made a pair of fingerless mitts for Hannah for Christmas. I have knit many a pair of these. They are quit and easy. The pattern is from this book.
Norah requested the Baa-ble hat for Christmas. How cute are those sheep?! Now she wants the matching cowl.
She also asked for white mittens like the ones from this book. I knit her up a pair of Antler mittens.
Next up…. a fair isle sweater for ME!
Hi Amy, your knits are beautiful! I’d love to make a pair of the fingerless mittens, however it seems the link is to the Baable hat. Would you be able to provide the link to the book you mentioned?
Also, I’m so happy to see you writing more regularly again. I find your blog very inspiring. Thanks so much!
Hi Alli, thanks for the heads up, the link is all fixed. So glad you enjoy visiting this little space:) Happy knitting!
Hi Amy, I have been enjoying your blog for quite some time and not sure if I’ve ever introduced myself. I’m Anna and live in Seattle, WA. I looked up the peacock hat and noticed that you opted not to add the pom pom and wonder if you also altered the height of the hat? Yours turned out perfectly in my opinion!
Hi Anna, Thanks for visiting me here! I opted out of the pom pom because my husband, Chris said he really liked it without one and I agreed! Believe it or not I did not alter the pattern but I do like how mine turned out shorter. Not sure why though. The one in the pattern does appear much longer and slouchier. Just luck I guess or maybe the one from the pattern is shown worn a little father back on the head? I like my hats worn down low over my ears;) I am knitting my sister one now for her birthday but with a different color way.
