It’s October and I’ve finished the projects on my needles that were taking forever. Now a couple quick Christmas gifts for some of my favorite people. Last year I made two of my nephews quick and simple hats out of bulky yarn. This year I thought I’d make a hat and scarf set for all of my nephews. It’s a basic hat from The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns. The hat seems like it might be small and it’s certainly dense. I think I’ll try larger needles next time.
The scarf is the Mistake Rib Scarf from Purl Soho. I’m using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick on US 11. This thing is super squishy and super thick. On the 11s it’s a little stiff. I’m hoping it will be okay for my youngest nephew. It will most certainly be warm. For the next scarf I will be moving to size 13. Maybe it will loosen it up. Hopefully it will still be just as warm and squishy.
What do you have on your needles today?
