Some Knitting

I haven't posted any knitting in a really long time. I have been knitting, althought not as frequently. But, I just knit the same pattern over and over again (baby cardigan) so it's not so much fun to post.

However, friends gave us some old yarn on Saturday and I couldn't resist the colors nor the size: big, chunky "rug" yarn. The kids and I sat on my bed all Sunday afternoon and this hat materialized. Andrew learned to braid, and to turn skeins into balls. Rachel knitted a doll scarf which is her first completed piece of knitting, and very well done too!

I found a price on some of the yarn -- 37cents! Wonder how long ago that was!

There are some lovely pinks and a bit of chocolate brown that are calling me to be made into a hat for myself. We'll see. I do like this hat pattern as it goes so fast!

Hi Heather,
That is such a great hat - love the colours. Any chance you could email me the pattern? I'm making homemade Christmas presents this year, and that would be perfect for my two nephews in Canada. Especially if it's fast to knit up. :o)
