This hat looks like a fig.

Made it out of some leftover Cascade 220 wool, my friend gave me. I’ve never knitted with it before and I have to say, I love it! So I hope a babyboy will be born soon to wear this one (I think my friend Esther is having a boy in January, but even she doesn’t know, so it’s more a guess I think)

I love the butterfly stitch, so I decided to do another hat, with this type of stitch. I think it’s quite girlie.

I made this one, ordinary cotton again, because I wanted to practice the jogless joint a little more. It’s lovely. Can’t wait to see it on a baby’s head.

This is the first of a serie of babyhats I made, just ordinary cotton, striped in the round, with a jogless joint. I made it for baby Fiene, but since I haven’t had a change to visit her yet it might be too small already… so I decided to make a few other ones.


Where’s my knittingmojo!? September 3, 2008

Filed under: knitting,Uncategorized — onnanoamimono @ 3:43 pm

A few days ago I lost my knittingmojo and I wanted it back, so I decided to cast on this no-brainer.
The pattern is superfun and supereasy. I casted on on sunday-evening, finished yesterday during my knittingnight. I love it! And it seems like autumn has begun already in Amsterdam, so I might need it soon.

The yarn is handspun and handdyed 100% merino by my friend Zwaalie. I love the way the colors turn into stripes of green. I think I have my mojo back. Sort of…
