I knitted myself a hat using the extra skein of Cascade 128 Tweed bulky weight yarn I had left over from my Pike Place sweater.
I used the free Giftie Slouchie Beanie pattern.
Total Cost: $5.49
This hat took less than three hours to knit and used less than 128 yards of yarn. Best pattern ever? I could make a million of these.
For Christmas my mother bought me a sock knitting book, so I made my first pair of socks! They're the 4x2 worsted weight rib socks.
I used Malabrigo Merino worsted weight yarn that I bought at the Fabric Place Basement in Natick, MA.
Total Cost: $8.80
|Doesn't that look amazing?|
They're wicked warm and they knitted up pretty fast. I could see myself making more socks in the future, for sure.
