Archive for the ‘Mom’s Hat’ Category


I have FO’s! Just some small simple ones, so they get combined into one post. First up! A baby hat in Berroco Comfort. Love this yarn! It will probably be a baby knits favorite. The color options are great, and despite being a bit splitty, it didn’t squeak will knitting so that’s a plus.

Next – Mom’s Hat. Simple 2×2 rib in Bernat Natural Blends Cashmere. I thought this would be a good washable yarn, after using it, I don’t think it was any softer than Caron’s Simply Soft and I think it squeaked more. I wont be using it again. That said, it did make a nice set for my Mom.



These dishcloths were for my Ravelry Missouri Fiber Fiends dishcloth swap. So far I’ve never found a better pattern for variegated dishcloths than Grandma’s Favorite. Simple, fast and shows off the colors the best.

When I was home over Thanksgiving my mom requested a knit hat for my Grandpa. Due to his cancer treatments he’s having hot flashes so a hat is a nice easy way to help. He doesn’t like wool, so I went with Bernat Denim Style, 70% acrylic, 30% cotton. I think it made a nice simple hat. Here’s my Dad modeling it. 🙂 This is the only picture I got of it.

IMG_0625WiP it Wednesday! Whoot Whoot! Just trying to liven things up around here. The WiPs aren’t very exciting but I thought if I get you WiPed into a frenzy before we start you might not notice. 🙂

First up Mom’s hat. Not very exciting 2×2 ribbing in Bernat Natural Blends Cashmere, same as the mittens.

A baby hat in Bernat Comfort. Technically this isn’t Christmas knitting. But I snuck it in, it’s a small knit.



Soon to be a WiP, my dad asked for a neck wrap for Christmas. I’m not sure what you call it, sort of like a Mobius ring but without the twist? I’m thinking I’ll pick a simple but Manly pattern from a pattern book. Oh and I can’t wait to work with this! He’s one of the few people on the list that doesn’t think wool is itchy so this is Frog Tree Alpaca in fingering weight. Yum!

Another WiP to be, a simple striped hat for a friend.


Christmas WiPs not pictured : A scarf for my Grandma and The Simple Log Cabin Throw for my niece. Then I’ll be done with acrylic for awhile! wooohooo!
