FO: A couple of hats, a pair of mittens

Finally, some finished photos!

Pattern: Simple Slouchy Hat
Knitting needles: Size 6 & 10
Size: Large
Yarn: Fisherman's Wool, doubled
Thoughts: Definitely love this hat, even the second time around knitting it. The pattern is so easy, great for TV knitting. The yarn softened up drastically after a good soak. 

Pattern: Urban Necessity Gloves
Needles: Size 6
Size: Medium
Yarn: Fisherman's Wool
Thoughts: These were a pain to knit. They aren't exactly a matching set, perfectly. One cuff is about three rows longer than the other. And one pinky finger is slightly longer. Not sure about the sturdiest of this yarn...

Pattern: Brambles Beret
Needles: Size 4 & 6
Size: Medium
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted
Thoughts: Love the way this hat turned out, however it seems a bit small. I may put it through another soaking and blocking session to see how it turns out. As always, this yarn is pleasantly soft and warm. I'm definitely a huge fan of the malabrigo. The pattern was very well written.

So friends, I'm thinking about going out of my comfort zone, and trying to sell some of my handmade items. I've had the idea running through my head for years but I think the time has come to put it into action. Plus I could definitely use the extra money. We'll see what happens in the future...


  1. These are all so cute! I'm impressed that you're going to sell your handknits... how will you price them? That's the one thing I'm always wary of. I mean, who wants to pay $90 for a pair of socks?


  2. Lina - I am definitely keeping things such as socks, and lace-weight shawls out of the question when considering selling things. Those are far too time consuming to put an affordable price on. :)
