I started hat number 2 last night after work, it's for Dave again he requesed another hat in different wool and colours. I'm using two strands of double knit wool which isn't as bulky as the last hat which was two strands of aran (super toasty). I'll probably get it finished tonight. I reckon I'll return to the half finished sleeve of my jumper I really need to complete my 1st jumper, I started it in Feb!!

I've created a list of what I need to make before Christmas!! So this wkend I plan to make two hats and finish one arm of my never ending jumper project. I also have one gauntlet glove nearly finished. I tend to have 2 or 2 projects happening at once. Here is another project I plan to do when I have time:)

Stripey Hat done!

I finished Dave's hat on Wednesday eve, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I'm gonna make another one in different colours and maybe just in bulky wool instead of knitted double with aran, it would make it easier and quicker to finish. It's knitted in an alpaca/wool blend so it's toasty warm:) I might make a trip to the wool shop this afternoon , want to make a few as christmas pressies:)

I started the stripey hat project! Just as I got to the end of the decreases it started to get near impossible to knit in the round. So I decided to change to DPN's, then I suddenly realised I don't have 6.5mm double pointed needles:(  I've put out a call requesting a loan from  fellow knitters (my boyfriends mum and aunt), fingers crossed someone has them , if not I'm off to the wool shop.
Besides that I'm pretty happy with it so far, it's lovely and chunky, and the colours are great:)
