Starting Over

I ripped out the first attempt at this hat design I'm working on because it was too big even though I did a Swatch. Plus, I didn't like the reverse stockinette stitch.  The second time I did the ribbing in a US 7 and the body in a US 8.  I'm not going to kid you it was painful since it was almost finished. But, worth it to get a Design I'm happy with. Needless to say I LOVE this Malabrigo Rios yarn!  The yarn and the hat sample will be at The Little Knittery when we reopen in September.

Starting a New Sample for The Little Knittery

I knit a lot of samples for The Little Knittery and this is the one I'm starting today. Our customers like to see how the yarn knits up. I'm dong a very long scarf and it's meant to be a year round accessory, almost like a piece of jewelry.

welcome 2017

Well 2016 was a rough year! But hope reigns eternal is something I always say to myself.
I have been working 6 days a week at The Little Knittery in Atwater Village, Ca 6 starting the first week in December and now with  Pussy Hat Project which was originated at the shop my original schedule has remained the same and the closer we get to The Woman's March on Washington the more knitters come in to buy pink yarn to knit hats and the more donated hats come in. 
I have only had time to knit 5 hats but I am happy I could knit those! I used Marabrigo Rios and stock to the original Design.
