Noro Silk Garden Toque

Inspired by the hat worn by Oskar in the movie Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. His was blue. I used exactly one skein of colorway 47.

I was never able to get a view of the the top of the hat. I have not blocked the hat yet. Note to self to go down a needle size or two to make a firmer fabric.

Movie Ticket Bookmark

I had fun creating this "ticket" for a birthday party using a tutorial by Nikola Lazarevic. The tutorial is here. There is so many tools in Adobe Photoshop that I dont' really know how to use! I laminated them and made them into bookmarks. I'm glad some people still read real books.
I also completed some fingerless mitts to go with Mobcap Hat. There is still enough yarn left for something. Bed socks? I'm a little over cowls for awhile.

And the Hats Keep Coming!

I can't stop knitting hats. This one is Mobcap from the Jane Austen issue of Interweave knits. I harvested the Malabrigo Rios, colorway Candombe, from another project as it just screamed to be a Mobcap.
The textured knit band has a nice stretch to it and the hat fit me as written.
My Lacey Ripley is another Ysolda Ripley hat. The handspun alpaca was handyed by Upstream Alpaca on Etsy. my yarn was a bit thin on a size 10 needle and it's a little snug.
White Kitty hat is based on a the pattern Kitty Hat by fluffyhelen from Craftster. I modified to knit it in the round on size 6 and 10 needles. I used Cascade 128 which made for a nice soft hat. The flower was crochet from left over Madelinetosh Vintage.
