ho ! ho ! ho !


yes, that's me, incognito ... i finished knitting this little stocking cap at work today, but brought it home to block. it just needed a little touch up with the steam iron, as it's knitted in encore dk (an acrylique & wool blend). it's a really cute hat, knitted in the round from the top down ... cabin fever #115.

and other stuff that's not for me ...

the client's attempt
remaking of a stocking


christmas stockings! i am making two stockings on commission. the client has been working on these off and on for four years, and decided that it's just not going to happen unless she has someone else do it. that's where i come in. i am using her materials, and a few of my ideas, to remake these stockings. the original pattern is published in a leaflet by nicky epstein. though i would have not picked these yarns, it's a fun challenge.

the top picture is of the client's progress ... i'm knitting it in the round as seen in the bottom photo.

Uh oh. I see more stocking caps in my future! I've had my eye on Cabin Fever's Gaugeless Hat #106 for awhile, a shorter, apparently similar, version of your stocking cap. You've knit so many nice socks lately...just doing a comprehensive post here for all the ones I've missed.

Nice version of that CF hat! I've made quite a few of the shorter Cabin Fever hat in Kureyon...they're quick and so charming! I think your yarn choice is probably more comfortable, though.

LOL
calling it "acrylique" lends some class to the much hated acrylic.
