Finished Crafty Things from 2009…. Part One

Okay, so since I neglected my blog this past year I have some catching up to do.  So I’m starting with January 2009 and working my way forward in the year.  Sadly, there were some projects this past year that I never even took photos of.  Mostly dishcloths and stuff, but still.

So starting with January.  I had some Christmas gifts to finish up before we celebrated with my family last year.  After I finished all of them I put all the crafting down and spent a great deal of time reading.  Mostly, because I got sucked into Twilight. 🙂

Forgive the photo quality.  I realized the night before I gave them away that I hadn’t took picture yet.

First a Hat for my Dad
Needles- size 8  using Magic Loop
Yarn – Knit Picks Wool of the Andes – Onyx Heather
Pattern -My own “Design”, which really just means I winged it. A 2×2 rib.

A Hat Fit for My Brother
Needle– Knit on size 8 needles using Magic Loop
Yarn– Wool of the Andes – Cobblestone Heather
PatternA Hat Fit for my Boyfriend
Notes– I knit an extra inch on this hat from what the pattern called for. Ended up having about a yard left out of the skein of yarn I used.

Another Hat for my Brother
Needle
– Size 8, knit Magic Loop
Yarn– Wool of the Andes – Firecracker Heather
PatternRibbed Beanie
Notes– Cast on 96 instead of the 80 called for. Knit for 7 inches prior to decrease and ended up using about 1.3 skeins of this yarn. I loved this pattern though. I adore the look of the 5×3 rib and the decrease is really neat looking.

A Slouchy Hat for Heather
Needle
– Size 6 for the ribbing, size 8 for the rest of the hat. All done Magic Loop
Yarn– Wool of the Andes – Forest Heather
PatternSlouchy Copy Cat Hat
Notes– I loved making this hat. I wish I had a better picture of it though. I took this one while it was blocking on a plate. lol It was such a fun pattern. I keep meaning to make another one, but it slips down on the list. It was a lot of fun to knit though. Used almost two whole skeins of Wool of the Andes.

    I love the slouchy hat. It’s a gorgeous colour, and I’m getting into the patterns with a little touch of lacework in them.
