Beanie and more beanie....

It's been a while since I blogged.... I admit, I considered giving up.... I guess I just don't know what I'm doing and this is yet another tool to learn, even though this one is supposed to be for fun.

But thanks to my knitting friends, I'm staying!  :)

I've been on a beanie kick lately, just can't stop making beanies.... Baby, adult, repeat... yep. They are fun, and I get to practice my knitting and using DPNs.


I started with the 2 above, had a blast. The little purple/green/white one was sent to a FB friend who will gift to her new family addition next month. How cool right? Oh the magic of FB! LOL

Before the baby beanies, I tried an adult beanie pattern, which I now LOVE.... I have made a few of those as well:
This one is my favorite and I can't wait for the weather to get cold so I can wear it! I've also made a red/grey, and fall colored one. I just got some more red/black yarn, which I plan to make, maybe this week.
so.... any wild guess as to which yarn I am using? come on, I am very predictable! Yes, you guessed it, Malabrigo!  :)   I'm quickly realizing that Malabrigo Rios is a major favorite of mine.... Maybe, just maybe more than their sock weight.
Perhaps it makes me boring, but hey, why change what is absolute perfection?  HAHA!

Other than that, I'm just working on a pile of potholders and washcloths.... I'm planning to attend my work's craft fair, and maybe i'll get lucky and sell a few items. That is in December, plenty of time to pile on items. I also plan to make a few simple baby blankets. I decided to make them super plain, but then decorate with small appliques, such as little flowers, teddy bears or hearts, trucks and little animals... sounds fun, doesn't it?
so.... what have you all been up to this past month?
