A blanket, a hat and some socks! Oh my…

Hello everyone!

Just to let you know, I’m still working on my blanket (LOL) and I did get a bit more done, but I got distracted by some beautiful teal yarn I bought a while ago and started making a hat!

This yarn is 80% acrylic and 20% Alpaca.  I’m allergic to wool but “they” say Alpaca is hypoallergenic! I thought I would try knitting with an Alpaca blend first before embarking on any projects that are 100% Alpaca just to make sure I didn’t have a reaction to it.  So far, so good!


I just love the texture!

My husband has also been asking me to make him another pair of socks.  He got the first pair I made, but they’re very loose as the yarn I used was too thin.  The sock pattern uses a different size needle than the hat, so I thought, why not? Let’s start those too!!


So needless to say, I now have 3 projects on the go! But I love it! It gives me variety!

Well off to work on the socks now.  I’m at the part where I have to pick up stitches and I’m not very good at doing this yet so I prefer to do this during the day when I have the most light.  Nothing worse then trying to make new stitches when you can’t see what you’re doing! LOL!

Happy knitting!
