Turkey Trip

 

Made from yarn from Turkey Trip Make in Turkey Midnightsky Fibres http://Midnightskyfibers.comWhen I went to Turkey I found a couple of yarn stores, so of course picked up a bit of yarn! Most of the yarn was acrylic or acrylic and wool blends and were made in Turkey.  I picked up some plain yarns and a few self striping fun skeins as well. A couple skeins of the yarn I picked up had metallic thread running through it and was quite fuzzy. I held these yarns together with leftover wool yarns from my stash to tone down the sparkle make thick warm hats.  Still looks a bit like a unicorn threw up on them, but hopefully in a fun and not overwhelming way.

Wee Baby Gift

Knit baby gift- booties, mittens, socks

A small baby gift for a friend.

Socks- made up the pattern as I went along,  leftover sock yarn in a circle pattern formed with knits and purls.

Mittens- quick baby mittens in Baby Ull

Booties- I made these from some felted cashmere (gray) and some 100% wool felt (cream) using the Purlsoho Felt Baby Shoes pattern. These are a fun project to cut out several pairs of at a time. I made a handful of these in both solid wool and 100% cashmere, adding contrasting stitches or small shell buttons to some of the pairs.

New Hat Patterns

Midnightsky Fibers Knitting Pattern - Colorwork hat in grey andNew hat patterns are out, just in time for some cool weather knitting!

Stonebridge and Crackling are stranded colorwork hats with corrugated ribbing and easy repeating designs. Each hat uses less than a skein of Cascade 220 Sport for each color. Work these hats in anything from highly contrasting colors (black and neon pink, bright green and orange) to nearly matching neutrals (cream and camel, shades of gray) for a more subtle look. Or go traditional with hats in red and white or green and gray.

Elevation is a quick one-skein hat with deep ribbing and just a bit of garter stitch- perfect for travel and gift knitting! Knit in MountainTop Chalet, a chained alpaca and bamboo yarn that comes in lovely natural colors. This yarn is very lightweight, so perfect for people who don’t like the feeling of heavy hats. (Feel free to sub in other bulky yarns!)
