My grandson wants the white one and his friend wants the one I am doing right now.
This is the bad thing about knitting Christmas presents in front of them, they want the hats now. My middle grandson will get the one with the gold band.
Will need to do mittens and gloves to match.

I made this blanket out of Lionbrand Homespun.
This is not my favorite yarn to crochet with, but it is so soft. My needle kept getting caught in the fibers. The picture is alittle dark. The yarn was leftover from sweaters I have knitted . The sweaters are so warm ,but the yarn tends to pill a bit.
This is the pattern I used.

I also made a pair out of Paton's Classic Wool in pumpkin for my grandson. He needed them for an Outward Bound trip. He could not bring anything cotton so he got wool socks.
I am now working on a fun fur scarf, for some mindless knitting. I still have a bunch of this in my stash I need to use up. I now hear these are no longer in style. I'll pass them out as gifts for Christmas. :^)

I have done a pair of socks for my mother's birthday. It was on September 5th. I also crocheted some pot scrubbers that I will use for teacher gifts during the holidays. They will also make great gifts for the family with matching dishcloths.
The DIY group wants to continue the UFO KAL for this month. I think next month we will do entrelac scarf kal. We will use this pattern. http://www.allisonknits.com/entrelacscarf.pdf

This is the pattern I used .
It worked up really fast when I was paying attention. This is one of those patterns you cannot watch T.V. and knit. I might do this one for my next exchange on the Knit & Chat board.
This Saturday we will be starting our DIY Mitten KAL. Feel free to join us >
Happy Knitting !!

I made this before the movie came out and did not know there were color bars close together at the ends of the movie scarf.
The last 35 rows were not posted for some reason. So you need to do another 35 rows of black before binding off.
This pattern is copy righted to me and I give you permission to make it for yourself , family and friends. Please DO NOT SELL the pattern or items made from this pattern.
It is posted at The Leaky Cauldron with my permission.
Happy Knitting !!
I go by Lulu but my real name is Cheryl. I use Lulu because my husband calls me that after my grandmother Luette.
I will post about different items I am knitting and how I like the patterns I am using.
I belong to several knitting forums.
I love knitting socks . On the Knit & Chat site we are doing a sock a month knit-along.
Right now I have a knit-along going for scarves. I called it the Suprise scarf knit-along so everyone could pick out their own pattern. We are only letting each other know what yarn and color we are using. The surprise comes when we post our pictures of our scarf and then tell what pattern we are using. This way we can see what everyone comes up with.
This will also give everyone there another way to reach me when DIY goes down.
We just finished a purse knit-along there .
As soon as I figure out how to post pictures here , I will post some of my knitting.
Happy Knitting All !!
