Feel Good Hats

Here are a couple of Feel Good hats for Land's End Feel Good Charity.
Pattern by Vickie Howell can be downloaded here:

Grey one in Noro. I hate this yarn as its so stiff and feels like nails when you rub it. Will soften it up with some fabric softener before sending. You would think for the $10.00 I paid for it ,it would be of better quality.

The purple one is made from Debbie Mumm. This made a really thick hat. It will keep someone very warm.

Both hats are for adults.

Next... off to knit some more on my husband's brown socks and start Christmas knitting. I need to make my grandkids hat and mittens/gloves. :^)

Knitting hats& mittens

Made Bella a couple of hat and mittens sets. Pink is her favorite color.
Next , some charity knitting.

Cancer Update

No chemo for now. They are sending me for a CT scan on the 15th of my pancreas for abnormalities found on the scan they did when they found the colon cancer. No need to worry as the doctor said he did not see cancer there,its just to follow up on what they found.I am still infected so he opened the wound some more to drain. He said it was looking good. I go back to see him in a month,then blood work in 6 months. Colonscopy in one year.

Have a wonderful long weekend !!

New Knits

Over the last few weeks I have been doing alot of small knitted items . I made a crochet baby afghan and sweater to match. I have no picture as the person they were for took them before I could get a picture. I have made a few dishcloths, finished a pair of socks I started a few months ago (as car knitting ) and a sweater for my grandson Jack. I am now working on a sweater for my nephew Jafar with the left over yarn from Jack's sweater. All came from my stash.

I still need to finish my Trout Stream Sock and sew the Lenox Afghan together. (I might crochet it instead.)
Next will start The 8-Color afghan from Lionbrand and cast on another pair of socks.
