I decided that I wanted to use the Vanna's Tapestry yarn that I bought at AC Moore to see how it would work up, so I pulled out my Innovations knitting machine to make a hat.
I only wanted to make a regular size hat, but I got a little carried away and made a slouchy hat.
I don't like it much on me, so I turned it into a preemie size baby cocoon.
I actually like working with the Innovations knitting machine even though it does have one needle that gives me trouble.
I have marked that needle with a Sharpie marker.
I wind the handle slowly and when that certain needle comes around I stare at it like a hawk. If it catches the yarn the wrong way, then I fix it and all is good.
Here's a new scrap granny that I'm working on. It will most likely be a lapghan for me or a baby blanket.
This cute little hat will be for my (soon to be) granddaughter.
The 1st hat I crocheted for her will be too big for a few months at least, so I made this one a little bit smaller.
The colors match the grey and white ripple I crocheted for her a few months ago.
This is my grandson Will (#61) at his Bowie High School football game yesterday.
He mostly stands on the sidelines because the Seniors get to play the most. I don't like that. It doesn't seem right to me.
(But what do I know - I'm just his Yaya.)
I guess it will be alright though - all the boys that are on the sidelines this year will be Seniors next year, so they will be the ones playing the games then.
Bowie Bulldogs - 24
Roosevelt Raiders - 33
Have a great day - see ya next time. :)
