1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Making gnome hat...felting? on: January 03, 2008 12:51:17 AM
I have a ton of worsted weight soft luscious yarn.  I've been mulling over hat options, and now I'm thinking...gnome hats! 

The Peanut has, like her mother, a "slightly larger than average" noggin.  Hence, I make a 4-7 year old hat for my 2 year old.  I've never felted before, so I don't know what to expect of shrinkage.

I was thinking of doing this pattern:
since the pattern indicates it's pretty forgiving, then felt and see what happens...

Thoughts?  Tips or tricks?  Should I work it in the ribbing or, since it's going to be felted, just work in...garter? 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wool Longies/Diaper Cover on: January 02, 2008 11:49:34 PM
I finally finished Peanut's most recent pair of longies.  She is growing so fast. 

I used the Little Turtle Knit's Picky Pants pattern:

The yarn is hand dyed by deliciouspear in the Melee colorway

I love the funky color pooling that happens with this kind of yarn.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Snowman hat on: December 29, 2007 06:39:19 PM
I fell in love with Insaknitty's Snowman hat. http://insanknitty.wordpress.com/2007/12/06/new-pattern-childs-snowman-hat/

So, I stayed up late on Christmas Eve, finishing it up for the peanut.  I used a soft, bulky acrylic yarn since it's going on a 2 year old's head (and will need cleaning.)

It's been spending a lot of time as a speaker cozy.
