I'm making myself some winter accessories (in addition to the Spring/Fall set I posted earlier).  Here's what I've got done so far:

I'm working on another hat right now. ^_^   The goal is to make bright-coloured accessories so that I don't get hit by a car in the dark winter.  (The red in the bottom scarf and hat is quite a bit brighter than the picture would have you believe)

I've just finished making myself this fall/spring accessories set - they're lighter than I usually make, designed for chilly weather (rather than stupidly cold weather!)

Orange for Fall on one side:

Green for Spring on the other:

(The hat looks like it's backwards for a reason - I'm tall, and the only part of my hat most people see is the brim. Tongue)

I'm most happy with the fingerless mitts.  Mostly because I was least sure about them before I started.  I thought they turned out really well (and really the same as each other!) for something I just wung (winged?)

I made a red stocking for mom:

And finally made one as an actual hat... for me!

I made my hat!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427581.0#axzz2fRDW2sg9

Also, another stocking for mom:

I should probably start thinking about how many she'll actually want/need...

35  Christmas Stocking Cap in Knitting: Completed Projects by fantasticmio on: September 20, 2013 06:18:14 AM
I was making some stockings for my mom for Christmas.  I made them on a round knitting loom and the pattern was pretty simple - basically, it's just the hat pattern that comes with the looms, made extra long, with a heel stuck in there.  Since I was using the same size of loom that I use to make hats for me, I naturally had to try one one - just for a lark!

Long story short, I decided I just had to make myself a stocking cap!

This is what it looks like when it's not being a hat:

I used Loops & Threads Charisma; the full ball of "Holiday" (the striping yarn), and about 80 yards of "Off White".  And the second-to-biggest round loom in the Knifty Knitter set (the green one - it has 36 pegs). 

I can't wait until it's cold enough out to wear it!  This being Canada, that should happen any minute now...

Is it possible to become addicted to a pattern?

I decided to wait until tomorrow to get the yarn for my hat, so this is another one for mom. ^_^

I made another hat stocking for my mom!


IMG4076 by fantasticmio, on Flickr

I changed how I did the heel this time and I'm deeply in love with how it came out.  It's a bit rounder and I didn't have to use the ends to close a bunch of holes as I wove them in. ^_^

I might need to do a bit of research on how to do the toes, though... I'm not thrilled about the bunching...

Apparently I can't seem to stop making Christmas stockings that fit me perfectly... *sigh*
