1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hats! Hats! Hats! on: December 27, 2012 12:01:40 PM
I have been knitting socks for a number of years and my favourite method of using up the leftover wool from each pair used to be to knit a pair of socks with all the extra wool UNTIL I saw this pattern:  http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/knit-roll-brim-hat.  I had no idea how much wool I had until I started to knit these hats.  I love the pattern and I can whip up a hat in an evening of mind-numbing TV.  I have given a couple to my husband, kept one for myself and am giving the rest (with more to come) to the shelter downtown.  This is my first post with pics so I hope it works.  The plain blue hat was the first one I did with this pattern.....used wool that a friend had donated to me.



(Edited to add a photo now that I read the instructions and figured it out.)

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing with fun fur? on: October 10, 2012 04:49:10 PM
I've been looking at the pics in Toys, Dolls, etc. of the dolls made with fun fur and wondering how difficult it is to sew with this fabric.  I have a sewing machine that's close to 40 years old so no fancy settings there!  Are there any tips, tricks, to using this?  Also, if this is already addressed in another thread, please direct me to it as I couldn't see anything.

TIA!!!
