I got a little carried away with these.. after the first one I decided I must make more in different colors.  I have so many ideas for future colorways as well, but so far this is what I came up with:

red and black

purple and black

Pink and black

teal and blue

gray on gray

cream and white!

They are all knit with 50/50 wool silk and 100% viscose yarn, except for the teal one which is bamboo and viscose.  I knit them on a Passap E-6000 machine.
Thanks for looking!

Ooo, I want to try machine knitting so bad! But it's so hard to find a manufacturer that won't charge outrageous shipping prices. D:

Those are hats are fabulous btw and I really like the teal one! <3

I actually made these at a friends house (she has so many fantastic machines) but I do have a few of my own, all purchased at garage sales and thrift stores.  I don't have any electronic machines, but basic ones.  I paid $20 each (a real bargain).  You can also find them on ebay (or craigslist) for cheap as well!  Machine knitting can be really fun!
