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...

Excellent! Once I learn how to make a sock on the KK, I might have to make one of these for myself Smiley
