Just wanted to show off a few things I've knitted lately Smiley First I'll show my throw that I made, I got the pattern from "The Knitter's Bible" and I love it! It's 8 vertical stripes each done in a different cable stitch and it took quite a while but was definitely worth it!



*detail*



Next are a couple hats I made for my cousins for their birthdays. The first is for Casey who just turned 13. She requested a purple hat with polka-dots, which I reinterpreted as bobbles! 63 bobbles on this baby, so I hope she thoroughly enojoys it!




The second hat is for Kelly who is just about to turn 16. She requested a hat with small black and white stripes and so instead of being boring and making them evenly small stripes I decided to roll dice to decide on the width of each stripe!



And to spruce up the part with the jogs because of color changes I stitched a little row of x's vertically on the hat. I think it's a fun/cute detail!

That throw is gorgeous,  I must say.

One thing you can do to get rid of the jogs for future knits, is once youve knitted a round in the new color, and you're about to start stitch 1 of the second round, pick up the stitch below the stitch you're going to knit, put it on the needle, and knit both stitches.  Works for me!

Thank you Smiley

And yeah, I've heard of that  method for getting rid of jogs but I always either forget to do it when I get to the change or I just do it slightly wrong and it looks funny. I'll probably work on it in the future since it seems like such an awesome technique, but for now I'll just make little X's Smiley Thanks!
