1  Official Kittyville hat in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by whereismymind on: September 02, 2005 12:19:23 AM

I used two and a bit balls of Debbie Bliss Merino chunky and 5mm double pointed needles. My gauge was off so a few bits needed working out, but after figuring out the right amount to cast on it mostly ended up being things like picking up a couple less stitches for the earflaps etc. On my first try I placed the kitty ears too far back on the head so I unravelled them and moved them two centimetres forward. It was only my second try working with double pointed needles and I found it much more comfortable working with the chunky yarn. My last try was on a sock with tiny 3mm needles - maybe now I've more practice I could go back to the sock! I'd been meaning to make this hat for ages and now I've found out how easy it is I'm sure I'll make many more as presents for friends.

The pattern can also be found online here: http://kittyville.com/knit/kitty_hat.html

Here's my attempt at the minisweater in Rowan Summer Tweed (beautiful yarn).

Last night I finished my lace trim bolero. I used Sirdar pure cotton and made a few adjustments, I knitted the sleeves longer, added 2 inches to the length of the body and pinned the middle together with a sparkly brooch for a better fit. It's my first ever wearable item of clothing, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Just though I'd share this picture of me knitting my spring fling. I'm nearly done on the back, I've just finished the armhole shaping. How's everyone else doing?

Until I stumbled across this thread this morning I hadn't even thought about knitting this, but I have a load of purple acrylic mohair type yarn that I needed to knit something with and it seemed a good match. Thank goodness this thread was here, otherwise Row 4 wouldn't have made anysense.

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, although I'd have liked the lace pattern to have showed up more. It shows up beautifully when I hold the caplet up to the window though...
