Is this the hat?

I know I've seen this stitch pattern before...will have to look in my books and see if I can find it.  If you click on the pictures they get bigger.

3  Hubby has a problem LOL in Knitting: Completed Projects by -Cougar1 on: March 02, 2008 07:37:02 AM
He doesn't seem to know how to put a new roll of TP on the holder when it runs out...he just sets a new roll on top of the used up roll...so I did this yesterday and put it on the roller and set his roll on top like he had it...this is what he will see this morning LOL...

this is a shot from the side showing the inside of the tube...you can see the end of the roller...

I found this pattern here: http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/?p=169

4  Made another hat and learned a new stitch in Knitting: Completed Projects by -Cougar1 on: January 26, 2008 06:28:52 AM
I had printed off this pattern quite awhile back but every time I looked at the picture I kept putting off making it because I thought the stitch would be hard to do...turned out I was wrong.  It was easy to do and can't wait to make another one...this one was sent to a friend in Louisiana.  I made it out of Caron Simply Soft in Off White and it is soooo soft.

I also made a no hair cap for another friend in North Carolina who is losing her hair from chemo...she said she wears it all the time and people think she has hair till they look closer...and she doesn't have to worry about gray hairs LOL

I finished the blue and white set...I worried about the brown and green set, but she liked both sets when I took them to her this afternoon.

I made little booties like before in blue with white cuffs.
For this hat I started off in white working a K1, P1 ribbing for 8 rows, switched to St St for 10 rows, then did a row of purl, one row of knit, one row of purl, then started decreasing.
Came out as a short flat topped hat sort of.  The hat fit Pooh but no way were the tiny booties going to fit him LOL.

6  Another hat and booties in Knitting: Completed Projects by -Cougar1 on: December 03, 2007 06:23:12 PM
I already made 3 sets of booties and hat from the Berries and Cream patterns (booties here http://tangleknits.blogspot.com/2007/02/baby-booties-to-match-berry-sweater.html) and (hat here http://tangleknits.blogspot.com/2007/02/baby-toque-to-match-berry-sweater.html)...2 in blue and white and one set in raspberry and cream.
I needed another set of booties and a hat for an older baby but didn't want to use the hat pattern again.  I love the bootie pattern and plan on using it a lot.  Instead of the same hat, I used this pattern instead (http://www.knitlist.com/00gift/leaf-edge-baby-hat.htm) and came up with this set:

I haven't got to see the movie yet, and this is the only picture I have found (I cropped it) that had her in it...is this the pink coat you were talking about?

8  Finished up projects in Knitting: Completed Projects by -Cougar1 on: November 15, 2007 04:07:01 PM
I finished off some items and still have a stack printed out to go through.  Between Christmas being around the corner, babies due and a wedding to look forward to, I'll never get to the ones I keep intending to do for me LOL.
This first one is called a Happy Hooker...it's to keep your cable hook handy so you won't drop it on the floor or in the cushions (like me LOL). 

Next are two baby hats and a pair of booties I did a while back

This one is a hat and booties I just finished up.  The colors are a raspberry and a French vanilla offwhite color

This one is a small bag big enough for a small ball of yarn for doing walk around knitting or just to take a small project like a dishcloth if you have to sit and wait.  I made it out of some leftover raspberry yarn from the hat and booties, and changed the pattern from using D-rings to knitting the strap to the bag.

That's all for now.  Now I need to get busy on another hat and bootie set  requested in light blue with white...do you think in all of the 4 big totes and 3 boxes of yarn that I would have any white?  Of course not...had to go get some today LOL, so now I'm ready to go.
Maybe I need to rethink the putting off of something for me...our furnace went out and the weather is cold and my hands were icy all day...maybe I should go ahead and make those fingerless mitts I keep wanting LOL.

9  Re: Keychain Crochet hook - a tutorial in Knitting: Completed Projects by -Cougar1 on: March 17, 2007 09:01:50 PM
I bought a hook and tried this and it broke while bending it, twice...guess the new hooks are made really cheap.  So, I went back and bought a size 2 steel crochet hook, clipped it off, but this time I took my teeny tiny drill bit and made a hole, put a wire thingy on it (brain is very tired and I can't think what the silly thing is called but you can see it in the picture), then attached a small clip.  Works great...have to keep the blue point protector on it though when it's not in use because I kept catching it on stuff.  
Here is a picture of it:

Thank you so much.  I just finished up another hat as an extra gift to have on hand (cause I have a feeling we are going to get extra company this weekend) and was itching to do another (and also since I just learned to work in round I am so tickled with it I can't seem to get enough of doing it LOL).  I used this pattern to make it:
