I have made several of the hat below. Several meaning 6 and I still have 1 more to make. This particular hat is for my cousin's daughter. She requested this hat in a pink and purple blend. I think I nailed it with the yarn!

I wanted to make myself a cardigan sweater that was big and comfy and would be great for colder weather. I think I succeeded! I shopped around for yarn because I didn't want to pay $200 for yarn. I found some yarn on KnitPicks. It worked great! Next time, I am going to splurge and buy more expensive yarn but not until I get to my goal weight.
I look pregnant in the picture. I assure you I am not. Just fat folks.

I wish this next hat was more clear in regards to the color. The color is stunning. The yarn itself was amazing to work with. Super soft and easy to use. I find it makes a difference when you use a quality yarn.

These next hats are Christmas gifts for my nephews. I hope they like them!

Isn't this little sock adorable? Baby socks are so fun because they knit up so fast and use minimal yarn. I always save my sock yarn and can whip up a pair of wee socks in 2 hours.

Socks are so much fun to knit. I don't know what it is about them. Maybe the yarn I choose just makes me so happy? Every time I finish a pair of socks, I just marvel at how cool they are. I could seriously knit just socks for the rest of my life and be happy.

Finally, I am working on a sweater for my mom for Christmas. I love how it's working up so far. I keep picking it up and putting it down because I am in the boring part right now. It's the knitting of the body and you knit continuously for 22 inches. It gets a little tedious.
The yarn is much more purple than the picture appears.
