not sure if i should write a pattern for this one

January 1, 2010

I have a Jewish friend who asked for a hat for Hanukkah.  I had started on a very pretty tweed-looking hat when he texted me and asked if I could put Diesel in his hat — Diesel being his 100 lb. black dog.  It took me a while to figure out how I might do it.  I ended up deciding on making a basic hat pattern but then I took a pattern for a dishcloth with a dog on it because I couldn’t find a dog hat.  Instead of doing the knitting and purling it called for, I changed between the two colors.  Here’s a picture of the hat.

I think it’s a great pattern for a dog lover.  Plus, there aren’t any dog hat patterns that I could find anywhere.  Please give me some input as I took pretty careful notes as I was knitting and should be able to manage a pattern out of it!

snowflake hat

December 5, 2009

Never thought I’d actually knit something for a guy, but here I am worried that I shouldn’t even give it to him! haha =] I knitted the Snowflake Hat [here]. I think it turned out pretty good too, let me know what you think!

My biggest issue with it is that it seems a little long, but since it’s for a guy whose head is bigger than mine [hahaha] I should be just fine. I’d recommend scrunching up the top rows that look like a tree, since it also comes to a slight point at the top. Altogether though, I’d definately recommend it!
