Summer Knitting

Hi friends,

I am so sorry for not writing for so long! I have no excuse but I was finishing up with school and I now have my Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education. I am happy that I completed the degree and I am also happy that I am finished so I can start working with children again in the field. I recently got a job for the summer which I hope turns into a full time opportunity.
For knitting, I was thinking I would love to knit something fun. I usually do not know what to knit in the summer so I have looked up some ideas to share with you. Here are five ideas that I liked most to knit up for the summer! The projects range from beginner to intermediate in skill level. All the links include the free knitting patterns. I hope you find something that interests you from the list! Happy knitting!

Happy New Year!

Hi Friends,

I just want to say I wish you all the best in the new year and I hope you achieve all that you wish to achieve! I have had such a wonderful holiday and I return to University tomorrow (starting back late!). The winter break is officially over for me now so I am thinking more about moving forward in the year. It is my last semester of school and then I graduate.
I had to keep my hands busy with some knitting tonight so I picked up the needles and decided to knit a headband to keep my ears warm on days I do not feel like wearing a hat.
Here are some pictures from my New Year's Eve celebration with my sister, and boyfriend and my sister's boyfriend.

Happy New Year! thank you for your continued support ! :)

I am back from celebrating Christmas with my family. I have just spent a couple of days at home relaxing and eating way too much chocolate. It has been wonderful! I wanted to share photos with you of the gifts I knitted this year for my mom,dad, and sister. I am already thinking of what I will be knitting for next year! it was so nice to be able to give everyone something knitted from "Needles and Wool".

First up are socks for my mom...

Then gave my sister a knitted cowl... 

 I gave my dad a knitted hat....

The hat was also wrapped with a bow, but I took the photo after he opened it.

I hope that if you were also celebrating with family you had a wonderful Christmas.

I enjoyed it so much this year and I love our family traditions and new tradtions I am starting as well.

Knitted Cozy Hat

Hi Friends,

I have just completed a purple hat made from Loops and Threads cozy wool yesterday.  I started knitting the hat in September, but then it got really busy with school and it got put aside. There was only decreasing to do to complete the hat, so it was a quick finish last night.  Here it is below! And I used the same pattern as a previous post with a few changes. There is ribbed stitch which is knit two, purl two at the bottom, then it is knitting through the rest of the hat. 


1. Cast on 2 stitches for every inch of the person's head or depends on your gauge (my head was 22 inches around so I casted on 44 stitches)

2. K2, p2 all the way around until ribbing is the length you desire.

3. K all the way around until hat measures 6" - 7" then start to decrease

4. To decrease: divide your hat up into groups of 8 stitches and put markers.  Decrease by knitting two stitches together in each group once you reach the marker and then knit the rest of the stitches.

 5. Do this until you arrive at 4 stitches and cut your yarn about 6" then pull the yarn through the stitches with a crochet hook or darning needle then weave the remaining yarn down through the top of the hat.

As always thank you for visiting! 
Happy Holidays!
