Bright Ideas

So, the Christmas knitting continues. Since last posting, I have finished everything but the blanket (still about 20% to go) and one last hat. Unfortunately, my daughter is sick so we will be spending Christmas at home instead of with my wife’s family. Less unfortunately, that gives me more time to knit!!

With only a few days left to go, I have decided to a) make a hat for which I was unable to find a pattern, b) make said hat using stranded colorwork, which I have never done before, and c) make my own charts for it and splice together a pattern. Hey, it’s a sports themed hat, so I have to keep it interesting (for me) somehow!

I’m about to start the colorwork bit. Potentially the only smart decision I’ve made about this project is to limit myself to two colors per row. I’m going to use a few strategically placed duplicate stitches to make this possible.

Wish me luck!

    Aww…I hope your little one gets to feeling better soon! However, yahoo for more knitting time for holiday gifts 🙂 And are you crazy? You are so very brave to try that hat 🙂 Good luck with it! I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
