Weekend Hats: 25 Knitted Caps, Berets, Cloches, and More | Cecily Glowik MacDonald, Melissa LaBarre

The book is great, I've made nearly every hat from it once. Only got the German version because it was cheaper than the US edition. Lots cheaper.

Patterns range from slightly advanced beginners. There are a few patterns for self-striping and variegated yarns, too.

Highly recommend it.

I'm making the Glashütte hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn. Again. Because ⬇️

julesG I once had a blue hat like the one in the top right hand side picture, but my daughter lost it. Thanks to that skein of yarn, which a wonderful knitting and book-nerdy friend, who's not yet on Litsy, gave me for Christmas, I can knit a new blue hat for myself. I will not lend it to my daughter, hopefully. 😬 1mo
CocoReads I got my daughter the knitters book of socks but I‘m sticking this one on my to read because she might like this one too. She rarely makes hats because she doesn‘t like to but she gives them a go every once in awhile 1mo
rabbitprincess Ohhh that blue yarn is gorgeous! It will make a beautiful hat. 1mo

I cast on a new knitting project- a red, white, and blue cowl for my mother in law. I‘m about a third done with this novel. I like it, but it also violates my big annoyance which is a dual timeline for historic fiction. I can almost always live without the modern story. In this case I do care for Caroline, but still… #knittersoflitsy #craftersoflitsy #knitting #audiobook

A bit of #audioknitting. Making a shawl from scratch, just because I like the yarn.

CoverToCoverGirl @peaknit but you will have happy feet all winter. 😉😊 5mo
Cathythoughts Gorgeous socks ! They will be fab with Blundstones 👌🏻♥️ 5mo
peaknit @CoverToCoverGirl I truly appreciate that positive spin and your right. I truly hate winter more than most, I think. I‘m working on it lol. I hope to move South one day, people say they miss seasons, but it‘s a risk I‘m willing to take 😂 5mo
CoverToCoverGirl @peaknit 💯agree. I can‘t abide winter either. It‘s too dark, too long and WAY too cold. 5mo

Lots of interesting books in this bundle - I might have to get this bundle just because of the tagged crochet book.

I need to be working on my #litsylove notes; I‘m so behind. But right now Knitting is keeping me sane. I just finished this lovely hat and I‘m obsessed with the Pom Pom. I can‘t wait to wear it this fall/winter. #knittersoflitsy #knitfastdiewarm

Because there is a book for everything…..I picked this up yesterday at JoAnn‘s. An experienced knitter will see I messed up the rib stiching on the brim of this maybe hat. Why is it I can never seem to get the right stitches and right number in?! 🫤 Although it kinda looks like a happy accident. I‘m going with Bob Ross on this one.

I‘ve noticed unless it‘s a large city, if there is a big box craft store there are no small indie yarn shops. ☹️

katy4peas It looks good! That‘s how you learn! 😃 stitch markers are always helpful too if you are serious about wanting to keep the right number of stitches. 😉 #knittersoflitsy (edited) 6mo
Tamra @katy4peas thank you - it‘s definitely a learning process which is both frustrating and relaxing! I think I‘m dropping stitches and/or being mindless and not keeping the right order. I do have some stitch markers, but so far I‘ve worked on really simple patterns such I haven‘t needed them. Or maybe I should use them anyway! 😅😅 6mo
katy4peas 😊Even with the simple patterns, I find the markers to be helpful. It is one more visual clue for your brain that says “time to switch stitches.” especially if you are tired and trying to work on your project. It also gives a visual clue of how many stitches between markers so you can quickly glance and count or see if you dropped/addd a stitch. I use mine for everything no matter how simple. 😊 6mo

Tamra @katy4peas thank you for the tips & advice, I can use it! 🙃 6mo
Tamra @Cathythoughts it is a pretty burgundy, thanks! I‘m making it for my daughter. I also made a matching scarf! Not perfect, but it‘s a first! 😜 6mo
SconsinBookyBadger Nimbleneedles on YouTube has good tutorials. 😊 ETA: It‘s been years but a few other recs I relied on are Knitiversity, The Chilly Dog, and Very Pink Knits. (edited) 6mo
