Bee's chunky scarf

King Cole Comfort chunky yarn is divine.

I started this scarf this afternoon and I am just loving the feel of it. It knits well.

Hats! Hats! More hats!

Purple beanie hat


Beanie hat for me


Beanie hats are very popular. Close friends and family are regularly asking me to knit them one. Originally, all the hats would have the same design and some people would ask for two maybe three and that was when I started trying out different designs based on the stitches, patterns that I know that would suit a beanie hat style. Cables was a design suggested by friends.

So here are some of my attempts.

No! The blanket is not one of the designs. :-)

That was an Alphabet Train Blanket thatI finished two weeks ago. Pleased with it but I think next time I would use a chunky yarn instead of DK yarn.

Throughly enjoyed knitting this beret. I don't wear berets as I don't think they suit me. You have to know how to wear them but I must say it does look nice.
