The wedding is in 9 days!!! I have family coming from Chicago & decided I would make them something to take back with them. So I made my cousin a headband & her baby daughter a hat.
First the hat, the pattern I used is Cabled Toddler Hat by Lisa Giaco. I used Caron Simply Soft in Plum Wine. I love this pattern! It was quick & easy! And I love the curly-Qs on top! The cable stitch was easy. I’m not a huge fan of cables. Not sure what it is about them, but I just don’t love knitting cables. Though I love love love the way cables look when they are done.
I hope it fits her! The pattern said to do 5 inches but once I was done I was thinking maybe I should have done another round of the cable repeat. She’s 1 1/2 years old & she is the flower girl at the wedding! I can’t wait to see her! Hopefully I will have pictures of her wearing the hat for an upcoming post.
Next up, I wanted to make my cousin something as well, something that kind of matches but I wanted something different. I decided on a headband. I choose Julia’s Cabled Headband by Paulina Chin. I loved this pattern! It was easy, quick & the cables just came out beautiful!!!
I love the way this came out! It’s nice and warm…at least in my house! LOL I hope it will be warm in Chicago!!
I really need to learn to love cables because I love the way they come out! And they are really not difficult to do. Maybe if I knit more of them I will love them! LOL
So now that these are done I’ve started another pair of socks. I just love knitting socks! LOL I don’t know what it is about them but I think I will always be working on a sock in between other projects.
As you can see it is very much in the beginning stage. Not sure how much I will be able to get done in the next few days with the wedding! We just have a few little details to work on this weekend & then family will begin to arrive next week! I’m so excited! This has been a year in planning & I can’t believe it is almost here! And so much to do for Christmas! eek!!!
