I've had my eye on these....

Yesterday I took a 24-hour spinning vacation...

I'm still amazed that the pattern calls for a yarn I actually have on hand. Not that I wouldn't sub, but...cool. Very cozy.

Hey, I'm Stacee, the one who Lisa chats with everyday when we pick up our kids... and who also wants to learn to spin. I just thought it was funny, I just went to make copies of that exact pattern from the library book I had to return!! I just need to find the Cork yarn! If I remember right, Wool & Co had it in their little clearance bin a few weeks back. Maybe I'll get lucky! With any luck, all of us can get together after the Thanksgiving mayhem has past.

Sure, Julie... I'd love some homework! As long as it comes equipped with the money to start another habit!! :-) I figure I should be smart and at least wait until after christmas to start my next craft (money-eating) adventure!! We'll see how that works out.

Julie- I am in knitter's heck and hope you can help me. I was doing your 10 cable infant hat and I was doing great (first time cableling) and then I got to the decrease row and everything went haywire.

So my question is when I start a decreasing row for example, R 26: *SSK, K2, K2tog, P2, C6F, P2* (70 sts), will I have 70 sts at the end and it will exactly end on my stich marker that I had put on when I started the hat?

Please help. I want to finish my hat.

Jessica, yes, exactly -- you begin with 80 sts and decreases 10 sts, so you should end up at the end of your round with 70 sts on the needles. :)

Stacee, LOL, spinning can be aas cheap or as expensive as you'd like it to be. ;) If you're so inclined...go on over to www.spunkyhats.com and order a greensleeves bare bones spindle ($15) and a few ounces of BFL from the "fiber-bulk.natural wools" page ($1.25 per ounce). :D

Ahhh... you're tempting me. I'm not going to claim I will or won't resist--that way I can't be a liar!! Thanks for the link, though. I will at least take a look and go from there. Have a great evening!

I figured out what I did, I was doing the ssk wrong (Novice Knitter) Instead of just involving 2 stitches I was involving 3. I went ahead and finished the hat. It's a good functional hat so I will give it to charity. I already started on a new one. Thanks for the pattern.

They *are* very cozy! I'm making them for a friend whose feet are always cold. ;) The pattern is from Melanie Falick's Handknit Holidays.
