From the Feet to the Head 

Three pair of socks for the traveling young men have been put on temporary hold and have been replaced by three toques.

The Laire Toque came home for a visit, so I snapped a picture.

Knit in Noro Silk - started and finished on Sept 25th. Thank you B.C. Ferries, for all that 'time on my hands'.

A second one was started the next day but due to a shortage of spare time, it wasn't finished until last Wednesday.

While driving through Parksville the other weekend, I just happened to spot a store called "The Wool Shop". Could I just drive by without stopping? Of course not! I poked around and came out with the 2 skeins of Sirdar Click which were used for this second Laire. It was quite a nice yarn to work with considering it's a 70/30 acrylic blend.

I also bought 2 skiens of Patons SWS of which only one was needed for the Hot Chilly Hat designed by Ruth of Knitting on Impluse. This is a pattern that Ruth had recently designed and I was lucky enough to get to test knit. The pattern is made up of an easy to follow stitch pattern that knits up quickly and easily and makes for a very comfortable and snug fitting toque. I'm afraid my photography skills do not do it justice however, as I can't seem to get a nice picture of the stitch detail .... not to mention the mirror shot ....
