Garnet & Black Hat

I put this hat together in about 3-4 hours. Here is the brim finished on the adult size loom.

Here is what the inside looks like while the knitting is in process.

I used Yarn Bee Boucle Traditions Brushed yarn in cranberry and black doing two strands at a time.

The finished hat turned out to be a really good size – even long enough to flip up the brim! The brim is 12 lines and the body is 31 lines.

Gamecock Scarf

Last week I finally made a lunch hour trip to In the Loop on Devine St. in Columbia. I found some beautiful burgundy colored kid mohair by Nashua Handknits. I decided I’d combine it with some black Yarn Bee Brushed Boucle and see what would happen.

I used a Darice small round loom and started the knitting.

The completed scarf came out very nicely! The mohair was only 98 yards worth so I’ve found that about 100 yards makes a nice long scarf.
