I've been meaning to post these forever, but haven't had the time to get a decent photo of them. Well, of my nephew's. They are knitted from Aslan Trends Royal Alpaca, and I improvised the design as I knit each row. They are, more or less, the same, except that hers was knit on US 6 and US 7 needles, and his was knit on US 7 and US 8 needles. I put them in the mail today. Thankfully we are in for another cold snap next week so they will get a bit of use out of them before the early spring.
I have not seen my niece and nephew for over nine years, since their father and I are estranged. He is the person who most makes me wish I were an only child. But I hope the kids like their hats and that they can get some use out of them before it gets too warm.
This is mostly a knitting blog. Sometimes pictures of things I've made, sometimes not. I'm a guy who knits, I usually attend a men's stitch 'n' bitch on Monday nights, and I prefer natural fibres to artificial ones. I have a love-hate relationship with bamboo yarns: I love what they can do and how they look, I hate how they are made. I've been knitting since about 2003, though I really didn't get into it until 2005, while convelescing with a broken leg. I must have discovered something good, 'cause I'm still knitting years later.
