I was making a skirt for Sami ( My 16 month GD) and I did not like how thick the fabric was coming out ..I had about 4 inches knitted... I was going to rip it out an then thought.. A Hat... So I added a few inches and decreased towards the top.. and Walla... A Hat for me to wear in the evenings when we are walking :)
Sorry.. I am very Camera Shy!!!

This is a Dress that I made myself without a pattern.
In My Ravelry Group ( Knitting For Kids ).. One of the knitters posted a Challenge, so naturally I had to jump in and give it a whirl.... There is a Ralph Lauren Dress which is "similar" to this one that I made...and thats what the challenge was..To make that Dress..The Ralph L. one had little pockets on the skirt but I made pockets last night and put them on and took them off.. I think that the Cable Pattern I made is Busy enough for the skirt without pockets..I also put a button flap on the shoulder so its easier to get off and on...
The skirt is Bernart So Soft and the Blouse is Lion Brand Sock Yarn... Two different gauges I know but I did the Math and made it work :)
For those of you that are in Ravelry.. Come Join us at Knitting For Kids !!!

Pass The Hat Please !!!!!
I made more hats this week.. The hat itself is great but getting the Brims to behave is the Challenge.. I think if you do the brim with double yarn it comes out better...I think I will redo the brim on one of them.
Several People have asked for the Directions so let me TRY to explain!!!!

The Hat is crochet... I used a G hook for the hat and a F hook for the brim...Worsted weight yarn...
Chain 4 ....Join to a circle..
Do 9 trbl(treble) crochet in circle....
Chain 3 do a double treble anround post of first treble in space and double treble around post of next treble... Continue around and join with a slip stitch..
Chain 3 and do a treble in each space and a double treble around post of double treble....
Continue in this manner until you have 9 trebles between the double post treble....
Chain 1.. double crochet next two sts together.. continue doing the two sts around....
Do two rows of double crochet around..... Thats the HAT.. Now you find a brim that works for you... I googled several newsboy caps and tried a few of the brims.. Like I said.. The best ones are done using double yarn... I actually like the hat without the Brim too!!!!
Hope you can make sense out of these directions....Good Luck!!!
Let me know how you make out!!! :)

Beach Day

Today was a Beautiful Day for The Beach..

This is part The Jones Beach Boardwalk .. There's Bob... "Hi" Bob :)....I don't know the length of the boardwalk but I should make a note to find that out.. I know that they have the miles written at points and it is a popular place for jogging and walking... Today we walked past the 7 mile mark but we only walked about a mile or so of the boardwalk...we got Lazy!!!

I'm still trying to catch up to Bob... "Hey You.. Wait for me "
