Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

Caps, caps, caps!

Posted by mtmom on November 9, 2007

With the weather getting cooler, we at chez Mt.Mom have pulled out the winter hat/scarf box and rummaged through it.  I found several caps from my knitting past, some too small for even the smallest child of the house to wear.  I plan to hold onto a few, but I found 2 that had not been worn — too small by the time they were finished, or else underestimated from the start — for which donation seems the best destiny.

These are on their way to this weekend’s charity Craft Sale:  Blue Pink flowers cap

While these need to find a place of storage:  3 early capsBell-shaped brioche cap

Also to the Craft Sale went this cap, which I began only 3 days ago –fast and fun, but too small for its originally intended purpose.  Gansey cap

The textures don’t show so very well, but there are seed-stitch diamonds, 2-stitch cables, and travelling-stitch Celtic knots.  The pattern reproduces in worsted weight a sock pattern designed by Janine Le Cras, resident of Guernsey, for the 6SoxKAL yahoo group.  [Thanks, patternwhisperer Jeri, for this conversion idea!]

Also on the cap front, I finished the Intarsia Panelled Cap.  (whew!)  dd models intarsia cap

I was ready to be done.  In the mood for a change of pace,  I immediately switched to the little Gansey pattern.  Very different indeed!

I wonder what will be next?
