Knitting Update - Lots of Gifts

We have a lot of late summer/fall birthdays in my family. Here are a few of the things that were mailed out recently to my lovies.

For two of my nieces. More Pookies. I LOVE them! Fun to make, fun to give away to little ones. They are always a hit.

Pattern: Pookies from Barbara Prime
Needle Size: US 6
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft, Lily Sugar n'Cream and Cascade 220

This hat, modeled by my daughter, was actually for my sister's birthday. It was hard to part with. I need to make one for me. 

Antelope Hat for B
Pattern: Antelope Hat by Kelly McClure (FREE!)
Needles: US 6 and 8
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers

This little number is for my other sister. She saw something like this on Pinterest and put in a request. I altered the pattern a bit by placing a snap under the button instead of letting you button it wherever you like. It's a great pattern and done in this yarn, it's SOOO yummy!

Natalie's Cowl
Pattern: Fear of Comittment Cowl by Julie Weisenberger (FREE!!)
Needles: US 11
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted

And then there's this hat...
It's a great pattern. I love the stitch pattern on the body of the hat. It's very cool. But I think my yarn was just too bulky. It's so thick and it's just WAY too hot for where I live.

Pattern: Shroom by Lee Juvan (FREE!!)
Needles: US 11
Yarn: Brown Sheep Burly Spun
