I am a slow knitter

Yes I am still working on my knit hat and scarf in B and Red Bernat yarn. The scarf is finished I am working on the last few row of the hat. I really need to try my very best to knit even when I am tired and depressed. I want to give knitting on circulars a try I have purchased circular needles. So far I have not used any of the needles. My plan is to finish the hat this weekend. I promise to post a picture when the hat is finished.

Knit Hat and Scarf

Wow December. I finished a Hat and Scarf Knit. I got the pattern from the back of Bernat Super Stripes yarn. I did not use Bernat for this Hat and Scarf just the pattern. It is amazing to me how you can use the same pattern and different yarns and get such different looks for the same type of garment. I am using Yarn Bee Icelandic Jewels in Peridot (green). Very nice pattern easy to knit it is a k2 p2 thought out the entire pattern of the Scarf and the same with the hat until the last few rows to decrease. I must admit I am not to pleased with the pom-pom I think I need to buy a pom-pom maker. I am almost finished with the Hat using the Bernat Super Stripe with B & Red it looks pretty good too. I will post a picture of that when I am finished. My Model is my Sister.
