Beanie Pattern!

Well I finally got it done! My first ever (for the public) beanie pattern. The PDF is available on ravelry.
The Alaina Beanie
(StitchNation Bamboo Ewe in Eucalyptus)
I gave the prototype to my sister, so I decided to name the pattern after her. I never cared much for patterns with people's names, but it's so much simpler than diamond moss stitch cables beanie which is what I was originally going to name this. My friend Kelli is testing the pattern for me, but I was so excited I had to go ahead and publish without waiting (hopefully I won't regret that!). There are many chances for errors, between the knitting and rewriting and such.

Now I'm already working on my second pattern that is a hat for my husband so it will be called the Josh Beanie (I've just decided to start naming them after whomever gets the prototype).

This is me. (I'm really un-photogenic and really don't like having
my picture taken)


Pattern Making

Well I'm getting ready to start work on another moss stitch diamond cables beanie. This one should be the final one to work out all of the kinks in the pattern so I can get that posted finally. Fingers crossed...

Until then here's another nifty stitch that I've been using to make a lovely dark grey scarf. It's called Lacy Ladder and it's another one from Craft Cookie.

Update 11.8.11

I should have known I would get distracted! I signed up for a ravelry account yesterday (why have I not known about this place?!), and found a beanie that I must simply bump to the head of the line. It's Hermione Hearts Ron, and it's super super cute. Casting on here I come!
