FO: Cable Hat for Myself

Earlier this year I knitted myself another hat. You might remember me posting about my first hat here, which was back in 2012. I really do like my dark purple hat, but it’s just not warm enough when it gets cold and windy here, so I decided on a thicker one with a nice cable pattern, of course another DROPS pattern.

As I have a dark purple winter coat and a bright pink parka I thought this light purple/lilac would work well. I actually love this colour, ever since I used it to knit some gloves for a swap.

I love the cables on this hat and how they create this gorgeous crown…just a shame that when I wear it I can’t really see it.

Here are some shots of me wearing the hat:

FO: Gloves for Me

I swear even though I’ve not been blogging, I’ve been really, really busy knitting! I can promise that I can keep you busy with FO posts for at least a month. So, the first one finished project I want to start with is a pair of gloves for myself.

You might rememeber I knitted some gloves for a friend who I did a swap with, I blogged about it here. Because I loved the gloves, I decided to make myself a pair.

Purple gloves...I knit them in the DROPS Merino Extra Fine blue, I did try to get hold of the purple, but was unable to. But it does actually match my purple Winter coat. And oh boy, did I need these this cold Winter. It’s been way too long and cold, although there’s finally some light at the end of the tunnel, or rather some sun!

IMG_1665I love the cable detail on these gloves and especially the fact that each individual finger still has the cabling on it.

IMG_1666The gloves really are great, they’ve kept me toasty warm. And I made the same pair for my mum, in a different colour, but I will make sure to post about them another day!
