here's my hat
Monday, March 10, 2008
Well finally finished my hat...and I say finally since all I had to do was add the ears, flower and facial features only to have my little miss try her hardest to pull off the whiskers and flower! I now need to redo the whiskers and flower to make sure they are Keira proof!!!

I love it and so does she

HK Doll Hat
Wednesday, February 20, 2008
Okay, I finally made it and is it ever cute cute cute! I made Oslofia's HK hat in tiny needles and yarn to fit an American Girl Doll! Whee is it ever cute on that doll!!!

I have forgotten how much fun it is to make doll clothes--I used to have a blast sewing clothes for my DD's American Girls 18" doll. It was such fun to knit this.

and now (drumroll, please).................

First is a grainy photo w/o flash.

That's a little better.

Hello Kitty doll hat posing on a skein of Socks That Rock yarn.

I must find DD's American Girl doll for a proper photo shoot.

(I'll have a pic of the hat on the doll soon.)

I love HK!!!!!!!

My mods: I used Dalegarn Baby Ull fine yarn with needles in U.S. size 1 to knit this (instead of worsted). And I made different ears by CO 18 sts, and doing garter stitch, with 2 dec every other row until there were only two st, then K2 tog and thread yarn through. I also embroidered the features with other yarns, instead of using felt. (I did adjust the hat slightly, by cutting out 4-5 rows overall.)

Now on to the next HK project! Thanks to Oslofia for the cute patterns :)

Wet Wool
Sunday, February 3, 2008
I finished my mittens! I am waiting for them to dry before I put my HK heads on them. This pair is almost too small!! I can barely get them over my hands. It could be because they are wet and they don't want to slide very well.

This was a really easy project that turned out really cool. I wanna make more! They are a great stash-buster, especially when you use different colored strands.

I can wait to take pictures of them, but cold wet wool on my hands isn't that appealing right now! hehehe

Question about Decreasing
Sunday, January 20, 2008
Hi -- Could someone advise regarding decreasing stitches in the knitted hat? I have completed the length to where I need to start to decreasing, and I am wondering what kind of decreasing stitch to use. In the past, I always k2tog to decrease, but this web page seems to say that k2tog creates a slant toward the right side. Should I k2tog on the left side of the hat but use a different technique such as slip-slip-knit (SSK) on the right side?

Thanks for any advice, and I apologise if this is not the correct forum for a question.


(P.S. I guess responses could go either here as a comment or on my ravelry page as a message. My email account is at gmail and my username is chollapete if you want to email me directly. Thanks!)

Hi, All -- Just a note to say that I've started. I've been scarce on the KAL blog, as I was embarrassed that I hadn't started yet. I'll save you the well-worn excuses. ;-) But I have begun and the body of the knitted hat is now about 2-1/2 inches (7 cm) long. Here's a picture of the casting-on. Love everyone's work. The thought of people around the world knitting along at the same time keeps me going. :-)

Editing in a Postscript: I just glanced at all the knitters blogs. Sorry, crocheters. :-) Mostly a bunch of crafty knitters, in deed. It's good to be associated with such a group of active people. Thanks, "Oslofia", for getting us together! Peace out.
