FO Friday




This is the same hat I posted about on WIP Wenesday. It is now finished, this Thursday night. I am scheduling this post for FO Friday. Wouldn't want to miss it. lol If you want the particulars just scroll down a post.

I think I will pick something off my list to work on next. Come hell or high water, I will figure out how to make socks. I think I will give those a shot next and see how it goes. Can they really be that hard to do? So many people make them. I think sometimes, I make things harder than they actually are. I will post an update on Sunday with what I decided to do.
I hope you all have a wonderful and productive weekend. I only have Saturday off as I am working Sunday so there will not be much knitting time. Same a during the week. :(

Until next time...

I have bought yarn to make socks, but still haven't built up the nerve. I agree so many people do them, why can't I? Good luck, will look for them on Wednesday.

Great looking hat!! Do the socks - they are not hard once you get the swing of it and they are so addictive too!! You can do it and we want to see them too! ;-D

Your hat is great!
As for socks, they are simple. You just have to mindlessly follow the pattern the first time through. The heel may look intimidating but it's really just a few steps put together. Taking each one as they come is all you have to do. Good luck! I look forward to seeing your socks.

Great job! I love to knit hats, I use them when I need a quick fix in between long, boring items.

Sock are not hard; but the first couple of times through the instructions for the heel (and the toe) can be confusing.

Pick an easy pattern, and if you get stuck, ask on Ravelry!

You can do it!

I like the hat. :) Socks aren't on my list of things to try any time soon - I want more practice with other things first. Good luck with yours!

What a great, snugglesome hat!

I know what you mean about the socks. I think I'll have to try one day as I keep seeing such beautiful hand-knit socks, and I have such cold feet. I don't even know enough to tell whether a sock pattern looks easy or not. One day though...

A week with a finished hat is a good week, and your hat looks wonderful. Good luck with the socks, too. :)

I've made plenty of hats, but only one sock. Yes, ONE. LOL I don't even have a pair. That is crocheted, not knitted though. I wish you luck! You are brave. I often think the same as you - so many people do it so I should too. That and booties/mittens. I just can't get into them. I am pathetic. LOL
