A very good friend gave a huge amount of yarn because she no long is able to knit. I have made a number of afghans, a baby blanket and scarves. Here is a very easy knit toque I made today to keep out the winter cold. I used angorel yarn, 20 stitches on size 12 needles and knit enough rows to fit around my head. I then joined the two narrow ends together, gathered one side for the top and turned the hat right side out. I added a large button and a tassel. I plan to make some more to keep a few heads warmer this winter.
Here is the penguin ornament I made out of a black knit glove, some orange and white felt, stuffing and googly eyes. All he needs now is a ribbon attached to his head so he can be hung on a Christmas tree.
