A Knit Necklace!

Well, I have been very busy tagging hats and blankets - 4,507 hats so far and 448 blankets!  And I have noticed that work and life just get in the way of knitting sometimes. 

But, I have managed to get a couple more hats knit for Delaware Head Huggers in the past few weeks.....

And then I wanted to make some type of necklace for my niece's birthday gift...........a lot of patterns I found were too large and detailed........I wanted something kind of simple..............so I was playing around with ideas and came up with this:  I made a 4 stitch i-cord using Vanna's Glamour yarn that I had in my stash and made it about 17 inches or so........a little looser than choker length on me. I attached the owl button and crocheted a thin chain that I turned into a loop to finish the clasp. Hopefully she likes it. Now, I'm planning on trying other types of metallic yarn and I'm going to add some charms and different clasps to see what works best.

Well, I've got yarn calling my name from the other room.

Happy Knitting!

  2. Hi Gloria! Right now our latest total is 5,974 hats!!! We just keep on knitting!

    Each hat gets tagged with a card (similar to a business card) that states it is from DE Head Huggers and a gift. They are attached with yarn so they can easily come off. The labels to sew are very nice, but it would be too much work for this....and the labels might irritate some people's skin.

    Congrats on starting to knit! I've been knitting a little over 2 years and I love it! Keep going - it's a wonderful way to relax.

    The striped hat is a Lion Brand pattern - found here: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80828AD.html?noImages=
    It's called the School Colors Hat. It's free, but you have to register (also free) on the site.
