Beanie-A-Long............with Knitspiring Odyssey.

Good morning, my friends, it's official, Stephanie from Knitspiring Odyssey is doing her first knit-a-long. After mentioning it in one of her posts, a few people showed an interest in joining in, including myself. Stephanie has put a Mr. Linky up so everyone can join in and show what hats or beanies that you are knitting/crocheting, you can find it here.

She is hoping to post most Tuesdays, everyone can set their own personal goal, like Stephanie wants to get five beanies finished through the year. I don't have  a goal, if I see a hat pattern I like, I'll cast on, there's no pressure to finish on a certain date, it's all down to what you want. It's called Beanie-a-long with Me, BALWM, it can be knited or crocheted, just link up what your working on. Stephanie was very nervous about putting herself out there, so it would be lovely if you could support her, I know she would really appreciate it.

I've started another Ardvasar by Lucy Hague, I'm knitting this one for myself, I'm using Malabrigo Rios in Sandbank. It's a pure merino superwash, it's lovely to knit with, it feels warm and soft and also has the squish factor.

I really love this pattern and will be making some for Christmas gifts, because it's an Aran weight, they knit up quite quickly. The Celtic Cables look quite intricate but are surprisingly easy to do, if you can cable you can definitely do this.

That's it for me, I hope you can pop over to Stephanie's blog and say hello or even better join in, the more the merrier.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Deb, what a lovely idea by Stephanie and if I can find some time, I will try and join in with a crochet project. I have quite a few beanies to make before Christmas. I love your project and the choice of yarn and colour, it is going to be lovely when finished. Enjoy working your beautiful beanie. Wishing you a happy week xoxo

That's a lovely idea, I could do with knitting or crocheting a couple of beanies for my daughter actually... The one you are working on looks gorgeous and the yarn is such a nice colour.

Hi Deb love this idea of everyone together doing something. Will certainly pop over to see her and leave a comment. Your hat looks fabulous, love the colour and the yarn - I have never knitting a hat before except baby ones and am a little nervous about doing one for some silly reason beyond me. However I am going to have a look for a pattern and give it whirl. Thanks for a fabulous post as always Debs
Lots of love
