Some Green Knitting

I made this set for my lucky cousin. I don't know why I spoil her so much ;) Currently I'm in the midst of crocheting a TON of roses for her wedding. ♥

April Sprinkles: Knit owl hat and camo circular scarf
April Sprinkles: Knit green owl hat
Hoo! Hoo!

























Scarf: Two camo yarns (Yarn Bee Bamboospun and Yarn Bee Boucle Traditions) held together and knitted with a p1k1 stitch (moss or seed stitch... I've heard it both ways). It is beyond soft and really fun to wear. I'm not a fan of camo, but this makes it look good!

Hat: I used the Ullu the owl pattern on Ravelry and Caron simply soft solids in dark sage.

Then finally I made something for myself!

























On our roadtrip across the U.S. we went to the Grand Canyon... in winter... I was very cold. Glad I had my favorite new hat to keep me warm! The cowl scarf is several years old and still my favorite. I used Angel Hair from JoAnne Fabrics and just knit it until it was almost gone and whipstitched the ends together.

Hat: I kind of based it off of a Twilight hat pattern, but not wanting to have any Twilight fangirls gushing over my hat, I changed it up a bit. (Plus the tiny stripes weren't my style.) If I wasn't wearing it so tight over my ears it would be slouchy, just like I like.

I've gotten so much better at knitting in the round, and also for this project I learned how to make "jogless stripes" and it turned out great!

Here is a (VERY bad, mirror) pic of the back of the hat
























Wow! That's a lot of green.
