Pouch and Hat

Another Etsy listing. I knit this little pouch last year and it's just been put away in a cupboard. That's why I've decided to start selling some of my things. I don't know what to do with everything I make. This little cutey was knit from wool and then washed several times to felt it. I knit holes into it for the cord so it can be pulled almost closed. Aren't the beads pretty? I bought those at a great bead store in Lancaster.

Just finished knitting this little "Ring Around the Rosy" hat. This was a lot of fun to knit. About every six rows is a different pattern. The yarn is called "Mini Mochi" and it is 80% merino wool, 20% nylon and is washable. It's a very soft, light yarn.

Here's a close-up showing the patterns.

This is the top. Tonight I just finished knitting a little purple rose with beads on it to pin onto the side of the hat. It's late, so I'll get a picture of it later and put it up. I haven't decided yet whether to sell this or not.

  1. I didn't know that little bit about wool and felt... I hope I remember it whenever the time rolls around that I get out the old needles!
