Honeycomb Stitch Hat

Check out the model...isnt she adorable? Thats Hailey, my 7 year old daughter. This was my first attempt at finishing the honeycomb stitch pattern. I had tried (pic below) to make one with smaller (size 4) was that ever a struggle. Broke my needle and that was that. It was much easier on the bigger (size 9) needles. Anyhow, you can find the honeycomb stitch hat pattern on youtube. I have learned everything I know on youtube...much better than book patterns if you ask me.

Small Throw Blanket...

Trying to dwindle down my yarn stash, this is what I have come up with...a small throw for the couch. Knit in garter stitch. I am debating on adding a crochet border. I came very close to running out of yarn for each of the colors in this blanket and miraculously I finished by the skin of my teeth. lol. If I do a border it will be in a color that is similar...gotta use up the stash.

Aaaaaagh Drat!!!

Seems to be my luck lately...I learned a new stitch pattern (Honeycomb) and of course...wouldnt ya know it? My darn needle breaks right after the first use. Talk about frustrating. I am using bigger needles and attempting to make another hat with this pattern so please look forward to another post of the finished results.
