Pillow Sides

Finally I was able to upload a couple of pictures of my pillow sides. Both sides are the same stitch pattern using Cascade 220 yarn. The colors are greens, gray, and blue.

Returning to Knitting

Hi all. After about a year of not knitting, I have started knitting again. A friend of mine asked me to make him a "Rainbow" scarf.

First 3 Color Hat- a good learning experience

Hello all- Since Christmas, I have been working on learning how to use two colors in the same row in a basic hat. This has been a good exercise for me- practicing holding 2 colors in each hand, stranding the unused color in the back, keeping the tension even...Last night I decreased to the top of the hat...I had to rip this part of the hat out 3 times (frustrating but I guess this is part of the knitting process)...The sad part is the hat is finished but is too small...I need to add about 12 stitches to the brim to have a better fit. This finished hat would fit a large child.

Here is a photo of a striped garter stitch scarf with a few different shades of blue. I like the way the colors work together.
