Hats for Christmas 2006

I am getting ahead in my double pointed needles, and I am half way done with another hat in reds and greens in a circular needles. The pattern is very funky and the material is very nice. 100% merino wool Aurora 8 from Karabella.

I also got some new yarn for socks today from Smiley yarns, lots of great colors and nice textures with different kinds of wool blends. I am attemping to do some knited socks later on, here is a picture of my crochet socks.

I am very excited because I think I got back my kniting groove again. Woohoo! I am working on many projects, but it keeps my neuropathy away of I take turns between crocheting and kniting.

Will keep you posted.

What hat pattern are you using. I'm doing the half dome right now. Not sure its going to turn out right. Have you ever done the magic loop? I think its much easier than double points. I think both methods have their advantages, but I think I prefer the magic loop.
