Gwen Stacy hat..

My daughter wanted the Gwen Stacy hat from the Spiderman movie. I found a free pattern for it on Raverly... How awesome these women put up free crochet and knitting patterns for us, love them.

I've come to not be afraid of using point needles, because I got some stoppers for the ends. I also have learned to make cables and bobbles. I hate making bobbles, they take too long, because I had to keep taking them out and doing over. LOL Mainly I've learned to not knit so tight. The first hat I made of this pattern was tighter using the 5 and 6 needles, so I went up to using 6 and 8 needles. I'm sure now the 5 and 6 needles would be fine since I'm crocheting a little more loose.My daughter likes beanie hats, so the 5 and 6 first hat is fine for her.

It's a cute hat, it's given me alot of practice and I'm getting faster at knitting. I think I'll make some more hats and try socks. This is so much fun, even though I spend alot of time taking out rows, because every once in awhile I miss one stitch.Doesn't matter just more practice. My pattern pages always look like they've been thru the wringer. I write on them, fold them, highlight. Then I put them in a notebook in a plastic cover, does that make sense? :) Anyone else trying to use them would probably go crazy.

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a good time planning for the Thanksgiving holiday. We're so cold here, but it makes it more cozy in the house. I'm excited about smelling turkey, stuffing and pies this week. :) Happy Turkey Day!!!

You are a true knitter, LOL, once I get the hang of all these new techniques I'll probably enjoy it alot more. I can crochet so fast and know when I make a mistake, because I know the stitches like the back of my hand. However, when I make a mistake in knitting I take most if not all of what I'm working on out to make sure it looks right when I'm done.:D I've actually come to love knitting though. I would love to do that Nordic look, the Scandanavian Christmas look of red and white, or whatever you call it, it's beautiful.
