Hats are like potato chips

No one can eat knit just one!

Debbie asked in the comments of my last post, "What's next on your knitting projects?" As you can see, I finished a second Elven Cloche, top, and last night I cast on a third! Blame it on the Olympics, and Romi's creative genius. A group of us on Ravelry who love Romi's designs are participating in the "Romilympics" just for fun, and I am nothing if not goal-oriented. I finished my handspun Toque, Yo faster than I thought I would, so I've been spending the rest of the Winter Olympics using up bulky yarn in my stash to knit Elven Cloches. The celery-green one will be my last; after all the quick, colorful gratification, I think I'll be ready to cast on Mr. Brownjeans.

That's it for today from . . .

Cute, cute, cute. They look like fun knits! Excellent Olympic projects.

Adorable!!! Would you consider selling some of your work?

They ARE fun, Nancy Kay!

Sandy, most designers do not allow you to sell what you knit from their patterns, which is why the only hat I've sold is the cat's paw beanie I designed myself. (Plus, in most cases the hourly wages would be so small as to be laughable; much better to give hand knits to those who will appreciate and wear them.)

I agree with you absolutely. I made my own hat pattern and have lost track how many I've knitted over the years. Everyone is different and fun. I love the elf top on yours - cute1
