Baby, it's cold outside...

I know my blog's called "Crocheting in Georgia" but did you guys know I also knit? I've been on this beanie kick where all I want to do is knit these ski hats (or beanies) and I thought I'd show them to you. They are all unisex and "one size" because I use the very stretchable rib pattern, so some might fit a bit more relaxed, some a little more snug, but basically, they will stretch to fit pretty much every head size. Just on a side note: these babies take me all day to knit, but they are solid and very warm. Somehow I think knitting takes longer than crocheting, but I suppose it's all what you are more used to. I generally crochet more, but also enjoy knitting. This one is maroon or claret and actually a bit darker than on the photo. This one is my favorite because it's white and it reminds me of snow - or a ski bunny! I purposely made this hat a bit smaller to fit a child (or teen) and just for fun, I added a pom-pom. I had fun making this beanie because I really like these two bright colors together. It's a nice, safe hat to wear at night. You can find all those in my Etsy shop here. I might start another because I really enjoy making them. The pattern is simple enough that I can knit whilst watching a movie and not lose my place. Besides, it's getting chilly at night and a good time to be wearing these nifty little head and ear warmers. The cuff can fold way down over the ears. So, that's what I've been doing, just FYI - if you want one and have a particular color in mind, let me know and I'll stitch it for you - Oh, by the way, all my Followers get 25% off on these hats, just because I enjoy and appreciate you guys!

Hi Doris, the church on my post today was used for symbolism. That is the Basilica of St. Peter at the Vatican. As I said If we are forced to not worship I was referring to the catacombs in Rome. Thanks for visiting.

Those are so nice Doris.

Now better to cry and have emotion than be a bunch of stones.

Love Renee xoxo

ooohh! I've got my eye on the green and orange one!

Doris Sturm said...

I know it does look green and orange, but it's really bright lime green (brighter than the photo actually) and true crimson red. For some reason, I just happen to love those two colors together ;-)

Wonderful beanies!! I am stalking the pink one. :)

Stephanie & Baby said...

That maroon beanie is probably my favorite!
You're so talented. I wish I knew how to knit/crochet.

Renee said...

Doris I love to hear the story of you and your Dad and listening in on the conversation.

Thank you.

Doris I am glad you stopped over to visit me today and take a peak at Isabel's run, she sure does love cross country.

She also plays violin for two years, I love to listen to her practice its a wonderful afternoon delight. My great grandmother played the violin and Isabel dreamed of playing since she could talk, talk about the circle of life. She was a natural.

Have a blessed day,
Heidi
