These are most of the hats that I've been churning out in the past few weeks. Most use the Reynolds Lopi. The small ones are going to be gifts for my newest grand neice who is due next month. The purple and green striped one is the "umbilical cord" hat from the Stitch N Bitch book, and the furry blue one was just my own "let's see what happens when I do this" design. A couple will be just for me, and I will send a couple of them for the Dulaan project. I think the green one in the back might be what Mel used for his Dulaan hat and I agree, it does look like ass on it's own. I like the way the blue one on top almost looks like faded denim.
Out of all the combinations; what is your favourite stitch and why?
Just curious if there is anyone else that has done or who is doing round loom knitting? I'm working on a 3 panel blanket and have been enjoying it. I want to work on a sweater but don't understand regular patterns, let alone the patterns for the round loom. I found a website that shows a lot of styles of knitting that you can do with the loom, such as cable, stocking, etc. The greatest thing about round loom knitting is you get very fast results in a short period of time. Great for beginners that may want to move on to needles and hooks!

Hi! I'm a new(ish) knitter working on my first big project. I've done a lot of toques, scarves, and mittens and am now starting my first sweater. And by starting I mean I bought all the wool and everything and now I can't start.
The pattern says to cast on 35 sts using the long-tail cast-on method (which I think is how I was taught anyway, so that's fine) but then it says to work triple yarn-over cast-on for 40 more stitches. And then later to drop certain yarn-overs.
I am confused! How do I do a triple yarn-over and then how do I drop the yos?
Can anyone help me?
Yesterday I was sitting in the sun, knitting away at a sock, and it occured to me just how much I loved the colors in the wool. I usually knit in the evening, so had never seen the colors so clearly. Since enjoying the wool is so much of the joy in knitting, I realized I have to get better lighting for my evening knitting. Any suggestions for good light sources? A lot of little task lights that I see are halogen--I love the quality of the light, but it's too hot. What do you all use to see your knitting after the sun has set?
