Knitting Up A Storm!

I have been continuing on with my Craftsy class and enjoying it immensely! I finished the second project, a chevron beanie.Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 10.08.12 AM

Although you cannot see it, it has quite a few mistakes, but for my 3rd hat ever AND my first with cables I think it turned out great. Only thing? Too small for my head, I needed more length as it sits above my ears.

The next project in the class is fingerless gloves but they are done are DPNs in the class and when I tried to do it on magic loop the lace pattern was asking for stitches to be slipped that were on both needles etc, so I put that aside, for now. I cannot seem to get the hang of the DPNs which is why I tried magic loop. I do have some 16″ ChiaoGoo circulars coming, maybe I will try them :)

Last night I spent the evening working on Continental style knitting – it is suppose to be faster and I’m all about speed in my crochet so although I keep saying I can only knit English style…I haven’t given up yet!
