Turn A Square

I love these hats! So far, I have made two of them out of stash Paton's Wool and Noro Kureyon and I plan on making two or three more for Christmas.

I am a huge fan of Jared Flood's designs. They are simple, but appealing. I have a couple more of his patterns queued up, including a sweater for Bill when I get around to it.

Well, we are about two months out from the Christmas travelling season, which means it's time to get down to some Christmas knitting! It seems that I will be knitting something for at least 6 different people this season, two hats for one person! The trick will be to do all of it from my stash.

One particular project was a very specific request, so I bought some Cascade 220 wool last month, but so far, nothing this month! I am very proud of myself for resisting temptation. I think I can actually make it all the way through the New Year with no more purchases!
