A little Toque-n

I made this little toque for someone. I'll be sending her the link to the photo today and see if I can send it off soon. Hope she likes it!

Yarn: 1/2 ball of Gedifra Fashion Trend stripe and almost one complete ball of a purple/muliticolor wool bulky yarn that I was gifted.
Pattern: Self-designed, 3 x 3 rib, knit flat then decreases in pattern til there is no more pattern left!
Needles: Size 8 US Addi's. (Both yarns were bulky weight, but I wanted a thick fabric for extra warmth).

I needed something to knit yesterday while at the Rabies Shot clinic, so cast on for a quick toque in the morning, and it was done by bedtime. I wanted something easy and quick, and this fit the bill! I also recently remembered that I had promised to knit 2 people hats waaaaay back when.

(I also cast on for a fun and quick drop stitch scarf yesterday, with some clearance yarn I happened to pick up last week...also to be a gift!)

Other than that, I really want to start gardening, Spring is coming. I have bulbs beginning to poke through the ground, and tendrils of green are starting to re-appear. Can't wait.

Very pretty!

Are you originally from Canada? Or the Northern US?? Just the use of the word Toque kinda threw me off to see your are in New Mexico. :)

Very cute hat! Love the colors, and with bulky yarn it's such a quick knit.

I got your comments. :)

I don't really know that much about the cost of beer making, as my fiance had all of the equipment before we started dating. It's pretty easy to do though and I think you can buy basic kits for around $50 or so.
