A long time coming.

This post has been a long time coming, indeed.
I had a slight mishap mid December and suffered a badly sprained ankle and it pretty much put the kibosh on most of my holiday plans. It took 4 weeks for me to be coherent enough to knit with any creativity and sense, but I have managed to create 5 patterns to share with you.

Here, now, for your knitting enjoyment are 3 hats, a scarf and a pair of socks.
Oh, Helen!

Raindrops on Roses Beret

A beret that can be knit slouchy or very slouchy, as shown.

Aaron's Awesome Jubilee Hat

Another slightly slouchy toque with a touch of texture.
This time, diamonds and stripes.

Little Stephanie Sunshine
Mobile device compatible version available.  Yet another slightly slouchy toque with a touch of texture. This time an all over pattern of delicate diamonds.

And finally,
Miss Mary Lou
Sassy, cute and girly. That's Miss Mary Lou!
This sock has a simple toe up construction with short row heels and toes. No picking up heel stitches. No Kitchener stitching toes. Reinforced on the heel and ball of foot to add durability.
Works with Double pointed needles, Magic Loop or Two circulars.
Shown with optional ruffled cuff.

That's all for now.
More news and knitting, as it happens.

Upcoming pattern spoiler!!!
It's going to be lace, kids!
