Hats and Scarf

Yarn: light purple wool 2 balls
Needles : addi circular #10 (for hat) DPN #5 and Clover crochet#5 (for flower)
Patterb: from my Knitting teacher
Duration: 2 days

In Taiwan we don't have many chances to wear hats except cold days. When the first time I saw this hat, I was so impressed by it and decided to knit it.
This hat is very easy to knit as you can see it just have " knit and purl" for the hat, but the flower is a bit of work. It has to be finished by using the crochet and circular and at last the furry ball.
It is a bit work but turn out a beautiful flower !

Yarn: Black wool Scarf 3.5 balls Hat 2 balls
Needle: addi#8 for edge, addi #10 main part
Pattern: Japanese patter
Duration: 4 weeks

This hat and scarf is for my Seattle friend.I usually don't knit black yarn because it is hard to find wrong stitches. So I never ever knit black. When I asked him what colour he liked,he replied" black".I............wondered why he picked BLACK ..............
Since he likes black, I find this easy pattern to knit. Because it is easy , finding the wrong stitches will be easier.

In Taiwan, if I want to gift my friends scarfs or hats, they usually said" no, thank you. it was hot in Taiwan. We didn't need scarfs or hats." But this Seattle friend said" ohh.. I needed your scarf. In Seattle ,winter was usually cold. Even at home ,I wrapped scarf ,too" His words really inspired me.He needs my scarf and hat. I was happy to knit them and done it quicker than other FO

I like both hats but my favorite is your purple one with the flower. That is so lovely! It is so nice when someone appreciates what you knit for them isn't it?
