Scrap Fabric Knit Bracelets

Here's a fun idea for using up pieces of scrap fabric!  For both of these bracelets I used knit fabric, one was an orange and black striped knit and the other was a purple camo knit. 

I cut one inch width strips of fabric then cut a small hole on each of the ends to slip on strip through the other in order to connect them. 

I used U.S. Size 10 knitting needles and C.O. of 6 sts.  I knit for about 6 inches, till it wrapped around my wrist, then made a crochet chain for the loop at the end.

Happy knitting!

Black and Grey Hat

This is my latest hat, knit with Lion Brand Homespun.  I followed the same pattern I used for my purple / pink hat except I did a rib knit for the rim.

Although it's been warm for the past couple of days I did get to wear it on a trip to Merrill Creek Reservoir on Tuesday when it was pretty windy.

I can't wait for summer to go back, when everything's much greener.

We found this skull in one of the buildings next to the lake. :)

See ya later!
