Knitting Projects

Bubs learned how to finger knit on YouTube. Ahh. Technology. He made this flower after we watched this tutorial.

And, now that the snow (Oh no! Not snow!) has arrived, my fingers have been busily making hats.

This bottom one was way cuter in real life.

These hats are loom knitted. (I purled the bottom few rows and knitted the rest.) The flowers are crocheted. I learned how to make them on YouTube, too. Here's the link, if you're interested.


  1. Hello Emily,

    My name is Caitlin and I'm one of the editors for a free knitting website called I absolutely love the hats you've made! If you would ever be interested in having our site link to your patterns please let me know. we are always looking for pattern submissions.



  2. Thanks for the inspiring post. I decided to crochet a beanie type hat today after reading this. I loved the flower you made but mine didn't turn our nearly as cute. I figure I did pretty good though since it has been over 10 years since I have done any crocheting. It felt great to keep my fingers busy as I watched my Dr Quinn dvds tonight. Thanks again for the inspiration. (Now I just wish I hadn't cut my hair short so it doesn't look so awkward. Maybe my daughters will enjoy it.) :)
