Toque picture as requested...


On friday Lori and Emily convinced me that I could in fact make a toque for my brother. He was wanting a new one and after he suggested it, I wondered if I could in fact do it. I had never knit on the round before and so I thought it might be fun to try. I only used wool that I had here, borrowed some circular needles and so began the process. A couple of things I learned....use the suggested weight of wool, and knit to the measurments the pattern suggests even if you think it will be far too long. I short changed the length by a few cms and the wool was much heavier. It is however a very warm hat.

Friday the girls cheered me on, Sunday I finished it. I shall give it to him tonight with the promise of a proper one in another couple of days made to the proper specifications. I think this will be the gift of the year for all of Hud's brothers and nephews...
