At A Snail's Pace....and a Giveaway!

Speed Knitter, I am not!
Over the course of the past
two weeks, I wound up 
two skeins of Cascade EcoWool.
With no set plan, I started to knit......

hats.
At a definite snail's pace!


A little in the morning, a little in the evening, 
and I napped with the knitting in my lap from time to time
this past week.

Still, I knit....slowly...but I knit!

I've finished two of these...
 

using size 8 needles

And I knit two of these...
 

using 10.5mm needles

Four hats.  I'm about hatted out for now!
But look....


still a full entire skein of Cascade EcoWool remains!
AAACK!  I can't take it anymore!

So I'm going to giveaway
this ball...
which is ready to knit into four hats of your own!
or a scarf!
or whatever you want!

Just leave a comment and tell me what you'd knit or crochet with this...
478 yards of woolly goodness!
I'll draw a name on Sunday and ship it off to the
winner on Monday!

*Peace!

Nice hats! I actually found a cool pattern for a scarf that has illusory skulls on it. So cool! Not sure if this yarn is the right stuff for it, but it's the right brand at least. :D

Nice hats! I'm thinking the other ball would make a nice thick warm scarf. :)

I love the hats! That's what I'd make, too! It's a great color! Thanks for the chance!

We have snow here (UK) so I'd knit hats and mittens!

Jackie said...

My husband needles some fingerless mitts and a hat and this yarn looks perfect for that!

Cari said...

Great fiber Kim...and a what a great friend you are to have a giveaway !! I'd knit up a hat or two for sure. My oldest granddaughter lives in Chicago and can always use another WARM hat! Thanks again !!

I'm not a knitter, so no need to count me in. Just wanted to say your hats looks great!

Beth said...

OMG, what a GENEROUS drawing! Please enter me in, I would probably make a hat too! Your came out so gorgeous! I only have one for myself and somehow or other it got holes in it.

Love that you got 4 out of a skein. If I won, I'd make hats. I've been wanting to do the slouched ones. Did you like the pattern?

Mimi said...

I'm thinking that a new scarf would be nice... I found a herringbone pattern last week that I want to try! Thanks for the chance!

Definitely a scarf. A nice long one and a hat. It is cold when I am standing outside filling the stock tank for the cows and horses. Lovely yarn.

I'd give a nice pair of house socks a try! Thanks for the giveaway.
