Intarsia Cable Hat... A cute and funny success

I just finished this sample for a class I'm teaching at Close Knit this summer.  It's made to compliment the Saartje's Booties from the post below.  The cable is knit in using Intarsia with the three little "legs"  knit first and then added into the knitting.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out even though it kind of looks like a three eyed monster.  Charlie looks like a cute little girl with his long hair peeking out the bottom of it.  I'm working on a second sample in the new Rowan Pure Life for the Knitting Bee.  I can't wait to get the pattern written for everyone to try!

Hi there.  I'm re-energized about blogging again.  I guess that means that I have a little bit of time on my hands.  That's nice.  Anyway, I made these booties from a pattern that I found on Ravlery.  I'm going to be teaching a class on them at Close Knit this summer.  I'm so excited about them then I'm in the process of designing a hat that matches. Cool.
