seeming to find myself even more drawn to orange





the basic honeycomb pattern

row 1: i repeated the *c2b & c2f* for the first row (when you repeat the honeycomb pattern the next time around, so on your sixth round you switch c2f, c2b, ect)
row 1-3:the other 3 rows just knit across on circulars

*C2B: Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold to back of work; k2, then k2 from cable needle. C2F: Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold to front of work; k2, then k2 from cable needle.





i'm anticipating this toque will be getting lots of tobogganing action soon!
i'd like to re-knit the pattern with a longer brim & with a tad thicker yarn...

  2. Have you tried looking on Etsy for supplies? A lot of people destash that way. I have found the most random stuff there, like a walking foot for my sewing machine, or antique measuring tapes.

  3. I know the store www.joann.com
    Although, they don't take paypal, they have good prices.
    When I buy online, I use a visa debit card that is linked to my checking account. I only use whatever I have on this account so I don't overspend.
    Hope this help somehow.
    Have a great day!
