Coming soon... something different?

I really need to mix it up a bit and stop knitting slouchy hats. But I like them!
I'm currently working on yet another slouchy hat... in bright purple. After that I will start a new project. Hopefully!

I'm thinking about knitting up a tube scarf using circular needles.

The Shoey Slouchy Hat

This is the slouchy hat I made for Shoey; check it out:

About the Shoey Slouchy Hat:
I made it especially for Shoey, so I named it after her! It was a relatively quick knit, I started/finished it in 1 day. This was my first time working with this type of yarn.

Materials used:
Patons Melody Quick & Cozy (color: bright blue)

Quite honestly I didn’t write down how many increases/decreases I did; so sorry, no pattern for this one. What I do remember is casting on xx stitches and joining in the round and doing a K2, P2 rib for 6 rows, then just using the knit stitch for the rest of the hat.

Lattice Scarf (from knitzophrenic)

Here is the lattice scarf (pattern here from knitzophrenic) in a solid gray color. I tried blocking it because it curls in, but I've never blocked anything before and I failed. It is still curling in. I kind of like it that way!

I used the yarn that Sang bought for me from Viet Nam! :)
I knit this up with US size 7 straight needles.
