Deborah Newton Stocking Cap from Vogue Knitting--Done!

As soon as I saw this wild and woolly stocking cap on page 67 of the Holiday 2011 Vogue Knitting, I knew my darling daughter would love it. It wasn't easy to knit; all the color changes, of course, and my own stupidity made it take much longer than it should have, but it's finished with plenty of winter left to wear it in, and my 2012 knitting year is off to a great start. January isn't over yet, and I've already completed something! Here's DD, back in her old room for a night, modeling her new cap.

What's next? I have lots of projects at the museum, and maybe I'll tackle a UFO or two. I've lost 30 pounds so far and nothing fits right, so I might just spend some time taking in my old clothes, although it would be a lot more fun to just make (and shop for) new ones.


  1. Someone brought your picture to my attention! I love the hat that I designed on your daughter! Great job!
    All the best, and happy knitting!
    Deborah Newton

    1. I'm a big fan of your work, Deborah! This hat is sheer genius! Thanks for visiting my (sadly neglected) blog.
