Cabled Tie Topper



Dpns, i-cords, simple fair isle, now all added to my knitting bag of skills. Thanks to great support from google who helped me find some excellent tutorials although I found the two colours a bit difficult to juggle and using dpns a bit awkward. Like everything with my knitting, I guess it takes practice. I hope this Cabled Tie Topper from Tot Toppers by Kate Oates is nice enough to gift to a friend's baby. It looks very cute (Brett said it looked very 'tricky') although Jordan wasn't really in the mood for wearing it or for photos. And this isn't a really nice photo of the hat, but a nice photo of my boy...there are two more little teeth coming down from the top now.
