Knitting-in-the-Round



OK, a while back I sort of mentioned that I was learning knitting-in-the-round.

That's when you use several needles
                                     
                                                              source



or circular ones 
To make tubes. ...Like for sleeves, hats...etc
                                                 source




The double pointed needles are often used for smaller work.

Like booties
                             
                                                    source


or teeny sweaters
                               
                                                       source





or even a cool hat
                           
                                             source






  This book
                           
                  caught my eye at a bargain book store and I thought it would be fun
         


I purchased it and took it home. Now I am not proficient in knitting, but after consulting tons of YouTube tutorials I was able to make sense of it all





and  I made










                          and





I actually made three But I gave one away to my little almost three year old niece

These were so much fun and I am already working on a fourth...what I will be doing with them I still don't
have a clue, but in the meantime.....


                      maybe I'll make for them!
