My Try at Duplicate Stitch

Handmade Design by Jeannie Phillips

It needs work....I think I needed to use two threads when doing the duplicate stitch....but it's done now... My nephew, Trey's hat was too small... so I had to make him another one...I asked what he wanted...he said a black and white hat with a Red A... so this is the best I could do... for my first try... I hope that he is happy .. he is 8...and this is what he wanted... so I think that he will be happy!... it was a learning experience for sure.
Thanks for looking ... Hugs, Jeannie

Robby's First Hat!!

Handmade by
Robby Phillips ~ Southside AL
Don't you think he did a beautiful job!!.... My sweet husband Robby is out of work due to a foot injury he got while delivering his UPS packages.... looks like 12 weeks recovery.... hopefully not surgery..... anyway he is antsy, because unlike me he is a "busy" person and doesn't sit still to good (and he needs to!!)... day before yesterday I said something like I need to get this finished because I need to make Pastor Whimpy's hat... he said "Can I help?"... I gave him a loom and set him to work... didn't he do a beautiful, beautiful job!
Thank you for looking!  Hugs, Jeannie

Baby Toboggan - DaLoom Baby Loom

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL

I made this hat on my DaLoom's Baby Loom... it is fine gauge loom... I have to tell you this took 63 rows...and there are 74 pegs on this this hat has 4662 stitches... handmade stitches!!... but it has been so much fun!!!  It took me a while to make but I love the small stitches...and the wind is not getting trough this hat!!... I can tell you I can't imagine making a scarf on a fine gauge loom...that could take forever!! For Christmas I am getting the set of 7 FG round looms... I can't wait!  Thank you Provo Craft for introducing me to Loom Knitting!!  I love it!

Just a Note

My sweet husband Robby, who works for UPS... twisted his foot delivering boxes on Tuesday... boxes went flying... his board went flying... two ladies came flying out the door to check on him...and a ligament in his foot pulled a chunk of bone from his bone... we were at the ER Wednesday morning and at the doctor yesterday... He has been taking care of me (when he was home to) because of my surgery... doing great but not 100% yet.... now we have had to switch roles....and boy have I found out how I am still not over surgery... still tired from it... and second but most important just how much Robby does for me!!

I still have lots to accomplish for Christmas... and am accepting the fact that we are going to do Christmas this year in a bit of a mess...but being together is the most important part!

I got in some new looms.. working on the one last hat I need to finish...but these fine gauge looms... well they take a lot longer... more pegs, smaller stitches... I can't wait to see my first hat on this loom!!

I hope that everybody has a very Merry Christmas!

Toboggan with a "t"

Designed by
Jeannie Phillips~ Southside AL
I sure picked the wrong yarn for this hat...the black running through the camo thread ended up solid black in places where I needed it to be a lighter color... then I had to undo like 12 rows of this hat...and I don't have time!! I still need to make one more least its a baby hat.... I can do this one over for Trey after Christmas if he doens't like it...He is in the second grade...I thought he might like the monogram hat!!.... I just wish that I was happier with it!  Hugs, Jeannie

Ear Flap Hat

Handmade Design by Jeannie Phillips
I read how to do ear flaps in Isela Phelps book.... and where you put the flaps on the peg to add them to the hat... I marked those pegs on the next to smallest loom... laid it in the middle of my purple loom and laid thread across the middle of both looms to make a cross and marked the center point on both looms... I used this as a guide to decide how to big to make my ear flaps...then I just winged it from there...I knitted these from the end of the strings up!!...I was so so excited when it turned out and the flaps were in the exact right place!  This is for my niece Katy for Christmas... she will be in high school next year and their school colors are Blue and White... I so hope that she loves it!!  Thank you for looking!  Hugs, Jeannie

Toboggan w/Stick Man

Handmade Design by Jeannie Phillips

The toboggan that I made yesterday was just shy of 8 came just above my husbands earlobes... this one is 9 inches tall ... it is for my son and he said his ears are getting this one is made to completely cover his ears and come down to his brows and his neck.... This is a sweater motif and I had to modify it to make the stitches per inch match both vertically and horizontally... it takes a minute to see the stick man... so mostly it looks like a geometrical design... then  you see the stick man... I think (hope) that he loves this when he opens it at Christmas... Thank you so much for looking!!!   Hugs, Jeannie

Toboggin with Knitting Motif

Handmade by Jeannie Phillips
I am beyond excited about this hat!!!...I used Chunky yarn on the purple knifty knitter... the chunky yarn is wonderful!!... this toboggan to me really looked special!!... the brim is just one layer not brought up through the middle... I did in in KKP,KKP.... and the top of the hat is all K stitches... I bought a used book 1000 Great Knitting Motifs... it is more for sweaters... I didn't realize that when I bought this... I can't imagine that I could ever make a sweater... but I was beyond excited that I put this design into this hat... Thank you so much for looking!!  Hugs Jeannie
