Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Slow Sunday Stitching

 I’m a little late in writing and posting this today. We had the family down for a visit in our little space this afternoon, so of course that took precedence. Funny how we can all live in the same house but not actually see each other all at once all that often. 

I’m working on multiple slow projects lately, getting some further along and others finished.  

I’ve finished the scrap sock yarn scarf that I was making for my husband, but unfortunately don’t have a picture of it. Once I finished that I decided that I needed to make myself a Muskoka winter hat. I found a pattern that combines worsened weight and and bulky weight yarn knitted together to make a double layered hat. It’s called Heartfelt Hat. Here’s the outside where the bulky yarn shows the gold colour. And then the inside with the gold carried behind the rest of the yarns, making it the very warm and thick hat. My husband says it looks like cheeseies on the inside. It was a very quick knit. I have some yarn left over so I may make myself a pair of thrummed mitts with it.

In addition to the hat I’ve been working on my Peppermint Purple stitch along. I’m caught up into the month of September now.

And then I’m working on the beginnings of a new sweater. It’s by a new to me designer. The sweater is called Anisia. It doesn’t look like much at the moment. It is very challenging. I love all of her designs and the texture she achieves in her knitting. There may be more of her patterns in my future.

That’s it for today. I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.


  1. I agree with S about the cheezies on the inside of your hat!!! It will be a good hat to wear on the very cold days that are coming.

  2. I love that sweater pattern. It is going to be so pretty. The inside of that hat is something else. I don't think I need something quite that warm in my neck of the woods, but it is very pretty on the outside. Your stitch along is very pretty also. I like the many different designs and colors.

  3. LOL...love the cheesies name for the hat!! Looks like a very warm hat!!

  4. Love the hat! Your colour choices already make it look warm - and I agree with the Cheesies comment! I'm not quite as far along on the PP SAL - but it's not a race, right?
    That sweater is GORGEOUS!!! She's got some really stunning designs. Thanks for sharing her shop!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
