Improvisational Knitting

Improvisation was the theme last night at knit group -- that and spiked eggnog.  We tried to avoid topics of gauge, directions, and rules.  Opting instead to grab needles, cast on, increase or decrease accordingly, and change yarn on a whim.  In this fashion we progressed in the creation of tube hats ala Tracey.  The hat starts with the brim -- a mix and match yarn, 24" circumference, 5" high brim -- which folds up and over the body of the hat.   We had so much fun, we're extending the improv session into next week's get together. 

We all brought stash yarn to share -- here's mine.

My improvisational brim in the works -- the body of my hat will be turquoise blue.

What a fun idea! I might have to try this myself.

Looks like fun! I am sure that the spiked egg-nog helps a bit with the improvisation!

Baby, I like your stash;-)

Sounds like fun! Now, what does it say that the stash you brought (surely not your *entire* stash) contains far more yarn than I own?

(walks off to ponder this, then considers buying more yarn)

Ohhhh, I like this idea!

What a great idea! Everyone must have been drooling over all the yarn in the place. Lol!

Yummy looking!
I started a pair of I-cord gloves. I really shouldn't have as I have so much to make for presents. I have 2 pinkies and an index tip. I hope I can keep my hands off of them until after Christmas.
Thanks for this pattern

I have started and put down my i-cord gloves several times because I am getting large holes in between the fingers....Any ideas? You should know that I would never have even tried to knit gloves without your serialized instructions... and I will try again! Thank you for the pattern!
