Every Monday I will showcase something I’ve made based off of the Friday Palette. I hope you all will join in and tag Khaki & Chrome so I can see all of the awesome things you’ve made!

This week I made another Granny Square Baby Blanket for the shop. I really love the colors of this blanket. Friday Palette has really pushed me out of my color comfort zone and for the better!

This week I made a hat for my girls for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t check the guage on the pattern I had originally wanted to make for them, so it turned out small and it will become baby #3’s hat. I’ll post that hat tomorrow. I couldn’t find another hat that I liked, so I created my own pattern. It’s a slouchy hat with “X’s” and “O’s” cables. I love how it turned out and I’m curious to see it knit in a solid color.

This fabulous yarn is from The Lemonade Shop. My oldest likes to look at yarn with me on Instagram (and loves to know what the name of each colorway is) and she fell in love with this colorway, so I surprised her with it.

P.S. In one of these photos you can see a sneak peek of a new item heading to the shop soon!

This week I made a bento bag for my WIPs (work in progress) to keep from making a hot mess of my yarn and needles when I chuck them into my purse. I based the pattern off of one I found at Pretty Prudent.

This week I made a never-ending cowl which is why I’m posting on Tuesday instead of Monday! I used Red Heart’s “Boutique Unforgettable” in Bistro and Petunia. I cast on 75 stitches using size 7 needles, garter stitched until the end of the skein, then bound off. I then used an N crochet hook to single crochet for 15 rows and then slip stitch along the other side of the cowl to join it into a circle. I loved the way it turned out, but it just took way longer than I had anticipated!

This week I modified the “Hat Shaped Hat” pattern by Lindsay Ingram. I loved the pattern and how squishy the hat turned out. I have been waiting to do something out of this color palette for the longest time and now I want to make 10,000 more things out of these colors!

This week I made the Snood Operator by Wool and the Gang. I hosted and taught a “learn to knit” class with WATG on Saturday and we all made this snood out of some ridiculously good wool. I will post a class review on the blog this week!

This week I made a black and gold hat out of some yarn I’d been itching to use! I’ll be adding this hat to the shop before Black Friday. Speaking of Black Friday, everything in my shop will be 15% off and if you follow me on Instagram, I will be posting flash sales all Saturday for Small Business Saturday!
