It has been a while since I’ve updated you on my 400 by 40 knit count. Not to worry, my needles are still clicking!

I am up to 33 knits (and who doesn’t love a good palindrome?).

These newborn Mock Rib and Eyelet Hats were so fun and quick to knit up. These were done a while ago and never made it into a post. The yarn is Lion Brand Cotton-ease.

These three hats were of my own creation knit in Cascade 220 Paint, I believe.

This Mini Thermal Vest was a great knit. I used a ball of Cascade Ecological that I had rolling around. The pattern gives 3 different sizes, all with a 100 stitch cast on. It is quick and easy and I will add the pattern to my Knit Again folder.

I still can’t get enough of the soft, squishy Cascade Lana Grande. I knit this variation of my Not-So-Slouchy hat (left) and the other hat I am, for the moment, calling Not-a-Knocker (it broke up a long string of Knitted Knocker knitting). I also knit 3 more Knitted Knockers and am still loving what a well-written pattern it is.

I hope you are having a beautiful weekend. Happy Father’s Day!

Best stitches~
