Hats, Hats and More Hats

Gads, you would think all I do is knit hats! Remember I made two for my nephews, the Hello Kitty hat and the baby hat? I talked about those in earlier posts. Well, I knit five more, all for men: one for each of my boys, and one each for my dad and hubbie. I enjoy knitting hats a lot but am now on to some other projects. Right now I'm knitting a shawl for Kaleigh for Christmas and working on a counted thread embroidery Biscourni. I adore counted cross-stitch and various kinds of needlework and am happy to get back to it. My next counted thread embroidery meeting is at the beginning of next month and we'll learn how to put the Biscourni together. I've never made one before so this should be interesting.
I would also like to make a couple Christmas pieces for myself but will see if I can. At least one seasonal piece would be nice to complete for myself.

I am once again in awe of your knitted lovelies. Those hats look like they will keep many heads warm.
I used to do counted cross stitch when the kids were little. My first dabble in to the world of crafts. What is Biscourni? Can you snap a pic of what you are working on?

PLEASE share this looks just like Isaac's favorite hat that he keeps misplacing and I'd like to knit some replacements. Is it an online pattern or maybe we need to meet at Starbucks?
