Begin New Projects or After the Holiday Rush

My next BIG project is gnome hats in the granite stitch. I found this pattern in Knitting Today Dec2011/Jan 2012 issue and will be knitting them out of Red Heart SuperSaver for a February event. I have 10 to knit by Feb 1. Here we go!

The first one, pictured here, is done per the pattern without the double knit brim, however for this use it is too small. So, I have gone up to a size 9US needle and am trying it again. This RH yarn is heavier than some and needs some more room to make a decent stitch definition. So far, I think this might be the right combination.

I hope so because I still have 10 to knit and the clock is ticking. I hope everyone has fun projects to start the year~!
