Share Your Stitches on Sunday

 I had completed the first blue/orange colorwork and wondered if....
 I could just load it on the LK150 and finish the stockinette part-even the short rows!
It was done in minutes! 
 I folded the hat in half and did a machine-knitting version of a 3 needle bind off.
 The I-cord can also be done this way....
 ......and it can be applied to the hat, too, 
and then I finished off the cord on the other side for the ties.  Done!
 The second hat I did entirely on the LK150--Fair Isle included!
In no time I had two little elf hats in the team colors for Syracuse University!
Going to my grand-nieces by mail on Monday!
