Crap. I’ve done it again.
I’ve been debating wiping the blog out and starting fresh (just because I think it’s pretty embarrassing that my last post was in October…of the sewing machine I bought in August) but I think I’m going to just leave it up. Nobody’s reading this pile anymore, anyway.
So, back to business. I finished a new hat.
I was skeptical about this hat for several reasons. As I knitted it, the brim seemed very odd to me. The picot edges seem a lot larger than I had expected and I thought it might look silly. I also was concerned with not having enough yarn in the end (I used two skeins Blue Sky Alpacas Sport Weight Baby Alpaca) so I decided to begin the decreases early. I think if this yarn was thicker and I was planning on using it as a winter hat, I would have ripped back and knitted it longer, but I’m satisfied with using it for a spring hat.
On Ravelry? See the details here. And hey, add me as a friend. I like friends.
