Okay, I'll reconsider my position on hats

>> Thursday, June 4, 2009

OK you guys. I knit up a hat. I decided after reading your comments that maybe I should knit something up quickly and reconsider my hat opinion. I grabbed the leftover skein of yarn from my axel mitts and hunted around ravelry. I found this pattern and love the blog so I thought why not?


Light not so great, we are in the middle of a ten day thunderstorm forecast and if I wait for good light then I might miss June completely. It was really fast and oh my it is super super warm. I was sweating like crazy after trying to take some pictures. There were quite a few shots of either the top of the hat or the bottom of my chin. This was the only one that turned out halfway decent. I like it a lot, except there is a little puckering at the top and after looking at the pictures I think I am going to go fix that, maybe add a row or two between decreases to smooth it out. Total instant gratification knit. Now where are all your hats :)?

It looks great! I love her blog too. I started a hat last night and got some yarn from my LYS today (yes.I bought new yarn)to make a second hat, though I'm in the middle of a KAL for some socks and have 3 sweaters going, so who knows what I'll get done...

I've knit that hat and it is a favorite! I love that color.

That's adorable on you!!! Great color choice and cute style. It's a winner :)

I would smooth out that top, though, as you will enjoy wearing it more. The style is rather like the Banana Republic hat, except that has a button on the side, and it has been on my to do list 4ever!

Ha, ha... that's why hats are my favorite to knit! Almost everyone in my family has at least one and I have several, one for each jacket.

Your hat looks really nice! I have a weirdly shaped head and can't wear knit hats, mostly. Sometimes a beret. But they usually don't stay on my head.

Hats are really instant gratification...I love knitting them up--the color, I agree, is great!

I've knit four of those...so quick and easy-just how knitting should be. :)
