Seeds Hat

>> Thursday, June 16, 2011

Awhile back I won a giveaway that Chris had on her blog and by awhile I mean six months ago, eek this year is flying by.    She gave away one of her patterns (they are all gorgeous) and the yarn to complete it.  In the last few months I have totally lost my knitting energy and in an effort to reclaim it I grabbed my winnings and cast on.

It was so nice to pick up some knitting and know that it would all work out beautifully because the author of the pattern sent you everything in order to complete it.  My fingers got quite the workout....along with my brain because I am not a practised color work knitter.  Isn't the top gorgeous? 

I also did my first hem with this piece.  The brim starts with plain stockinette and after a bit you switch to the color pattern and then when that is long enough you hem it as you knit.  So neat and finished looking I love it.  Not to mention that it tucks in all the loose ends from the start and so you have hardly any finishing when it is done. 

This was just the thing I needed to get my knitting desire back.  Something small that was easy to tote around with me and quickly finished.  Perfect!  Thank you Chris for the pattern, I loved it!

It looks so nice!!I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm working on the chart right now to make a matching mitts pattern. I'm glad you got your mojo back!

your "not a practiced color work knitter"? are you kidding? this is awesome. you won't be able to say that again! I think I would have picked "toast" to get my mojo back...a much simpler re-entry. :)
