One each day for the past three days, I started knitting and completed a hat! No I’m not going to keep up that pace as I have other projects to work on too. But it was a nice challenge to myself and a way to see how the new yarn that I dyed last week would look in a project. I’ll be dyeing some more before too long!
For Wednesday’s hat I used a pattern found on Ravelry written by Carol Tyler. Instead of using the thick and thin wool by itself, I combined it with some of the leftover (shawl) sock yarn that had been the inspiration for the dyes I had used for this skein of lumpy. It was a quick fun knit on large needles, so to keep the fun going I finished by adding a tassel of sorts!
Thursday’s hat was another sample of a pattern that a friend designed to go with my hand spun. The pattern will be given free with the purchase of 100yds. or more my yarn this summer. Plus I wanted to make a hat that wasn’t specifically for a woman. (The brown color is more realistic in the first picture than this one)
Today’s hat was another of the skeins I had dyed, using the same pattern as Wednesday’s, but making some modifications to the straight stockinette stitch by throwing in some random purls and using a solid hand spun for a more stable band than the thick and thin gave on the first one.

Oh, I miss the days when I knew how to knit. Unfortunately I forgot how to start, even though if you give me something with the first row already made, I can still take it from there.
My favorite way of “casting on” is to actually knit on…start with your slip-knot stitch, knit into it, don’t drop the first stitch but place your new one on the left needle next to it, keep knitting a new stitch and transferring, easy first row 🙂
I can see you not taking time to knit when you are so busy weaving your wondrous stories!
Thanks for stopping by.
The blue hat is so cute…up my alley.

Thanks, I just finished a matching cowl with the leftover yarn from the third one. Now to get things labeled and packed, ready for a craft show at the end of the month! If you’re in my area stop by and try it on 🙂
