Brushwood Beanie progress

This hat is taking a little longer than I expected. I think it is because the pattern is mostly purling around. I'm enjoying how the color is working up, and seeing the slipped stitches carry little bits of different colors up the hat. It is going to be so cozy when it is finished.

Another day, another new cast-on, apparently. This is another hat that will eventually end up in the xmas gift pile. I've picked up a few hat patterns as they caught my eye, and I'm happy to have a chance to start trying some of them. I really like the look of this one so far,... Continue Reading →

Bankhead Hat

I started this hat almost immediately after binding off my Musselburgh. This one is a child size, knit as an xmas gift using yarn leftover from my Waffle Hat. It felt amazing to fly through this little hat in one day after spending so long working on my cardigan and my Musselburgh hat. I think... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat finished!

It's done! I knit it exactly to the length the pattern recommended, and the leftover yarn was less than 10 g. I probably could have made it a couple of rows longer, but I'm pretty happy with the size I ended up with. Plus this way I didn't have to stress out about yarn chicken.... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress (6)

My Musselburgh Hat has grown by several inches since the last time I showed it here. I've continued working on it while watching tv and it is coming along nicely. There's still around 30 g of yarn remaining in the cake so it looks like there should be plenty to knit to the pattern specifications.... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress (5)

I've been spending most of my knitting time working on my cardigan but I've still added a few rows to this hat. It remains the best possible TV knitting since it is completely mindless stockinette. I weighed my cake and I am past the halfway mark on this yarn. The yardage on this skein is... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress (4)

What a difference being comfortable has made. Since I swapped back to magic loop earlier this week I've made a ton of progress. And bonus! My hands aren't hurting after I've been knitting for a few minutes. Maybe at some point I'll try again with 16" circulars, if I can try with longer tips. For... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress (3)

You can see my progress from the stitch marker where I was in my previous update. It's less than ten rounds, mostly because I was working on my shortie socks nonstop until Monday. I also ended up switching back to doing magic loop on 40" circulars because I noticed that my hands were really uncomfortable... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress (2)

I've made a few inches of progress on this hat since the last time I showed it. It's nothing too much to write home about but at least it is still growing. I'm still completely in love with the colors in this yarn, and really enjoy seeing what is coming next as I knit each... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat progress

I ended up pausing for a few days while I waited for a new set of needles to arrive. This is my first fingering weight hat, and I didn't have any 16" circulars in the right size. For all of my other hats I've always either just done magic loop the whole time or used... Continue Reading →

Musselburgh Hat started

I have really been enjoying the Needles at the Ready podcast for a while now. Recently Kevin has decided to try his hand at yarn dying, and I was lucky enough to snag some of his yarn during a recent shop update. I wanted to choose a project for it that would be simple and... Continue Reading →

St. Paddy’s Hat

I was browsing new patterns over the weekend and ran across this St. Paddy's Hat. It seemed like a good way to use up some of the wool I had bought for Christmas Balls that never got made. It also seemed like good practice for doing stranded colorwork. Even though I made several colorwork projects... Continue Reading →
