Fast Hat finished!

I finished up this hat on Saturday night. It looks a little bell-shaped but it fits pretty nicely. Considering that I was making up this pattern as I went I think it turned out really well. It used up most of the leftover yarn from the shawl and it matches perfectly. Puzzling out how to... Continue Reading →

Fast Hat started

Since I had plenty of yarn leftover from my "It's That Fast" cowl, I decided to start on a matching hat right away. I'm making up the pattern as I go, based on the stitch pattern from the cowl. Hopefully it will fit ok when it is done. I started with a 3x3 folded brim,... Continue Reading →

Bricks Hat finished!

I actually finished this right before we left for the beach, but didn't get a chance to post it here. I am pretty happy with how this one turned out. The colors look great and I like where the gradient begins and ends. Now this one can also be added to my holiday gift pile.... Continue Reading →

Bricks Hat started

I decided to start on another hat now that my Halloween socks are done. To be fair I did also knit a few rows on my Heel Toe Do Si Do socks as well, but I really wanted a quick break from sock knitting. Given how fast this hat is going it will probably be... Continue Reading →

Beanie Lines finished!

Well that didn't take long. That was a very fun, quick project. I think it turned out really well. The ribbing means it should fit a wide range of people but the "lines" made it slightly more interesting to make and a little more interesting to look at. I'm nearly done with my xmas gift...

Beanie Lines progress

As predicted, this simple project has been flying along. In fact, I'm just about to the decrease section, so it should be finished later tonight or tomorrow. My recent colorwork project was fun but it's always nice to make something that is so simple and fast. It feels great to get something on and off... Continue Reading →

Beanie Lines started

I finished one hat and immediately started on another one. I only have a few more to make to finish my planned gift knitting for this year so I'm eager to get them done. This colorway is a bit more subdued but it's a good match for this pattern. An entirely ribbed hat may or... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat finished!

This adorable hat is all done! I absolutely loved making this project. The yarn (Knit Picks Swish DK) was surprisingly nice to work with, and the colorwork was a ton of fun. This one is intended as a gift but I loved making it so much and I love the finished object so much that... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat progress (4)

And now we finally see why this is named the Unbearable Hat! This project has been really fun so far and I am enjoying the colorwork practice. I have still not quite mastered catching my floats but I'm doing a passable job. This sure seems a lot less bunched and uneven than my first puffin... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat progress (3)

I made it up to the colorwork section. It has been a while since I've done any stranded colorwork so it took a few rows to get back into the rhythm of it. Hopefully I didn't mess up the tension too much. It is hard to judge when you are using circular needles that are... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat progress (2)

I somehow managed to get the rest of the brim done already. If it looks like a mess in the photo it's because it sort of is. The brim gets folded and stitched together with the cast on edge at the same time as you are changing needle sizes, so there are currently 3 sets... Continue Reading →

Unbearable Hat progress

I haven't made a ton of progress on this hat. It's partially because I spent the whole weekend finishing my socks instead, but it is also because I've been playing games more and knitting less. I took up crocheting and knitting as a hobby partially because I wanted to work on something tangible instead of... Continue Reading →
