I love this little hat.
It took me forever to knit, but it was a nice learning experience.
It was my first colour work, stranding work, knitting with 2 hands, following a chart etc...so, big project.
But nice and simple given that you only use 2 colours per row. I love the little band for the lining. When I steam blocked the flap down It was such fun! I love how wool just relaxes and does what you want it to do.
I would knit this again! Thanks Carolyn.
And by special request, I present the wheel:
and neat little gear thing-y
Neat little holes for decoration:
And more Christmas knitting:
Patons SWS in Natural Plum. I love these colours. The pictures don't do it justice--they are a very rich jewel tones.
This is going to be a Booga Bag for my sister. This time I am going to use 3 balls, as I learned my lesson from last time.
I know this is a quick knit, that's why I haven't started before now. I just plain old ran out of time.
Remind me to start November 1st next year, OK?
