So, before I talk about my new hats I need to fall on my sword. This blog fell by the wayside. I don’t know why. It just did. Also, I need to get back to my list of patterns and remember what I decided to make and add all the new ones I’ve fallen in love with recently.
I’m currently working on a cowl I fell for at Stitches East. It’s knit in Berroco Sundae yarn. Which is luxuriously soft and the color is an eggplant purple. I love it deeply.
And now hats:
This is the train tam. Mine seems to be a little bit more beret like, which is great. Except it does feel a touch big. I think I’m going to soak it in hot water and block it a bit. It was going to be my new fall hat, but I haven’t really fallen for it yet. Maybe once I block it.
This is cowabunga. This was my first exercise in knitting two colors in a pattern. I think it’s like low level intarsia. I’m not entirely loving it yet. The wave pattern is a little too tense, but my niece Allie loves it. I think I might try to make it again since it did not take very long once I figured it out.
Next up is figuring out Christmas presents. But right now is a cup of tea, my couch, West Side Story, and lovely lovely new cowl.
