A new hat

Since my “Bella is Creative” blog has been taken over by a story, my hat has to come here. I started it last night. I am using my Islander hat as a ‘template’, I have knitted 4″ so far.

So far I am averaging 2″ a night, if I keep this pace up, I will finish in within a weeks time. There are a few reasons it has taken me two evenings to get to 4″. One is I knit really slow, yes really. Two is I stop after knitting one or two rows to measure it, and to admire how perfect my stitches are.

As soon as I get 4-½” of K2, P2 ribbing I can start on the cables. I am thinking I want to taper it at the top but I haven’t completely decided.

The yarn is some I found in my supplies. It is a spruce green and sparkly, it’s called Dazzle. I don’t remember what I originally bought it for.

New hat

The other day I told a friend about a hat I had made. She didn’t seem to understand what I was saying so I decided to show her.

Problem was, when I went to find it, I couldn’t. I asked Gwen if I had left it with her. She didn’t have it. I looked through all my boxes and bins. No brown beret. It was upsetting. Not only could I not show my friend, I had no hat to wear to church this winter.

Since Em was coming to the City today, I decided to go to TJ Maxx to look for another hat and found this one. Tigger said he thought it looked good on me, Em said it was nicer then the other one. So now I can be styling with my new hat.
