My first hat. I finished knitting this about a week ago, but I actually FINISHED it tonight. Took it off the needle. Gathered the top. Sewed the seam. Wet it a bit to block it a bit. It is drying on a 12 oz. frozen whipped cream bowl. I couldn't find anything else that would be 'little kid' size in my home of the giants. The colors are a bit less bright in real life. It is made with Wool-Ease and is soft and warm. I intend to send it to F.I.R.E. for the Dulaan Project. I have two crocheted hats and hope to finish another before the mailing deadline. We'll have to see how that goes!
The hat was interesting to knit. I think the variegated yarn would have striped more evenly if this hat were knit in the round. When I learn to do that, I'm going to try this pattern that way and see what happens.
In the meantime, I need to try another pattern and/or yarn/fiber and see what turns out!
Mason Dixon strikes! This my first Warshcloth. It may be my last. I felt like I was just trying to get through to get through... I was not feeling the JOY of Warshcloths. I really have a time remembering that counter-clockwise thing when I'm purling. The warshcloth is forgiving of that, so when I need reminding, it'll make good practice! :) And, when I goof up, I won't have to fix it. After all, it's just a warshrag!
