I decided yesterday I need to make two hats. I was even going to break out the Wollmeise but after knitting the ribbing, decided I didn’t like it in Wollmeise. I wanted a cushy, wooly soft warm hat and while Wollmeise shows stitch definition really really well, I wouldn’t call it soft and cushy. It feels more like a cotton yarn to me – which is just fine and I can’t wait to make a sweater out of some of it – but it just wasn’t what I was envisioning for the hat.
So stash diving I went — looking for something “manly” among the many colors and came up with some thing that was exactly what I had pictured in my mind – it is so soft and will make a great feeling hat.
I also changed patterns from my first attempt since this is sock yarn. It’s the Scraptastic hat and although mine isn’t scrappy, I think it’d be a great way to use up those left over sock yarns.
It will be a day of a bit of this and a bit of that I think. I load of laundry done and put way – another load started. I forgot I had a storage box of winter clothes in one closet so need to see what’s in it — I can see a couple things through the box that I never did like so I think I’ll start a Good Will bag and clear some of that out. I just might gain another yarn storage tub! LOL And the bedroom definitely needs some tidying. And of course there’s more hat knitting to be done.
First I think some brunch is in order – and my own little celebratory brunch it will be since I’m quite pleased with myself at the moment. LOL I started Weight Watchers online on Oct. 6 and now, ten weeks later there’s 35 pounds less of me. I’m very happy with that!
