A hat in progress

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.

20131208_1I 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!

  1. Congratulations on the weight removed. Lost always sounds like it could be found again
    And thanks so much for the hat pattern – just what I need.

    • Thanks – I hate “like” buttons so you won’t find them here. 🙂 the blog is mostly sort of a journal for me of what I’m working on – and a way to share quilt patterns easily – and whether some one “likes” it is just not something I care about. LOL

  2. Woohoo, congrats on the weight loss! Weight watchers is great, since it works and allows you to eat real food. And I love that hat. I just added it to my ever growing favourites on Ravelry.

  3. That’s great! I recently lost about 30 pounds on Weight Watchers. A friend insisted that I try it with her, and I am so glad she talked me into it.

  4. I love your hat. It looks like a good choice of yarn. And congratulations on your weight loss! I’m working on the same thing! (And I’ve downloaded the hat pattern.)

  5. The hat looks very good. Isn’t it so nice to have other choice yarns about to choose from? Congratulations on the weight loss. I need to do that also. Think I’ll go over to that WW site today and check it out.
