First – here’s the too small hat. It is super stretchy and actually fits on my head but it doesn’t come down far enough to cover the ears so it goes on the donation pile and I started again last night. It will keep someone’s head warm – just not the person I started it for.
So last night I found another pattern I wanted to try and pulled out some different yarn. I’ve only knit a few rows but I can tell that the stitch pattern on that hat will not make the hat very stretchy at all. That’s not a good thing when I’m guessing on size and the yarn was sort of obscuring the pattern.
So this morning — back to square one and what I hope is my third and final attempt to get a hat I want to gift.
So the pattern I have settled on is Mini Romi Hat . The yarn – some Malabrigo Finito which is a super soft feeling yarn – I made a cowl of it and it is so wonderful against your skin – it will make a very comfy hat I think — I hope — it dang well better! LOL
So today – hmmm I think it’s going to be a mostly lazy day. A bit of laundry, but it’s a cold, gray, stay in your comfy chair and get that dang hat done kind of day. And I need to figure out yardage for the mystery quit so first to start some breakfast and then get that yarn wound.
Oh- and with the finish of the last two hats which I added to my Sticks ‘n Strings page — I have now completed a total of 15 UFOs this year and then I started AND completed an additional 29 new projects! Not bad.
