It has been a while since I gave a progress report on my knitting. I am not the speediest of knitters, so you haven’t really missed much, but I am slowly knitting my way to hat success and thought you might like an update.
I have now completed two hats!! I have finished the blue hat that I started a while ago. I like the colour, but it is a bit of a funny shape! It is a little bit long and thin so I haven’t worn it as
much as the purple hat. However, I am still proud of the lovely shaping on the top, which worked well; courtesy of Judith L. Swartz.
My two completed hats have really been prototypes. They are made with very cheap yarn that is not particularly fluffy or beautiful. So, on completion of hat number two, I decided that I was ready for some lovely woolly yarn in beautiful colours. After much contemplation, the purchase was made and hat number three is under way!
Sylvester is loving my new hobby and can’t quite believe how lucky he is to be able to sit and watch moving wool for hours on end. Unfortunately, I am not sure that his passion for knitting is really benefiting my new creations. He sits and watches very patiently, but quite often, he just can’t resist joining in!
