So here we go. A hat. And it fits, and I wear it. I call that a winner.
I think if I did this again, I would do it in a mellower color. This is fairly bright for me, but I wear it when I want to appear saucy and bold.
I'm sure everyone knows Urchin, I knit this in Jaeger Natural Fleece, color #530, Bordeaux.
I liked the bumpy yarn with this pattern, it works so well.
I used one full skein, plus an itty bitty bit of the second to make the largest size. Grrrr... hate that, now I have an almost full skein mocking me from the stash.
I will have to find a pinhead to gift a bold, saucy hat.
So, do you notice all the mess in the background?
That mess is a huge packing mess. That's because my husband and I have decided to get out of the lower mainland.
Heck, we're not even planning to stay in beautiful British Columbia. Oh, no we have bigger plans. We are going east. East and east and east. And then a little more east, until we arrive in beautiful New Brunswick.
Then hopefully we will love it and buy a beautiful home in the country with a white picket fence and all my children will dress nicely every day, and mind their manners and play sweetly together and we will all live happily ever after. I'm hoping :-p
I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, maybe a lot, but I refuse to explore my inner self that deeply right now. There's to much to do.
And really, people, thank goodness I'm not pregnant right now! I'd just be a blubbering pile of ooze on the floor, if that were the case!!!!
