Two Finished Hats!

I’m knitting hats at the moment. I don’t have enough hats and I’m never mad about store ones, so now I’ve knit two with another on the needles. Two weeks ago (pre-Recruitment) I finished the Fisherman’s Beanie, from Rowan Coast Book:

. The hat fits really well, a bit big. It knit flat, but I got tired of that quite quickly and decided to join it. It moved much more quickly after that. I love that bit on a hat when you get to the decreases and think you’re almost done. Two hours later…. (Details of yarn and such here)

The next hat, my project for the week of sorority recruitment and this week was this Burgundy Ribbed Hat that I knit out of some gorgeous hand-dyed I got at iKnit. The yarn was thinner than I thought, but I swatched, cast on 112 stitches and went. I even figured out the decreases on my own. I love it. If you look carefully at that picture you can see my new piercing. My cartilage came out over the summer so Mom took me to get it redo Friday. (Hat details here)

Now I’m working on Straun, by Ysolda. I’ve done the nifty Invisible Cast-On and am increasing.
