After several thwarted attempts at starting a hat, I finally got what I wanted. This is in the same two yarns I used for Whingari’s poncho.
Here’s a few pix:
That heather color is always so shimmery.
That’s a 3×3 ribbing in plum and then just straight knitting once I switched to the heather.
I know, there’s nothing particularly revolutionary about that hat — except to me. This is the first project where I’ve switched yarns. I try to integrate a new ‘something’ with each project, so that my skill and experience increase while I’m enjoying the process.
Next? I have another ‘new’ element planned for this hat.
Off to knit so that I can try what I was thinking about last night…
