The last couple days have been cool and wet here. I suspect that those first white flakes are just around the corner. I am dedicating myself to knitting winter accessories for my family. This year (for a change) I even started with something for myself : )
I saw a few podcasters making a Sockhead Hat towards the end of the summer and I wanted to be like the cool kids too. I love this hat and the best part is that it makes fabulous on-the-go knitting. It's very portable and and you just go round and round for about forever. Then one day (not one day soon - this is an awesome fingering weight knit, but it's not magic), it's a hat.
Pattern: Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure
Simple and free. Awesome.
I only knit for 7 inches before starting the decreases so I could have the option to wear the brim folded or not.
Yarn: Fleece Artist Kidazzle
75 grams used
The perfect use for this lovely skein that was an unexpected gift from my friends.
I'm seriously tempted to cast on another one. Are you? You know you want to ; )
I'm linking up with Tami for FO Friday and with Wisdom Begins in Wonder for Fiber Arts Friday. Click over for oodles of yarny knitty goodness.
