And the Knitting Resumes

The weather's consistently cooler these days, and that means knitting's back in my crafty corner! First, there's the Grimm Hat project, which I'd frogged since it turned out a bit too thick and cozy for my mom's taste - I'm now resuming a knitted hat that I'd started making with the yarn. I should finish … Continue reading And the Knitting Resumes

WIP: Grimm Hat

I started on the Grimm Hat (Pattern by Sue Perez) since my mom wants a thicker hat for colder mornings. This hat uses crochet for its construction, so I'm hoping it meets her expectations. I liked the oblique / diagonal stripes on the hat band. I ended up changing the join row - I'm unsure … Continue reading WIP: Grimm Hat

Torque Hat

I've gone from recently lamenting on not having WIP projects to having more than one! And I'm definitely not complaining. My Basket Case Cardigan is nearing completion, but I took a break from it to make my mom a hat. She doesn't usually wear hats, but increasingly colder winds in recent winters finally convinced her … Continue reading Torque Hat

A quick slouchy hat

I knit a quick slouchy hat last week, while a bad case of cold and cough got me bored out of my mind. Binge-watching serials didn't help much, and I thought I could knit while watching. But then, I didn't have the energy to tackle the larger projects that I've been working on, and decided … Continue reading A quick slouchy hat

An earflap hat for my sis

My sis asked me to knit a hat that's not too tight, covers her ears well and also has functional ties that she can actually tie up. We decided on an earflap hat with ties. I was dying to try out and learn intarsia in the round, so I thought this project would be suitable. … Continue reading An earflap hat for my sis

Ridged sideways hat

I had this beautiful skein of yarn that I wanted to make into a hat, highlighting its colors. I've made a lot of hats the usual way (knit round and round), quite a few with variegated yarn, and the colors finally look all mixed and splotchy. Of course, some color combinations look good that way, … Continue reading Ridged sideways hat

‘Ribersible’ hat — completed

So I had some free time over the end-of-year holidays, and I managed to complete the reversible ribbed hat, or 'Ribersible' hat, that I'd started making for my sister. She seems to be satisfied with it. (Phew! It's always "(s)he likes it... (s)he likes it not..." when you make something that's not for yourself...) When … Continue reading ‘Ribersible’ hat — completed

‘Ribersible’ hat

After that disappointment with the lacy cardigan that resulted in its being unraveled back into balls of yarn, my sister asked if I could make her a hat. We decided on another unraveling for that -- I'd made a crocheted shrug a long while back with a lovely pink-and-white-and-red yarn, and none of us have … Continue reading ‘Ribersible’ hat
