I am planning to continue my series of posts on the quilt retreat I attended at the Missouri Star Quilt Company but I thought I would throw in a quick post to show a hat I knitted for my partner John.
It’s the first hat I made him. He asked for a gray hat and I thought I was knitting him a gray hat but a couple rows into knitting it and finally in direct sunlight with the yarn, I discovered the yarn was actually dark green with grayish undertones. (Oh I better explain – it was yarn someone gifted me – a beautiful soft nubby wool – and pulled it out of my stash in a semi-dark room).
He was still happy with it so I finished it for him. Here are some photos, and yes it’s my one and only hat knitting pattern I know. There might come a day in which I try a new pattern…perhaps!
In the first two images below, you can see the dark green:
But in this image below, which I guess was in a different light, it looks gray:
So it’s like I knitted him TWO HATS (ha!) – a dark green one and a gray one (smile).
I am pretty excited about the yarn I am using for the next hat I am knitting (which is for me!) and will blog about it sometime in the future.
Now I will return to reading the blog posts of the knitters I follow that are busy making quadruple layered cabled (I made that up) Fair Isle Icelandic sweaters with wool they spun and then dyed themselves…lol…
