the last (almost) of the spindle-spun
I have had such fun making hats out of these little skeins of yarn! This one is definitely a child's hat. The two yarns are significanatly different weights, so I decided to go with it, and used the thicker yarn as a ridge at the turn of the crown. And I went with seed stitch to bulk it up even more.
Now I have to figure out what to do next. I want to make a pair of gloves for my brother-out-law, and I need to make a hat of whimsey for Em. Hmmm - sober gloves or silly hat? Yeah, he's gonna have to wait for the gloves.
I want to make a hat that's bright and happy and has a brim. You know those adds where the people are shopping online for a car, and they say, "An SUV" and a continent of SUV's appears, spreading out around them in every direction? In my head I now have a continent of bright happy hats with brims that want to be made. Some will have to wait for just the right person. (I think I could knit a fuschia pink penis hat that would look very happy, but I don't think Em would wear it much because she's not a dickhead. The people who ought to wear it wouldn't) Some of the hats are disappearing. A brim . . . more of the options are blinking out of possibility. Hmm . . . What do I have in my stash?
This is how my design process goes. Wanna come along for the ride?
