I knit a second project! And if that isn't enough, I still like knitting! YAY!
This is the Tin Can Knits Barley hat
, made in the child size. I don't have a child to give it to, but I bought this yarn because it was pretty, not because pastels look especially good on me (they don't). I decided to make a child's hat, and with the leftover 100 yards or so, I'd make mittens to match. And then I'd hang onto them, in case any especially-girly girls need a gift.
|Garter section! Oooooh.|
I used Manos del Uruguay Maxima in Chrysanthemum (lot B), bought at Eat Sleep Knit. It's a worsted weight, but I believe is single-ply. I'm still learning these terms, so I may be wrong, but it didn't come apart when knitting like the Quince & Co. yarn did.
|Stockinette section! Ahhhhh.|
I loved seeing how all the colors came together. What color would come next?! I don't think I'll ever use a solid yarn again.
It was an easy knit, but I did learn a few things: changing needles, using double-pointed needles (my mom can't even do that!) (but she can do a lot more than I can), and making decreases! I highly recommend it. Maybe make one that can fit you! But only if you don't have a giant head and big hair like me.
I'll be back tomorrow with an exciting announcement from a blogger friend. See you then!
