I really love knitting hats. They're fast and fun and small and I usually can't figure out how to effectively wear them but that doesn't stop me.
This is the Cherry Soda/Orange Soda pattern from Thea Coleman's With a Splash Of... series. I love Thea's designs and this pattern was great to start with. It wasn't difficult at all, even with the lace chart. I think it helped that it's made from DK-weight yarn, so you aren't dealing with skinny strands of yarn and tiny little needles.
I used Madelinetosh DK in Forestry for this hat, which I bought at Eat Sleep Knit on Black Friday.
I love the movement of the colors in this yarn, and all tosh yarns. It's never boring!
You can find my Ravelry notes here. You'll notice I finished this almost two weeks ago. I've just been a little behind lately.
|I took this one before the others, without any makeup--yeesh.|
I have two other projects in the works now, so I hope I can get those posted here soon!
