WIP: The Saga of the Hat
I started a hat yesterday ...

Here's the first 1/2:


This is the same pattern that KellyK used for her baby set, but it's the "Children's" size.

Go here to read the Saga of the Hat (subtitle: The Day of Waiting Endlessly.)

I'm using Lion Brand Magic Stripes Jelly Bean -- not as crazy about it as I thought I would be. I like the yarn; don't like the colors or the pattern (or lack thereof) that it's making. I want to use KnitPick's Simply Stripes instead.

Oh, and now I'm unknitting the start of the 2nd half ... after 4 rows I discovered that I had begun to knit it inside out.

I see whatcha mean about it being just stripes in a "random" kind of order, but I would think DS would like it!! They are boyish colors, I think, although, since I am not now, nor have I ever BEEN a boy, I cannot be 100% sure.

This hat has some kind of bad shushu surrounding it!!

Carmell --

It's one of those hats where you knit one side (using a provisional cast-on), then you come back & get those lives stitches, and knit another hat in the other direction. When you're done, you shove the 2nd hat inside the 1st hat, and you have a double layer. You can use two different colors, too, but I didn't.

It also looks big 'cause I have it hanging down on a container that is too small to fill it. I'm hoping that washing & blocking will take the lumpiness away.[/quote]

That looks great!

And I really like the colors and striping--what's not to like? The wonkiness gives it wonderful character, I think!

OH! Your NIECE! Well, in that case, having been both a girl AND a niece, I can give it my FULL endorsement!

And, YES....machine washing & drying will fix all that lumpiness that I dont see.

Well, I have now managed to repair the inside-out knitting. Good thing I have another Size 3 circular here. I just *know* it's going to look so much better when I get it all done. :rollseyes:

And now, I think I'll go and order some WOTA for the 2 bags I still need wool for, and while I'm at it, don't you think I ought to throw in some sock yarn???

Julie, I love all the colors and the random stripes are fun. I am sure your niece will love it.
