A New Year and a FO

Happy (belated) New Year to everyone. I know it’s been a while since anyone has heard from me in blogland. Never fear, even though other things have managed to take up some time, I still have been knitting (ask anyone in my knitting group). If I were really good, I’d say “My New Year’s resolution is to go on a yarn diet, knit from my stash and blog more.” However, I am realistic and will make attempts to go on a yarn diet, knit from my stash and blog more. I’d rather live vicariously through others who have vowed to knit from their stash.

Since my last blog post (can’t believe the time has flown by), I have enhanced my stash, finished some projects, and joined Ravelry.

One such project finished is the Yarn Harlot’s Unoriginal Hat.

Thraven Unoriginal Ha

Pattern : Unoriginal Hat
Needle : KnitPicks Harmony US 11 (8.0 mm)
Yarn : Blue Moon Fiber Arts Leticia in Thraven
Notes : If you want a quick knit, this is it. This hat took me one evening to complete. The followed the written pattern and made no changes. I used the Magic Loop to do this. Casting on, I worked the first round flat, then joined in the round. I usually like the the look of the cast on row that way. It didn’t work too well for this version. The brim flared more than I liked. Next time, I’ll cast on and join right away.
