Imagining hats

Well, the knitting has been slow lately. I’ve been oddly distracted, and knitting group hasn’t met consistently for months. But I am knitting. And imagining knitting.


Lately I’ve been thinking about hats. Lots and lots of top-down hats for all of my friends, my family, and my friends’ families. My imaginary output is surely staggering, while my real output equals almost nil.

Some of this vast imaginary productivity is inspired by reading Through the Loops! She makes an amazing amount of beautiful stuff all the time and knits hats as easy as a sigh. They always look super pretty too. I want to be liker her… So I started by looking at the free hat patterns on her blog. There are quite a few to choose from. I started with the One Day Beret, one of her many top-down hat patterns, but I'm not knitting it in one day.


I’ve only made a few hats top-down (actually, baby Joe’s hat may be the only one) but so far it’s going fine. I had a little trouble keeping my DPNs strait for the first couple rounds, but then things sorted themselves out. The yarn is some Noro that I got on clearance a while ago.

Maybe I’ll knit faster now that I have a new accessory.


What do you think? I got them on Monday.

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to the club! The club of four-eyed curly-haired busty brunettes, that is!

Those frames look so good on you; the off-rectangle shape frame your face well, and the arch of your eyebrows give good dimension to them, too. Plus...you can see now!

I'm sorry I couldn't post a reply to your blog sooner, but we still don't have internet in NM. I'm emailing from a coffeeshop around the corner.

Many stories of the road and the desert to tell you about. (I'm WRITING!!!!!! OMG, Hell hath frozen over. If I can do it after 6 months of slacking off, so can you girl.)

I'll try to call you this weekend when it's free.

No knitting here for me, but my roommate may teach me how to crochet a hole-filled beanie. I'm still working on that stupid malabrigo yarn.

I miss you. I miss the redwood trees that surround your home, the moss, the rain. It might just be the dry high desert talking now, but I think Puget Sound is calling me.
