Unfortunately, I made the mistake of leaving a number of my hats in Sweden when we left at the end of the summer. So I decided that it would be a fun project to make a few more – and I have been really enjoying it.
There’s something very satisfying about making a hat, isn’t there. For a start, they’re small so they’re finished in double-quick time. And for a second thing, the knitting speeds up as you get towards the top! That’s always a nice feeling – “Oooh, I might finish this tonight!”
I also want to make some more items that co-ordinate with each other so you could make a hat and a scarf set, for example. I enjoyed knitting a co-ordinated collection for myself last year as you can see in my last blogpost, so I am going to see if I can add a few more sets of items to add to my website.
I like using doubled yarns as they really do seem to make warmer items, as I wrote about here. So I have used the same approach with this new beanie hat and I am loving how this is coming out.
I hope to finish that this weekend, and then I will add the pattern to my website. I’ll post more details as soon as I have that ready.
Until then – Happy New Year Knitting!
