when it's not just a hatWednesday, January 22, 2014
Sometimes, so much satisfaction can be derived from the simplest of patterns. I can't even begin to tell you how finishing this hat in less than twenty four hours felt. I have made my share of hats. I love them. And I love how it feels when you give them away. But this one seemed extra special. Maybe it was the fact that I haven't had that quick of a knit in a while. (Although, this pattern is even faster.)
Or maybe it was because my sweet mother sent me the yarn along with the pattern. Enough yarn for two hats. So that I can give someone a warm hug for their head and keep one for myself.
Pattern: Candide Sailor's Watch Cap (Love how they spelled purl.)
Yarn: Berrroco Lodge
Needles: size 10
A two hour delay this morning because of the temperatures dropping below zero. I've been hoping for that email that tells us that they cancelled school. I have my hot coffee. Three sleeping children. And a hat to knit.
