Last night I finished up the hat I have been working on for a good friend of mine.
For Christmas 2014 I had made her a scarf and a pair of fingerless gloves, so she wanted a hat to complete the set.
For her hat I used about half a skein of Patons Classic Wool Worsted in natural mix, and I used my size 7 clover bamboo needles to knit up the hat.
I had made a run out to Astoria and the neighboring towns of Warrenton ad Hammond and had gone to the JoAnn’s out there. I had wanted to see it in comparison to the JoAnn’s that is near where I live and compare the two. I had wanted to go to the coast so it was the perfect opportunity to go out to that Joann’s and get yarn for my friends hat while I was there.
I had also decided to use the seed stitch / British Moss Stitch to add some texture and to make some of the stitches pop, for accent.
As crazy as life is at the moment, and with as much as I have going on, hats are easy and quick to knit up, I got this hat done in less than a week.
