On my way to FO’s
As for the knitting front – I knit 2 pink hats – one for Tamara and one for Taja, daughter of my friend Natasa. Here’s how Tamara’s hat looks (Taja’s is exactly the same, just has a blue crochet flower attached to it):
The pattern is the same as the one for my pointy hat (Drops), just the result is totally different because of the yarn which I used to make this extra girly hat. I love this pattern – it’s so simple and can be adapted in many different ways. No need to worry if you cast on enough stitches to make a hat wide enough and you can easily make more or less pointy hat. This might be the reason that a lot of knitters are so fond of short row technique (though, obviously, this hat is made with very simplified short rows).
I also work on the Cobblestone for Grasswire – I have decided to work on the sleeves with doublepointed needles, so it’s going a bit slower than I hoped. I have finished the body and one sleeve. Hope to cast on for the other sleeve tonight. My wish is to finish it in three weeks.
