What fun was this hat to knit! This is “Knot Head” and I used a super yarn that is new to me: Gaia’s Colors. The colorway I used was called “cliodhna thistle” I think it so interesting to see the yarn in the hank, and imagine how it will knit up and below is this yarn before it was turned into “Knot Head”. This yarn was particularly nice to work with, it is tightly plied and almost feels like silk when you are knitting with it. I hear it is a real workhorse of a yarn so I imagine it would make some mighty fine socks. You sure can’t beat the colorways!
I knit this hat when I was on the road and needed an easy pattern that didn’t require a lot of concentration. This hat
did the trick as you basically cast on and knit away for about a little over 10 inches for the small size. Then there’s a little detail involved in getting the ties done, but they were not too difficult.
It feels good to get the post done. If any of you are playing close attention you will note the snow in the picture, and yet it’s May. Well, I do live in Northern Minnesota, but even our snow has melted. The real story is I have not been able to give this blog the priority I wanted to lately. I have been getting the knitting done, but posting and writing about it has been tough for me to get done. I’ll keep at it though! I intentionally didn’t set a deadline for knitting all the patterns in the book as I wanted to allow for the ebbs and flows that come along with life.
Cheers & Knit On !
