I think I already told you I found this GREAT hat to knit and have a class. The Langfield hat by Martina Behm. I love her patterns. It’s very cool because it has a multidirectional look to it, and it is not knit in the round like a traditional hat. Something new and interesting as far as hat knitting goes.
So I made one (Hat #1)!
It was pretty small. Looks like cat ears, no? I was so afraid I would run out of yarn that I started the second section too soon and pretended that I really wasn’t stretching the first section too much to get it to fit around my head. But I was. Delusions of knitting.
So this happened…
Ripped it out to make that triangle bigger like it should have been in the first place. But then I decided, since I knew how to knit the hat now, I should really make it in a yarn that The Spinning Room carries, to have it as a class sample.
So I left that one up there as is, and made this one (Hat #2) with Noro Silk Garden:
So pretty and fits so much better. I’d show you it on the Styrofoam head, but I lent it to someone. Trust me, it’s bigger and is SO comfortable!
Then I re-knit the other one and finished that last night (Hat #1 knit again, so Hat #3):
It is not that bright. It is a tonal navy color. Love this pattern. And now that I’ve knit it three times, I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to teach it in a class. (Scheduled for April 30 & May7 at The Spinning Room!)
And speaking of classes, I finished my Diane shawl and I absolutely love, Love, LOVE it!
L O V E ! (Class scheduled for May 1 at The Spinning Room!)
On to the search for a spring/summer cotton-or-lightweight-yarn top/cardi/tee pattern. I’m thinking of doing Berry Creek.
