Every year I tell myself that if I knit a really great hat, that I will like wearing it. I hate wearing hats, I live in Chicago. I need to wear hats. It never really works.
This year I'm going to make a really great hat from my own hand spun. Maybe that'll do it.
My hand spun in a little skein. I have more than 100 yards of an almost lace weight (it's heavier than true lace weight).
I'm not sure how much lace weight I'll need, I feel like I have enough.
This is what I'm working on. Adapting it to be a hat.
A crazy lace doily! I love it.
Here is my sample. This isn't quite big enough for a hat. I'll have to add more patterning to the edge. I'm going for a beret type cap. I need something bigger and slouchier to fit all my hair inside.
