My New Obsession
Like Cara, I too am a creature of repetition. Sometimes I find a project that I like so much that I just can't stop until I am literally "sick to the stomach, can't stop knitting this until I have knit them all or I want to throw up if I see that yarn or project one more time". My obsession? Baby hats from Susan B. Anderson's Itty Bitty Hats book. I've owned this book for a few months now and loved the patterns. I was busy with other larger projets last month, and then crack, had a problem and needed a quick project(s) to make me feel better.
I've feeling so much better.. the sun is shining, colors are happy, FO's all over the place!
Pattern: Football from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: Debbie Bliss cashmerino dk in light blue, Premiere cotton in tahki color and leftovers of DB cashmerino dk in white
Measurements: 6-12 month size
Started: April 2, 2007
Finished: April 3, 2007
Other Details: I didn't understand the instructions for the top loopy sprout thing, so I just made my own "tassle pom pom". I also went down to a US6 since I used a slightly thinner yarn.
Pattern: Cherry-o! from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: Rowan Handknit cotton in white and green, Debbie Bliss cotton dk in red
Measurements: I think I did the 6-12 month size
Started: April 3, 2007
Finished: April 4, 2007
Other Details: The Handknit cotton has some sweet ass row gauge, so this hat took only about an hour to knit (not including the top details).
Pattern: Basic Hat from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: Artful Yarns Candy #9352
Measurements: 6 month size
Started: April 4, 2007
Finished: April 5, 2007
Other Details: I was never too intrigued by this yarn until I found this vintage looking colorway at the Fabric Place last week. Who knew that the Fabric Place had yarn?!
Pattern: Ribbons from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: The brown is Zara #1663, the green is Rowan Cashsoft dk
Measurements: The green is a 0-6 month size, the brown is 6-12 month
Started: April 5, 2007
Finished: April 9, 2007
Other Details: I knit these two hats tandem style. The hat is very basic with some eyelets thrown in there. I have a million ideas in my head for different ribbon/hat color combos. I am sure you will see more of these in the future. To get really inspired for these hats, I made a stop last Thursday at the Paper Source.. one of my favorite places :)
More hats are on the way! I'm addicted :)
