I wanted to share a picture (or two, or three) of the finished hat from yesterday's post. Here she is:
I love the finished project, I love the colors, I love everything about it! I just used a simple basic hat pattern (size 8 needles, 80 stitches, 2x2 ribbing for 8 rounds, knit straight for 5.5 inches, decrease at 8 points on the top) and it was a quick, simple knit. Here's a few gratuitous close-ups:
I just couldn't stop after I finished this one, I bought some merino roving and dyed it with some Kool-aid:
I used Peach Mango, Lemonade, Blue Raspberry, Strawberry-Kiwi, and Grape. Pictured above is half of the roving, the other half is already on the bobbin!
There was a bit of white left in the roving, and when all the colors started blending together when I was spinning it came out a little more pastel, but I still like it! I'm trying to spin it somewhat even and thinly, and I think I will navajo ply again. I'll be sure to check back in here when it's finished. :)
