A Different Take On Hats

Sometimes you just can't resist temptation. I fought the urge to knit a Woolly Wormhead hat as long a I could. My recent issues with the Skyline jacket gave me the excuse I needed. On Friday I started the Marrow Joe, finished the knitting on Saturday and grafted and blocked it yesterday. Today I added the pompom and now have another hat for the "hat basket." This hat can easily be knitted in a day, but I took my time and worked on this and the baby sweater this weekend.




Specs:

Pattern: Marrow Joe from "Going Straight - A New Generation of Knitted Hats" by Woolly Wormhead
Yarn: Idena Juvell in the blue/rose/green colorway and Idena Villmark in Navy
Needles: 5 US Colonial Rosewood
Started: January 24, 2008
Finished: January 28, 2008

I started hat #2, Windward, at work today in Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK. Not sure if this is the right yarn and once again will reserve judgement until I've got a little more done.

This year I'd like to stretch my wings a little more and finally get around to completing and submitting my Master Knitting Level II package. Last year I focused mainly on socks and would like to focus more on garment design. I've got some ideas floating around and only time will tell whether I'll be able to bring them to fruition.
