Four Hat Limit

Apparently four hats is as many as I can knit in a row.

I was going along, feeling like I was kind of in the groove, cranking out hats and feeling pretty good about it- I mean, you can never have to many hats, right?

Then I finished number 4 on thursday night and I knew I had to move on.

So here we go.
New project.

Vintage Mood

In a blend of Frank-Felix, Griff, and Coco (to start)

The construction on this is really interesting-
You start from the center back, working upward and over the shoulders, increasing on the outside edges to create the shoulder caps and fronts, finishing with an integrated shawl collar. Then you pick up stitches around just about at the bustline and work the rest down from there.

What is really cool about that is that when you wrap the fronts over, the orientation of the stitches is changed and horizontal stripes become vertical stripes.

So it seems really promising from a stash-utilization perspective.
And it’s written for bulky weight yarn, so it should be a fairly quick knit.

Feels good to have a plan.

    Welcome to your new dog buddy –
    Love the Monkey cap!
    If you don’t have one, you need to get a Shepherd’s Crook – they are invaluable at catching even the canniest sheepies. John got one from Santa Claus a couple of years ago, and he loves his. I think I got it at Premier… T.

    thanks Tina-
    I have a crook, but perhaps don’t know how to really use it to best effect! How exactly does The Shepherd catch them up with it?
