Fran: Me Again!
Jon's been studying all week so I've had the evenings free for knitting. I decided to try this very intimidating looking hat and guess what?! I did it! In the process I learned how to read a chart, how to strand (well, I actually already knew how to do that) and how to weave (if you have to carry a yarn across five or more stitches you need to weave them in as you go.)
So, here is my hat....
In case you can't tell, those are snowflakes. (Yes, almost 90 degree weather inspired me to knit snowflakes!)
I messed up when I started the body but I am totally okay with leaving it! I figured the brim is folded up and will hide my big mistake. I was so tired one night while I was knitting that these little designs started looking like Pacman Characters. (They were moving and everything! I decided it was time for bed at that point.)
Here is a closeup of the brim.
