In Which the Pirate Begins a Hat.
I’ve never been one to let leftovers go to waste. Perhaps I hold onto them a little longer than necessary (note to self: remove dead casserole from fridge) but when we’re talking about yarn, leftovers are great! A couple of years ago, I made this hat of Manos del Uruguay. It fits my head perfectly, which is more than I can say about most store-bought hats. I love the blue, gold and teal of the Stellar colorway, and the golden-tan of the ribbing was a perfect match for it. The only thing is… it doesn’t go with my new scarf.
Enter the leftovers. There is enough green from the scarf for the ribbing and a stripe, and enough golden-tan from the first hat for the body of the second hat (I hope). And it’s really nice to knit stockinette in the round for a change. I barely have to look at what I’m doing!
The babypants are glaring at me. I swear, I will work on them tomorrow. Honest! The baby’s due on the 16th now. I still have time, right? …right?
What hat pattern do you use?
It’s 12am Saturday morning. That cassrole is still in the fridge…
