In Which the Pirate Finishes the Knitting Part of It.
In an effort to get this hat finished while it’s still cold enough to wear it this year, I finished knitting it earlier this week… and then spent far too long angling the camera, myself, and the bathroom mirror to get a good picture of it. It’s still unblocked here; the lining isn’t sewn down yet, and I’ve left the lifeline in for insurance, because I’m not 100% sure that the way I worked the decreases will block out smoothly.
This weekend I plan to do all the finishing work and get some good photos, and then I can write up the pattern for publication! I’m pretty excited about releasing my first pattern of 2018, and hopefully I’ll have the time to design and knit and write some more before the year is out. I’d like to get back to my purple cabled socks next. After that, who knows?
There’s also been some progress on the second of my green Cakewalk socks – it’s about halfway through the leg now. I’ve been knitting while watching YouTube videos (watercolour tutorials, interestingly enough) because I can’t knit and watch TV or movies very well. At least, not if I want to keep track of the plot, characters, and dialogue!
