Wheels are Turning Hat
Isn't Frodo cute? I love how he stares outside and waits sometimes patiently for me to open that door. If you haven't noticed before, I am a lover of the color purple. I have been blasting through the odds and ends of my leftover yarns. This is the last of it. I created a warm snug hat to go with my many purple scarves. This yarn is Malabrigo and other scrap purples striped in the body of the hat.
The brim is a simple folded edge where I knit the cast on edge onto the knitting. I like the clean look and of course there is minimal thread burying. At the crown of the hat I was in the mood for something different. So I decided to decrease like wheel spokes (that word just doesn't look like it's spelled right). It was a fun design and it went fairly quickly.
Now all we need is some chilly weather. Oh and would you believe the electricity went off briefly in the middle of the night. At 2 o'clock in the morning I was resetting the alarm :/ I hear whispers of "buy a house generator" in my ears. I am getting too old for this kind of excitement.
