So for those of you who’ve been paying attention, knitting hasn’t happened for me in a few months now. I simply haven’t been up to it, which is saying rather a lot since I tend to knit in order to keep sane ;-).
You also might remember that I have a couple of sweaters waiting to be made. For that to happen, I need to be able to function, since they all require being able to comprehend the various patterns.
So I thought that it might be an idea to start with something small to get me back into the swing of things, and considering that I needed a new hat anyway, a hat it was going to be.
The pattern I used is Duality and it was fairly simple to make, but just enough to it that you still need to pay attention. I ended up making the Adult Medium, though I went with 8.5″ instead of the called for 8″ because I like my hats on the slouchier side. That said, I could have gone a little longer still because man, for all that this hat is supposed to be slouchy, it really isn’t that much. I would definitely make it again, though.
I’ve cast on for a dog sweater, which I really hope I can figure out because it isn’t the most comprehensively written patterns out there (at least, it isn’t to me, but that might say more about me than the pattern). Fingers crossed?
